German "Stammtisch"

Stammitsch"Stammtisch" is a German tradition in which friends gather at a local restaurant or pub (Kneipe) for libations and good discussion. If you go into a "Kneipe" or restaurant in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, you may well see a table with a sign that says "Stammtisch". Only the most honored and well-known patrons sit there. At Butler University we have our own weekly "Stammtisch" where old and new friends gather to chat in German, share the experiences of the day, try out their knowledge and relax. Come and join us for "Stammtisch".
