Stammtisch pages updated

Finally got around to some page updates. Some general updates on the Stammtische page and added information for the new East Valley Free Software Stammtisch.

The East Valley Free Software Stammtisch moved to Iguana Macks a couple of months ago. After having met in Tempe for over a decade, we moved a few miles east to Mesa. It's a good location and we've mostly had a good turnout. Sorry about December Brian :).

Weimarer Musik

Heard an audio story about Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester. Not going to make it over to Santa Fe for the concert.

Feuerzangenbowle 2007

Due to plumbing issues we will not be showing the film this year. Ja, ja, ich weiß, "Wir haben aber keine Bauarbeit." Well, believe me, we have some Umbauarbeit.

All is not lost. AC4GC has invited me to make Feuerzangenbowle at their Christmas party. The party includes kids, so if you bring some please also bring gifts for the Weihnachtsmann's bag. He'll be there around 18:30.

The first Bowle will be lit up right around party kickoff at 17:30. Depending on demand, more might be made.

Medieval FDA and 500 year old bratwust recipe

An amateur historian found a nearly 600 year old bratwurst recipe. Apparently the 1432 guidelines indicate quality requirements and fines if they aren't met. Wonder if the medieval testing meant everyone on the inspection committee got a free bratwurst.
