    November News from your DA Madrid Chapter

    Last month, we held our first event at our new venue, The Toast Taproom Malasaña.

    Old members and new friends alike gathered for a screening of Knock Down the House, the Netflix documentary that followed four women running for Congress in 2018, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

    In case you didn't get a chance to watch the movie with us, it's available on both Netflix and YouTube.


    On Wednesday, November 24th, DA Madrid is holding a Thanksgiving fundraiser at The Toast Taproom Malasaña, complete with dinner and cocktails.

    Location: The Toast Taproom Malasaña, C/ San Vicente Ferrer, 33
    Date & Time: Wednesday, November 24th. 
    Doors open at 19:30pm, dinner at 20h, cocktail hour at 21:30.
    Price: Dinner tickets are €45/person. Advance ticket purchase is required. RSVP by Monday, November 22nd.

    Come enjoy a full Thanksgiving spread—vegetarian option available on request—with unlimited beer or wine during the meal. Doors will open at 7:30pm, and dinner will go from 8:00pm until 9:30pm.

     

     

    If you cannot attend dinner, come to the cocktail hour at 9:30pm and socialize with fellow DA members and local friends. A portion of the proceeds from every mixed drink will be donated to Democrats Abroad Spain.

     

     

    Tickets for the dinner are €45 each and can be purchased at the following link: DA Madrid Thanksgiving Fundraiser. While all are welcome to join, tickets must be purchased by U.S. citizens in accordance with U.S. federal election law. Note that advance ticket purchase is required for dinner.

    We look forward to seeing you for dinner, cocktails, or both!
