Was waiting for this stop ... only had one night here so we had to make it count!
Our 2 level apartment provided some well needed space after some cramped accomodations in Paris. First thing We did was wander over to a Beer tasting store to pick up some tasty trappist beer. We grabbed 3 large bottles and sat down like a family to do our own beer tasting! it was Delicious!!! we then went out for dinner, in this one alley we were accosted by several restaraunt employees practically begging us to come inside... the funny thing was that all of the menus and pictures seeemed to be identical ... we caved on one place, the beer was good, food was just ok, when the bill came we noticed they charged us $8-$10 for side orders we didnt order ... needless to say we got scammed and the owner wasnt too pleased when we left no tip ... lesson learned!
A few of the guys went out for a cruise of the city with a local Canine unit one of the guys knew... was pretty cool i hear .... we headed out to a local pub we told was good ... 3-4 beer later the night starts to become a blur, we kept forgetting that most of these belgiun beers we were drinking were not the standard 5% we see in canada, some were up to 12%!!! was a good night, even ran into the owner of the restaraunt and had a good laugh with him!
Next day was waffles for breakfast, and chocolate shopping for friends and family
