    Explore the history of the Kaiserreich (German Empire or 2nd Reich) of Otto von Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm I & II from the ecstasy of unification (1871) to the agony of defeat at Versailles (1919). Examine the Kaiserreich as Kulturnation, the science, philosophy, music and literature that not only made this epoch so remarkable but portentous for the years which lie ahead. Study the geo-political chain of events which lead to tragic defeat in WWI and national humiliation at Versailles. An interesting, insightful, visually oriented Power Point presentation history will buffs enjoy.

    HASENPFEFFER •  Learn to make savory German style rabbit stew at the DANK Haus!
    Almost as much fun to say as it is to eat, Hasenpfeffer is an old “hasen” dish.
    The “pfeffer” refers in this case not just to black pepper, but a dish that is highly seasoned with herbs, juniper, allspice, cloves and such.

    Learn the secrets of this traditional German dish from chef and caterer Pete Simon.
    Hands-on instruction, generous samplings, a drink from the bar, recipes,
    and of course, our Gemutlichkeit and hospitality!

    Class fee includes a recipe, hands-on demonstration, one drink from the bar, generous tasting, and great camaraderie.
