Sadly, the Bar Market, this lovely event serving all kinds of cocktails, wines and other booze, is not happening anymore, but the urge to create a new event circling around stellar alcoholic beverages persisted. Sommeliers Helen Mol and Billy Wagner teamed up with Kavita Meelu and Prince Charles to bring us: champagne – not the ordinary bubbly wine, but the speciality from France – in a never before seen variety. As if that weren’t enough, they’re adding Disco music, disco balls, delicious food by Parker Bowles, Vogueing (!) and there we have it: The Champagne Studio, happening for the first time this Sunday at Prince Charles.
These days, Berlin is experiencing Altweibersommer at its best. And our latest Kitchen Tunes playlist brings back the most beautiful summer memories: The owners of Two and Two café in Neukölln have collected their favorite songs they’re listening to while preparing their homemade French delicacies with a Japanese twist. Imagine a summer’s day, sitting outside in the sun with a cup of iced coffee – here’s the perfect soundtrack, with music from We Are Entfant Terrible to Haruomi Hosono!
When I first read about Die dicke Linda, the name of this new farmers’ market already made me smile. Linda is the name of one of the most popular potato varieties due to a huge media attention some years ago. It was barely saved from extinction by an enormous support from many farmers and movements like Slow Food. Now Linda became the name giver of something new and special happening in Neukölln.
Have you already recovered from Saturday’s Burgers & Hip Hop bash? We’re still struggling, to be honest, but got back on our feet only to count the votes you guys gave for all the fabulous burger vendors grilling patties until late at night.
Because three-time in a row winner District Mot took a break due to a lack of staff (everyone being on vacation), the field was wide open for a new winner and the excitement of the vendors as well as of the audience was noticeable. (Some people even handed us voting sheets on the dancefloor when the burger floor was closed.) Naturally, we’re all excited to see who won the title “Berlin’s Best Burger” this time!
Not only is summertime the season of picnics and barbecue, there’s also nothing better than a breakfast in the sun. One of our all-time favorites to start the day is Meierei with their delicious Alpine dishes! Wonder what they listen to while prepping the gorgeous Gulasch? Well, we have their playlist for our weekly Kitchen Tunes series here for you – the perfect soundtrack for a long and late breakfast, enjoy!
