I was at Mitte Meer yesterday, still located in the lonely urban wasteland behind Hamburger Bahnhof. This location is closing at the end of the month (10% off! everything), and I wonder why and what will replace it. If desolation was Berlin's keynote, increasingly it's commerce and noise. This weekend, the Veuve Cliquot Airstream will set up shop in this transitional space, serving posh food truck fare cooked up by the Chipps team: truffled currywurst, sweet potato fries, brioche burgers and so forth. This Sunday there's a fancy brunch from 11am-3pm with French pop classics and petanque, and they've kindly given me two tickets to give to you (two courses + a glass of bubbly or vice versa). Leave a comment by 6pm today and I'll choose two people this evening: extra points if you share your favorite vacant lot in Berlin. Oh, be warned that little ones (under 18s) can't attend, so no boozy brunch with tots in tow!
Clicquot Rolling Diner, Invalidenstraße 50-51 (behind the Hamburger Bahnhof), Berlin-Mitte (map)
Movie night Saturday 16 July from 7pm, Sunday brunch 17 July 11am-3pm, World cup screening 7:30pm on (cancelled b/c of bad weather forecast - check Clicquot Rolling Diner to be sure the other events are happening before you leave)
Update: Dorota & Sascha, the tickets are yours! Drop me an email at hello [at] berlinreified.com with your full name and I'll put you on the list. I love the vacant lot recommendations though, so do keep those coming.
