@ Super Bob - we can smoke stuff in the Melkweg, can't we! :wink:

The rest of the planning is shaping up and details will be posted as to where the meet up will be and of course what the plans are for a after party. If any locals of A'dam have any other ideas let us know here please. Thanks in advance.

Quickie question for anyone who's bought Ticketmaster tix from the UK - how long did they take to arrive?
The site says less than 2 weeks but that's cutting it pretty fine..

Right, unless there is any objection from the local group, I think that SuperBob's suggestion made earlier in this thread makes sense....

http://www.amsterdam.info/cafes/dezotte/

http://www.de-flux.org/dezotte/

The Price list, very nice for the beer lovers http://www.de-flux.org/dezotte/cafe.html

De Zotte Belgisch Bierproeflokaal
If you are seeking a variety of Belgian tastes and brews you should swing by De Zotte,
a cozy bar not far off the Leidseplein.
With a laid back atmosphere you can pass your day away while sipping your choice from one of their over 130 beers.

Address:
Raamstraat 29 (near Leidseplein)
1016 XL Amsterdam
+31-(0)20-626.8694
Opening hours: 16.00 - 01.00
Friday and Saturday 14.00 - 03.00
Kitchen hours 18.00 - 21.30

If we meet at De Zotte, from around 5 pm, those that would like to have a meal can do so and of course the pre-gig drinks. I phoned tonight and reserved a big enough table. 8) If you walk past the Melkweg on the way to the De Zotte, it might be a good idea to pick up the membership cards before the queuing starts.

The after party, I'll leave for the locals to decide.
The Melkweg stays open for awhile but I'm not sure if there will be any parties going on after Queen's Day?

There you go!
If you look on your ticket it should say "lidm. verpl. (3,00) - te koop aan kassa." Which is a membership card that allows you to entre the venue.
It's a dutch thingy that both Melkweg and Paradiso have. Valid for a few months. It costs an extra 3 euro's and can be bought at the entrance.

Hiya all!

To lovely MB: smoking is 'gedoogd' i guess, been to a lot of gigs at the melkweg where people smoked their butts off, in general it's okay it seems, as long as the playing band doesn't asked for a smoke-free enviroment (that would be very sisters-unlike). otherwise there will be signs hanging in the venue saying that smoking is forbidden during the gig..

for the membershipcards a 3euro, you can buy them in advance on the day itself, the venue ticketcounter is open from 16.00 - 18.00..

and cafe de zotte, hell yeah!

@ Super Bob ~ so we will be smoking! 8)
And do you have any idea if and where the after-party will be? Or do we make our own?

Just a warning to those who will be in the madness of Queen's Day in A'dam. Save your energy. And be safe with your travels.

Count Ebbhead in...

For bars, I suggest Cafe Molenpad on the Prinsengracht - if the weather permits you can sit outside. It's a 5-min walk from the Milky Way...

For Belgian beers, you can go to Golem, not too far from het Spui.

I'm really looking forward to this gig. Hope the Dutchies don't let us down. The crowd sucked big time when Skinny Puppy played last August.

Cheerio

EH
Are you prepared to slave again?
