Nice one. Flight has just been booked. :eek:
Arriving on the 23rd at lunchtime. So I hope others are. I don't want to sit alone in a coffee shop for an entire day with big red eyes. :lol:

I'd pay good money to see that. ;D :lol:

I'll be booking my flight later on today; I think options are limited, but I'm figuring to take a day or so on either side as well.

24 February 2009 is my birthday :D
What a great birthday :!:
My best friend Wouter bought me a ticket as a birthday present :notworthy:

So now just wait until the big day is coming
Cann't wait....................

And for your information I remember the 14th of April 1985, it was the first concert that I saw of The Sisters Of Mercy and it was in Paradiso Amsterdam.

The last time in Amsterdam, 2006, april 30th, we did meet up in Cafe De Zotte.
It is a fine place with Belgium Beer I remember

Hmmmm - found an Irish bar on Ledzeppelin in April which was OK, you could see the footie if you wanted, they had Magners (no draft though :( ), and they played some decent-ish music, including a song called "Alice" by a certain beat combo...

Is there a story to tell Zeno? I quite like that bar myself, largely cos of the Magners. The atmosphere is good too though, and I seem to remember it being next to a bar called the Three Sisters!

It's reasonably close to the venue too. :D

Have we found a suitable watering hole, then?

I'd prefer a bar where smoking is still "allowed". Though I thought there where none left in Holland ever since the ban earlier this year, I was nicely suprised last Saturday visiting a bar where smoking was no problem at all. :D
