This annual Cornell beer garden “get-together” in Munich will take place in the Hirschgarten on Thursday July, 28, 2011, any time after 6:30 p.m., (www.hirschgarten.de)  Directions and parking are also given in the English version.  It gives the S-Bahn directions as well – it is important that the correct stop is “Laim” and not “Hirschgarten” !  We have had such bad luck with the weather these past few years, that Deloyce and Klaus will reserve a table either under an awning, or indoors.  The reservation is under the name “Cornell-Conrad.”
