ASSEN is super close to where I live! When you are here, we will have adventures.

16th it is! Woo! (Robynn, are you the same Robynn who was my swap buddy a few years ago?)

Also, I have a proposition for one of you - if someone could help me the first time in the grocery store as I do not speak a lick of Dutch and don't know the brands, I will bring them whatever they want in North American products that are likely hard/impossible to find there or very expensive. Any takers?


When do you arrive or what day are you going to shop?


I arrive the evening of March 4 so probably shopping on March 5? My course begins in Rijswijk the morning of the 6th.

I'm going to be in Belgium the week you arrive, Robynn, otherwise I'd love to help you shop. If my schedule changes, though, I'll let you know.

So are we on for the 16th? If so, I'll put in my vacation request!

Yes, I can be there the 16th. David (my partner) will probably come along too, since he really enjoyed hanging out with you guys last time.

Robynn, I can't come to Den Haag to help you shop, but if you want I can make a little document with the Dutch names of some products you might want to get and where they can be found in the store (and maybe also some words for common offenders like milk and egg, to help you check ingredients). Do you know what 'brands' of supermarket you will have in the vicinity? Probably at least an AH/Albert Heijn.

I think the place with the fondue is De Hagedis. Bun, veg_eric, pickledtreats also went to lunch that day, I don't know what the place was called. But I couldn't make it to Den Haag that early (catmergency) and they brought me something tasty!


Oh sweet jeebus, that fondue.

I'd be up for a meet up! Den Haag also has a vegetarian Asian market. I haven't read through the whole thread, but that place is fun. Just check the labels. Not everything is vegan.

Just saw the date - March 16th looks clear for me.

Also, I don't know if you guys are up for this, but if Robynn can't find a shopping partner for the 5th, maybe we can make her a little visual guide of things we look for at the shops? We could put it together in some shareable, web format. Robynn, will you have a smart phone over here? Just an idea. And it might be nice for other new visitors to The Netherlands!

Hooray, March 16th!

I'd be up for contributing to a visual vegan "100% plantaardig" shopping guide.

What format/platform should we use to work on the guide? Google docs?

We could also start a Flickr group? Or maybe even post here?

My vote's for a weekend and not March 10th. (Where are you going, bunbunbun?)

YES De Hagedis.

Berlin!

16 March doesn't really work for me because it's the Saturday before my birthday, which means party time chez Bun...

It would be cool to make something with a tagging feature that people can browse through easily. Google docs is easy, but not so mobile friendly. And big docs can get unwieldy. I was thinking a simple blog with tags or an Evernote (though that might limit the options for people since they need the app). Flickr could work, too!

The 16th is fine with me.

I think it could be wise to make a reservation at De Hagedis once we know how many people will come to the meetup?

I'll see if I can get half a day off at work, perhaps that I can show you around a bit in the afternoon.

Going to Rijswijk with public transport?
(for train you can buy paper tickets, but bus/tram needs a chipcard)

Sounds like it's Robynn, V_E, pickledtreats, Bun (& Mr. Bun?), lepelaar, cornelie (& Mr. Cornelie), and lutin.
Sounded like fisticuffs and marla666 are maybe's? Should we ping Amsterdamaged, Mr. & missmuffcake & gnoe on facebook to find out if they're in?

I'm still technically a maybe until my vacation request gets the stamp of approval. Should know by this weekend.

The chances are very high. I doubt they won't approve my request, unless a billion other people are on vacation that day. Just being cautious.
