Favourites of Snowy Dopheide

snowyHostel: Downtown

Name: Snowy Dopheide

Job function: Maintenance

Favourite restaurant: Abyssinia, an Ethiopian restaurant, with really good food. The beer is served in a coconut and you get one big plate that you share with your friends at the table.

Favourite bar: Belqique, it’s a nice place with different kinds of beer. It’s kind of small but they have live music.

Favourite club: The Sugar Factory, very cool music and it’s not too hardcore like the hard style music that the Dutchies tend to like somehow.

Favourite coffee shop: Betty Boop, very cheap hash and it’s right around the corner from the Downtown Pig.

Favourite attraction in Amsterdam: I like to go to the Amsterdams forest where there are have sport fields surrounded by beautiful trees and ideal for playing frisbee and soccer.
