I am very proud to announce that the Consul General of the United States Consulate in Munich, Conrad Tribble and his family will visit us at the Waldwirtschaft on the 4th of July and celebrate with us. This is a special honor for us because amoung his many other engagements on this day, he is making a special trip out to Großhesselohe just to be with us. He plans to stay from approx. 12.30 pm to about 2 pm, so if you want to greet and chat with him, please come early.
Tesla Motors will be present with not just one but two electrically driven sport cars for our viewing pleasure. Last year Daimler bought into the company and owns about 10% of Tesla. This year Toyota has also invested heavily in Tesla Motors. Tesla Motors just recently had a very successful IPO, and in just one day gained a stock value of over 250 million dollars on the New York Stock Exchange and is constantly gaining in value. Come, see and get informed about the future of driving. Youi don't want to miss this!
I also want to thank my co-organizer, John Savee and his group "Business and Friends" for helping to get the word out about our celebratrion.
See you on Sunday.
4th July Party (Independence Day) at the Waldwirtschaft
Big combined party
The California Association of Germany, the Columbus Kommunikationskreis and the German American Business Association (GABA California) are jointly organizing a big Independence Day celebration at the Waldwirtschaft in Großhesselohe.
The Waldwirtschaft in Großhesselohe is one of the finest beer gardens that Munich has to offer and has offered us 400 reserved seats and will put up special tents for us in the beer garden in case of bad weather. As you enter the beer garden the reserved tables will be on the far left of the beer garden where we can have a great view of the Isar river. Just look for the American, Californian and Bavarian flags.
The band playing for the day is Marlis' Swing Connection.
I have heard them, and they play a large selection of songs from Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter as well as songs from Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and other jazz greats.
They also play a large selection of pop songs. Please take a look at their website.
There will be plenty of parking spaces at the Waldwirtschaft,
but travelling by bicycle is the best way to get there because the Waldwirtshaft is situated right next to the Isar river.
If you take the S7 S-Bahn the stop is Isartalbahnhof-Großhesselohe. From there it is about a 15 minute walk.
There is a children's playground equipped with a trampoline, Schiffsschaukel and mini train.
There is a small charge for the use. Also, a minigolf course is available.
