Amsterdam | Store | A local headshop on West Hastings where patrons aren’t thrown out for smoking weed (just so long as they don’t ask where they can buy it). Though officially called the “New Amsterdam Cafe”, no one uses the “New” or the “Cafe”.

Usage: “I took my American friends to the Amsterdam and they left puddles on the floor.”
