The Avocado Show 

Foodies, pay attention: A new restaurant is going to open its doors in Amsterdam… And everything they serve is made with avocado! It will be called The Avocado Show, and this new concept will open in The Pijp, at the end of this month. 

You will be surprised how much is possible with avocado. According to the initiators of this restaurant Julien Zaal, Ron Simpson and Jaimie van Heije you can expect a wide range of delicious meals. Such as avocado burgers, avocado ice cream, chocolate smoothies with avocado, breaded avocado fries: the possibilities are endless. If you like it, this will be a must-visit for you in Amsterdam.

International Film Festival Rotterdam

Every year in Rotterdam, the International Film Festival takes place. This year the film festival will be from January 25th till February 5th. 


At the Film festival there is something for everyone. During twelve festival days, hundreds of filmmakers and other artists present their work to a large audience. The festival’s Official Selection includes some 252 feature films and 225 short films out of 50 countries. It aims to organise and stimulate film-related activities in Rotterdam.

Etch Clock

The Etch Clock is not like any other clock you’ve een before. This Swiss-designed clock is able to to mimic an “etched in stone” effect.

The clock can be adjusted by an app, to let users pick from two display modes: “Sync & Go” displays time automatically every 30 seconds; “Sync & Sensor” displays time every 30 seconds, but only when nearby sounds are detected.

Sampha concert 

At Hutspot we’ve always been big fans of Sampha, and we were really happy to hear that he is coming to Amsterdam for another concert in March!


Sampha is a British singer, keyboard player and producer. He became known for his collaborations with Frank Ocean, Drake, SBTKRT. One of our favorite songs still remains Without. On the 23rd of March he will visit paradiso for a concert, something you definitely don’t want to miss. Get your tickets here!

Open day at Gerrit Rietveld Academy 

The Gerrit Rietveld Academy is an art school in Amsterdam. And every year in January, they host an “Open day”.

During the annual open day, all departments and workshops open their doors to show all aspects of studying at the Rietveld Academy. During this day, you can find out what is next after successfully completing the first year.
