Few places left for the 070 Twitterlunch on April 24, 2012
The highest time to revive this blog. As it aims to bring foreign language The Hague lovers, -workers and -inhabitants together with the locals we (i.e. Me) should put more effort in keeping it a bit more up to date.
Now there is an excellent opportunity to mix with Dutch Locals from The Hague and abroad: Amsterdam Based Event Queen @Puur, together with the The Hague based @filosoof and @1espresso are organizing a 070 Twitterlunch in Pavlov on April 24, 2012.
Have a look at this Page of @Puur and leave a note if you want to participate. Cost is € 8.- for a typical Dutch “Sandwich” Lunch (you know how we Dutch are. Don’t you?)
85 rections as of the moment of publishing this post. Because as always people will not show up, the organizers believe some 30 more can be accommodated.
The above photo is from the first #twaartup I was able to attend some time ago. A twaartup is a tweetup with coffee or tea and cake rather than sandwiches. A new 070 #twaartup is in the works. I will keep you posted.
The Hague is the centre of Dutch fashion from 28 October – 7 November 2010.

The Dutch Fashion Foundation will host the ‘Dutch Fashion Awards 2010’ in The Hague on 5 November.
