Oficial dinner of Bearcelona.09

Last night was the official dinner of Bearcelona.09 traditionally held at El Puma restaurant. It’s a bufet libre or “all you can eat” kind of place. Very fitting for Bearcelona’s theme for this year. The attendance at the official dinner was less than former years. This time there were only about one-third as many as the last time I attended.

A number of friends were seated at the table next to mine…

Looking around the table, I was surprised to see just how many LJ’ers that were there. I am sure there were probably others in the room.


iberianbear is in town as part of his vacation. I was able to catch up with what has happening with “José”. And next to him is susobear, who works in London.

And on the other side of the table we find…

whereispaco y Kevin

Both whereispaco (center) and Kevin (left) are DJs this year for Bearcelona.09.

A little further along the table we encounter…

palindinmd y neoclyps

gorkabear’s good friend, palindinmd, is seated to the right of neoclyps, gorkabear’s boyfriend from Paris.


neoclyps seemed to be enjoying himself.

And what official dinner wouldn’t be complete without gorkabear himself?

You mean neoclyps is the famous Dominique - bus driver Husbear of Xavi's?

And as for iberianbear - well, he's a sexy hottie too! :-)

The famous Dominique

Yes, that's him alright. I have met Dominique a couple of times when he has been in town visiting Xavi.

And iberianbear gets around too. I have known him for about eight years.

Oh my, all those handsome Spanish bears - and you in the midst!

I do not suppose you ran into Alfonso Fuente during the weekend?

I hear that many bear events have down attendance this year due to the economy. Here in the US, IBR in San Francisco was evidently way down. Texas Bear Round Up evidently bucked the trend and had attendance way up this year, over 1200 I hear that were registered. I guess it is due to Dallas being fairly easily accessible to the rest of the country and lodging rates being much lower than most cities of similar size.

Not all of them were Spanish bears: whereispaco is from the States, fellow DJ Kevin is British, and neoclyps is French.

gorkabear had told me that many more attendees had pre-paid this year than previously, but they did not choose the most expensive "pack". For people travelling from the US with a hefty air-fare, for example, a few more euros is not that important. But for locals, the price can make the difference in attending.

Chuck, I didn't buy a pack at all

I haven't seen Alfonso around town for quite a while, so he probably doesn't live in nearby Badalona currently.
