On Sunday, May 6 at 15:00, Drift Club Amsterdam takes a trip to Rotterdam. We will explore certain features of Oude Noorden Rotteram and the adjacent Hofpleinlijnviaduct. The address we will meet at is Delftseplein 37, 3013 AA Rotterdam.
Check Google for specific train information, but it looks like there are several options in the 13:30–14:20 time frame that will get you there from Amsterdam Centraal. If you end up taking an Intercity Direct, you get a 40% discount on the supplement ticket during off-peak hours.
Here’s the mix created for DRIFT 008. You can stream it here, or download it below.

Also consider making a full day of it and seeing more of Rotterdam! There’s so much to see that’s sometimes not immediately visible. If you go early, consider checking out Museum Bojimans — it’s brilliant.
As always, please mark ‘going’ on the Facebook RSVP so we know how many are coming. Afterward, all are invited to stick around for post-DRIFT drinks and borrel.
RSVP Free — Sunday, May 6, 15:00
Sidenote: I’m actively looking for a different event RSVP system, mainly to disentangle myself from Facebook a bit more. I’m not necessarily opposed to Facebook in everything, but since creating a dedicated page for Drift Club Amsterdam, I’ve been overwhelmed with notifications, ads, and software UI debris to the point where it makes me want to ditch Facebook for event management altogether. Do any of you use an event management app or service that you actually like using? Let me know.
The weather is looking great for our first Drift of the season. This Sunday, April 8 at 15:00 we meet at the entrance of Beth Haim in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. The address is Kerkstraat 10, 1191 JB Ouderkerk aan de Amstel.
It’s the perfect opportunity for a nice bike ride down the Amstel, however if you’d rather take public transport, you can take the 54 metro to Bijlmer Station and then it’s a 15 minute walk, according to Google.

Last DRIFT 0f 2017 before winter hiatus. We’ll return in March with a new season of Drift Club. Tot ziens! Until then, enjoy the mix from DRIFT 006.
DRIFT 006 has been scheduled for Sunday, October 29 at 2pm in Spaarndammerbuurt. Bring your earbuds, a camera, and your fully charged phone. We’ll meet at the western entrance of Westerpark.
We’ll explore the Amsterdam School buildings of Spaarndammerbuurt, snap some photos, and listen to a custom mix of synchronized walking tunes. We can end the DRIFT with beers at one of the bars on Spaarndammerstraat.
