The Annual Four-Twenty Gathering - 20th April 2024

Post by Lemming »

Saturday 20th April 2024 is Four-Twenty Day!
So the place to be is in 420 Café at 4.20pm


Long overdue, as usual, this is the traditional 4/20 topic. Usually someone starts an early 4/20 thread before I get this one together but this year we have two! They're here: 420/2024 April 17th -April 22nd and Let's GO 420/2024.

Following tradition, the following section is a copy of last year's post with a new bit added to the end.

Why 4-20?

The origins of 4-20 are the stuff of legends and discussed elsewhere on this forum.
Suffice to say it's a time, 4:20, as in twenty past four, now firmly associated with marijuana, especially in America.
In American shorthand, the 20th of April (20/04/24 in Europe) is 04/20/24, so it's 4-20 Day!

(Wikipedia: 420, 4:20 or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) refers to consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.
The notable day is April 20.)

History of the 4-20 Gathering

2005
Soon after the ACD sprouted a forum in March 2005, Old Hippie Dave posted details of meets he'd arranged around 20th April 2005.
It seems that he and others on the Channels forum had been celebrating 420 day in Amsterdam for a few years.
After the event he posted this: Old Hippie Dave's video of 4/20 2005.

2006
In 2006 AzLaker helped to organise a band of ACDers to join the Channelites in de Kuil coffeeshop (420 cafe) on 20 April 2006.
The following day Old Hippie Dave held a "Vapo Party" in Amnesia.
Reports: Old Hippie Dave's video, OHD live report part 1 and part 2, Lafe live, Lemming, AzLaker part 1, part 2 and part 3, Zunkii, Bluelaru, BlueBerry.

2007
2007 was a big gathering with several forums represented. There's loads of pics in circulation of some of those epic sessions.
Travelogues: Lemming part 1, part 2, part 3, Twitch part 1, part 2, cattales1960, Mazdog, back2thedam (Haarlem crawl), Islandgurl part 1, part 2.

2008
Planning for the 2008 gathering was, at least as far as this forum was concerned, interrupted by it being off-air for months.
Fortunately Channels was still there and, especially, VDF stepped in and kept everyone in touch.
Travelogues: Lemming, Twitch, Bhang Buddie, SilentlyScreaming.

2009
By far our biggest gathering yet. We pretty much took over the 420 coffeeshop for half an hour or so.
Live reports were posted in Travelogues by AzLaker, Cattales1960, Couch, Fishinbob, Hestia, Lemming, WolfDangler and Worsall.
Followed by reports from Boner, Chilly1952, Couch, FenixNYC, Gapie, Hestia’s epic account days 1-8, days 9 & 10, day 11, day 12, day 13, day 14 (20th April) and day 15, Kermit, Lampshade, Lemming, LiquidSwords, PirateRaff, SoulRider and Twichaldinho.

2010
Some Icelandic volcano with an utterly unpronounceable name blew up and grounded all air traffic in Europe just before 4-20.
Nevertheless, a hard core of ACD members hit town in style.

Some members from the USA arrived just before the volcano went off and some determined people from the UK managed to get there by road, rail and ferry.
They were joined by Amsterdam resident members and, between them, they even managed to bring about the first ever ACD competition for best coffeeshop.

All of the members of the forum chose a shortlist of coffeeshops for our intrepid reporters to check out and give a rating to.
All of those members who made it then toured the shops and chose a winner.
We named our accolade the "Hestia" (well, if the American academy of movies can call theirs "Oscar" then why not?).
You can read all about it in the accounts below but I can tell you that Green Place won.

Travelogues: Hestia 420 Trip Hestia, Combined, 420 Trip Hestia First Installment, 420 Trip Hestia 2nd Installment, 420 Trip Hestia 3rd Installment and 420 Trip Hestia; Islandgurl 4/20 Begins... the Eruption.; Gapie Live in NES 420; Valo Day 1 - Monday 19th April 2010 and Day 2 - Tuesday 20th April 2010; Angry Pirate Obscurerd by clouds, a latecomers tale...; Treetop Treetop's 420 boat infested trip so far...; Lem's 4-20 Verdict; Cisco Ciscos Volcano Vacation; Ed the Head Ed the Head's 2010 Hajj.

2011
Of banners and boats, cups and cakes. Volcanoes went off all over Amsterdam but, fortunately, not in Iceland.
The Cup went to Basjoe and a good time was had by all. See these accounts:

2021

Scuppered by the Lurgy again! Another Zoom call.

