What to do in May in Amsterdam

Vondelpark Open Air Theater starts May 14 until September 11th and is a free theater for everyone to visit in the centre of the Vondelpark. You can watch performances of modern dance, children’s theater, jazz or cabaret every friday, saturday and sunday. There are also classical lunch-concerts and every year there’s the popular sunday afternoon program with pop, rock, Dutch and World Music acts. Click here for more information.

The Roots Festival. This musically-inspired exhibition at the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam addresses a cultural revolution that spread across the world from Africa and the Caribbean, delivering genres such as jazz, blues, and reggae. ‘Rhythm & Roots’ is a colourful visual representation of the influence that the movement had on the world. Experience this vibrant exhibition from 13 May until 30 October 2016.

Another great event to go to is Rollende Keukens (Rolling Kitchens) on the Westergas terrain. Over a hundred campers, mopeds, double-deckers and vans are transformed to small kitchens that serve a diversity of food and drinks for every taste. Pizza’s, fresh soups, refined fish-dishes and smoothies can be consumed while watching an outdoor movie or in the sun. Click here for an impression of last year.

 

We wish you lot’s of fun whatever event or exhibition you are visiting, the weather is already great (finally) so enjoy! Find that perfect dress or top to wear on your day out on our website and check the storefinder for a selling point near you. Have a great week!

Love, 10 FEET

Shopping Report: Van Zuilen Mode in Gorinchem

A city that doesn’t come to mind right away when planning a day out but so worth it: Gorinchem! We will take you on a trip through this beautiful city in the province of Zuid-Holland, that is also pronounced as ‘Gorkum’. Gorinchem is situated between the cities Utrecht and Dordrecht, by the river De Linge. Did you know this is the hometown of the Dutch lead singer Dinand Woesthoff of the band Kane?

Lets start the day with breakfast at brasserie Le Bon ‘Apart in De Lingehaven, a tastefully decorated hotel-restaurant where you have lots too choose from the menu. Enjoy the lovely view over the harbor and the classy decorated restaurant. In the summer you can sit at the terrace by the water, what a start of the day!  For more information please check www.lebonapart.nl

After breakfast it is time to shop and Van Zuilen Mode is the right place to do so! The renovated store – at a 5 minute walking distance from the Lingehaven – is a 10 FEET selling-point that we’re very proud of. They sell both men and women’s clothes and of course a wide selection of our collection. The store is located in 8(!) historic buildings, including a 14th-century church with different shop-in-shops and also shoes. Regret not buying that dress? Check www.vanzuilenmode.nl for the online shop. Be amazed by this beautiful store and have yourself a shopping-spree! Click  here  for a nice impression of the online shop-process and the store.

DeGasterij_2
To wrap up a hopefully successful day you can have a lovely dinner at restaurant De Gasterij, located at the Grote Markt. The restaurant recently had a renovation and is definitely worth visiting for a delicious piece of (fair) meat, fish or maybe vegetarian? If you’re having trouble choosing there is a fairly priced 3-course menu with a good wine alongside. Enjoy a nice drink afterwards on the heated terrace to close of this day and we would love to see you again (at Van Zuilen Mode) in Gorinchem!
