A Neues Experience

The TV Guide

Last night was a quiet one for us. Because we stayed out in the morning/early afternoon longer, we were stuck in our room working late into the night. We took a break for dinner but that was about it. Today we made our way to Museum Island to check out the antiquities at the Neues Museum. Afterward we tried to go for a hot air balloon ride but couldn’t because of the high winds. Instead, we visited the Checkpoint Charlie Museum, saw more of the Berlin Wall and met up for lunch with our new friend Michael. More »

Gay-M-F

The TV Guide

Last night David and I hooked up with our friend Mark to get down to some serious dancing. We started out the night at the weekly “gay prom” at SO 36 and then grabbed a few drinks at Rose’s before hitting up the biggest (and arguably best) weekly gay dance party at GMF. Earlier today, David and I lunched in Mitte before we spent some time checking out a beautifully rebuilt Jewish synagogue … and then we did some shopping. We are moving into our last days here in Berlin and are trying to enjoy as much of the city as possible. More »

MaMa’s House

The TV Guide

After spending a somewhat somber day in the city yesterday, David and I decided to hit the town with some friends to enjoy some revelry on our first Friday night in town here in Berlin. We met up with Zuzka and her crew — Mike, Arthur, Travis and his lovely French girlfriend — for a night of conversation … and beer. ‘Twas a pretty late but really fun night. More »

In Loving Memory

The TV Guide

Last night David and I caught a performance of the Blue Man Group and we thought we had scored by nabbed front row center seats for the show. Little did we know that front row center is the WORST place to see the show … especially if you wish to remain unschmootzed. We had fun tho and afterward hung out with our new friend Mark. This morning, we made our way out into the city to spent a couple of hours at the stunning Holocaust Memorial. The early morning following the late night was rough but totally worth it. More »

Das Jüdisches Museum

The TV Guide

Bright and early this morning, David and I made our way to Das Jüdisches MuseumThe Jewish Museum — here in Berlin to spend a few hours taking in as much as we could. I was completely floored by how amazing the museum is in terms of exhibits and architecture alike. The museum is set up in a zig-zag pattern, giving it a very modern look and feel. It is one of the more impressive museums that I have had the fortune to visit. More »

Wet & Wild & The Wall

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fun-filled day of so much awesomeness … I can’t even tell you. The Kylie Minogue concert was just amazing … but after the show, David and I hung out for a bit with our new Berlin friends Mark and Emi for a bit to finish out the night. Earlier today, David and I visited what’s left of the Berlin Wall and then spent a leisurely afternoon walking around town. It was not a bad Wednesday, let me tell you. More »

Kylie Minogue Brings Her ‘Les Folies Tour 2011′ To Berlin, Germany

Blows the Competition Out of the Water

So … where to begin? Last night David and I got to see Kylie Minogue LIVE in concert on her Les Folies Tour 2011 on her stop here in Berlin, Germany and I can safely say — without question — it was among THE most spectacular shows I’ve ever seen … be it concert, musical, what have you. Kylie‘s Les Folies show is a stunning spectacle for the senses … and one that we were lucky to savor from very close-up in the VIP section called the Splash Zone. I took far too many photos and some video of last night’s fun. If you are curious about the show and don’t mind being spoiled, read on to share in some of our fun last night. More »

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

The TV Guide

After having completely missed out on enjoying any of Berlin in the day yesterday, David and I rebounded nicely last night. We made our way out to White Trash Fast Food restaurant because we heard they have the best burgers in town … and I can report that that is VERY true. I can’t even express how much awesome they have packed into that fairly sizable eatery. This morning, we ventured out for breakfast and city exploring … but with our big Kylie Minogue concert tonight, I’m having a hard time focusing on much of anything. More »

Time Out Berlin

The TV Guide

Welp … today was a total wash for David and me here in Berlin. Because we both stayed up until after 5:00 AM local time to watch the Academy Awards last night (and root for our boy Trent Reznor), we kinda slept until 2:30 PM … and then both had to work a full day of writing so … it’s now 8 PM, we’re still working and the day is basically over.
