  1. Do you in this thread know about this other thread of boardgame meetups?    
  2. Have you tried this Board Game Café?  Might be worth a phone call.  https://boardgamecafe.de/en/203-2/?lang=en    Brettspielcafé ZamgwürfeltHelene Mayer Ring 1480809 München    
  3. Sounds good, I might turn up sometime!

  5. Laurin was great, we should go there more often.   Online register to vote in California: https://register.vote.org/?state=California   Rappy, thanks for reminding me about Pod Save America - I just listened to an episode that described effective strategies to get people to go vote. https://crooked.com/podcast-series/pod-save-america/ Volunteer phone banking is one, and the Democrats Abroad need volunteers -- as MunichMom pointed out, there are 10 million Americans living overseas and only 10% of them vote.  Let's activate some folks who want the world to be better!  https://www.democratsabroad.org/de_phone_bank_and_win - they even have prizes!
  6. Or all come to the 24 hour theatre festival at Pepper Theater -- Entity Theatre is putting it on, and the English-Speaking Music Ensembles will be watching.  Maybe you'd be interested in one of those groups?   https://wego.here.com/directions/mix//Pepper-Theater,-Thomas-Dehler-Stra%C3%9Fe-12,-81737-Munich:e-eyJuYW1lIjoiUGVwcGVyLVRoZWF0ZXIiLCJhZGRyZXNzIjoiVGhvbWFzLURlaGxlci1TdHJhXHUwMGRmZSAxMiwgODE3MzcgTXVuaWNoLCBHZXJtYW55IiwibGF0aXR1ZGUiOjQ4LjEwMDgxLCJsb25naXR1ZGUiOjExLjY0NTQ1LCJwcm92aWRlck5hbWUiOiJmYWNlYm9vayIsInByb3ZpZGVySWQiOjE4MzYwNDg2MTY1OTg3NX0=?map=48.10081,11.64545,15,normal&fb_locale=en_US     I'll be there and I can introduce you around.  
  7. Oops, I posted this with the wrong account.  The real post is over here: https://www.toytowngermany.com/forum/topic/380236-concert-sunday-9dec2018-1600-english-speaking-music-ensembles-ev-at-the-gasteig/ 
  8. I can only do Thursday, Sept. 20 that week.  BTW here's the latest book sale event:     And a thread that I closed out on back in 2010:   
  9. This year's sale is up: https://www.toytowngermany.com/forum/topic/380234-english-book-sale-for-charity-on-12oct2018-and-13oct2018/   
  10. Just a quick reminder to all that the huge Munich English Book Sale is coming right up: For those not familiar with this annual event, the sale will offer around 15,000 donated English-language books and DVDs at cheap prices. All proceeds go to fund our humanitarian work in Ilembula, Tanzania. In years past, we've funded projects such as: - The building of school kitchens with more efficient wood stoves to reduce deforestation and provide the students with a warm meal of porridge. - Health classes for 1500 students - The building of school latrines - Soccer balls with bells and Braille paper for he school for the blind - The building of an AIDS education center We're all volunteers and every cent we earn goes to support these projects. You can read about these projects and see pictures at: www.ilembula.de/aktion/annual-booksale Over half our books are priced at 2 Euro or less, so there will be plenty of bargains even on Saturday. You'll find hundreds of children's books as well, sorted by age group.   The English Book Sale this year is:   Friday Oct 12 from 3 to 7pm Saturday Oct 13 from 11am to 3pm   at the Ernst Mach Gymnasium, and the address is: Jagdfeldring 82 in 85540 Haar   which is a short walk from the Haar S-bahn stop. Signs will guide you there. If you drive, there's a parking lot and free on-street parking.   In our reader's lounge, you can enjoy homemade cake and a cup of coffee or tea while you chat or read. Hope to see you there :-)   Facebook event for adding to digital calendars: https://www.facebook.com/events/289087195012269/ Facebook page to follow for updates, including on the clearance sale that also happens once a year: https://www.facebook.com/englishbooksale/  Or send an email to english-book-sale@gmx.de to have your name added to the mailing list. @MunichMom has been helping with this event for many years and is the contact person for Toytowners.  We'd have never heard of this without her.

      They're actively posting again over there, might be fun?
  12. Mark your calendars, folks, ESME will perform again Dec. 9!  More details will follow!   Formerly known as the TT Orchestra and Singers, the English-Speaking Music Ensembles formed an Orchestra of 5 people at the end of 2008 and now have an orchestra of 45 people, a choir of 60 and a Big Band -- and we became an e.V. in 2011.   We usually play about 2 - 3 concerts a year. In 2010 we had our debut at the Gasteig. Yes, we're developing rapidly. But we're about *everyone* enjoying playing, no matter their standard or the last time they even looked at an instrument. We're also about having fun and enjoying a good social life! Rehearsals are all in English, and the Singers don't even need to know how to read music -- though you should be able to carry a tune...   We welcome new members at almost any time during the season.  http://www.esme-ev.de/join-us/ has current information on our open spots, and rehearsal times are at the bottom of that page.    Trombones for the Big Band? Double bass for the Orchestra? Tenors, basses for the Singers? Always welcome!
