Meetup, Euro-style?

I will be in Geilenkirchen, Germany, 6-16ish October - is anyone up for a meetup in that time frame? I think the evening of the 10th would work best as far as scheduling around business. Open to any of the cities in the area - Brussels, Dusseldorf, Koln, maybe even Amsterdam.

I was thinking a Brauhaus in one of the German cities might be best, but I'm open to anything.

maybe even Amsterdam

I am arriving in A'dam on the 11th, and would be up for Netherlands themed meetup action.

I'm living in Ghent for 5 months and I don't know anyone in the area so I'd love to meet some people from the internet. Anywhere is fine, if I got to choose, Amsterdam would be my pick.

This is, unfortunately, about two weeks prior to when I'm going to be in Germany and Amsterdam.

If you can't be there until later, maybe you can arrange for them to drop something three-dimensional in a secret place for you to find when you show up. It would be like finding an artifact from Uqbar to make you suspect that Tlön really exists.

Maybe later in the week would be better, then, if we're going to meet in Amsterdam. I'm not sure just yet when work will be finished - we should be done on Tuesday the 13th, but there's a significant risk that we'll run late. So, we can play it by ear or maybe pick somewhere closer to the border?

I'm here, but schedules have changed. If anyone's around this weekend, should we meet up somewhere near the border? I was planning on going to Cologne tomorrow, but I could make it somewhere else if need be. Next week looks like it will be pretty packed (Tuesday evening may still be free, since Wednesday is a slop day in the schedule), and I'm planning to try to get a flight out on Saturday. If anyone's still interested, let me know.
