April 2020 trip

Postby bigbird » Fri Jan 31, 3:03 am

Hi everyone long time no post. I will be in Amsterdam from April22-29th. I have heard a few people will be in town during that time and I would like to meet up with some of you. I know it has been a long time but I was wondering if FlyByNite still is active in the forum? I used to love the meet up posts that he used to make back in the day. Goodbye for now and I am looking forward to April.

I am still around, posting menus and people.

I check the forum daily or more looking for people to post. Now I found one.

Why can't they cross in america? Seems like a cheaper flight, at least.

and what's really cool, is as long as y'all aren't in the same town it can still be a trip report.

Good to have you back bigbird. We will be there, the Asoka crew of course, and some other folks... planning for a get together as it is Channels 25th Anniversary. I will keep you posted!

On a somewhat related note, I believe Slither and MHD are planning to Jello Wrestle to settle their difference, so we have that to look forward to also... :)

You’re wasting your time, little man.
No soirée for you.

However: I will be in town for a few days in early March. Can’t do April.

I’ll leave a gift for Bret at Katsu.



Cheers.

What a shocker "Mr. I own 3 Houses around the Globe including in Amsterdam"... I'll still keep you posted on the get together, just in case you fly in on your private jet and can surprise everyone... we'll leave the lights on for you...

Hey FBN how about posting a meet up? I plan on being at Rookies at 18:00 on 25 April 2020 to get ready for the Pokey LaFarge concert at the Paradiso that night. The doors open for the concert at 19:00 with the concert due to start at 20:30. I have not been to a Paradiso concert yet and anyone who is interested is welcome to attend.

Bummer Banks.
Because of the danger in traveling?

Or afraid of getting stuck over there?

We have a friend currently stuck in Northern Italy.
Fortunately, she is in a beautiful countryside Villa,
so pretty much an extended, slightly nervous vacation.
Good luck and good health to you sir.

We cashed in some FF miles for both flights, and I made refundable hotel reservations so after a lot of discussion, I decided to pull the plug on the trip... so it's not costing much to cancel... I wasn't overly concerned about danger of getting the virus while traveling, more so about getting stuck over there, but I figured that the Keukenhof will close, the museums will close, and Kingsday would be canceled... thanks for the good wishes Rudy... may our paths cross one of these daze... :)

You made that decision for yourself, Banks.
No need to be bitter about it.

I'm not bitter at all, it wasn't really my choice to go to Amsterdam. However, you are still an ass talker...

No. Not bitter it all.
The struggle is real, old boy.

You sound like modern roots.

Thank you. I hope our paths cross im Amsterdam.

Well I also cancelled. I held up for some time but I finally gave up. The concert I was looking forward to "Pokey LaFarge" at the Patadiso has been rescheduled for April 17th 2021. Maybe all of this madness will have died down by then.
