Running Dinner X – The Report

The running dinner is clearly one of the highlights of each semester. You won’t get a better chance to meet open minded students studying various subjects on one evening. Since the whole group changes for every dish, you can be lucky and meet up to twelve new people on this evening. We started at Jürgen’s place and I prepared the pineapple and strawberries for our dessert. From there it was only a five minutes drive by bike to reach our hors d’oeuvre location. We were welcomed by two nice girls who had a veggie soup prepared. A few minutes later an old study colleague and a friend of his arrived to complete our hors d’oeuvre group. Jonas had a lot to talk about his holiday in India, and the discussion was a little one sided.

To reach our main dish location we only had a few meters. A main dish at the student apartments Pestheim is always something special. Since the rooms are quite small and don’t have a real kitchen it is quite an experiment to cook something there for six people. However our host managed to cook some nice pepper in small ovens, and the bed was rearranged to serve as two seats. A few minutes later the dinner the proved to be a real premier: I’d never been to a running dinner, were there was a group which only consisted of boys. This wasn’t our only common thing. All of us were studying a business related subject for at least three years.. A less homogeneous group might have been more interesting. But since the dish was nice, the Bulgarian red wine delicious, and the Becherovka good stuff we got to enjoy ourselves nevertheless.

Dessert was Jürgen’s and my turn. The time it took for the final preparations was underestimated a little bit by me. So I spent quite some time at the kitchen.. I also managed to ruin the crème.. so it was only yogurt with fresh fruits and flaky pastry we had to offer for our guests – but wait. The B52s were part of the dessert ;-). Somehow our guests almost missed each other, one couple arrived one hour late and the other one had to leave early.. But we had one chance to have a toast together.

The party was a great meet an great afterwards, I met a lot of people and even was dancing. If you want to get some impressions, have a look at the pictures from here.
