Sonny, yesterday my life was filled with rain

Picture the scene:
You've recently arrived in Amsterdam, it's nearly 10pm and you're very hungry, so you've headed out to an independent falafel place which has a good review on Happy Cow. You've checked the place's own website and it doesn't close until 11pm, so you have more than an hour until it closes. Great!
Now imagine your disappointment when the owner gruffly waves you away saying his kitchen is closed and he's not serving any more. Did you mis-read the website? No, he's just decided to knock off early.
Never mind, you can just nip next door to grab a burger, or some lasagne, right? Only you can't, because you're vegetarian or vegan and therefore have to be a bit more choosy about where you eat.
So, stomach rumbling, you get back on your bike and head back to the hotel to research somewhere else to eat...
Sonny: if your website advertises opening until 2300 then you should stick to those hours, okay? If you must close early, do it with a smile and an apology, not arrogance.
closes early without warning
