So I’m going to be in Brussels helping to set up my company’s first European office next week. I’ll be landing Sunday morning, working Monday-Wednesday, and leaving Thursday morning.
I expect that I’ll end up getting roped in to working dinners both nights, but on the off chance I manage to get away from my boss for an evening, can anybody give me any recommendations on things to check out?
I usually have the most fun in foreign cities just wandering around. My tastes run toward the arty/underground rock/trashy/cafe slacking rather than the snooty - think used record stores, thrift shops, and bars with Plastic Bertrand on the jukebox. I don’t have a problem with museums and churches, but I probably won’t have much time for them on this trip.
