Or better, what did we do.
On Friday some of us started with setting up the gear, while others already had a headstart and headed over to the 1st bar.
By the time they were at the 3rd or 4th we joined them and the night on the town really set off.
Given previous experiences, we all appreciated the law of
nature that before you start drinking, you should eat first. So
By about 11pm we were ready to continue the quest of bars and clubs in Rotterdam.
At The Consul we met up with Michael and Susan.
When walking in I accidentally (honestly :) bumped a woman who was ehhh, very friendly about that :)
Next stop was a bar/club which name I can't remember. I've asked and have been told about a dozen times, but somehow I keep thinking of Def Leppard, which is not at all like the name of that bar. When walking in a woman jumped up and greeted me in eehhh somewhat intimate way. She apparently thought she knew me better than she did :) The pix also show the female bartender, two friends at the bar and Melle pointed at something that he probably thought was an UFO :)

Next was a club called Vibes. When we entered it was still
rather quiet, but of course the masses followed us shortly :)
Some of us really got out there and danced, others just wiggled a bit and took pictures of the local scenery.
We only left Vibes to move on to a somewhat shabby joint. I won't repeat here what happened there, I'll just say that when one of the guys started to pet a dog telling it how 'lovely she was', we thought it was time to leave :) back at the office Marnix and Anne played a Lan-game or two, but retired to bed soon after.

(Try to figure out who made which :)
Saturday was the day of the 'Fast Forward Dance
Parade'. Basically a couple of hundred of thousands of people
dancing in the streets on music played on big rigs that move down
the street which are populated by dancers.
We of course had to be part of that. So after Saskia, Onno and Michael (who'd been 'sensible' the night before and had walked the mere 15km home :) had arrived we walked down town and joined the big party. Again some danced like there was no tomorrow (even while taking pictures :), while others simply enjoyed the atmosphere of the event.
After the last truck had passed and the last tone sort of had died we headed back towards the office. Not to stop on our way for some refreshments or to hang out at Melle's local bar though. And of course we met him and his girlfriend there :) As if I didn't already looked weird enough Saskia decided that my T-shirt wasn't letting enough air in. A problem that was easily 'solved' :)
Back at the office it was time to do some serious R&R, so we watched 'Haunted' with he beamer Onno had brought (almost like the big screen).
Although we'd planned to also do some gaming that weekend, the dancing of the night and day before had taken it's toll, so at around 10pm we packed it in and went home where some didn't quite finish partying yet :)
All in all a fun weekend again. See you at the next BYOCG ?
