Yesterday my nephew Steven and his friend Marco were here. Together we visited my mother in the hospital. When returning to Haaksbergen we went to “De Markt 2” for something to eat. This time I tried the mixed-grill that my friend Patrick had last time I was there. And yes, it was delicious as always.
After dinner we stayed there some time and we did drink some more. Too bad there was no more bokbeer that I like so much. I hope they will get it again, but then the season for bokbeer is almost over. So well, maybe next autumn again
Fun moment was that we did sit at a table in the none smoking part, but Steven smokes… so every time he wanted to smoke he had to stay just outside the none smoking area… Now no one can complain about the service at “De Markt 2”, the waiter even did hold the ashtray for him…
Well, after all the bad things Marco said about our beloved Grolsch I got him finally drinking it… And no, not normal ones, but glasses of a half liter each…
It was a nice evening and I laughed a lot. It is fun to make jokes about the parts of the country where one lives (they come from the southern part of The Netherlands which is called “Limburg”). All was said in in a good sense of humor, so all was okay.
Later at home we talked for a long time (until around 4am) about many subjects that came to mind. This while enjoying a “kruidenbitter”.
