Thank you no me bre! We just watched part of the movie on YouTube.
Your post about "Den Film" caused my husband to get VERY animated in telling me about the watching of the film during the yearly "Nikolaus Party" in his college town of Göttingen.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rleBJFaAlUE
The Göttingen symphony plays, 20,000+ people from all over the country participate, drinking wine from test tubes, singing along, speaking many of the lines of the movies along with the actors, many, many Feuerzangenbowlen to drink from. No wonder his memories about the specific FOOD that was served are a bit sketchy!!
And thank you Braunbärin and Lady Grey for the food tips. We are writing down a shopping list. The party will indeed be after New Year's Eve, because so much gets jammed into the weekends of December and we want everybody to get to see our German Feuerzangenbowle. Our California friends are very curious about it. :)
