While walking around Nieuwmarkt, I saw a large crowd gathered in front of a store named Ijssalon Tufani. I saw that everyone was eating gelato (hence the ijssalon decription), and since no one stuck out as an obvious tourist I guessed that this was a local secret. I tried out a couple flavors: black current and hazelnut--very flavorful, and it hit the spot on a day that was pushing 27 degrees.
That night I watched the Germany v Costa Rica match at Stone's Cafe in the RLD. It was an exciting match, finishing 4-2 to Germany, and the whole crowd was into it. It was the first time I had seen a World Cup match while overseas, and the enthusiasm I witnessed makes me eagerly anticipate seeing a game live in Germany.
