Chillin’ at Mauerpark

A strange and lovely day. Broke out the bike and headed for the Mauerpark flea market with big visions of a DIY project I spotted on Pinterest this morning. Homemade lampshades from upcycled materials like old photo slides and vintage lampshade wireframes. Unfortunately I didn’t find what I was looking for, and had to hide […]

Best of Berlin Blogs: Roundup Feb 2013

During January I took a respite from my online life and as such got a big behind (oops…haha…typo..ummm…well maybe that too with all the EATING), I mean a BIT behind on reading all the awesome blogs out there about Berlin. Considering the amount of time I usually spend reading them, I thought I’d mention some […]

Iron Beauty On Gendarmenmarkt In Berlin

Kiss Your Honey On Gendarmenmarkt At Night

Have the city’s best wiener schnitzel for dinner at Lutter & Wegner, and then take your honey for a stroll around Gendarmenmarkt at night.  The beautifully lit architecture is impressive to behold and the center of the plaza is the perfect place for a sweep-em-of-their-feet kind of kiss.  Has that ever happened to me?  Not […]

Don’t Hate Me For Hating Currywurst!

I hate currywurst.  There.  I said it.  Being so in love with Berlin as I am means that sentence borders on — no, it is — blasphemy.  The people here go nuts for the (pork?) stuff, and I really cannot understand this gastronomic mystery.  In fact, I’ve been told that Germans eat more than 70 […]

Colors@Concorde: The Fresh And French Party

In the world of all that is hip in Berlin, sometimes the central-western kiezes (especially Charlottenberg and Wilmersdorf) feel a little left out of the buzz, despite being “juuuust a bit outside” the HIP ZONE.  My Prenzlauerberg/Mitte/Kreuzberg rooted neighbors will tell you that’s because there is nothing over there that is hip enough to buzz […]

Creativity, Culture, And Cuisine With Slow Travel Berlin

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Slow Travel Berlin Event at Markthalle IX in Kreuzberg.  The gathering was entitled “A Celebration Of Creativity, Culture & Cuisine,” and it was all that and more… The program was packed with cool activities and a boatload of Berlin tweeps showed up, such as @iamkosmonaut, @uberlinblog, @smonicats […]

Zionskirchplatz And A Tasty Flammkuchen

I had to amend this post because my talented filmmaker friend Luci Westphal, creator of the In A Berlin Minute web series has just released (Sept. 27, 2012) a new episode featuring Zionskirche, the subject of this post, along with several other beautiful important churches from the peaceful revolution: And now for the photo gallery […]

A Totally Yummy Time With Krauted Haus Supper Club

On April 21 and 22, 2012, Krauted Haus Supper Club will be having their next event, “Eat Your Veggies.”  And believe me, if it is anywhere near as good as the last creole-themed get-together on February 12, this is one you won’t want to miss. In order to whet your appetite for the mad culinary […]

Bird Virgin No More (Best Burgers In Berlin!)

On February 9th I finally lost it…I’m a Bird virgin no more.  The Bird in Berlin (Prenzlauerberg) is renowned throughout the city for having seriously fierce burgers and with good – very very good – reason.  They are stupendous. I had the chance to visit the place with the awesome guys from a Berlin startup […]
