On Friday, Jan. 21, the Honeywell House will host a German dinner to honor area benefactor Mark Honeywell’s birthday while celebrating the German heritage of the area, according to public relations specialist Michele DeVinney.

A German meal – to include Alsatian onion and apple soup; pork Rahmschnitzel; roasted asparagus; spätzle; and black forest cake – will be followed by music, a trivia contest, an unusual spelling contest, and a Masskrugstemmen challenge, “a traditional Bavarian contest of strength, where participants hold a full stein for as long as possible.”
