Hello again and a specially warm welcome to our new readers! Last week we shared our blog with Munich International Friends on Facebook, and the positive reactions gave us a nice confidence boost. Let's face it - we do want kudos for our work and feel very happy when we get some.

Speaking about Munich International Friends - 11K people in the Facebook group is quite a number, so if you are not among them you should hurry and maybe get to know some of the active members at the Round Table on Wednesday.

Here is what else is on in Munich next week.

Monday, 10 February:
MOLLY WANTS TO KNOW: Mondays are tough, there's no arguing about it. On the plus side, Monday is Pub Quiz Night at Molly Mallone's. A fresh Guinness, a good laugh with friends and some entertainment answering quiz questions (in German or English) - what better way to bring the tough day to a close! Starts at 8.30pm.

Tuesday, 11 February:
JAZZ JAM SESSION: Students and teachers from the Neue Jazzschool München will be jamming at Pasinger Fabrik from 7.30pm. This is a monthly free event and a chance to discover new talents, show your own (everybody is invited to participate) or simply fall back into your chair with a well-earned after-work beer and listen to young musicians enjoying themselves and their music

Wednesday, 12 February:
MEET-UPS: Munich International Friends invite to their weekly Round Table in the Euro Youth Hostel at Hauptbahnhof (Senefelderstraße 5) from 7pm. They also organise plenty of other events like ski trips for beginners or advanced skiers, trips to Neuschwanstein, visits to museums, etc. Check out the full programme here.

OPERA LIVESTREAM: For all opera fans out there - Cinema Muenchen is streaming Don Giovanni live from the Royal Opera House in London. The production is supposed to be quite spectacular, and even though it's not quite like seeing it live, it's as close as you can get without actually being at the ROH in London. The show is almost 4 hours, the length of two movies, which means that unfortunately tickets aren't cheap. Tickets 30€. Starts at 7.45pm.

Thursday, 13 February
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Haus der kleinen Künste is one of those shops that try to make a difference. It offers a stage to young creative fashion and design artists who share the shop's philosophy of fair and sustainable production. It also literally offers a stage to theatre artists in the "Keller der kleinen Künste". Today, the shop celebrates its 7th Birthday with a surprise programme for its friends. Starts at 7pm, free entry.

Friday, 14 February:
GUIDED TOUR: Something you wouldn't expect in this city - a tour to the underground world: München unterirdisch und extravagant, with Martin Schmidt-Bredow. Meeting point: Mariensäule, starts at 2pm.

Saturday, 15 February:
OPERA FLEA MARKET: Always wanted to dress like the Queen of the Night or Papageno from The Magic Flute? Fancy buying some weird and extraordinary costumes? Bayerische Staatsoper is giving away some of their unique items at Kostümverkauf in their rehearsal hall at Marstallplatz. Free entry. From 10am to 3pm.

Sunday, 16 February:
LITERATURE & MUSIC: Seidvilla is hosting a literary matinee where Asta Scheib will be reading from Herbert Rosendorfer's book "Martha. Von einem schadhaften Leben". Tickets 8/6€. The reading is followed by "Coffee for four..." programme with a concert of a ladies-a-capella choir which will be singing hits from film classics. Starts at 2pm.

LITERARY SCHWABING: Yes, that's right, another guided tour. If you're not particularly familiar with cultural, historical and literary heritage of Schwabing, we highly recommend a tour like Maxvorstadt-Safari with the author Martin Arz, who will take you to Munich's bohemian past and its history, visiting the house of Thomas Mann, Kandinsky and such addresses as Cafe Simplicissimus. Tickets 10€. Meeting point: Adalbertstr. on the corner of the university. From 10am to 12.30.
