The first annual Weihnachten holiday party will be held in Rauchbier Platz on Thursday, December 14 from 8-9:30 PM New Britannia Time.
Rauchbier Platz is a POT nested in Central Brittany and Brittany Alleys; use the wagon at the main entrance of Brittany Alleys or the Snowy Biome wagon at the main entrance of Central Brittany to find Rauchbier Platz (or just friend Hannah Alpenglow to teleport). Detailed directions are on the Alpenglow Biergarten website linked at the bottom of this post.
Weihnachten festivals exist in many towns and cities in Germany around the holidays and have holiday themed vendors along with festive food and drink; a key festive drink is Glühwein, a warm spiced red wine drink.
Rauchbier Platz wants to bring a little bit of this across the rift to New Britannia, and has set up a holiday festival village just outside the city walls. Follow the snowmen to get to the festival grounds! There will be an ice bar, ice skating rink, warming huts, holiday vendors and of course, Glühwein.
During the event, there will be games to give away prizes such as COTOs, rare pets, rare deco items, and more. There will also be a raffle to win a Tax Free POT Village Deed - everyone who attends will get a raffle ticket from Hannah and the drawing will occur at the end of the event (you do not need to be present to win, so do not worry if you need to leave before the drawing).
As with Oktoberfest, this event will help support our friends at the AERIE Fund - Hannah will donate $10 on behalf of each avatar that attends, up to $500.
We look forward to seeing you at Rauchbier Platz Weihnachten 2017. And for those that attended Oktoberfest, yes, we will be playing "Wheat, Wurst, Bread" again (this time it will be "Wine, Wurst, Bread").
Hannah and Ulrich Alpenglow
