oto Collages - aankondiging novdec

It’s almost the end of 2014.. No idea which events we still organise in the remaining months of this year? You’d better check our events page then! More dates might be added but for now the schedule is as follows: 

 

ADULTS

– 28 November: expatsHaarlem Monthly Drink (every last Friday of the Month)

In these times of uncertainty, where nothing is what it seems, where technology is taking over and where there is no such thing as ‘there are no facts, only interpretations’, one thing is for sure: Every last Friday of the month, there will ALWAYS be the expatsHaarlem monthly drink. So come and join us to celebrate the end of the month and week together!

– 30 November: Dutch Language Café

Come join us and drink some good Haarlem beer and have a nice relaxing Sunday. Come and practice speaking Dutch in a relaxed environment. We are all here to help each other, no pressure! It’s best to know a little bit of Dutch so you are not too lost, knowing a lot of Dutch is not required, and hey, the beer helps! And which beer is better than the local Haarlem Jopen beer? Never tasted it? Time to try! This is a joint event with the Amsterdam Dutch Language MeetupFrom January: the Dutch Language Café opens its doors every 2nd Wednesday evening of the month in Café Stempels. Don’t miss it.

– 7 December: Christmas AperiParty

It’s the time of the year again….. Sinterklaas, Christmas, December drinks & parties, surprises and gifts…. We can’t miss it. We want to celebrate it together… in a church! Yes, we rented a church. The magnificent Heilig Hart Kerk in Haarlem. Which place could be better to celebrate Christmas? Very close to Haarlem CS, so very easy to reach from Amsterdam, Leiden, Hoofddorp etc. as well. Our barman and chef Luigi will pamper you with a fabulous ITALIAN APERITIVO/BUFFET with pastas, pizzas, homemade focaccine, quiche, assorted crostini, tramezzini, cheese, ham… etc. (believe us, you will not be hungry for dinner anymore!). And WINE, of course. For the Kids Luigi will prepare pane e Nutella, patatine, biscotti e torta! Nick & Marco will prepare a bilingual quiz. Kids specialist Isabelle will give a BILINGUAL WORKSHOP CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS to bring home for our little guests. Please send us the name and age of your kid(s). Christmas and other music will bring us into the best Christmas atmosphere. LET’S CELEBRATE the December festivities together, join the CHRISTMAS APERIPARTY!

– 19 December: expatsHaarlem Monthly Drink (every last Friday of the Month)

PARENTS & KIDS

– 28 November: Appel Group Meeting 

Apple Group Meetings. During the whole month of NOVEMBER expatsHaarlem Parents & Kids will meet EVERY FRIDAY at 10 am at Appel. Are you joining THE APPEL GROUP? Looking forward to meeting you there!

– 30 November: Kids Workshop: Pepernoten-boxes with homemade pepernoten!

Just have one then, and another, and another, okay the last one… You can buy bags filled with these bite size ginger cookies at the market. But there is nothing better than sticking your fingers in a big ball of dough, tasting just a bit too much of it and rolling little balls with the palm of your hand. The best thing for the impatient baker is that they take within 15 minutes in the oven! In the meantime we’ll be making little pepernoten gift boxes from recycled plastic for your homemade pepernoten. Of course you’d like to find out how many fit in your mouth at once but what a great gift it would be for your grandma, teacher or neighbor! One thing is for sure everything tastes better when its homemade. The best is still to come… The one and only Sinterklaas is paying a visit to Pippa’s at 15:30 to inspect the pepernoten. So join in the baking on the 30th of november at 15:00 and make an original pepernoten gift box. From 2 years onwards. The price (€ 7 p.p. means per kid).

HAARLEM PHOTO CLUB

– 13 December: Christmas Market & Anton Pieck Parade

The Christmas Market in Haarlem is one of the biggest and nicest Christmas markets in the whole Netherlands and Benelux.  Every year the city turns in a real spectacle. Be enchanted and ready to capture the wonderful Christmas atmosphere in the city. We can also enjoy the Anton Pieck Parade. For one day, a historic part of Haarlem is going back in time. On the Grote Markt and the streets behind the cathedral Grote Bravo you will experience the revival of the early 1900s. It will be buzzing with a lot of festive activities, 19th century figures and old time crafts. Join us on this unique occasion to “taste” the real Anton Pieck atmosphere and take inimitable photos. More details about route will follow soon. One is certain, afterwards we are going to have a drink, X-mas drink in a cozy cafe.
