Belgium, its beers & cheeses…

Beer is the proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy »
(Benjamin Franklin, inventor of lightening conductor and author of this phrase)

Belgian beers and cheeses are numerous.
Mostly monks have contributed to the Belgian cheese specificity.

On the current territory of Belgium more than seventy abbeys existed in the order of the Cistercians alone. Several of these have continued the tradition of pure artisan production.

Not only of cheese, but "everything that goes with it"...: bread, artisanal syrups and especially the famous abbey beers which are making of Belgium "the"country of beers.

SURPRISE! - the dinner show


Une soirée inoubliable et conviviale.

Endroit: Hôtel avec grand parking et possibilité de réserver une chambre à prix spécial.

Dans une salle privatisée pour le groupe:

A l'arrivée ou entre les différents plats:

- NETTOYAGE & CIRAGE CHAUSSURES ! Détendez-vous dans notre Chaise ShoeShine pendant que vos chaussures sont nettoyées et cirées par un professionnel. Il utilise les meilleurs produits sur le marché. Un supplément s'applique dans le cas de chaussures particulièrement sales ou de bottes.

- LE SPECTACLE DES FAUSSAIRES ! Ils sont deux. Leur spécialité : Faire du vrai avec du faux! Des imposteurs qui ont plus d’un tour dans leur catalogue. Un exemple…? Ce soir ils sont faux-serveurs.
Les véritables serveurs du jour sont en place et vaquent à leurs occupations coutumières. Nos acteurs jouent la carte de l’intégration totale, ils officient comme les membres de la brigade. Rien, à première vue et dans un premier temps, ne permet à l’œil des convives de démasquer l’imposture. Puis l’affaire se met en place. Insidieusement, leur art de l’improvisation en milieu naturel s’immisce. Les invités constatent que de petites choses font désordre et sont titillés par des actions questionnantes. L’absurde et l’insolite débarquent. Les convives deviennent spectateurs d’une hilarante soirée.
Leur devise : Si vous n’allez pas au spectacle, c’est le spectacle qui vient à vous!
