The new Haus is open! The flag raising and ribbon cutting ceremony took place at 1:30pm on Sunday, November 18, which just happens to be the exact day of the 90th Anniversary of Deutsches Haus!
There was a big crowd to celebrate Trivia Night. Friday July 27 was the last event of any sort at the Metairie Haus which is closing as the final preparations for the move to the New Orleans Haus are underway. There will be a pause in events until Oktoberfest. When the new Haus opens in the autumn, Trivia Nights will resume.
Verses in many languages extol the joys of singing around a glass of beer. The Beer Choir, a new national organization with nearly 20 chapters — now including one in New Orleans — wants to revive that tradition by compiling those songs and giving them a public airing.
The New Orleans Chapter of the Beer Choir (mission: “To make our world a little bit better by singing and drinking together!”) hosts its premiere event Friday at the Deutsches Haus in Metairie.
