STICKS ‘N’ SUSHI: DANISH-JAPANESE FUSION RESTAURANT MOVES INTO MITTE

STICKS ‘N’ SUSHI: DANISH-JAPANESE FUSION RESTAURANT MOVES INTO MITTE

Sushi and yakitori, done the Danish way. That’s what Sticks ‘n’ Sushi is all about. Just a few hundred meters from Rosenthaler Platz is where the Copenhagen sushi pros have made themselves at home at their third Berlin restaurant. Its design is inspired by the architecture of Japanese residential neighborhoods, with warm, earthy colors and eye-catching lighting. The menu has undergone a culinary upgrade, offering sushi mainstays and classic grilled yakitori (fish, meat or vegetable skewers grilled on a lava stone), as well as a range of vegetarian and vegan creations. These include crispy uramaki with avocado and sesame seeds, smoked beetroot tartare with deep-fried artichoke wedges, and shishito yaki sticks with padron peppers, spicy gochujang, tsume and lime sauce, served alongside grilled edamame with sea salt or spicy miso. Skillfully arranged and served on modern tableware, only fish and seafood from sustainable and certified sources are featured here. Be sure to leave enough room for dessert, because the green matcha marzipan balls with chocolate and yuzu sorbet are reason enough to visit.

DRINK SYNDIKAT ADVENT CALENDAR — OPEN THE DOOR TO FESTIVE GIN COCKTAILS

This advent calendar is for adults only: Drink Syndikat’s Gin Cocktail Advent Calendar, which has a new festive design and is packed with the perfect ingredients for sippable cocktails. Founded in 2014 by Jens Hoffmann and Erik Pfauth, Syndikat is all about whipping up high-quality mixed drinks in the comfort of your own home. Their sets combine high-quality spirits with the knowledge and skills of experienced bartenders, and the Advent calendar, which brings together popular recipes from the past eight years, is no exception. Behind each of the 24 doors are the ingredients you need for mixing at home (such as bitters and syrups), and every two to four days you’ll collect enough to craft a delicious beverage, for a total of 16 drinks. You can look forward to the likes of a Reserve Coffee Sour with a nutty aroma, and a Pink Float with elderberry, grapefruit and orange notes. Also included is a handbook with eight recipes, recommendations and details about the various manufacturers from around the world. And since the holiday spirit is best experienced in great company, the Advent Calendar’s drinks are designed for two people. Here’s to happy cocktail sipping!

ACHT+1 — SUSTAINABLY MADE SPARKLING WINE FROM EIGHT BERLIN FRIENDS

ACHT+1 — SUSTAINABLY MADE SPARKLING WINE FROM EIGHT BERLIN FRIENDS

It all started with eight friends. With a shared passion for good drinks, a group of Berlin buddies decided to make their own prosecco, a move which snowballed into sparkling wine project Acht+1. Launched at the end of 2020, the brand is a collaboration with sparkling wine producer Bouvet Ladubay and the family-run Sekthaus Raumland from Rheinhessen and the Palatinate. Together, the team have created a collection of three elegant and fruity sparkling wines: Réserve, Blanc de Blancs and the limited edition Acht+Cevin Parker, which comes in a bottle individually designed by the Berlin artist. All the wines are vegan, organic and sustainably produced using traditional bottle fermentation. They’re an ideal dinner companion and make a nice statement drink for your next party or after-work get-together. But these bubbles aren’t just tasty: by buying them you can support the environment too. With every bottle of Acht+1 sparkling wine sold, a tree is planted by the Eden Project to help support reforestation. The ecology project in Cornwall on England’s south coast saves old and rare plant species from extinction and works to conserve resources. We never thought bubbles could help biodiversity, but we are here for it.

DINNER, DRINKS AND COMPELLING CONVERSATION — TABLE TALKS AT THE DRIVE SALON

DINNER, DRINKS AND COMPELLING CONVERSATION — TABLE TALKS AT THE DRIVE SALON

The dinner table: it’s where delicious meals are eaten and – given the right people – stimulating conversations are had. If good food and good chat are high on your agenda, you’ll want to check out the Table Talk series at the Drive Volkswagen Group Forum on Friedrichstraße. At these dinner events, you are guaranteed interesting guests – or, to be more accurate, guest – since each evening will welcome a famous face from the arts, culture or public life. Next week, for instance, actor and author Devid Striesow will be hosting a sold out night of conversation and cuisine. Over a three-course dinner and drinks, Striesow will talk about his book “Klassik drastisch”, in which he writes of his love for classical music with co-author Axel Ranisch, a director. The team are planning another dining event on 02.12.2022, so keep your eyes peeled. With the star guests sorted, all that’s left to do is pick your lucky dining companion. Besties to the front…

A SOCIAL CARD GAME FOR PLAYFUL MOMENTS AND DEEP CONVERSATION — “DARE TO BE CURIOUS” BY KINDRED PEOPLE

A SOCIAL CARD GAME FOR PLAYFUL MOMENTS AND DEEP CONVERSATION — “DARE TO BE CURIOUS” BY KINDRED PEOPLE

The temperatures are dropping, the days are getting shorter and you’re probably spending more time indoors. If you are after a cozy cold weather activity, how about this Cee Cee favorite: the Dare To Be Curious card game from Kindred People. As the name suggests, this question-filled game is all about letting your guard down and opening up about your values, fears and dreams. The conversations it prompts help you get to know your fellow player(s) – and yourself – better. With a pastel design that makes it a good coffee table companion, the set includes 150 questions on all areas of life: What have you learnt about yourself through dating? Which beliefs from your culture have you taken with you and which have you left behind? What’s the difference between how you see yourself and how others see you? There are three levels to the game, and the questions get deeper as you go along. They’re intended to encourage interesting conversation, thus bringing you and your partner(s) closer together. The compact cards make the game (which is now also available in German) perfect for a long car ride, a cozy evening over wine with friends, a date or a picnic with new flatmates. As for us: the game has become a firm fixture on our team trips and outings.
