I'm heading to Amsterdam for a week for a work event but I'm taking some extra time while I'm there because I've never been. This will be an ongoing list as the trip happens.

  46. My entire reason for going to Amsterdam was to attend an event/dinner that was to unveil a top secret collection from designer Marcel Wanders and Alessi. The collection was circus-inspired and the event was completely insane in the best possible way.
    Static
    The night included a silent elevator bellhop on roller skates, jesters that served us food and drinks all night, a man on stilts messing with us while we were eating, a magician, a marching band, an insane amount of alcohol, and lots of fun.
  47. Here's part of the collection
    Static
    They added color to stainless steel tabletop items.
  48. Marcel Wanders making a speech
    Static
    He's one of my favorite designers and he's charming as hell. Like, he makes me melt listening to him. Somehow, I was seated next to him at dinner and it was incredible.

    Plus, his Amsterdam list of things to do was 💯! It was our bible.
