Public viewing

I just dropped of some friends at Hauptbahnhof and noticed that Berlin is pretty much dead during the Euro 2008 football games – except for those places who own a TV, of any size. And that’s what public viewing is all about.

To native English speakers the name itself, “public viewing”, may sound strange. In short, it’s about watching events in public places. Most of those places have giant flat screens, but not all of them. Berlin itself offers lots of opportunities to go outside and watch a game. Plenty of bars, in the parks, restaurants and so on.

Interesting also that football is not just a guys thing anymore. Lots of girls on the streets wearing shirts and flags. So this is not gonna be so boring after all. Woo. ;-)

Sunshine! Villalobos! Weekend!

Weekend Roof - M-nus party
If you don’ know what to do today, I suggest you take it minimal and head to the Weekend Roof right now. One of the greatest DJs ever, Ricardo Villalobos, is playing there right now and goes on until nine in the evening. I am not sure how much the entrance fee is, but since the terace is one of the Berlin’s finest and it’s +28c out there, I think it’s worth it in any case. See you there, Berlin!
