April 17, 2014 This year marks the first time in 124 years that the Kingdom of the Netherlands will celebrate a King's Day! The perfect occasion to do things a bit differently. The Dutch Club of Chicago, jointly with the Netherlands Consulate General in Chicago, will host a typical Dutch party on the evening of Saturday, April 26th. The Irish like to do it green but the Dutch do it orange. Curious to know what the difference is? Then plan on coming, because we'd love for you to experience the traditional way we celebrate this event as we treat you to some of our special Dutch snacks, culture, music, etc. Saturday, April 26th, 8 PM till late, Goose Island Brewpub Wrigleyville, 3535 N. Clark Street, Chicago. To register, just go to Dress code: the more orange you wear, the better!

March 25, 2014 The world is becoming a safer place. During the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS 2014) in The Hague, 58 world leaders made concrete agreements to prevent terrorists getting their hands on nuclear material that could be used to make a nuclear weapon. This will further reduce the threat of a nuclear attack.
