    Amsterdam: Things to do

    Go to The Grey Area and get The Bubblegum and then go for a walk
    Go to The Van Gogh Museum
    Rent a bike
    Get White Widow and sit on a bench
    Get Amnesia Haze and get yourself lost (daytime preferably)
    If you are going to stay at a Hostel stay at The Flying Pig Downtown and soak in their music collection
    Drink a Palm Bier
    Drink another Palm Bier
    Try not to plan your trip to Amsterdam and just let things happen.

    There was a 3 hour line to get in. No thanks. The Grey Area is right around the corner from Anne Franks house though.

    That's assuming you just go there to get loaded. This thread talks about the culture AND getting loaded.

    Interesting. We got there about 10 minutes before the doors opened and were 4th in line so there was zero wait. This was in late June. Someone tried to tell us we would have a couple hour wait if we didn't get there a couple hours early. Glad we ignored them.

    I've told you this before, but if you have time or can convince your crew to get out of Amsterdam, take the train out to Utrecht (20-30 minute ride). The night life there is much better and you can actually meet Dutch women who are down to party, not just tourists.

    Also, in Amsterdam, Club Paradiso is a ton of fun. It used to be a Church, but now it's a 3 story club and it's great to party in. Depends on who is booked there though (It looks like Dionne Warwick is playing there that weekend...hehe)

    My biggest advice is wander as far away from the train station as possible if you want to get a real feel for the city. Naturally there are strip clubs and bars and coffee shops right away but these are all shitty and touristy and there are strip clubs and bars and clubs and coffee shops that are much better if you walk a bit further.

    Indonesian food, Van Gogh Museum, Rijkmuseum, canal ride, picture taking, and a couple coffee shops are on my list. MJA, I arrive Friday and leave Sunday. Let me know if you want to meet up for any of those - it would be lovely to hang out with someone for a bit since I'll basically be there alone!

    The best thing about the Anne Frank House is the little basement cafe next door. Seriously. The food is amazing. In my three trips to Amsterdam, I've eaten there about ten times.

    For MJA/others going to Amsterdam:

    *rent a bike
    *go to Barney's for breakfast and fine hash
    *Avoid the super-touristy shit between the train station and Dam plaza. Similarly, avoid most of the places on Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal.
    *see the Sex Museum, it's really fun and surprisingly interesting.
    *Do touristy stuff like Van Gogh museum and the Anne Frank House, etc early in the morning when lines are relatively short.
    *Eat. Amsterdam has a huge immigrant population and they seem to all have ridiculously delicious food.

    My favorite coffee shops:
    Barney's
    The Noon
    Amnesia
    The Grey Area
    Abraxas, if you're into edibles and hash cappuccinos/coffee/milkshakes/smoothies
    The Grasshopper in the Red Light

    Barney's breakfast cafe: Great food and weed.

    *edit* greg beat me to it.

    Id also recommend looking up the cannibus cup winners, and goto those coffee shops for that specific weed.

    It's a very distinct, fishy, fishy taste and it's pretty slimy, but I loved it. Especially on bread with onions (Broodje Haring met Ui). Most people hate it.

    I liked bitterballen as a drunk snack at bars there. But be warned, it's just deep fried horse meat. And you dip it in mustard.

    lol oh the cheese, this place was closed when we went by it.



    We stayed near the museumplein area. Right across the street from the Van Gogh and on the other side of town from the Red Light District. It was a nicer neighborhood.

    Also by the touristy Amsterdam sign.




    I didn't know what weed to buy or whatever so I stuck to a pack of pre - rolled thai I got at the Bulldog which is actually a chain. I wish I would have went for more of a variety because this was pretty intense and made me a paranoid mute the first time I smoked it.
