    Dinner & Drawing: Nürnberg Postcard Coloring Meetup

    Want to help save democracy? Perhaps meet some like-minded Americans in the Nürnberg area? Maybe while flexing your artistic abilities and munching on tacos at one of Nürnberg's spiciest places to hang out?

    Well then, we've got the event for you!

    We're holding a meetup for volunteers to help color our Get Out the Vote postcards. The postcards will be mailed to DA members in January as a reminder to request a 2022 ballot, kicking off our midterm GOTV efforts.

    RSVPs are great and help us plan and bring enough supplies, but it isn't absolutely necessary. Even if you only have a bit of time, stop in, knock out a postcard and say hello! Please remember to bring your 3G (tested/vaccinated/recovered) proof!

    Contact Dawn Ehrhart for any further details if necessary.

    Oktoberfest Celebration: Online Beer Tasting

    Despite Oktoberfest being cancelled again this year, Democrats Abroad Germany has just the thing for you to celebrate: an online beer tasting!

    DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, October 30th at 7pm CEST for the 13th Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! Instead of meeting in our usually reserved gallery seats, we will meet online from the comforts of our home for an online beer tasting.

    Our online Oktoberfest ticket (€46) includes:

    • 5 beers 
    • 1 tasting glass
    • Professional moderation and guidance during the tasting in English from Vagabund Brauerei

    The tasting will last approximately 1-1.5 hours. The beer and glass will be sent to you prior to the event from the tasting company. These tasting packages can only be sent to addresses in Germany and EU member states. We encourage other country committees to join in on the fun, but please note that if your shipping address is outside of Germany, ticket costs are €51 (an additional €5 is added to the ticket price to account for shipping costs).

    To reserve your tickets, you must complete this registration form (click here to open the form). In order to receive the beer kits in time, you must RSVP by October 11, 2021. The tasting will be held on Zoom and we will send participants the meeting log-in information 48 hours before the event.

    **Please remember that Democrats Abroad may only accept donations from U.S. citizens.**

    An Oktoberfest Prize Draw will also take place throughout the two Oktoberfest events. Click here for more information.

    Saxony Book Club: "When Nietzsche Wept" by Irvin D. Yalom

    Join DA Saxony in Halle on December 12 at 3:00 p.m. as we discuss the novel As Nietzsche Wept by Irvin D. Yalom. 

    In 19th-century Vienna, a drama of love, fate, and will is played out amid the intellectual ferment that defined the era.

    Josef Breuer, one of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis, is at the height of his career. Friedrich Nietzsche, Europe's greatest philosopher, is on the brink of suicidal despair, unable to find a cure for the headaches and other ailments that plague him. When he agrees to treat Nietzsche with his experimental "talking cure," Breuer never expects that he, too, will find solace in their sessions. Only through facing his own inner demons can the gifted healer begin to help his patient.

    In When Nietzsche Wept, Irvin Yalom blends fact and fiction, atmosphere and suspense to unfold an unforgettable story about the redemptive power of friendship. – Goodreads.com 

    After the book discussion, we'll head over to the Halle Weihnachtsmarkt to share a Glühwein and get into the holiday spirit together.  

    All are welcome to join, even if you don't get a chance to read the book! RSVP to let us know you'll be there.
