    We won't be going with a lot of smokers. Are there any other alternatives? Are the cakes any good?

    Also I really like the idea of renting out some bikes and doing a bar crawl/ride to some of the best bars I could find online, but people have said that cycling in Amsterdam is a bit intense, and 10 drunk brits cycling around the streets potentially like morons might piss a few people off

    It's only intense in the sense that there are loads of people cycling...Otherwise I believe the people there have developed the ability to deftly evade drunk cyclists...

    Hire a boat and get shit faced in the canals.

    Is that fun? I'm not sure chilling in a boat for 2 hours is that exciting.

    the sex museum is sort of fun. there's a lot of cocks in it already :) i think you have to do the smoking thing. i'm not a smoker either but it feels right over there.

    I've lived in The Netherlands for the past 18 years and I wouldn't fancy cycling around Amsterdam while drunk :D

    Ok that's definitely a no go the bikes then. I'll put the see museum in the list as it's only 4 euros. And try find a nice chilled out. Coffees hope for us the recoup on the 2nd day. Any other ideas?

    If you hear the tram bells, just grab and hold onto the nearest lamppost to ensure survival.

    I've booked the hotel not hotel which is slightly out of town. What is the easiest way to get around at night? During the day there are plenty of trams, but coming back from a club could be more tricky.

    Lol that's good then. The last thing I wanted was loads of people moaning about how far out we were. Also thinking of heading. Bietfabriek for food and table beer taps. The reviews seem pretty good!

    It's Dutch slang.

    Boat = small child.
    Canals = Anal.

    Go to Brouwerij - really cool brewery in a windmill. They occasionally do tours, but it's a great place to go just for some great beer.

    Yeah will definitely try go there rather than the Heineken one but they aren't offering tours yet. Maybe just rock up on the day

    Whatever else you do, eat some Indonesian food. Get a rijsttafel. Google image search it. Best food ever.

    Yeah, best Indonesian food outside Indonesia. Gotta love a Beef Rendang - great stoner food.

    Another must do for Stag-do food is an Argentinian Grill. Get the biggest possible and sweat sausages and chops like you're gonna die.

    @cjb_bjc If you want to sample some herbal products I highly recommend de dampkring it's in the completely opposite direction to the red light district but probably had the best weed. If you are tempted to try any I suggest New York city diesel if they have it and assuming it's still there. I'll have a look for you later on.

    Re eating it, it's a lot stronger than smoking it. I would suggest maybe using a vapouriser they had volcano ones last time I went it's cone shaped and has a bag on top with a mouthpiece
    you fill it up with vapour and you can pass it around your mates. That is assuming you want some weed.

    Re cycling sod that it goes pavement cycle path tramline Road as far as I can remember.

    Vondels Park is pretty good.

    Love Indonesian food but not sure how many others will be up for that too. I'll research a good place and add it to the list.

    As for the coffee shop. None of us are major smokers so rather than going for some insane strain I think we'll stick with something mellow. Interesting to hear about the cake. Will consume with care!

    Any good recommendations on clubs that will let 10blokes in?
  • Deleted user 1 April 2015 23:04:33
    Tulip museum or lying under a glass coffee table whilst prostitutes shit on it.

    There's no middle ground

    Air is on my list, I'll move it to the top now. I've just found a graffiti workshop which will cater for us. Its about the same cost as the beer bike! 35 each but probably more interesting???

    Has anyone been boom Chicago for the comedy? If so is it worthwhile paying more for better seats?

    So just arrived back with all 10 in tow. What a lovely crazy crazy place it is! Great fun with so much to see and do! If you've never been it would be equally nice as a couple or a lads/ladettes weekend away. Obviously you'd do slightly different things though!!
