Axe Throwing, Archery & Hurling other Things of Danger

Host: Risto 'The Axe Whisperer' Welling

It has become a show defining event. Yes, we really do stuff like that. But you have to carry the heavy burden of responsibility for your own safety. We are mad but not stupid. Risto 'The Axe Whisperer' Welling will instruct and train you again in traditional axe throwing, archery and probably other dangerous things that promise potential to fly. Advanced learners are welcome back to check if their Experiences rolls have panned out. Only sober adults are allowed to participate, of course. Hang-overs are probably okay.

Risto on target!
Risto’s secret is the trust he places in his students.


German Beer Tasting Part III*

Biermeister: Lisa Eisenbarth & Fabian Küchler

It also didn't get boring last year (very strange) so here we go again. More beer, different beer, only from Germany. Surprise: We still have not run out of new German beers to sample. May the best beer win.

*It's all your fault, Heija.

Sandy's Movie Nights

Hosts: Sandy Petersen

Sandy will show movies from his bottomless DVD collection* at THE KRAKEN. He will bring 5 new treasures. Every night there will be a blind drawing by a poor victim in the audience to decide which film will be screened. Or we just watch Daniel der Zauberer again.

*It contains mostly scary Horror movies, funny Horror movies, weird Horror movies, Classics (by Sandy's definition), Must-Sees and things you never heard of. Oh yes, and unimaginably bad movies.

Sandy's Movie Nights 2017
Every time a special treat: handpicked movies by Sandy Petersen randomly chosen by the audience.
