Raise a toast to Präsident Obama! January 20, 2009 12:12 AM   Subscribe

Wir feiern Obama in Berlin! Come join us.

Hi Berliners! I'm gathering with some friends at an as-yet-unnamed bar in Neukölln to celebrate the inauguration. No jumbotron, but live internet transmission and a Bush pinata!

Things get started around 16:00 Uhr at Schoenleinstrasse 6
(U-Bahn 8, Schoenleinstrasse Station).

I have to work in the afternoon, but there's a decent chance Mrs. YTMS and I would be up for joining in afterwards -- will you post updates to this thread if the venue changes later?

I'd love to see both members of the Your Time Machine Sucks household! If by chance there's a change of venue (if, for example, there's a problem with the transmission) I won't have email handy, but could you Mefi mail me your number and I can text you?

I'd be there but I'm battling whatever virus has been kicking the butt of (almost literally every single person I know in) Berlin.

(I hope Mrs. YTMS has avoided this as it seems to be propagating through the schools; all but two kids from our kids' kindergarten were out sick Monday...)

Didn't we already do this last summer?

Kidding -- have fun!

Actually gnfti, I'm going to a similar thing in The Hague with supposedly a lot of US expats. Want to come?

Ack, I stayed home and watched it on TV -- didn't see this until just now. Thanks for the heads-up though, jouke.

OK, I think I'm going to throw in the towel and admit that I'm too tired to go out -- sorry foxy_hedgehog! Happy Obamaday trotzdem.

I guess I'll be there after 10pm, hope to see some of you there...
