Amsterdam - let's hang!

I'm going to be up in Amsterdam next weekend and was wondering if anyone's around for a slightly last minute meetup on the Friday.

I mean, Friday the 13th, what could possibly go wrong?

Wish I could, but work is tight then. I will be there in spirit, please smoke a fattie for me.

"Remember, meatbomb asked us to smoke a fattie for me."

"Great, I've got some Shiva's Pubes, from the Greenhouse."

"Ah, that's shit, that is. That stuff is so weak, only the tourists will buy it. These days, I only smoke the Haze-based strains."

"OK, I've got some Sour Dingleberry. It's bred from a quarter of Sour Diesel, a quarter of Blueberry Bubblegum, and two quarters of Nevil's DingleHaze -- a plant that Nevil himself fertilized using his own shit. It's bound to take the High Times Cup this year."

"I'm allergic to any kind of smoke. Can we borrow one of the vapourizers from the house?"

"You people shouldn't be doing that stuff at all, you know. It's addictive and gives you brain damage."

"Would you care for a Plate of Beans?"

"Christ, what an asshole."

"OK, Take it to MetaMeetups, stat!"

Oh yeah! I'm in too. Only, unlike Phelpsy, for real.

I'll probably be there as well.
Any suggestions where to meet?

I don't know Amsterdam terribly well, living in the south as I do. Generally Mefi meetups do best in not-too-crowded but still decent pubs. Any recommendations or should I strike out and pick one at random?

Well, I won't be there, but you could try the "traditional" Amsterdam meetup cafe, Pacific Parc, or perhaps the IJsbreker next to the Amstel, or the Traffic or Van Zanten (50 meters/yards apart), a bit out of the center. All decent places where you can drink good beer and have a normal conversation.
