Open Coffee Almere, still fun and enjoyable

Today's the first Thursday of the month, which means that it was time for another installment of Open Coffee Almere. It was our fifth get-together and I was glad to see about a dozen people show up. There were two other regulars, but the rest of'm were all new faces. One attendant even came down from the Leiden area!

I enjoyed myself tremendously and got to meet a few interesting people. The aforementioned gentleman does something really cool: he provides clinics where he combines lectures on champagne (the drink) with a certain message that management wants to convey to their colleagues. Say for example that a company would like to Go Green! (as they say). He would start the usual clinic about champagne and its many intricacies and then veer off towards ecological farming and how there's an analogy with what the company would like to achieve. I'm making a mess of explaining it, but it's really pretty cool -> Champagne Experience.

Today was the first time we'd gathered at the Tante Truus lunch room in town. I had no idea what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised. The decor is lovely, the pie's great and the coffee awesome (they include a glass of water and a smidge of Baileys plus whipped cream with every coffee). I'd heartily recommend Truus for lunch or a break in the Almere Stad area. tags: ,
