Just a quick reminder about our first Stammtisch of the year, which will take place on Monday, 21 March at the Mansion House in Jesmond.
The evening will start at 6.30pm with a presentation by David Faulkner, the leader of Newcastle City Council, about the Ruhr Capital of Culture. Gunther then has a Linseneintopf mit Bockwurst (lentil stew) ready, which will be £7.95 per person.
Please let me know if you’re coming – payment for the dinner will be again on the night.
On Tuesday, 10 May, we will take the Stammtisch south of the river to Sunderland. Stammtisch member Ralph Sälzer, who has been in charge of the Liebherr manufacturing facility for the past nine years, has invited us to a factory visit. Liebherr, a wholly family owned business, produces marine cranes for a worldwide market and employs around 200 staff at the Sunderland facility.
Afterwards we will head to TJ Doyles, an Irish pub just next door, which has Schnitzel and various Austrian/German beers on the menu. We will meet at 6pm for the factory visit, followed by dinner at the pub from around 7pm.
In June, the Mansion House will then host our next Stammtisch on Tuesday, 21, which will include a talk about wine, some samples plus German food. More details will follow in due course.
