Tonight the group went to the very classy and upscale cocktail and piano bar, CLUB RaYE’ ( in French, ray yay, meaning stripes). Yes stripes everywhere. Just minutes from our hotel by metro but a few arrived by taxi before the rest. We were led down to the cellar where we were set up and Preston was already enjoying his Moscow Mule served in a copper cup. The bartenders here know what’s up, from a properly mixed cosmopolitan to a French 75. Our very engaging and accommodating host, Nick was on point and handled the group’s requests with the greatest of ease. They had a menu of “Bar Bites” which included items like: Shanghai Spring Rolls with sweet chili dipping sauce, chili con carne, lasagna, a hot and naked dog, etc. everything came from the kitchen fresh, hot and tasty.
The day had been quite a full day with sightseeing and shopping for the group escorted by Dedie but they were all hangin’ real tough even though most were looking forward to a very early start the next morning taking the train to the wild and crazy Amsterdam. You know where what happens in A’dam stays right there ; be it artistic, cultural, historical or smoker’s delight. OMG, if coffee house walls could talk. I doubt if anyone will have a report for me.
Tonight was a good night. Everyone was enjoying their cocktails, mingling and socializing and I did my usual, said good night to all and made my exit. Saturday and Sunday are leisure days for all to do their thug thizzle whatever that may be.
Until next time,
