Badass Tours

Every port town in the world had a street where sailors would tumble off their ships and into as much trouble as they could find. For Amsterdam, that street was the Zeedijk. As you start down the street, you’ll see a wooden bar with monkeys in the window called Café In ‘t Aepjen (In the Monkeys), rumored to be the source of the Dutch phrase for a bad situation: lodging with the monkeys. The story is that after sailors would go on a bender here, they’d pay with exotic animals that they’d brought back from their travels, such as monkeys.
