Hi Silvia, welcome to the Expats meet Dutchies group! Looking forward to meet you soon ! Please read my post for newbies: http://www.meetup.com/ ExpatsMeetDutchies/messages/boards/thread/37614112#108095452. Sunny greetings, Lexy 'the curly girl'
Locals & expats living in wonderful Utrecht. (Anyone living in the province of Utrecht & beyond.)
Nederlanders zijn van harte uitgenodigd om lid te worden.
Purpose of the group is ....
To have fun in lovely Utrecht and the surrounding area. Gezellig. Drinking, chatting, mingling & other activities.
What kind of events ....
- Go out drinking at some cafe/pub in Utrecht. (Followed by a club.)
- Mini pubcrawls to 2-3 pubs to explore the city.
- Excursions to Amsterdam to explore that city.
- Dinner at restaurants (in small groups).
- Compete in a pubquiz.
- Depending on the group size, hitching/leeching of events from other groups & organisations like meetin, internations, weekendutch, abc-club, etc. (These are not as 'digital' as meetup.com.) Redundant if this group grows big enough.
- Visit museums in Utrecht.
- Attend concerts, movies & other cultural events.
- Practise speaking Dutch events for expat members.
Less likely but not impossible:
- Sporting events. (Both watching and participating.)
- Visiting concerts/museums out-off-town.
- Event dates & times won't be limited to just Friday & Saturday nights.
- Possibility for multiple events on same day. Nice to have options. (See next remark.)
- Some event will be self-organizing, iow the organizer cannot be present. Show up and find each other.
