GORDON — A RECORD STORE & CAFÉ SERVING ISRAELI CUISINE

GORDON — A RECORD STORE & CAFÉ SERVING ISRAELI CUISINE

Who wants to be rushed while digging through records?  Welcome to Gordon: a vinyl store and café in one. Doron Eisenberg and Nir Ivenizki offer albums from their own labelLegotek Records as well as select electronic tunes here. But that’s not all, because they are also great cooks. The menu offers Israeli classics, such as Shakshuka and Sabih. Bourekas, sandwiches served with hard boiled eggs, and the Swedish ginger ale by Naturfrisk, found only here throughout Berlin, make a surprisingly good match. The vegan chocomonster bar is made by their neighbor and is a sweet treat that goes perfectly with their coffee from the Barn Roastery or iced teas from ManuTeefaktur. I’ll be coming back for sure, for an early coffee with a rugelach (Jewish croissant) or for healthy and hearty lunch. Although Gordon’s stylish interior design with heavy emphasis on wood was all self-built in time for a soft opening in mid August 2014, the grand opening is tomorrow. Come by and be entertained by cool tunes and some tasty hummus. (Text: Nina Trippel / photo: Sasha Kharchenko)

FORTY AND FORTY: CERAMICS & REAL TWEETS AT GALERIE NEU

Just in time for Berlin Art Week, Galerie Neu is showcasing an exhibition by French artist Marc Camille Chaimowicz together with Manfred Pernice and Klara Lidén. The show “Forty and Forty” exhibits 40 newly produced ceramic vases and 40 real canaries twittering in the gallery space; an installation that offers a stage for the song birds and hopefully a poetic pleasure to the visitors.

CURATOR’S TOUR & BREAKFAST WITH MICHAEL SAILSTORFER

CURATOR’S TOUR & BREAKFAST WITH MICHAEL SAILSTORFER

This year’s Art Week calendar offers plenty of options to discover Berlin’s art world. I’m planning on the guided tour at Haus am Waldsee; Dr. Katja Blomberg will introduce “B-Side” by artist Michael Sailstorfer. My most recent encounter with his work was at Sammlung Boros, where his popcorn machine left a lasting olfactory and visual memory. Again at Haus am Waldsee, you’ll witness his sense of humor, although there will be no popcorn; instead, breakfast will be served after the tour, weather permitting, in the sculpture garden. And to top it off, the tour and breakfast will by accompanied by the artist himself. (Text: Nina Trippel)

MALIN ELMLID RECOMMENDS: TAUSENDSUEND — CAKES BY LAURA-XIMENA VILLANUEVA GUERRA

MALIN ELMLID RECOMMENDS: TAUSENDSUEND — CAKES BY LAURA-XIMENA VILLANUEVA GUERRA

It started off with a classic bread trade: Laura offered to make the dream cake for my birthday four years ago for a barter. “What do you like?” she asked, “blueberries and fudge” I answered. Magic happened and she baked the most amazing cake ever. We started trading; I baked bread for her dinners, and she made personalized cakes for any special birthday parties I was invited to. She successfully combined pretzels, sea salt caramels and chocolate in one amazing cake. Blackberries, vodka butter cream and raw cacao nibs I brought back from Nicaragua in another. Not to mention the layered strawberry rhubarb cake with white chocolate ganache spiked with aphrodisiac tonka beans she created for my book. She can make a cake that follows your stories perfectly, while never compromising on quality. By using Belgian chocolate, her ganache simply tastes better; using eggs no older than 2 days, her meringue naturally is baked to perfection. Quality should have its price, but if you want to celebrate with a perfect cake and can’t manage it yourself, then no one else can do it better than Laura-Ximena Villanueva Guerra and her enterprise Tausendsuend.

Malin Elmlid has been living in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg since 2000 and writes for various travel and lifestyle publications. She is the founder of the trading network The Bread Exchange and her book is coming out in October.

ART & PARTY AT THE FORMER CZECH CULTURE CENTER

ART & PARTY AT THE FORMER CZECH CULTURE CENTER

Leipziger Strasse is getting another upgrade; the former Czech institution for culture is being revamped by Conny Opper and his team. I’m sure a lot will happen there in the years to come. Already yesterday saw its open house with various artist installations and music that continued into the wee hours. The unofficial abc reception by Bureau N & Niche will be held there today, and the Berlin blog “I Heart Berlin” will be celebrating its 7th year anniversary on Saturday hosting: a photo group show “We Are Berlin”, a pop-up barber shop, and the 3rd Berlin Film Night with a bunch of Berlin-related short films. Of course all this will be followed by another infamous I Heart Berlin party, where the guests dress to impress and dance until dawn. (Text: Sven Hausherr)
