A Movie & Stamppot Dinner – A Dutch tradition!

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

Again, we are fully booked for this event! We are overwhelmed by your interest, but unfortunately only have limited seats available. Still we hope to see you next month of at any of our other events to come!!

We would like to invite you to our regular monthly meeting of International Café on Saturday, March 28, 2015. This time we will prepare traditional Dutch dish, stamppot! This is a warm, satisfying mixture of potatoes and vegetables, usually served with sausage. You should try it at least once before you leave Groningen. 🙂 There will also be plenty of time for games and conversation!

The Movie

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
: Oskar is convinced that his father, who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can’t be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father’s closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him beyond his own loss to a greater understanding of the observable world around him. (Warner Bros. Pictures)
