What is your favorite part of the job?

Besides the free drinks and rubbing elbows with club owners, the best part was spending time at clubs and bars I normally would pass up. I also perfected the art of skipping lines and taking notes under spinning disco balls.

Short Story/Anecdote from your time on the job:

From the coffeeshops to the clubs, there’s a lot of ground to cover in a nightlife mecca like Amsterdam. As a journalist determined to cover all the bases, reviewing for Party Earth eventually sent me into the dark and sultry sex theaters of the Red Light District.

It wasn’t long until I stepped into the famous Casa Rosso armed with just a pen and paper. And as the only single babe scribbling notes at a porn show, I was an easy target for the remaining audience.

I decided an accurate write-up wouldn’t work without getting involved. At least that’s what the performer told me, as she grabbed my hand and pulled me on stage.

What happened next? You’ll just have to make a visit to find out the meaning of “audience participation.”

Which Party Earth reviewer(s) do you resemble most and why?

I’m a hybrid: Most of my time out is spent mingling in a local atmosphere and catching live gigs, but it’s hard to resist a good DJ and fun dance floor. My drink of choice will always be a well-crafted microbrew, though I’ll hold the occasional cocktail.

What is your perfect day in Amsterdam? What are you doing and where are you going from morning to night?

Hop on the bike and cruise to the outdoor markets for record shopping. Grab a coffee at a brown café, people-watch, and read the paper. A sunny afternoon means cycling through parks or along the rivers before heading to a local brewery for a few rounds with friends. Then it’s off to another unforgettable concert before ending the night at an afterhours bar, polishing the evening with good beats and a fun crowd.
