SCHLACHTFEST — CELEBRATING THE PIG AT MARKTHALLE NEUN

SCHLACHTFEST — CELEBRATING THE PIG AT MARKTHALLE NEUN

If you’re interested in knowing where your meat comes from, this weekend’s dinner event “Slaughter Fest” (Schlachtfest) at Markthalle Neun will satisfy your culinary curiosity. Last Monday the hosts went to the farm Gut Hirschaue in Brandenburg to shoot two “Märkisches Sattelschwein” pigs. This method of slaughter is considered to be most humane, giving the least amount of pain and stress to the animals. Incidentally, it also limits the amount of stress-induced hormone released into the meat. Markthalle Neun will be closed this Saturday and transformed into a one-night-only restaurant where different renowned Berlin chefs prepare pork dishes using the two pigs, nose to tail. They’ve reserved a limited amount of tickets for the Cee Cee readers – click here for details. Pay homage to the pig! (Text: Sven Hausherr / Photos: Wurstsack)

KARAKULOWA — SOPHISTICATED SHIRTS WITH UNIQUE HISTORIES

KARAKULOWA — SOPHISTICATED SHIRTS WITH UNIQUE HISTORIES

For those who are looking to escape the non-stop hustle and bustle of the real world, Karakulowa is well worth a visit. The small shop in Graefekiez leads you through a romantic journey; ornamental tiles, wood, and fresh flowers decorate this gem of a space. The décor will start to fade pleasantly into the background as you browse through the hand-made shirts, allowing your undivided attention to be placed on owner Lilijas Meier and her team’s skills. After finishing her fashion design studies at Esmod, Meier transformed what was once an empty space into a treasure trove of her beautiful up-cycled products. Together with her small team, the designer utilizes old 60′s and 70′s bed linens and roaring 20′s buttons for her creations. Labelled with simple stamps, the fabrics and textiles that come with unique histories and stories are reincarnated. In an age where mass production is the norm, Karakulowa gives us a breath of fresh air – a perfect example of “slow fashion”. (Text: Catharina Schick)

DANIELA IHRIG RECOMMENDS: PARMA DI VINIBENEDETTI

DANIELA IHRIG RECOMMENDS: PARMA DI VINIBENEDETTI

Coping with the loss of Da Baffi in Wedding district has become easier since we gained a new fabulous little piece of Italy: Parma di Vinibenedetti. Grey whitewashed walls, wooden chairs and simple industrial lamps spread warm light. Their style is unusual for Wedding, but in a nice and cozy way. The big glass showcase displays delectable fair-trade Italian specialties while the aroma of freshly made pizza and bread fill the room. You are spoiled of choice: from fresh focaccia using biodynamic “Sattelschwein” ham – homemade by the owner Philippe Benedetti himself in Brandenburg, to delicious pizza margherita together with organic red wine. You may need to give in and try it all – or come back for more the next day. (Photos: Benjamin Lindenkreuz)

Daniela Ihrig is an art historian at museum Ostwall. Despite moving away from Berlin a few months ago, she manages to visit Wedding every two weeks.

FUCKUP NIGHTS: SHARING FAILED IDEAS AT PICKNICK’S NEW VENUE

FUCKUP NIGHTS: SHARING FAILED IDEAS AT PICKNICK’S NEW VENUE

Not every story is a success story. But when does success come to an end? More importantly, when do you realize that you have failed? And when you do, how do you manage to overcome it? Find out at “FuckUp Nights“, a concept that started in Mexico City in 2012 and has spread all over the world since. Maybe you can pick up some interesting stories to help you figure out what you are doing wrong. The third FuckUp Night in Berlin is taking place tomorrow night. Join the event and listen to speakers such as Bernd Pickert, the “guru of glasses”, who had to learn how to deal with shards. In addition, we recommend you to check out the new venue from the folks behind Picknick Club, called Studio Picknick. We love the space and hope it becomes the new hot spot in Mitte. (Text: Nina Trippel)

TUNE IN TO THIS — CEE CEE’S MUSIC MIX FOR TAPE.TV

TUNE IN TO THIS — CEE CEE’S MUSIC MIX FOR TAPE.TV

In Germany it can sometimes be difficult to watch your favorite music videos without running into some type of error or legal message. As many video viewing portals are based in America, this is a vibe-kill many of us are familiar with. So say hello to Tape.tv, a legal and free web page that will keep all you party-goers raising the roof, uninterrupted, until the sun comes up. In 2008 Conrad Fritzsch and Stephanie Renner had the brilliant idea to afford users the opportunity to draw from a wide array of major labels and indie labels alike to create their own stations of music video goodness. Users also have the option to follow their favorite friends, artists, and studios. We don’t mean to toot our own horn, but our collaborative playlist with Studio Hausherrwill rock your socks off — we may have had a little too much fun choosing our favorite tunes and creating GIFs inspired by them…just for you. Enjoy! (Text: Dahlia Stone / Photo: Studio Hausherr)
