Last Night of the Brexits

Fri March 29 at 9:00 PM, In de Wildeman
Kolksteeg 3, 1012 PT Amsterdam, Netherlands (Map & Directions)
Celebrate/mourn Britain's exit from the EU.
Unless a miracle happens and the UK comes to its senses, it will leave the EU on March 29th. (The actual time of exit is 11pm UK time, which is midnight Amsterdam time.)

Join us as we mark the end of the UK's difficult membership, the loss of our rights, and the rise of damaging right-wing populism.

Would love to but I'll actually be in the US on Brexit day! Hoping NL will let me back in when I fly back with my UK passport. Sigh.

A meetup sounds good.

I'll be there (crying) (metaphorically).

Eek, just saw the time. Amending to: if it starts earlier than that, I'll be there, and probably past that time, but if it only starts at 11 I'm pretty sure I won't be able to muster the courage to venture outside. :P

It's 11pm only because we're at Paradiso that evening for a gig, and can't guarantee making it to the Wildeman any earlier than that. Feel free to arrive as early as you like!

Ah, I hadn't seen the time. Yeah, since I'm coming from Utrecht 11 pm is too late for me as well. So I'd be part of an earlier shift as well.

Ok, will shift to 9, just bear in mind we won't be there straight away.
posted by daveje at 3:07 AM on March 9, 2019

I'll be there at about nine-ish.

Note for people from the The Hague/Leiden/Rotterdam area: there's limited or no train traffic to/from Leiden then, so getting to Amsterdam might take a bit longer than usual and getting home might take quite more than a bit longer.

Soooo... What happens now, with the extension? I'm more for a mad party celebrating the revocation of A50 really šŸ˜‰

The SI has been passed, which means that whatever happens, Brexit's definitely not this Friday. But it's still a good excuse for a drink.
