RisOtto

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

The aptly named RisOtto serves – what else? – risotto, and nothing else. And such delicious, creamy rice bowls they are! The menu changes daily, usually with five savory choices and a dessert option ranging in price from 4,90-8,90 EUR. You could go simple with peas and lime, a bit more fancy with white beans, ham and thyme, or try the "mother of all risottos": risotto milanese with saffron and butter.

transmediale celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012, and as always it's a fascinating look at the weird and wonderful world of digital art. This year, the arts festival celebrating digital culture wraps their program around the theme "in/compatible." Everything seems to connect in our network culture, but not everything fits or works together. What artistic imaginations arise from this confounding reality?

Christmas Cabaret
Christmas Cabaret

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Head down to Heimathafen Neukölln for Christmas cabaret, Berlin style. The three 'Rixdorf Pearls' break out the tinsel and fill the beautiful old ballroom with festive irreverence. With a healthy sprinkling of kitsch in their holiday cheer, they entertain with classic songs and a certain disregard for political correctness.

Rixdorf Christmas Market
Rixdorf Christmas Market

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

The Rixdorf Weihnachtsmarkt is one of Berlin's prettiest Christmas markets. Rixdorf was once a little village that got swallowed up by the big city, and the charming tree-lined square, lit by gas lamps, still has an old-fashioned air. The market is on for one weekend only, and it's small and sweet, with great food, a small stage with carolers and children's shows, pony rides, and even the three Magi with real camels.

Most people don't come to Berlin to go golfing, but on a short and gloomy day, it's like going under a sunlamp, just way more fun! If putting is your passion get your fix in Kreuzberg's Gorlitzer Park at Schwarzlicht Minigolf Berlin. Although it gets dark at 15:30 these days, never fear: the course is indoors and lit by black lights.

It's impossible to have a drink at Kosmetiksalon Babette without marvelling the glamorous architecture of the bar. The 1960's Soviet-Era glass box is on the main drag of Karl Marx Allee (hence KMA 36) the former official parade route of East Berlin. Once a GDR cosmetic salon, the bar sets itself apart from the monolithic concrete apartment blocks as a jewel of modern design.

The area north of Miniloft is changing fast, and now there's a great club just a hop, skip and a jump away. We're so happy that one of the last dilapidated, unrenovated buildings on Chauseestraße has been bought by some art-and-party oriented folks, instead of unscrupulous investors looking to make shoddy apartments and lots of cash.
