A few months ago I read an article entitled ‘Crawl of the damned‘ published on the website of the entertainment magazine ExBerliner. The piece was about one of ExBerliner’s contributors and his night out on one of those infamous Berlin Pub Crawls that loudly stomps, yells and vomits their way around Mitte taking in some of the ‘cool’ and ‘hot’ bars and nightclubs that Berlin is so famous for. Such Pub Crawls, I am semi ashamed to admit, are something that I am quite accustomed to, as yours truly used to be one those sheep herders escorting those drunken, moronic and bad mouthed Australians, that ExBerliner spoke of, from bar to bar as they obliterated themselves. So for the fun of it, I thought I would share with you an insight into such Pub Crawls, from the Tour Guides prospective.

A couple of months ago I brought you the sad news that Idrawalot, one of my favourite little Berlin galleries, would be closing its doors after 2 wonderful years of exhibitions and parties. This coming Thursday night head over to Idrawalot and say one last goodbye at their farewell party that will feature a secret exhibition, Live Tattooing by Pete Corrie, Free Artwork Give-Aways, Delicious Boozes and more to be announced.

Cirque du Solo @ Ehemaliges Stummfilmkino Delphi- A weekend long event taking place in an original 1920′s theatre that features live performances, music, cabaret, partying and a whole lot more. Tonight’s event is centered around a circus theme, tomorrows a 1920′s themed Ball and Sunday will be a cabaret night.
This coming Saturday evening Roadrunners Paradise host the titillating launch party for a new photo book entitled ‘Berlin Burlesque‘ by Australian photographer Paul Green. The evening will feature a presentation by Publisher Dr. Norbert Jaron and Paul Green himself, which will be followed by a special performance by some of the beauties of the burlesque world.
Berlin Burlesque is a glimpse of the modern or ‘New Burlesque’ scene found in various smokey bars and theatres around Berlin. Paul’s work captures the glamour, eroticism and fun of the burlesque art form, that is strongly associated with Berlin of the 1920′s, but is one element of those golden twenties that still lives on today.
Paul Green’s ‘Berlin Burlesque’ will be available for purchase at the event or can alternatively be purchased through amazon.de. For more information regarding the book launch and party, check out the Facebook Event Page.
Friday September 6
At.tension Festival @ Flugplatz Laerz- Taking place at the same location as the infamous Fusion Festival, at.tension is a 4 day theatre festival that will surely be a popular choice this weekend for Fusion and theatre lovers.
Unfortunately due to technical problems encountered earlier in the week, previous Weekend Tips post have been lost into the electronic wilderness that is the internet jungle. So, we may as well start back at numero uno for this weeks Weekend Tips.
