Dönerstag began in 2007 when German cachers met at kebab shops around the country all at the same time. Since then, the tradition has caught on around the world!
These special events are held each year on a Thursday. In German, this makes the name “Dönerstag” a pun: The German word for Thursday is “Donnerstag.” Kebab translates to “Döner.”
On Thursday, April 13, players will gather to celebrate the 11th annual Dönerstag. You can earn the first-ever Dönerstag souvenir by attending a geocaching event on that day.
This lunch-time event will take place from 12 Noon until 1PM, when I need to get back to the office. In the meantime, I will be at the outdoor plaza area near the SE corner of 53rd and Park wearing my blue and white NEW MARKET MALLERS shirt. Come on down and sign the log, say hello and maybe exchange a few trackables. Plus, for anyone who is interested, there is a place across the street where you can get a kebab or something for lunch if you want.
