Announcing a new Meetup for The Amsterdam Museum Meetup Group!
What: Let?s Go Shrimp Fishing At Open Sea!
When: May 16, 2009 1:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: Shrimp fishing is an age old profession that I think you really need to see up close. Not from afar. Not on an oil canvas. Not on National Geographic, but in real life. With your own eyes.
Thus, we?re going to the island Texel. There we?ll board a shrimp boat and watch fishermen haul in loads of shrimp. Afterwards, we also get to share the spoils...
Perhaps it?s a bit of a boy thing, but I can?t wait to jump on board. I am a serious foodie and I?ve never seen huge trawler nets rising in the air, plunging into the waves and coming up with water dripping down and thousands of shrimps inside...
This outing, though, is also a bit of a trek, and you have to get up a bit early on your free Saturday, so I don?t expect much enthusiasm, but you?re more than welcome to join me if this event has stirred up your interest.
Admission: 9 euro (two hours out at sea).
Public transport: ca. 25 euro (getting there and back, almost three hours to get there).
Note: you have to make an individual advance booking for the shrimp fishing trip, so it?s wise to do that before you reply yes to this event.

BEFORE I FORGET:
We?re also going to the Amsterdam Hermitage in June. It reopens on June 20th after a spectacular renovation and is said to be a major art attraction far and wide. It?s definitely giving the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh a run for their money. I simply didn?t feel like spamming you twice, though, so I am not putting that in a separate e-mail announcement.
