Has anyone got plans for a pre-gig gathering in Amsterdam? If not, may I suggest Cafe De Spuyt on Korte Leidsedwaarsstraat? It opens at 4pm and has some seriously good beer. No food though.

Slightly further away, but also having decent beer and also food, including vegetarian (according to the web site - I've only drunk there) is De Zotte . It does not open till 6pm though.

I'll be arriving early in the morning - it was the only affordable flight I could get - so will be around all day if anyone wants to socialise.
