  • Goodbye Georgetown, Hello Senate - Plus a Few Tidbits

    Being a born-and-raised Dutchman, I thoroughly enjoyed the last two FIFA World Cups, where we finished as runners-up and in third place, respectively (I’ll conveniently ignore the last few Euro Cups though). A huge part of that enjoyment came from watching the majority of the games at the Georgetown (1159 Bank Street). Especially as the Georgetown was the unofficial-official hangout for Dutch soccer fans and was nicknamed “the Dutch Lair” on game day (the Dutch soccer emblem is a lion).
