Thanksgiving update

Allcanuck Thanksgiving in Copenhagen – Monday, 19 October

October is upon us so that can only mean one thing – turkey!!

The Allcanuck Committee is happy to announce that for a fifth time we are arranging our traditional Thanksgiving pot-luck dinner! We have found a cosy venue in central Copenhagen that is easy to access and complete with a kitchen for cooking a turkey right on site. The date has been selected to avoid conflict with the autumn school holiday the week before – better slightly late than never! 

As in the past, you are invited to come out with your favorite side-dish or dessert to contribute to the pot-luck. The more to eat the merrier; it’s not Thanksgiving without leftovers!

Also, as usual, we are looking for a few lovely volunteers to join one of two important teams:
— Team Turkey – we need four or five turkey cooks to bring a cooked turkey (with stuffing if you want to show off!) so we have lots to share. As the entry fee covers the venue and the cost of turkey, cooks are reimbursed for their birds on the day.
— Team Tidy-up – we need a few people to help tidy up after dinner as we need to leave our awesome venue as clean as we found it!

The important details are as follows:
Date: Monday, 19 October
Time: Doors at 17:00, dinner from 18:30
Cost: 100 DKK per Adult, 75 DKK for Vegetarians and Children under 14
RSVP: By noon on Wednesday, 07 October

To reserve your space, please send me an email at djgirlfriday(at)hotmail.com, letting me know the number of guests, what dish(es) you would to bring if known, and if you are interested in being an all-star turkey cook or fabulous clean-up crew member!

RSVP is required by 07 October so that our butchers can order the best turkeys! Payment of the entry fee via bank transfer or Mobilepay will also be gratefully accepted.

Hope to see you there eh!

Pub night in Copenhagen, Fri. May 8

Bring yourself and your partner to our next pub night:

Friday, May 8
starting at 7 PM
at Cafe Globen
Turesensgade 2
Copenhagen 1368
( www.cafegloben.dk )

Directions:
From the Vesterport S-train station, walk north along Vester Farimagsgade. It turns into Norre Farimagsgade. Opposite Orsteds Parken, turn left onto Turesensgade. You will see a nice pub on the corner called Orsted – but don’t go into it – instead continue west along Turesensgade until you see the door for Cafe Globen (on the right side of the street). You can also reach this place by walking from Norreport S-train or Metro stations. If you become hopelessly lost or have any questions, call or text my mobile number, 5015 1275. It will be nice for me to say good-bye to everyone before I move away to Canada. We are allowed to bring food from outside into the Cafe Globen, and there are a few takeout restaurants in the area.

Allcanuck pub night in Copenhagen, Friday, Feb. 20

I hope many members can make it to our February pub night:

Friday, Feb. 20 starting at 7 PM

at Taphouse, Lavendelstraede 15, Copenhagen 1462 (half a block east of Copenhagen city hall, near the Grand movie theatre).

Canadians, friends and partners are welcome; there’s no need to RSVP. Join us on Friday at Taphouse (www.taphouse.dk) for some pre-weekend hygge, and Europe’s largest selection of draft beer in one place, in central Copenhagen! Send me a text or call at 5015 1275 if you can’t find us. Many thanks to Amanda Knoll for organizing this event!

Pub night in Copenhagen – Fri. Jan. 23

Our January pub night will be held in Copenhagen on Friday, January 23rd at Hviids Vinstue, Kongens Nytorv at Lille Kongensgade,
Copenhagen.
Start time: 7 PM
Canadians and partners are welcome. There’s no need to reserve. Give Brian a call at 5015 1275 if you can’t find us. It’s probably better if you have dinner before arriving. Many thanks to Amanda Knoll for organizing this event.

Pre-Christmas party, Saturday December 13

The Allcanuck club invites members, partners and children to an informal social evening at a member’s home.

WHEN: Saturday, December 13, starting at 7:30 PM.

WHERE: At a member’s home in Farum, just north of Copenhagen.

WHAT: A relaxing evening of drinks and conversation. Please bring beverages, and snacks to share with your fellow Canadians.

November pub night, Fri. Nov. 21

The club’s November pub night will happen on Friday, Nov. 21 starting at 7 PM. Come along (and bring your partner too) to Charlie Scott’s bar, Skindergade 43 (near Fiolstraede) in Copenhagen. If we are not sitting on the main floor, go upstairs to the first floor. The bar has a selection of drinks but not much in the way of food, so best to eat before-hand. It’s possible we will be treated to live jazz music later in the evening. Many thanks to Amanda Knoll for organizing this event! Give me or Amanda a call (5015 1275) if you can’t find us.

Certifying documents legally

The firm International Documents Canada ( www.idocscanada.ca ) which is based in Ottawa, provides legal authentication of Canadian documents. This allows people moving abroad to have their Canadian documents officially recognized in a foreign country. There’s more information on the company’s web site.

September pub night in Copenhagen

Our next Allcanuck pub night will be held on Friday, Sept. 12 starting at 5:30 PM. Let’s try a new venue:

Cafe Bopa
Bopa Plads – corner of Viborggade and Randersgade in Osterbro, Copenhagen.

To get there, take the S-train to Nordhavn and walk west on Hjorringgade. Or take the 1A bus and get off at Osterborggade and Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads. Call or send me a text (5015 1275) if you can’t find the group.

If the weather is nice, we can sit outside, or move indoors if not. The bar serves a range of drinks and food. Bring your partner and be ready to meet your fellow Canucks. No need to RSVP. See you then!
