Sonntagsbraten

Haven’t made it to Mulax yet. Which is shame on me cause they always share very seductive dinner invitations.

They now want to bring back the Sonntagsbraten – you know how families would gather for a proper Sunday roast back in the days?

Well here’s what’s on the menu (sorry, too lazy to translate).
I’m unfortunately not in town but if you are here’s the event.

VORSPEISE:
Wildkräutersalat, Anis-Joghurt-Dressing & Speckwürfel

SONNTAGSBRATEN:
Ruppiner Lammkeule, Röstkartoffeln, Speckbohnen & Jus

DESSERT:
Eis

Neukölln Winter Bazar

I received an email from Johanna sharing that she and her friend Maggie are doing a winter bazar this weekend. Feel in need of retail therapy? Vintage style. Now you know where to go.

Check out their stuff on the Rag & Bone Man Facebook page.

An Ass, a Fairy and a dead Celebrity

I’m still waiting for the next Pale Blue Door appearance in Berlin. Did you go in 2012?

Once again the Londoners are the lucky ones. This menu is mouthwatering!

The place to be. If you’re a “flee” (-a).

Because I say so! – going to Platoon Kunsthalle for the first time tomorrow and not just for a regular visit but to actually sell some of my clothes and jewellery. Of course all very exclusive pieces so you totally have to come and make a good deal.

- or just hang out and chat and listen to nice music.

Bonus: the amazing Sylwia van der Wonderland aka Vonda 7 is selling her stuff too. If not to buy something you should at least come to get her autograph cause she is gonna be BIG like the day after tomorrow.

Event info HERE.

And this is the nicest flea market soundtrack ever.

The apple has fallen!

Last minute notice but for those who are around visit Markthalle XI today or tomorrow for their apple market special.

It’s October, the season is on!Sorry, Che, we missed it…

Do you feel lucky…punk?

It’s incredible how we “in the western world” (keeping in mind all the options of “sharing and caring”) seem to just live in a bubble – where we don’t even fully comprehend or appreciate our luck to be born, raised and to live in this part of the world.

And I say “we” because I’m ignorant myself. Well, I do support the homeless people hanging in front of my nearby Rewe and I let Unicef withdraw money from my account every month. Small things like that. Because it’s easy and requires a minimum of involvement – so I have time to browse blogs, attend “see and be seen”-events or go out for dinners in nice restaurants with friends. It’s like Ally McBeal (if you remember that tv-show) once replied when she was asked “why are your problems so much bigger than everybody else’s?” “Because they’re mine”. Simple as that.

Well, the ambition to act must be the first step and then “action” will follow. And awareness plays an important role. So I’m glad that people like the ones behind Lakino make an effort to communicate stories we would otherwise not hear. Maybe then we will start to say “I must do something” instead of the passive version “Something must be done.”

So this Thursday I’m off to Lakino‘s Human Rights night for a short educational trip. The 5 day movie festival at Babylon in Mitte presents selected work relating to seven topics and a “best of” category. The experience might not instantly “break my bubble” but maybe it’ll expand it.

More information on the website.

Mummy porn meets Stasi stories

Or should I say “versus”? I guess the title makes you wonder but I’m talking about some of my literary adventures this summer.

Inspired by a brief but intense encounter with an East-German surgeon (yes, sounds like this could relate to reading Fifty Shades of Grey aka mummy porn but no), I’m bringing Stasiland on my upcoming Ibiza-holiday.

I often feel like my relationships with Berlin is too “here and now” which is a real shame when there is so much history both “in our faces” and “between the lines”.

And about Fifty Shades of Grey…what to say? Think the sales numbers (+20 mio just in the States since April) speak for themselves.
The book got me interested in the classic pieces that I have yet to “explore” by Anaïs Nin, Marguerite Duras and George Batailles just to mention a few authors. Also, the Daily Beast made a list of modern “erotica bestsellers” if you need inspiration.

And speaking of literature the internationales literaturfestival berlin is coming up. While the publishers celebrate the return of erotic literature Byung-Chul Han is doing a speech on how in his opinion erotica has been replaced by porn.

For those of you who are getting red ears from all this erotica talk there’s plenty of more decent subject on the programme at the festival too.

Mexican / Korean Weekend

I had a quick lunch today at Chaparro (craved their soft tacos) and saw this flyer promoting this weekend’s fusion food event with Fräulein Kimchi.

For those who are in the neighbourhood – or feel like doing some food fusion vs. Kreuberg exploring, it sounds like a winner.

More sips of happiness, please.

“When her guests were awash with champagne and with gin, She was recklessly sober, as sharp as a pin.”

Went to “Tonight we Tanqueray” at Made My Day a few weeks back and was happy to see it wasn’t the usual Torstraße “Free drinks? – we’re in!” get-together. Groovy live music, süper-tasty cocktails by skilled barkeepers and a nice crowd of gin-loving people.

So here’s a post devoted to the upcoming event at Atlas Pancakes in X-Berg on Thursday June 14th. Let’s see if they stay clean for round two. I have faith. Though unfortunately they couldn’t organise the barkeeper from the video. That would have been a sure winner!
