A lot of new faces. Time to get to work, Monty! We have a lot to put in place and for the new guys to get integrated. I'm excited to have a real point guard for the first time in a while.

I didn't think about the timing, but I just booked my trip to Amsterdam for that week. The time difference will be a killer.

Yeah, you just end up sitting in traffic waiting for the red lights to change.

I went on a guided tour of the district my 2nd or 3rd time there. It was given by a former worker in the district. It is one of my favorite tours ever.

I was there 5 times last year, and the food is amazing. I wouldn't want to live in the city because it would so expensive with our kids to find a place, but I really like the city.

5 times a year? It wouldn't be, say, oh I don't know....the coffee shops?!

Definitely one of the coolest cities out there.

My first experience a few years back - arrived late at night, AirBnB in De Jordaan, having a beer with a couple buds and, not like I didn't know how it was, but as I'd never been before it was still a case of asking: "So you're telling me, I can just walk into that cafe and buy it? ... Really"?

Cool as sh*t even though I was, and am, a 364 out of 365 day a year non-partaker (occasional visits to Amsterdam excluded!).

My favourite bar is t'smalle if you're inclined - local beer and meat plates are great.

Caveat - there's enough about the city without the coffee shops so not suggesting anything in the post above! Just recounting my first, very memorable, experience.

ha! I had to go there for work a lot last year as I was hiring folks there and went out for interviews, offers, first day, 90 day review, etc. All that stuff.

Only went into a coffee shop once in all my times, and never smoked (in amsterdamn or anywhere). I did buy some edibles while there on vacation with my wife and it wasn't a great experience--i guess we are light weights in that area. Not really my thing. Now a great whiskey, that's my thing.

Edibles and drinking have brought about many an early night in Amsterdam - is not my thing either.

And never understood whiskey sadly, I'll take a cloudy beer any day instead...

Indica = Go to sleep

Sativa = Sleep? I am having too much fun.

The Heineken factory gives tours that Homer would appreciate.

The coffee shops in Amsterdam aren't much to cough at once you've experienced full legalization stateside.

How many states have full legalization of recreational cannabis? I know CO does.
