Amsterdam: I will soon be in you. More specifically, I will be in you between Friday, March 15 and Wednesday, March 20.
I would love to meet some neighborhood MeFites while I'm in town, and searching the archives it seems like there hasn't been a meet-up in a while. Is anyone up for getting together? My schedule'll be pretty open. Let me know!

I'd be down to come up again from Belgium during the weekend!

A while meaning weeks? ;-)

I could likely wander up that weekend at some point.

I should be around-ish about that time...anyone up for Ethiopian?

Fine by me.

What's your poison, eugenen?

Would beer and food be good enough, or would you rather do something cultural as well?

Food and beer would be plenty for me. And sometime that weekend (16/17) sounds great.

eugenen, are you familiar enough that you want to choose a spot, or are you leaving that up to the locals?
digitalprimate, I'd be up for that.

that restaurant we ended up at after the Bodegraven meetup, near Nieuwmarkt, was good too, but I've not been able yet to find it when sober....

Somehow, based on past meetups, I suspect that may not need to be a problem

My wife and I are in, if it happens that weekend (16/17).

Definitely would like the locals to choose where food and beer is to be consumed.

Ha! Back online, and what do I see? I'm in, and I think daveje and Elizabeth the Thirteenth might be along shortly, as well... (internet's down in Centrum).

Need a place to crash, Blasdelb? :)

Right, I suggest meeting up on the 16th, at Het Arendsnest from about 4 PM, then decide from there were to go for dinner. This is walkable from central station, is not as busy on a Saturday and does good beer and snacks.

Arendsnest is always good in my book. We should get a solid headcount and book one of the big tables, though. And maybe also make a proper IRL post? Or do we keep this one?

I was about to make a proper IRL post, but wanted to give a heads-up first. Feel free to post one.

Confirmed IRL Meetup post posted.
