Drinks! On Thursday!

Held by Amsterdam LesBian social club on 29 August 2019 8:00 PM

Hi All,

Join us for Drinks on Thursday in 2019!

Once a month, we will meet at Cafe Hermes on Thursday evening. In addition to their bar, the owner Bea also offers pool, fabulous decor, an outdoor area (more important in good weather), Dutch language lessons, sjoel lessons, bar cat Max and a hearty welcome. We want to offer you a chance to meet every month in a space that is welcoming, open and prepared for the group. Hence the movement to LGBT friendly cafes.

Since it is a Thursday night, we'll start at 8PM instead of 9. It's around the corner from the Albert Cuyp market and all of the great restaurants in the area. Trams 3 and 12 stop on the block. It's also right near the new North South Metro line stop De Pijp.

Book Club (#3): Less

Held by Gay & LesBian Social The Netherlands on 11 September 2019 7:30 PM

For our third edition of the Book Club we chose to read and exchange ideas about the funny and charming: Less by Andrew Sean Greer, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes--it would be too awkward--and you can't say no--it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world.

What would possibly go wrong? Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: he will turn fifty. Through it all, there is his first love. ...

Desperate to start the weekend early? Want a casual way to meet new and old faces? We hear you.

Join us for after-work (or after-school, or after-whatever) merriment. This time we'll be at (bar to be announced - read below to help us find a place) and we'll try a different bar every month.

So easiest thing ever, with no elaborate plans, activities or schedules - Just come over, have some drinks, and a laid back chat with people.

See you soon!

- Definitely don't open a tab for the group, pay for all drinks and food immediately 😉
- We're there to meet people, so be friendly, walk around, and mingle! Don't stay only with the people you came with (unless you're on a date, of course)!

Bike tour "Romeinse Limesroute" (Part 3 - Arnhem/Nijmegen - 55 km)

Held by Gay & LesBian Social Zuid Holland on 12 October 2019 11:00 AM

Hello Bikers,
the winter is over, so it's the perfect time to take our bikes and spend a day out, enjoying the Dutch nature and a bit of culture.

This tour is a part of a longer route (220 km) from Katwijk, on the North Sea coast, to the German border at Millingen (passing through Leiden, Woerden, Utrecht, Arnhem and Nijmegen), that follows the Dutch section of the Limes - the border of the Roman Empire - which ran along the old River Rhine. In 2nd century AD - when the empire was at its greatest - the Limes ran from the North Sea at Katwijk along the rivers Rhine and Danube all the way to the Black Sea.
Along the border Romans built twenty forts and a series of watch-towers (castella), interconnected by roads. Unfortunately, not many evidences remain, but we will see modern reconstructions and information boards (in Dutch).

Tour starts at Arnhem Centraal Station and ends at Nijmegen Centraal Station.
