Since last Thursday, our famous afterworkparty 'Boeremet' is again happening on weekly basis. Thanks to the great weather, it was yet a very succesfull edition on Thursday 16th of April. And for this coming Thursday, the weatherforecast is again very sunny with temperatures of 20° C. Perfect circumstances to organise the 'Flash Colors' edition. Join us next Thursday, from 5 p.m. The Boeremet, Brussels' Best Evening Experience 2014 !
Boeremet's 16 April's edition will be dedicated to "Télévie 2015". Less known amongst the Dutch-speaking community, this initiative is sponsored by RTL (French-speaking TV-station) and has been founded by the French-speaking community for raising money for "the good cause" . This year's focus will be on the campaign against cancer, leucemia in particular (in Flanders, a similar action is set up under the name "Kom op tegen kanker"). Our Boeremet is sponsoring TELEVIE. All the more reasons for asking you to wear something in red, or why not simply pinning-up a heart, in support of Télévie.
Just like any other year, tradition wants that the local traders' association uniting traders from the Anderlecht slaughterhouse and markets' vicinity donate an easter lamb to the royal family. With the opening of "FOODMET" coming nearer, the new Abattoir food hall, the delegation was obviously composed of traders related to the Foodmet (butchers, fruit and vegetable traders, horeca, urban farm, ...). M. Joris Tiebout, our CEO, was pleased to show them the way to the Palace all along the Brederodestraat, in the very heart of Brussels.
Yesterday evening, in the charming settings of the Etterbeek "Albert Hall", the award ceremony of the "Visit Brussels Awards 2014" took place. Boeremet was amongst the three nominees in the category 'Best Evening Experience'. The jury and the public were unanimous in their choice and voted in favour of our Boeremet. So finally, our weekly afterwork party got what it had been deserving for so long already. Congratulations to the entire Boeremet team, and a warm "thank you" for all our fans/voters.
On Wednesday 1 April, "Buitenspeeldag 2015/Play-outside-day-2015", Cultureghem asbl (non-profit) will open the Abattoir site for playing activities. The Flemish TV-stations will interrupt their childrens programmes between 13.00 and 17.00 hrs, so there will be no excuse for staying inside. On the contrary, you will be invited to get to know initiatives such as COURT CIRCUIT, KET MET and KOOKMETKOEKJESFABRIEK XL (the cooking with biscuits factory xl)...
