Grapedistrict anniversary celebration
Grapedistrict is celebrating their ten-year anniversary and they’re doing so by holding a wine event in Amsterdam’s De Hallen. The event will take place from 3 – 5 November. For three days, the wine shop will open the biggest wine bar that Amsterdam has ever known. Come in for a tasting (and buy a few bottles for your own wine collection while you’re at it). Entry tickets are EUR 7,5 (but includes one glass of wine).
The Vietnamese food trend seems to be unstoppable in Amsterdam. Opening up soon is Bo Nam – an initiative by Casper Reinders and his associates from Dynasty, Lion Noir and Woo Bros. We’ll be writing about another Casper Reinders joint soon (Blue Boy – up next week) but already can’t wait to visit Bo Nam!

MR by Man Repeller
Leandra Medine is one of the most influential fashion bloggers with her Man Repeller site and we adore her for her man-repelling outfits! Leandra recently teamed up with Net-A-Porter to design a collection of shoes in the style she’s known for – daring, bold and colorful. We’re talking about golden metallic boots with a cheeky red line, pink velvet boots and embellished platform heels. These superhero-style shoes will certainly demand attention from passers-by!
Next weekend museums are extending opening hours until late for the Museumnacht crowd. What started as a fun initiative in the beginning has become one of the essential nights out for the young and artful. This year expect another crazy program from Japanese book binding at the Outsider Art Museum or a bag design contest at Tassenmuseum Hendrikje. 5 November – tickets EUR 19,95.
