2. There's one called Dutch Flowers
I think it's near the central train station. But my memories of A-dam are pretty vague.

6. I remember that one!
I was sitting here thinking, "Hmmm, not surprisingly, I can't remember any names." But that one I visited several times. The guy who ran it was cool as shit.

Yep, right on the menu, it tells you which ones were Cannibis Cup winners. We, of course, tried them all.

10. Yep, tried the Double Bubble.
And Yellow Submarine and Purple Haze. Easy ones to remember, I suppose.

Thanks for the link! It was fun to see a picture of the place, exactly as I remembered. :)

11. Oh, it's cheap.
That was the beautiful part. We were like kids in a candy shop with a $100 bill! We had so much of some of the best pot imaginable, it was difficult to smoke it all in the time we were there!

If I remember correctly, it was roughly a third of the cost. I don't know how much costs differ regionally here in the US, but usually an eighth of good shit will runs $50-$60 in my experience (Midwest). There? $20-$25? Someone can correct me on that, but that's what I remember.

Oh, and before you posted a pic the other night, I'd never seen this vodka before.

I believe he's been over there more than once.

14. Coffee Shop no. 36
Can't remember the street name, but its rear overlooks the canal beside Damrak, just down from Centraal Station.

15. For atmosphere.....
Edited on Thu Sep-29-05 02:11 AM by Robeson
...I like The Rockery...very cool vibe, and nice ambiance. The Grasshopper is right off the main street and is convenient for a quick "coffeebreak". Not the best of selections there, but its a good daytime - on the run - place to just drop in for a minute when you are going from one place to the next.

For late night ambiance, though, The Rockery is very chill and laid back.
