WELTMEISTER - WORLD CHAMPIONS!

world cupSunday, July 13th was E P I C !!!! We hosted over 800 Germany fans for the World Cup Finals against Argentina and we would like to thank every single one for contributing to the AMAZING atmosphere.

We were amazed by the amount of support from people who came out and wanted to celebrate the World Cup. We understand that the line was long and not everyone was able to join us, but we were at capacity and had to stick with the Chicago fire code. The safety of our guests was our #1 priority.

We also would like to acknowledge and thank all our volunteers! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Please come back and continue the celebrations every 3rd Friday at Stammtisch!

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!
