I wanted to take a moment to thank shoshi for trying to help me while i was in Israel
The back-story is that I went to Israel to hire and train some people for my small office in Israel. I have many people working for our company in Israel so I wanted to come to speak.
I flew on points on business so I arrived late on Yom Haatzmaut. The airport was empty as was Eldan. I was first in line for everything but when I got to the hotel (Prima Royale) I realized I left my passport at Eldan. I am fotunate to speak hebrew decently as i asked them to hold the passport until i left (which they did) and fax to the hotel (which took many phone calls)
The hotel was just OK but i as always was just happy to be in israel. My first night I went to moshiko felafel on ben yehuda and had a shawarma. I walked to mamilla, had a drink and then passed out. The following morning I went to a few meetings and then came back and went to an excellent restaurant named eucalyptus outside the jaffa gate.
On thursday I went to Tel Aviv and stayed at the hilton (points) and was very happy. Unfortunately my stomach wasn't too pleased and i needed to call the states to get a prescription sent over for my stomach (which took lots of hebrew and patience), Finally at 3am, I took a cab to the 24 hr pharmacy to pick up my prescription. I was amazed at the amount of people on the street still at that hour and the amount of restaurants still open. On Friday night i went up allenby street and stopped in an irish bar for a few drinks. It was empty and the menu didn't make me comfortable, so the nice waitress walked me 200 steps to a courtyard off of allenby to a great little bar with an outside patio that had israeli music playing (This is my question-anyone know the name) which was tons of fun. I went back to the hotel and passed out. I woke up at 5am and realized i broke my glasses while sleeping. I went donstairs and they told me all is closed on shabbat and they tried to help me tape it. i went online and im'd shoshi who immediately responded. I drive around everywhere and found nothing open. When i gave up, i drove in the lighting stom to the port in tel aviv and serendipitously walked past an eyeglasses store open. He was amazing and gave me new frames in 10 minutes. I then went to dag-al-hadan which was also good.
I will be back in october and would appreciate if someone in t"a can tell me the bar i went to so i can return. Thank you again Shoshi...
