Hi there fellow Belgians in Melbourne. We're introducing our monthly Manneken Pils get-togethers where we will catch up every first Thursday of the month at different venues in/around the city for some afterwork drinks.
This will be a great opportunity to connect and network with other Belgians in Melbourne and bring the Belgian community in Melbourne and surroundings closer together.
It's not a Belgian only event, everybody is welcome, please feel free to bring your colleagues and friends as well.
September Manneken Pils: Thursday 6th of September from 6pm onwards @ Arbory Bar (Flinders Walk, Melbourne) - Right in between Flinders St train station and the Yarra River. No Belgian themed venue this time, but easily accessible by train so nobody has to count the number of pints one can drink.
We'll make ourselves visible with a Belgian flag. Hope to see you there.
The world cup 2018 went into the books with a new record. Never did the Belgians come so close to the title, and never did so many Red Devils' enthusiasts gather together in Melbourne. Legendary goals were celebrated while the Belgian playlist was put on repeat. As a cherry on the pie this period of patriotic gatherings was closed off with the Belgian National Day.
A big thank you to everyone who joined the events: it was LEGEND!
After a short break, the BCV will pick up where it has left. As of September there are a number of great events in the pipeline; monthly afterwork drinks, the yearly mussel event, Saint Nicholas and a pick-nick.
Each time a new event comes up, one of the BCV members writes an article to keep you posted about all the details.
