We'll be in Amsterdam from April 25 thru May 1, and hope see some of you there. Our 1st 2 nights were to be in the Leidseplein area but... With the sinking dollar, and some other factors, we've had to cancel our 2 nights at the Rookies Hotel, and stay all 6 nights out past the Concertgebouw. I know it's in the sticks - but the room is free; we should snag Executive lounge privileges, which means free snacks & drinks throughout the day; A good friend is an agent for the company, and any MOJO she has will be applied to our reservation. That being said, there's not much said here at Hip Forums; at Amsterdam Coffeeshop Directory; or at Channels knowledge base, for the following 'closest' coffeeshops: Harley/Pacific Glory* Tootsie* De Graal Jabba De Kade Goed Goed Any comments on these shops would be much appreciated. *no 'customer' reviews of these 2 at any of the sites. Others have reviews, but some are dated.
