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.

Meandering In Berlin

The TV Guide

Today was our first full day here in Berlin and I am happy to report that it was a very fun and productive day for David me. We decided to try and figure out the public transportation system so we ended up traveling by tram, S-Bahn (above ground train) and U-Bahn (underground subway). Of course, we also traveled by foot and managed to stumble upon some very cool things. First, we grabbed an early coffee at the Ramones Museum Berlin / Cafe Mania (RMBC) then found the C|O Berlin Museum and checked out the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit currently on display. More »

Ich Bin Ein Auslander

The TV Guide

Yay!! I am happy to report that David and I successfully made our way from NYC to Berlin, Germany without a single problem. Our business class Delta flight was as perfect as can be. We made it to our temporary Germany home without incident and already explored our new neighborhood for a bit. I’m not gonna lie, it’s really freakin’ cold here but we’ve been having so much fun we *almost* haven’t noticed ;) More »

Surf’s Up . . . In Manhattan

The TV Guide

So yesterday was David’s and my last day here in Manhattan before we fly off later tonight to Berlin, Germany to start phase 2 of our 5 year anniversary trip. We managed to pack a lot of fun into our last night in town … capping off a really fun week here in the Big Apple. We got to see some of David’s friends, grab some drinks at a surf shop bar (really) and then see the fantastic new Broadway musical The Book of Mormon. Not bad for a Thursday, yeah? More »

Theater Review: ‘The Book Of Mormon’

The TV Guide

Last night David, Marissa, Ryan and I were lucky enough to score fantastic seats for the first preview performance of the new Matt Stone and Trey Parker (South Park) Broadway musical The Book of Mormon. I don’t think I need to explain the tone of the show to any of y’all who are at all familiar with the humor of their animated series South Park … but for those of you not in the know, I’ll just say that humorous offensiveness is their brand of comedy. Because the show is in previews, I am hesitant to discuss specifics about the show but I will say that I LOVED every single second of the show wholly and entirely. It’s a show that is bound to enjoy some controversy but, IMHO, it will also likely enjoy much success from critics and the audience at large as a whole. More »

And The Hits Just Keep On Comin’

The TV Guide

Last night our evening’s entertainment took place at Joe’s Pub where a group of David’s friends and we took in a live show called Our Hit Parade. Weekly, a group of NYC’s finest Illuminati of the arts perform renditions of the Top 10 Songs of the Week … to much hilarity. Before we went to the show, David and I grabbed dinner at Vynl with his sister Eden and then it was showtime!! More »
