Weekend tips for october 2, 3 & 4

October just started and despite the fact that fall has really began, we can still enjoy the sun this weekend! Gather all your friends and enjoy drinks or lunch on a great terrace somewhere in Amsterdam. I’m flying to New York to update the City Guide (also very cool). But unfortunately I will miss out on so many cool things to do this weekend! Mr. Porter will open the doors as well as Gin Neo Bistro & Wines. Luckily I already had dinner at Mr Porter and it was delicious! Also nice: Amsterdam Eats a food festival with only organic food! And did you see our new blog about Amsterdam North yet? >> Have a great weekend!