2022

Finally we got back! Some of the best travelogues ever posted were written about this:

AzLaker: Day 1-3 of 420/2022, Day 4

2023

Not many travelogues from 2023. We must all have been too stoned to remember anything :D

There was the traditional live thread running while we were there. Then we wrote these on our return:

DocGonzo42s 4/20/2023 ...The whole 8 days
Ghost 420 2023 and Ghost 420 day 2 17/04/2023
and my account of the ACD Forum's 4/20 Gathering 2023

2024

We'll be there. Will you?
If so, please reply to this topic and post your dates here.

If you haven't joined us before then you can be added to this huge list of 420 Veterans.

See you there!

I was thinking of strolling along to the Bronx or Keteltje after The Spirit and then up to Chapitaeu and Freedom for a scan of their menu's for fly 'n' buy before heading back towards Republiek and Catch 33 and ending up at 137 or Relax :?: what do you think to that :?: It will all most probably go out the window after hitting the Spirit :lol: I don't mind tramming it down to 1eHulp etc or we could just do a selection of the shops around Funky Monkey the following day :?: like 1eHulp Mr K etc. This year I am keeping it more relaxed and not set to much in stone :thumbup:

@Ghost, more than happy to check out these coffeeshops. I don't think I've been to any of them before, and if I did, it was because I probably got lost my first couple of trips. :lol: :lol: I was checking out the ACD map for more info, I wonder if their in the vicinity of that pizza joint that nuggz took us and few others to a couple of years ago. Darn good pizza. Might have to see if it's close by. :D We'll figure it out, or not. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'm a bit busy with some changes to the ACD site generator at the moment but I'll get back onto this soon. I see we have at least one more person to add and some event suggestions emerging so an update is due. I'll start the countdown again soon too.

@dude65 - I'll add you to the list and hope you get to join us somewhere.

@kush0la - Should I add you to the list? Do you have dates?

Spirited crawl - sounds like a good plan. I've still got a wooden spoon from our last visit to Spirit. The story of that is in Travelogues somewhere. We awarded Catch 33 a 'Hestia' once and spent a pleasant afternoon there. That'll be in Travelogues somewhere too. I think the pizza place was De Pizzabakkers on Haarlemmerdijk, quite near Relax. Yet again, that'll be in Travelogues. The only other thing to note is that public transport is not very useful between those places so we're likely to be walking.

WhatsApp - I didn't know that this isn't widely used in America. Over here, the likes of Signal and Telegram are only used by conspiracy theorists, paedophiles and other paranoid types. This seems slightly ironic as these people obviously don't know the story of EncroChat or NSO's Pegasus, but that's a conversation for another day. Anyway, yes, we have a WhatsApp group that you're welcome to join if you're coming to Amsterdam with us. Just bung me your mobile number.

Base - Another perennial question is where we should make our default meeting place. Veterans will remember the long lost Nes café, which we've never really found a perfect replacement for. So, where should we meet on 17th? Batavia, Betty's (Bar 55), HSB, somewhere else?

Update soon. Meanwhile, please do keep the conversation going ...

@AzLaker :thumbup: After reading what I had put, I am now thinking that might be an overly ambitious crawl :lol: so I am thinking I might hit a couple of those shops before making my way to The Spirit T'n'T like Freedom and Chapiteau and quickly stopping into Keteltje and Bronx maybe :?: and then after we have finished our session in The Spirit take a stroll up to Catch 33 for a session or something maybe :? and then get a bit of food as I expect will be Hank Marvin by then. We can work it out :thumbup:

Yes maybe a over ambitious Spirited Crawl :lol: I may hit a couple of those shops before I head down to the T 'n' T and then head towards Catch 33 for another session :?: Yes that pizza place was De Pizzabakker and very good pizza it was :D I will have to hunt the wooden spoon story out

As I am not going to arrive until the 19th I will not give an opinion and leave it up to you good guys 'n' gals to find a suitable establishment to frequent as a base camp. It would be nice to maybe be able to have a conversation or at least attempt to have one maybe :lol: just a small opinion :lol:

Thanks, Lemming for remembering the name of the pizza place. Will be a nice place to relax and get something to eat after our crawl. :)

We can work it out :thumbup:
:thumbup:
@Ghost :thumbup: It doesn't really matter to me where we go, just hitting up some C.S.'s that are out of the main city will be nice. :mrgreen: And as Lemming said, if we hit up C.S. "Relax," last, De Pizzabakkers is close by. :D

Lemming wrote: Fri 16th Feb 2024 04:05 pm Base - Another perennial question is where we should make our default meeting place. Veterans will remember the long lost Nes café, which we've never really found a perfect replacement for. So, where should we meet on 17th? Batavia, Betty's (Bar 55), HSB, somewhere else?
@Lemming, I'm open to where everyone is comfortable and we're able to have a conversation with someone without yelling. :shock: :lol: Preferably somewhere inside. But I'll go where the majority wants to go. As long as we can drink beer & smoke weed. :mrgreen:
