Fourth-Place Medal

RIO DE JANEIRO – Brazil has some very beautiful people. This is not only an observation, but a fact.

So what does it say that Holland House, the Heineken-sponsored Olympic party zone, actually had even more beautiful people shipped in from the Netherlands to work and mingle at their Rio site?

Holland House has been attracting crowds at the Olympics since 1994, as one of the first National Organizing Committee houses to go public. Tickets are roughly $50, and that just gets you in the door – all the burgers, beer and gear will cost you more.
