Yo ‘Dam peeps! Almost time! I’ve just booked tomorrow off work as I’m tired and haven’t even packed yet but our flight is tomorrow evening.

If someone could help me find something gluten free to eat around the venue, I’d be soooo grateful btw! I mean, I’m vegan but tbh when traveling I can’t afford to be picky so will eat anything so long as it’s gluten free and not salmon. I just, no. Bleurgh. But despite my work having a Dutch office in Rotterdam who I know fairly well, I speak zero Dutch and get really anxious about asking in restaurants. It’s a curse.

I would love to meet up with everyone possible but am trying to give up whatsapp, so if any details could be pm’ed or posted in here I would be so appreciative! :love2:
I checked d'Overkant's website and they state that they have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, so definitely don't hesitate to ask about it. Or ask one of us Dutchies, we're all bilingual here and happy to help. :thumb: Most staff anywhere in Amsterdam speaks English, so don't be anxious :love2:



As far as contact and recognizability goes, best hit me up on Twitter if y'all have that and I'll keep checking the thread and PMs on here as well. I'd like to avoid swapping numbers if I can. And I'll be the woman in a long pink princessy skirt, I should be able to get recognized quite easily.

I am going to the matinee and would really to meet up with people before hand. (I'm 21 and I'm getting really anxious about going alone, also it would be nice to be excited with some other people :platonic: )

So if someone can tell me what plan for lunch I could join and add me in a groupchat if that's a thing I would really love that.

Hi! I was planning on going out for lunch around 13:00
The girl i was going with cancelled, so i’m also alone now :p
I’m in contact with one other girl, so i’ll ask her if she wants to join.
I would love to go together and if possible with more people. I read some people are going to do some sightseeing and i would love to join, but everyone who wants to do that should join our skype group :p that really is the easiest way to get a group together.
Anyway, i would love to get lunch! Anyone else? :)
I'm going to the matinee show alone so I'd love to go get lunch with you! I don't have skype, but I can just keep following this thread.
I'm going alone to the matinee as well and would love to join you guys for lunch if possible :) I'm also nervous and meeting people beforehand would be great! Though it would be either way but I'm stressing myself out a bit lol
I'll look in the thread for the skype thing
Awesome! Maybe the three of us (or more if people want to join :)) could meet up at ‘cafe de jaren’. That is a great lunch spot in the centre of Amsterdam. And then after some sightseeing (probably inside :p) go to the RAI area.
I can be in Amsterdam central anytime saturday, probably around 12:30 / 13:00
What time will you two be there?

One more question:
How will we know who to look for at d’overkant at 17:30? :p
Meet up in front of the restaurant or something? :p

tbh I might actually make a reservation since we got quite a big group of people coming for 17:30. d'Overkant is fine with groups but I'm sure they'd like a heads up. I'm counting 8 people? I'll make a list, please confirm if you're coming or not and let me know if I'm forgetting anyone or you're bringing someone. I can make a reservation tomorrow afternoon.

@Sterrex Meeting up in front is probably the best idea, but it might depend on the weather. Anyone who wants to DIY an IDB sign with stickers and craft glitter?

Where you also going to the matinee show? Bcz that one starts at 14:00, so your plan would not be logistically possible.

I was planning on tagging along with other matinee people which meet at d'overkant

So to summarize for matinee people: meetingplace D'overkant from 12.00 onwards for lunch? I'm making a whatsappgroup for anyone who's interested, so just PM me your number and you'll be added. How are you people going to find each other without it? Are you all like bringing a single red rose or something? :D

That’s a great idea!
Hahahaha maybe just tell us on what name you’ll make the reservation. Everyone will go inside and say they are there for that table, that might be a good idea?
Or we could all wear a rose or something super cliche like that 😂

And yeah that sounds like a smart plan Sterrex.

In London we had a little IDB sign on the table that someone wrote on a receipt, was so funny! You definitely need to book the table with a funny name like Human said! Tabitha Pancakes gets my vote!

Someone mentioned wearing a rose to be obvious but this is phan, it’s all about the cat whiskers right? 😂😂

Looking forwards to meeting everyone, there’s gonna be a good group of us it seems! ❤️

Sign me up for dinner too! (I'm assuming matinee people are welcome at dinner as long as we don't talk about the show, which I'm fine with!)

Also, again for both lunch and dinner: I'm really not comfortable with sharing my phone number so I'll be keeping an eye on IDB instead

Just made reservations for 14 people! Messiest call ever, it seems like they got a busy day tomorrow with two more groups (it's a popular place for groups who go to the nearby bowling alley) and I was just in time. We do gotta be out of there by 19:30, but at least for us evening show peeple that won't be a problem. :thumb:

Because the call was a mess I kinda forgot about Tabitha Pancakes, but you can just ask for Sarah when you come in instead and they'll get what you mean (if the lady on the phone wrote it down correctly anyway lol).

@emmaP It seems like it's best to keep things on IDB, I'll check back here as much as I can tomorrow and if you want a quick answer you can PM me on here too (I'll get an email notification) or on Twitter for those that have that.

Final list for 17:30 at d'Overkant:

Catallena
missemma
human
LttrlySusan
SquishPhan
Sterrex
Meikerd (you didn't confirm yet, but I'm just gonna assume lol)
coffeepenguin
Flomy
Larissa1242
citizen_erased
emmaP
aralik (like i suggested on twitter, you can always opt out tomorrow. )
rainliketheweather (contacted via PM)

I look forward to meeting you all! <3

Make sure to contact me if you're not sure how to get there from the station or something, I'll try to arrive at the station at around 5 so maybe we can figure something out and walk together.

(btw free food tip from my dad: If you want dessert, try ice salon Pisa IJs directly across the road from d'Overkant, on front of The Corner and Visaandeschelde. There might be a long line, but he says it's some of the best ice cream in the city.)
