I guess that you most likely know the drill by now. ‘Cause as another week is coming to an end, it once again is time to look forward to those sweet days ahead, also referred to as the weekend. And whilst the sun will hopefully hang around for a little longer, I’d love to tell you all about the lovely events hosted in Amsterdam this weekend. So, let’s get right to it, now shall we?
Vrijmiboot – ‘T Ij, 24th of May
A couple of times already, I’ve told you about the infamous phenomenon called “vrijmibo’s” (Friday afternoon drinks) in Amsterdam. As the weather is looking really great, why not celebrate the beginning of the weekend on the water? Tonight, “Vrijmiboot” is sailing the waters of Amsterdam, and while enjoying the lovely view, some great music (read: disco, house, classics and the latest hits), you’re also able to share your talent with the world by claiming your spot and show the crowd how karaoke is done. An event with all the ingredients that will make this Friday one to remember!
Amsterdam Pizza Festival – Rembrandtpark 25th and 26th of May
Pizza, a dish oh so close to my heart and possibly a little too often on my plate. This weekend, at Rembrandtpark, an entire festival will be dedicated to honour pizza. You will be able to get your hands on some of the most mouth-watering pizzas made by the nation’s finest pizzamakers. From authentic pizza workshops, to some great vegan pizza’s and real Italian wine specialists, I’d say that there is something for everybody. So, to all pizza-lovers out there: beware and get ready to eat your heart out!
Bottelfeest – Chateau Amsterdam, 25th of May
Moving on from pizza to another great love of mine called wine. This Sunday is dedicated to celebrating the bottling of the new wines of Chateau Amsterdam and uncorking the very first bottles of the vintage ‘18. A ticket to this great feast includes a tasting of all their new wines, that are actually made in Amsterdam! And in order not to balance out “liquid love”, there will be matching sorts of cheese available from “Kef”, which rumour told me is just delicious, and authentic sausages from “Brandt & Levie” to go together with the many different kinds of wine. Santé!
Warehouse Sale – NDSM, 25th and 26th of May
Call me optimistic, but in my humble opinion, with the great weather that we’ve got to enjoy lately, it is time to switch your wardrobe up, store all your woollen items and replace them with some more summer proof options. 😉 Zipper, one of the most well-known vintage shops in town, is hosting the perfect (and sustainable) event this weekend to do just that. The very first special warehouse event will take place, this weekend they will host the first special warehouse event of the year with vintage items that they’ve hunted down last month, all the way in the city of angels, LA. My treasure hunting self is definitely peaked.
It might be obvious state, but It’d be an understatement to stay that I’m stoked to see what this weekend will bring! Have a good one and make the most out of it!
