Amsterdam meetup? July 8, 2007 10:22 AM   Subscribe

I know it is very short notice, but any NL dwellers interested in meeting in Amsterdam on the 10th, 11th, or 12th?

If a full-on official meetup is not practical, I would also invite any and all who are interested to join me on any of these evenings for free beer or other nice things.

Yeah. I'll be there.
I'll go there directly from work so I'm in for getting a quick bite somewhere.
The 12th is best for me.

Excellent, jouke, we shall make it the 12th then. Any other takers?

I wish! I've not been over to Holland yet.

Excellent plan. Not sure I can make it, write me down as a maybe.

Anyone flying back to America afterwards check the bottom of your shoes for little pieces of hashish you may have stepped on in a Coffee Shop. When the drug-sniffing dogs at customs get all excited, you can really run into bureaucratic delays at JFK.

Not sure I can make it, but I'll try to be there.

And yes, the 12th would be best for me as well.

Ok. I suggest we meetup at De Smoeshaan.
Inside it's a bruin café. So that's nice for the couleur locale for our UK guest. They have Belgian beers etc. too and I for one plan to eat something simple there right out of work.

It can be found just off the Leidseplein. Around the corner from the Café Americain.
So it's easy to find.
location in dutch. Tramline 1,2 and 5 will transport you from the Central Station to the Leidseplein. google maps location.
People who want to come can send me an email and I'll send them my mobile phonenumber for any last moment issues. Just in case.

Sounds excellent to me, jouke. What time do you propose?
posted by Meatbomb at 2:31 PM on July 9, 2007

Around 18:00 - 18:30? To have a bite. Amsterdammers who eat at home can join us around 19:00 - 19:30?
After that, if we feel like it, we can drift elsewhere....
But people will have my mobile phone nr.

Btw I see that my link that specifies the adress is wrong. The location and adress in dutch.

Hey... /long pause and sighing sound/ I love that city and just wanted to ask one of you to have a short Carlsberg for me.
posted by Area Control at 4:59 PM on July 9, 2007

Eh... /pause/ that's a Danish beer of course. So maybe the city you're thinking of is Kobnhavn.
But we'll have a Dutch beer for you. If that's ok too. Or a Belgian or German one.
Or a Czech one; personally Ill be having a couple of Pilsner Urquell.

Already made plans. I am not a happy puppy.
posted by Skyanth at 12:33 AM on July 10, 2007

heh, yeah, I bet that sounded dumb...I know it's Danish... but that's what I drink when I'm in Amsterdam... Just thinking about it makes me miss that place... Anyway- thanks!
posted by Area Control at 6:10 AM on July 10, 2007

Area Control, I'll have a locally produced Heineken for you. :)
posted by Meatbomb at 10:29 AM on July 10, 2007

Heh, Area Control, not dumb at all. I wouldn't be able to place Illinois on the map or Milwaukee for instance. So confusing the Danish with the Dutch would be perfectly understandable.

Sorry, I won't be able to make it. Have fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures on-line.
posted by rjs at 7:38 AM on July 12, 2007

Yeah, I really can't escape work. Have fun guys, and BRING US PICTURES.

Meatbomb and Snownoid are cool.
And Amsterdam is a great city to have a kroegentocht to unwind after working and studying hard.
I had a great time.

Darn, missed it :/ hopefully more luck next time...

Lantao; I'm definitely in for another, hopefully a bit bigger, mefi Amsterdam meetup.
