What do we all know about Amsterdam?
Bikes, hookers, drugs, and canals, right?
Well, the first three are readily available in just about any Brooklyn neighborhood you choose.
But there's only one canal!
And breathing in its fumes gives you a pretty good buzz.
The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club (gowanuscanal.org) offers self-guided tours on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
So get ready to do some kayaking! It's just like (nothing like) Amsterdam!
After you've worked up an appetite, head over to The Clover Club (210 Smith Street btwn Baltic and Butler) for a Tom Collins and devilled eggs.
You're not going there because it is Dutch in any way—it's just delicious.
But nobody goes to Amsterdam for the food.
Unless they want to eat pancakes.
Because they're high.
