Netzwerk Philadelphia’s Weihnachtsparty/Christmasfest III: Naughty vs. Nice — Dec. 1

Looking to get into the Christmas spirit a bit early this year? Come join us at the Netzwerk Philadelphia’s Weihnachtsparty/Christmasfest.


The fun begins at 8:00pm on Saturday, December 1 and takes place on the 25th floor of the Residence Inn by Marriott, with a dramatic view of Philadelphia’s historic City Hall.

These will include Gluehwein, beer, wine, soft drinks, light German and American foods and seasonal desserts served in a festively decorated room overlooking Philadelphia’s City Hall Tower.

Last year we had over 100 participants, good music, great dancing later in the evening and into the early hours of the morning. There were also reindeer antlers in great number and a good time was had by just about everyone. Pictures from 2006

Tickets are $25/person, $20/students, au pairs, and college-aged Freiwilliger. Food and drink are included in the ticket price. An RSVP and pre-payment are strongly encouraged: tickets at the door will cost an additional $5.

An on-line RSVP is required for this event if you plan to attend. Fortunately, it’s very easy to do! If you are registered member of Netzwerk Central PA, go to Netzwerk Philadelphia’s Weihnachtsparty/Christmasfest III: Naughty vs. Nice log in under your profile, select “yes” in the RSVP box, and click “submit”. If you are a registered member of Netzwerk Central PA, but have problems logging in, contact me by e-mail at If you are not a member of Netzwerk Central PA or Philadelphia, you can RSVP by contacting me as well.

Payment ahead of time is strongly encouraged! Tickets at the door will cost an additional $5.

To purchase you ticket(s) online with a credit or debit card, click on the PayPal link on the RSVP page and follow the instructions. You can pay Mark McGuigan in person with cash or check at any Stammtisch or Kaffeetreff event prior to the 1. December, or you can send a check (no cash through the mail please!) to Mark at (contact me for the address). Checks should be made payable to Mark McGuigan. You can also RSVP and pay at the door (cash and checks only). See below.

Naturally, we don’t want to turn anyone away, and so we will also sell tickets at the door – but they will cost $5 above the pre-party sale price. We will honor the pre-party ticket price at the door for members who have RSVP’d on-line (or for non-members, by e-mail) no later than Thursday November 29.

Paid reservations can be cancelled and refunded in full, if a refund request is received by November 29. We won’t be able to refund cancellations after that date.

I know you all appreciate the reasons for this – several members will be purchasing food, drink, and decorations, a day or two prior to the party, and there is a rental fee for the room. We need to know ahead of time how much food and drink to buy and feel certain that no one will get stuck covering party costs from his own pocket. So, many thanks ahead of time for your cooperation. Those who don’t cooperate will be turned over to Santa’s elves for questioning.

Lot’s O’Coes

It’s been a few weeks since Gen and Dan’s wedding. I think everyone has fully recovered… I hope. 😉

It was a bit wet and cold and a few people a little role down the hill, but I think everyone had a great time. I think someone recommended that the tuxes should come with cleats instead of the plastic shoes.

After the reception everyone ended up going back to the hotel bar and had a great time too. I think the best quote was from the band in the bar. “That wedding party is RIPPED!” It’s amazing I think we were all fine until we got to the bar. Then it went down hill from there. Fast!
I think Dan will be putting up more pics on there website so everyone can see the festivities.
