Re: Closed coffeeshops in Dam?

I think most of the closures had happened or were in progress 3 years ago (though I'm terrible with time). The shops around the centruum with limited hours due to being close to a school are now back on full hours. De Graal is probably the most obvious one to have shut relatively recently, and of co...

Ahhhh, Grey Area with no queue / patrons packed in like sardines? I call shenanigans even without the self-promotion :mrgreen:

Re: The Plug (formerly Utopia)

This, I agree they are trying to do. As I said before, the old ceiling of 18/g for GSC in Barneys has been raised considerably with the Cali introduction. I'm just amazed at the amount of outraged people who have never actually tried the stuff. Woot, we have common ground! :D I remember a few years...

Re: The Plug (formerly Utopia)

Lol, yeah ok, and that argument is, and always has been, a one-way trip to being ripped off in Amsterdam. How do you know the Greenhouse's xxx isn't worth €5 more than everywhere else until you've tried it, etc? The issue isn't whether it's nice or not, I'm sure it is or they really would have some ...

Re: The Plug (formerly Utopia)

"Dedicated to providing high quality products... if you don't mind paying an absolutely absurd amount for "cali weed", otherwise you're shit out of luck 'cause all those other tubs are empty." So disappointed what's happened here. Utopia had slipped a touch in my personal coffeeshop hierarchy in the...

Re: Old Amsterdam

Yeah that seems to have replaced Old Amsterdam @ no 35. Not sure I've ever seen that bit next door looking open.

Oh really? That's unfortunate, didn't pop in there last trip but previously I'd only ever had pretty good experiences there :(

Re: Decent Coffeeshops near Cuyp Market?(De Pijp)

I'm interested in a nice haze or other cerebral/active/chatty strain that'll be good for a long weekend of exploring AMS with my wife. Anyone tried their Dr Grinspoon recently? If any other coffee shops in the area have had any decent sativa strains going on I'd love to know! Club Media normally ha...

Re: Decent Coffeeshops near Cuyp Market?(De Pijp)

Club Media & Katsu probably have the most consistent product, they're usually my first ports of call in the area since De Graal closed. Ibiza isn't that bad (if the music isn't hideous) as it is pretty spacious and comfy, but avoid the higher priced strains as they're unlikely to be what they're lab...

Re: Truffles are amazing

Well there's the time back when mushies were still legal when we had some very strong ones (Hawaiian possibly), one mate and I had a great time but our other friend lost his mind. When I say lost his mind I don't mean he went crazy, just that he forgot everything he'd ever known. For hours on end hi...

Re: HET BALLONNETJE AND THE PASSAGE OF TIME.

Afaik Rusland has been up for sale, on possibly more than one occasion, in relatively recent times, so at a complete guess I'd doubt there still is any association.

Re: How weird is that for a woman to seat alone in a coffeeShop?

Not weird at all. Maybe in a few of the more youth-clubby shops you might feel a bit odd on your own but in the majority of more chilled out places you see plenty of solo patrons. In my experience you strike up a lot more conversations with staff and random strangers if on your own in a coffeeshop. ...

Re: Pre-420 Trip report

Nice report man. Loving the style. I actually enjoyed the AC from Utopia on my visit. But then again I've not had much else in the way of Hash b4. Cheers dude, I'll get the rest finished tomorrow. Oh I've always loved the AC before and it has been consistently good for quite a while, but the intel ...

Re: Coffeeshops you can lounge in?

Ibiza has several large sofas, just depends if it's a bad music day whether you'd want to lounge there too long (and the product is variable)

Mr K's has a sofa and several improvised lounging spots in their smoke room. Funky Munky also has some decent sofa spots.
