Additional photos emerge from Nazi-themed dinner [PHOTOS]
Yesterday, Hot Dish posted a photo of men dressed in SS uniforms and surrounded by Nazi flags at Gasthof's German restaurant in northeast Minneapolis. Last night, more photos from the event surfaced.
A Reddit user commenting on a thread about the Nazi-themed dinner party held at Gasthof's shared additional photos of the event.
The user, "trrpsl," first posted the group photo above, which shows the same scene depicted in the initial photo on a larger scale. The picture is blurry, but clearly shows four Nazi flags and an Austrian flag draped on Gasthof's walls.
Two hours later, "trrpsl" posted another photo (below) in response to a user who asked to see the party from another angle, since a number of City Pages commenters were claiming that members of re-enactment groups portraying Allied powers were also present.
City Pages received the initial photo from an anonymous reader who says a friend sent it to him.
According to Jon Boorom, a WWII re-enactor, the photo was taken at an annual Christmas party that has been celebrated by local German re-enactment groups for the past 16 years, but only at Gasthof's for the past six.
Mario Pierzchalski, the owner of Gasthof's, has declined to speak about the incident.
