Our Democrats Abroad, Madrid Chapter is celebrating its 12th Anniversary this weekend! Come join us on Saturday, June 11th at 8pm for an evening of tasty food, refreshing drinks, great company, and some top-quality entertainment! 

In addition to the anniversary celebration, we will also be giving our chapter president Ryan Turner a loving send-off, as he and his family will soon be moving to Milan. Ryan has been the driving force behind the Madrid chapter for several years, and we are sad to see him go -- but excited about what the future holds for him and his family. Come help us bid Ryan a hearty "Hasta luego!" 

The Open Mic Event is shaping up to be a great show, as usual -- we're really looking forward to hearing the vocal, musical, and comedic talents of our fellow Madrid democrats! Get in touch with Nicole Pearson if you're interested adding your act to the program (

Last year's wildly successful Silent Auction will be making a return -- so be ready to snag some treasures! We are still accepting donations, so feel free to contact Sarah Graves if you have an item or two to contribute (, or just bring them along to the party.

Entrance is €5, and includes a ticket for our raffle -- the prize is a Taste of America gift basket. Food and beverages will be priced from €2-4. You definitely won't want to miss the New Orleans Gumbo, the chicken legs, or any of the other mouth-watering surprises. For the best offer, consider the €20 special deal  -- it includes the entry price, food, 3 beverages, and a raffle ticket! All proceeds from the event will fund the Madrid Chapter and our ongoing efforts to get out the vote in November.

The venue is located within walking distance of metro stations Lavapiés (3), Embajadores (3), Atocha, and Atocha Cercanias. Parking is available in the lot on Ronda de Atocha between Calle Mallorca and Calle Argumosa, down the street from the Museo Reina Sofía.
