    I saw an amazing exhibit by Michaël Borremans exhibition @ Bozar (right behind the central station) when I was in Brussels (Sipang recommended it). The venue was great, you should see if they have anything interesting showing at the moment.

    Brussels related for hennree:
    Visited my girlfriend while she was interning in Brussels this summer. I don't remember much specifically restaurant wise because I was just in for a weekend and only know a bit of French, but I remember there being a lot of cool restaurants and bars in the Saint-Gilles district.

    Also had a blast Museum van Elsene (Musée D'Ixelles). I would look into what they're showing.


    Clothing Related:
    I bought a uni t-shirt from the school I did a short exchange at in Tokyo made by Champion Japan and it's incredibly soft. Does anyone know where I can buy blanks online?

    @hennree It's a few years since I've visited, but seriously fries/chips and local mayonnaise from a van were probably one of the best takeaways I've ever eaten - unbelievably simple, but they've just got the knack. Restaurants were from memory generally quite pricey compared to France, but with very similar menus - seafood was very good. Obviously waffles are a must try whilst you're over there, and Brussels is renowned for it's chocolate. I can't remember specific restaurants to recommend, but like London (and probably most cities) if you head a street or two away from the main tourist drags you'll get better food, and at a better price. There are plenty of small bistros down side alleys.

    EU VAT refund is such a sham. You get back 12% (not 18%), it was promised in 3-5 days but it took about a month to get the refund (and still counting for some), and the rate for the currency back is terrible (another 5-6% against you).
    But it was not as bad as the ridiculous rate offered by money exchange booths in France and Italy. ~€65 for $100 (market exchange rate was €1 = $1.06).

    NMWA actually does MTOs once a season or so with Inis, and you can order whatever color you want. Obviously not helpful right now, but for future reference
