    Potsdam Precinct November Meeting

    The Potsdam group of Democrats Abroad Berlin will be meeting on Sunday, November 17th, 2019, at 4pm at Loretta's Biergarten (Kronprinzessinnenweg 260, 14109 Berlin).

    It's just steps away from the S-Bahn Wannsee! The precinct captain David Knutson writes:

    "In less than 9 months the Democratic convention will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and in 12 months we will hopefully have a new president!

    WHO will be the Democratic candidate? Biden, Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg or maybe somebody else? Will the con-man in the White House be impeached? Will some of his cabinet go to jail?

    We want to know your predictions and how we can help the Party! We will store all your opinions and after the election see what predictions were best!"

    Bring friends and liberal-leaning folks! We're looking forward to seeing you all.

    Please RSVP to let us know you're coming and please help out by sharing this event on Facebook.

    November Political Pub Night - Buchhandlung Caffeteria

    Come join Democrats Abroad Berlin for our monthly political pub night at Buchhandlung Caffetteria Bar on Wednesday, November 20th, 2019.

    Cafe Buchhandlung is just around the corner from S Oranienburger Strasse (S1, S2, S25, S26) and not far from U Oranienburger Tor (U6), several tram lines, or U Weinmeisterstr. (U8). Stop by for the refreshing drinks and tasty snacks, stay for the the good company of fellow Democrats and progressives!

    Bring friends and liberal-leaning folks interested in drinking a beer with Berlin's best political group! We're looking forward to seeing you all.

    It's not required, but RSVP to let us know you're coming and please help out by sharing this event on Facebook.
