at DANK Haus German American Cultural Center

The DANK Haus is always full of programming that contributes to our mission as the cultural hub for German Americans in Chicago.

Our Stammtisch Open Haus, a social evening to connect those with an interest in German Chicago, is held the third Friday of every month. Also occurring on a regular basis is German Cinema Now, a chance to view current films from German-speaking lands (with English subtitles, of course) the fourth Friday of each month. Other events include monthly Kulturküche cooking classes, concerts and exhibits in our Fine Arts series, and special Cultural Events that bring the traditions of Germany to America.

On these pages you will find a sampling of our recurring and upcoming events. Subscribe to our event list for the most up to date information!

    Meet Maifest Grillmeister John and let him show you how to make a staple of German cuisine that everyone knows and loves: Chicken Schnitzel!

    Hallmarks of a good Schnitzel include very thin meat and a thin crisp coating. While the Austrians insists that a proper "Wiener Schnitzel" has to be made from veal, Germans often use pork or chicken. Traditionally served with cranberry jam and warm potato salad, Schnitzel can also come with a simple bed of greens and a lemon for squeezing onto the meat just before eating. We will be making ours with roasted vegetables!

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