    [MEETUP] FHC end-of-year boozefest in Dutchlands

    Final update!


    Date: Saturday 12th of January, 2013
    Location: Leiden, the Netherlands. We'll meet at a bar close to the station, specializing in awesome beers and whisk(e)ys. http://www.biercafe.nl
    Organizing committee: so far, me
    Dinner: steak (or another option) at Entrekoos, starting around 17:30 http://www.entrekoos.nl. We're meeting here at 17:30. If you plan to attend PM me, so I can make a reservation.
    Station to Entrekoos: http://goo.gl/maps/Oob50
    After some judicious eating, we'll make our way to Lemmy's around 19:15ish.
    Entrekoos to Lemmy's: http://goo.gl/maps/faz08

    Attendees (confirmed):
    indi
    Overspark
    thebomby
    Pacefalm
    Mi Lai
    Roam
    Devec

    Attendees (unsure):
    Larkonis Trassler + gf
    Sirrush
    Mangala Solaris
    Rans
    Jalif

    Almost certainly not:
    XenosisReaper

    Canceled:
    Grarr Dexx

    =======
    Hotels
    There's a bunch of hotels in Leiden. I used http://www.booking.com/ (looked at location and non-extortionate pricing) to come to the following possibilities (price as of moment I checked – for saturday the 12th, breakfast usually not included):

    There's an Ibis hotel close to the station. Locationwise it's great in the sense that it's close to town centre, but there will be lots of noise from the trains and the view is less than spectacular. Pricing is good, however! 3*, 59 euros (1), 60 euros (2)
    Hotel Mayflower (family hotel) is close to the city center. It too will be noisy thanks to students and other people who have nothing better to do than boozing it up, but the atmosphere will be lively. 2*, 59 euros (1, non refundable), 79 euros (2, non refundable)
    Hotel Nieuw Minerva is (afaik) also a family hotel. Location great, probably a bit quieter than the first two options. 3*, 68 euros (1), 69 euros (2)
    Hotel Marienpoel is a hotel in a quirky old building. It's slightly further away, although probably still within walking distance. 4*, 99 euros (1), 80 euros (2, non refundable, including breakfast)

    Don't worry about breakfast, you're smack in the middle of town in all cases but Marienpoel and will be able to grab a much cheaper and possibly lots better sandwich within 2 minutes of exiting the hotel.

    B&B
    There's also the option of going for a B&B. I used http://www.airbnb.com/ for my list. I haven't used the website myself yet, but my brother in law has and was very happy with the results. Prices per night, checked for Saturday the 12th.

    Single person studio at an awesome location: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/471076. 62 euros a night including breakfast. 52 euros if you want to go hungry
    Also at a nice location, either a room (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/520684) at 50 euros for 1 or 65 euros for 2 people or the entire apartment (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/522037) at 80 euros for 1 or 95 euros for 2 people.
    Another awesome apartment here https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/155074. Price 125 euros whether you're with 1 or 2. (There's a futon in the living room, can go up to 4 occupants).
    Lovely apartment here https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/538704. Price 60 euros for 1 or 72 euros for 2 people.

    Note: the cancellation policies differ per person. There might or might not be breakfast included and there's usually a (small) fee for cleaning. Some people may have bikes you can rent, etc. There might also be a kitchen you can use, you just need to read the advertisement well. If you stay more than 1 night this might be a cheaper and more authentic experience.

    None of these lists are exhaustive. If you want to stay elsewhere and want some advice as to the location, just reply to this thread or leave me a PM.

    Food
    I will most probably grab a bite in town before we get our drinks (otherwise i"ll find myself cooking for half FHC, I bet). There's a lot of restaurants in the vicinity of the bar, ranging from sushi to steak. Goes from dirt cheap to medium expensive. If there's interest, I'll try to organize a food thing before the drink thing.
    =======
    Sooo.. I was thinking (inb4 the joke): could be fun to meet up in the Dutchlands just before new year's eve - or if that suits people better, just after - to either drink to the end of the world (ahmagad 2012) or the survival of the world in what should be good company.

    Location: I'd suggest we meet up in either Leiden (easiest for me to organize), Amsterdam or perhaps Rotterdam. Not at home in either of the other two cities, so someone else will have to pick the location, etc.

    Dates: either Saturday the 29th/Sunday the 30th of December *or* in Saturday the 5th of January.

    Present: obviously me and mr Overspark. Other dutchies?*



    *If you want to swing by from elsewhere and you are not a weirdie, there might be couches. Case by case basis, no arguments possible

    Fallacy of many questions!

    Also, beers are not made to be balanced. They should be consumed. Unless they are bad beers, in which case they should be ignored.

    I have a gaming buddy in Leiden, who has just had a kid, so could pop over as an excuse to see the kid and get drunk.

    But depends on what the gf has planned for around NYE tbh.

    Sounds good. If he doesn't have a couch, maybe you'll pass our non-weirdie check and you (and the mrs) could crash at ours'.

    I'd be up for this, but preferably after nye. I've already got plans with close friends and my girlfriend to celebrate new years together.

    Also, Amsterdam is clearly the better location for any boozefest.

    I"m ok with doing it after NYE as well. I don't mind traveling to Amsterdam or Rotterdam, my idea would be to let it depend on who attends, etc

    (If all else fails, clearly we can have a drink together )

    I see competition to the Innsbruck meet. If I wasn't already going South, I would have contemplated the trip North. Oh well, next year.
    On that same note, how about we have a bigger meet up in the Summer somewhere in Europe? The earlier we plan, the easier we can make sure the most number of people can show up.
    nevar forget

    Sorry Joe - if I had had some vacation days left, I might have gone to the Innsbruck meet!

    I'm all for it. I have some unavoidable commitments (wedding in Hungary in July), but I'd try to make it. If it's in the Dutchlands I'm willing to be on the organizing committee. Anywhere else, I'll just be on the consuming committee.

    This thread reminded me that I live in the Dutchlands
    I am up for anywhere tbh, but some m8s have already planned a boozenight which might coincide (stupidly we decided the plans during another boozenight and I forgot the date). Will have to check in when it actually was, if it doesnt overlap then I can do both of course

    I'll see where we're at tomorrow evening and then do some more substantial suggestions.

    Pacefalm/Mangala: let me know what would be convenient for you guys?
