Hi John:

Bill & I like Aba Jour a lot last year, and will stop in again on this trip.

Great recommendation!

Also, for entertainment value, 't Velootje (The Bicycle bar) is a wacky place for a beer.

My review, "This small eclectic place's name means "little bicycle". The 500 year old space off the canal is jam-packed with many bike artifacts, lanterns and a burgundian open hearth. The bikes hang from the ceiling, even in the small bathroom! Very atmospheric, with an eccentric bearded owner and scores of remarkable regional beers like Braven Apostel and Hellekelter Bier. The music at t'Velootje is folk and classical. They even host a regular pipe club meeting in this small, wood-centric space. An unusual, but very entertaining place to have a beer."

Galgenhuisje is great too!

Gent is Bill's favorite place in Belgium.

Proost!

Warren
