We finally got a chance last night to check out the Vagabund Brauerei. Wedding seems to be the place these days for micro breweries and as a result we’re getting a good education! Located just off Seestr on Antwerpenerstr it’s accessible from many directions. OK, down the business, these guys know their beer, on tap on the night were 3 of their own brews; a smoky ale, an IPA, and a triple IPA. They also had an IPA and an Pils from other micro breweries.

Normally I´m not a “meet for lunch” person, I prefer to relaxing dinners, drinking some wine, without worrying about wasting the rest of the afternoon. But sometimes it´s nice for a change and I found the perfect quiet café in Eulerstr to do so. It´s a small charming place in a little square between Bornholmerstr and Grünthalerstr.
On Sunday evening I had the pleasure of attending a great concert in the bar/gallery Studio Acht (8). It was the first time I was at this bar and it won´t be the last. The concert by Derek Shirley was one of a series of concerts organised by the record label Sacred Realism. The series of concerts is a curated program with most performers falling into the echtzeitmusik genre. Continue reading
A couple of weeks ago we finally got to go to the Pierogarnia, in Turiner str. A friend had recommended this cosy restaurant/café where one can taste real home-made Polish pierogi.
There is no possible excuse to miss this fantastic exhibition; the selection of pieces is marvellous, the location is impressive, there is huge names like Helmut Newton, Marina Abramovic and Alfredo Jaar included and it´s for free.
I could not imagine anything better to have close to my house than a tapas bar! It opened in December in Prinzenallee but I didn´t discover it until I read this review in the blog Weddingweiser. It is a very nice place to stop by and have some Spanish wine and tasty appetisers. The bartender is very friendly and talkative and does all the cooking and service at the same time. There is wine for less than €2 a glass and small tapas for €1´30 and all of it tastes nice and authentic. We are definitely going back for more soon, also because if you go ten times, you win a bottle of wine :P
As has been for the last few years the CTM festival made it’s presence felt in Wedding. Various concerts were held at Stadtbad Wedding as well as the sound and light installation N-POLYTOPE. Taking it’s inspiration from renowned 20th century composer Iannis Xenakis it is an impressive structure featuring many lights, speakers, lazers, and smoke machines all involved in some conversation that is ever evolving. Xenakis is known for his use of algorithms and complex maths in his compositions and there is no shortage of that here. In saying that while there was obviously a lot of research and technical development involved in producing this installation the whole experience still feels quite organic and alive, a very enjoyable experience.
