Rotterdam alumni event is at full capacity!

We are very happy and very sad at the same time… Our alumni event in Rotterdam is filled to capacity and the venue has requested we do not take on any more attendees.

Approximately 20 alumni will attend this popular Pitt Europe event for alumni. They come largely from the Netherlands but we welcome a few alum from Belgium and France. They happened to be in the neighborhood! (Cue “small world” Disney song here…)

The event is held at the massively popular restaurant BY AMI in Rotterdam. The place is at the waterside and features a large terrace.

But the popularity comes from the gigantic, colorful Instawalls hand painted by an artist and friend of the owner Jeroen van der wall.

The place features five of these huge graffiti and the rest of the inside is decorated lavishly to match the walls.

Chef and owner Ahmed has gone to great lengths to create equally colorful and appealing plates and dishes, making each course a visual treat as well as a mouthwatering experience. Add custom printed frothed milk cappuccinos and designer-level cocktails and you can see why the restaurant quickly fills to capacity. Especially with lockdown having finished a couple of weeks ago and many people trying to make the best of it while they can.
