Betty Boop

Postby Beelzebozo » Sun Apr 05, 11:17 pm

Is Betty Boop still open? If so, do they still make hash milkshakes? My friend's band is touring over there, and they really love milkshakes. Do any other coffee shops make "special" milkshakes? I tried one at Betty Boop a long time ago and it was awesome.

According to FBN they're open until Jan. 1 of next year.

Beelzebozo Betty Boops is long gone, but there's a Betty's Two open and you can find their address and menu at FBN's site.

Nothing on their weed or hash menus about milkshakes, but perhaps give them a call and inquire.

Betty Boop was a great shop. I don't ever remember them making a hash milkshake though.

Abraxas on the other hand had some killer milkshakes....the peach mango comes to mind...

The last time i was in Amsterdam I resorted to buying febo milkshakes and adding my own hash back at the hotel.

De Kuil was never the same after it stopped serving alcohol! It's still a shame if it has gone though! It was one of the few shops I visited on every single trip!

De Kuil bought out Dutch Flowers so they will still have a shop when 420 closes in January.

Thanks for the info, guys! I'm pretty sure the hash milkshake was never on the menu at Betty Boop. They just sold regular milkshakes. You had to supply the hash, but they would blend it in the shake for you. The Febo shake might have to suffice, that would definitely be the easiest DIY option.

Bummer about De Kuil/420 Cafe! I always liked that place. Remember the American ex-pat bud-tender there named Patrick? He was a cool dude.

My friend's band is playing the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg this week. They'll only have a few hours to hang out in Amsterdam after flying in Wednesday morning. What are the best coffee shops closest to Central Station that they should check out? 420 Cafe? Central on Prins Hendrikkade? They've never been to the Dam and they only have a few hours to kill, so I don't want to confuse them with hard-to-find shops. Any other coffee shops besides those two, that are close to Central Station, that you guys would recommend? I haven't been over there since 2008, and I know a lot has changed, so I appreciate your avice. Thanks!

Sounds like De Kuil has gone, and Central is a buy and fly only these days!

Print them off a coffeeshop map and send them down Haarlemmerstraat ...

Most of the coffeeshops there serve breakfast with your spliff!

Phases of the project to make Amsterdam the dullest capital city in Europe? Expect real results before the end of the decade kids.

they've been at it for a few years now. I'm not sure if it's still the case but at one point there was an actual effort to change the name, red light district, to, red carpet area.

If I had a couple of hours and wanted to keep it simple , I'd stick a right in , coming out of Central Station and walk the 5 or 6 minutes to Haarlemmerstraat. Better Amsty vibe imo , than what's on offer the other way and it's all there .

Haha. The fucking arrogance and hubris of these cunts.

Still, on the plus side there's no way Amsterdam hoteliers are going to be able to maintain these insane room prices when the competition from places like Germany, Spain and Portugal really kick in. They're going to have to accept a lower standard of living along with their new, shiny, squeaky-clean image.

And at their prices, they're competing with far-east destinations. You've got to think "Would I rather blow a couple of grand on a week in Amsterdam or two weeks in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Ko Pha Ngan*?"


*Or nearest equivalent

They must be feeling the pinch already!

The recent ruling that bans the renting of apartments for less than a week was as a result of the hoteliers whinging like bitches to the Council that private owners were doing them out of business!

There are some good shops along that stretch. Dampkring and Greenhouse both have shops there now, plus Popeyes and Barneys. They ought to be able to find decent gear in one of those shops.

The list are shops that are scheduled to close? Is my understanding correct?

That is correct Dogbreath, but it's apparent that some are closing beforehand.

from my understanding - No One makes hash milkshakes anymore - they have been banned for a couple of years.

Buy the hash - ground it up and stir it in... it's a DYI

Sounds like a waste of money to me! You'd have to ingest a large amount of hash to have any noticeable effect!

It's anti-AirBnB legislation. Instead of becoming cheaper and more flexible and offering a decent service that people want, they run to the government to protect their business model just like the BPI, the RIAA and the banks. The Dutch never used to be like this: blocking the path of technology and progress. They always used to embrace it. Something is wrong with the Netherlands.

Coincidentally, planning legislation like this that was widely ignored in London has just been struck down.

Doesn't take that much good hash to do the trick, perhaps somewhere between half a gram and a full one. The fat in the ice cream will deliver the hash much quicker to your bloodstream, than eating hash alone. You can substitute the milkshake with a small container of full fat yogurt.

I've never tried it in a shake or hot chocolate! I'm basing my opinion on the hash cookies I've tried, which didn't do a thing, and an unfortunate incident where a 'teenth of 'Paki Black' I'd tied in a condom and swallowed suffered a major malfunction on the flight over to Turkey!
