Newyears dinner 2024

The famous AYOP New Year’s dinner for members will take place on Friday, January 26, 2024. We will then toast the new year together, chat informally and enjoy culinary delights during a walking dinner with entertainment. And, now for the last time, say goodbye to Yolanda Los.

Piece of history
We have chosen a special location with a an industrial appearance: Pont 13 in Amsterdam. Built in 1927, this steam ferry was converted into a diesel-electric ferry in 1956. After serving for years for the transport of pedestrians and motor vehicles across the IJ, it was sold by the GVB and used for freight transport to IJburg. After some wandering, it was eventually offered for sale in Zaandam as ‘old iron’. Saved from demolition, Pont 13 was converted into a bar-restaurant. Many elements from that time have been preserved or reused in the interior. Since 2005, Pont13 has had a berth in the Houthavens of Amsterdam. A special location, with a beautiful view of the Amsterdam harbours, new architecture and ships of all shapes and sizes.

Your own music
Guitarist Son makes the evening complete! In addition to a good voice, he has an enormous repertoire. Too big to perform everything during the walking dinner. That is why it is possible to request all your favorite songs in advance when registering for dinner. Don’t hesitate and submit your requests.

Memory with a wink
There will also be a cartoonist walking around who doesn’t take it all that seriously and can capture you on a beer mat. A nice memory of a special dinner.
