Following up on the topic of the 18th, there will be, as Han mentioned, an Indonesian/Dutch Bazaar at the Napredak Hall in San Jose. Again, the Netherlands Society of Northern California is the sponsor. Admission is $1.50 (cheap!) and children under 12 are free (rats, I have to pay to get Andrew in now).
I've been to the last two Indonesian/Dutch bazaars in San Jose and they have been outstanding eating experiences. A few commercial, but mostly home foodmakers bring Indonesian and Dutch specialties to sell at the bazaar. Most stalls are selling sampler plates or items ala carte. There are also craft sellers there, so if you've been hankering after some Indonesian clothing or artwork, this is also a good opportunity in that respect.
Napredak Hall is located at 770 Montague Expressway, and is quite convenient to the Montague exit off of 880 or 101.
I know that I'm going to be there and Han Lukito will be there in one fashion or another. It would be great to get a group of folks together to enjoy the bazaar. If we can organize this, we could probably hold space at one of the tables (this being the cold season, the bazaar is held indoors, so tables are at a premium). Otherwise, standing around eating a plate of Indonesian goodies (and some Dutch pastries from Holland's Best Bakery) is also highly pleasurable.
Hope to see many of you there. Drop me a line if you're interested in meeting up.
