    El Disbarat in Barcelona, Spain

    Insights into Ukraine, with Harry Edelman

    Please join us for dinner (or drinks and appetizers) at El Disbarat for an evening of insights from DA BCN's very own Harry Edelman, who spent quite a bit of time last year in Ukraine (a country that is in the news quite a lot these days). 

    Harry participated as a part of three U.S. delegations to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) for election observation missions in Ukraine throughout 2019.

    He observed during the first round of the 2019 Ukrainian Presidential Election on 31 March in the city of Dnipro. Again, in the second round on 21 April in Kiev Oblast. And for a third time in Mykolaiv Oblast during the snap 2019 Parliamentary elections on 21 July. 
    His talk will include a discussion on the OSCE, their mission and their findings, as well as a bit of context for the Ukrainian elections and what these elections means for the future of the country and the region.
    Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly. We will be ordering off the menu, so arrive no later than 7:30 to place your order. Harry's presentation will begin at 8:00.

    About Sommelier Steph

    After devoting 17 years to emergency and critical care veterinary nursing, Steph decided to leave medicine and turn her much loved wine hobby into a second career. She began working at a Finger Lakes winery where she immersed herself in every aspect of wine making: vineyard experience, harvest and crush, and the tasting room where she honed her skills in food and wine pairing. While working in the winery, she joined a company which provided small, semi-private, educational wine tours within the FLX region. Within this time she also became beverage manager and wine captain of a high-end catering company, where she was able to continue her work with local winemakers in putting together tasting menus for private events.

    She obtained her sommelier training through The Court of Master Sommeliers and is a member of the Guild of Sommeliers. She is currently a member of the sommelier team at Les Trois Rois, a 5-star hotel in Basel, where she serves as the bar sommelier and bar supervisor.

    She lives in Muttenz with her husband Richard, her dog Gracie, and her super adorable kitty Ophelia.

    Pankower Adventsmarkt in Berlin, Germany

    Kiez Adventsmarkt – Pankow

    There are 60 Christmas markets in Berlin: have you been to all of them? This weekend market only lasts two days, so Pankow locals (or anyone else!), let's check it out! Plan on looking at handmade crafts and warming up with a hot chocolate or mulled wine.

    Meeting point: entrance to the Heynhöfe on Heynstr.

    This is the first Kiez meeting in Pankow, so come to meet your neighbors.

    Berlin's a big place, so Democrats Abroad Kiez Captains are helping to bring together Americans, get out the vote, and organize in different neighborhoods. These Kiez meetups are intended for people who live or work in the area. Don't see one for your neighborhood yet? Get in touch: chair@demsinberlin.de

    RSVP

    It's not required, but RSVP so we have a rough idea of how many people to expect.

    You can help out by sharing this event with your American friends and acquaintances in Berlin! As always, we welcome new faces, even if you've never attended a meeting or an event before.
