Hello folks, how are you all doing?
We hope you are surviving what seems to be an extended winter, it seems unusual to have to endure such cold weather for so long. However a quick check of a calender or Google will tell you the spring season officially starts March 20th 2013, so between now and next week Wednesday the winter season has the freedom to be as cold & awkward as it wishes
Despite the wintry scene around us, if you have arrived in Düsseldorf or found our group recently we would like to give you a warm welcome! Thank you for joining us, through our events we hope we can help you find friends from Germany as well as from the many nations that have made Düsseldorf and surrounding cities their home.
Many thanks to all of you who came to the February Expat Meetup and contributed to the lively atmosphere! If it was your first event we hoped it helped you meet people and find friends in Düsseldorf's large international community. If you are regular member, thank you very much for your continued support and we really appreciate your contribution to these events!
The March Expat Meetup is one week away, whether you are a new member or regular we hope you will be able to join us. As always the meetup will be at O'Reilly's Irish Bar on Thursday 21st March 2013, following the tradition we have followed for nearly 7 years of hosting meetups on the third Thursday of every month. We meet on the top floor of O'Reilly's by the bar and often due to our large size we take over the whole floor and downstairs as well - you will have no trouble spotting us If you do need to help the staff at O'Reilly's are very helpful and will be glad to assist.
To take part is easy - just get a drink and introduce yourself to anyone in the meetup group! If this is your first time and you need help please feel free to introduce yourself to any of the organizers - Babette, Bart, Caro, Eric, Mark, Dinesh - we will be happy to assist in anyway we can. Everyone remembers their first few weeks in a new country and city so we hope we can help you feel at home here!
Whether you are new to Germany, new to Düsseldorf or wish to meet international people from diverse backgrounds then please feel free to join us! Wish you all a great week & weekend, look forward to seeing you next Thursday on hopefully a warmer second offical day of Spring 2013
All the best, Düsseldorf Expat Meetup team
