|No, it's not Independence Day! |
Let's go to the party and enjoy great Belgian beers,
but let's also demand a more historically accurate poster
for next year's party
"Dear Pizzeria Paradiso (Old Town): July 21st is Belgian National Day, NOT Belgian Independence Day as your poster implies. Love your All-Belgian draft lineup and will continue to love all three Paradiso locations, but would appreciate some attention to the historical facts in future posters. Belgium had gained independence from the Netherlands a year before their constitutional monarchy was adopted on this day in 1831."
Here are some links to previous PhilosFX posts which contain more information about Nationale Feestdag Belgique, or Belgian National Day.
