Amsterdam !
« on: February 17, 2012, 04:48:22 PM »
So Im going for a quick weekend in Amsterdam , I got a friend I can stay with in Utrech so we will be in Amsterdam from early
morning to late night , then just take the train back .

Now I am gonna do the cliche and smoke weed and take shrooms ( shrooms are legal right )  but other then that I really wanted to check out museums and art galleries and stuff

Any good cool art / painting / photography  museums / galleries ? 

what ells should we do in amsterdam besides walk around alot and check bridges rivers and architechure ?

Shrooms are illegal now.  I went to some cheesy museums by the red light district that sucked, but the people I was with wanted to go.  Amsterdam is pretty small...just walk around let things happen.  Leidseplein is a good place for drinking outdoors with lots of people.  I'm assuming you're American.  They are going to look at you weird when you roll a joint without putting tobacco in it.  The weed isn't any stronger than good ass medical marijuana tho...so either laugh it off or throw some tobacco in it.  I have nothing to recommend in the food department.  I ate like shit in the Netherlands.  I made a little edit from that trip.  :D

rijks museum has some world famous art, there's a big mini on the square in front called museumplein, but dont know if youre gonna skate.
Shrooms are illigal now, and wouldnt recommend doing them if its your first time in amsterdam, had some friends from other counties most of them ended up having a bad trip.

Just have a few smokes and beers and shred the indoor park or streets.

In Utrecht, make sure to go to Cafe Belgie. Really hearty food and a great selection of beers. I definitely prefer Utrecht over Amsterdam too, but that's probably because I was in Utrecht for so much longer. If you go to Amsterdam with a local, I'm sure there's great stuff there. Den Haag has the M.C. Escher museum which is awesome.

The first time I went to Amsterdam I walked right by that place and I was amazed. I could not find it again. Bummer.

Unfortunately yes it is. A lot of the better spots are suburban where its a different city. There is a central skate shop called Ben-G's, Benny that runs it is 100%, he will be your best bet.

there is a Bring Your Own Beer Session every Wednesday at Olympiaplein. good flatground, a shitty skatepark and a few cool obstacles. really good vibe and most of the time they have a video screen when it gets dark. you should go there
