Drift 009: Oud-Charlois Rotterdam

Free RSVP — Facebook event page

On Sunday, June 3 at 15:00, Drift Club Amsterdam takes the second in a series of trips to Rotterdam. This time, we’ll explore the urban village of Oud-Charlois, across the Maas, in Rotteram Zuid. We will meet in front of the Robin Hood 2nd Hand Store at Boergoensestraat 17 19, 3082 KA Rotterdam.

Drift 009 coincides with Charlois Special, a 10-day neighborhood festival, where the doors of the many neighborhood artists and musicians are open to the public.

Mark yourself as ‘going’ on the Facebook event page (or drop me an email at daniel.genser@gmail.com), and feel free to share the invite with anyone who’d like to join us!

Drift 008: Oude Noorden Rotterdam

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.
