“Molle and Korn” or a trip to the wild east…written by Larson

today Pervilä, Nicola and me been on our mission to start the weekIn here in Berlin. we wanted to go to an restaurant called "Cafe Miro" by an recomendation of Perviläs helsinki based bookkeeper.

we gladly found the restaurant after a wild trip into the former eastern part of berlin and... it was closed. it opened at 15:00 instead of - as announced on their homepage at 10:00. what to do?

we found a really nice coofee-bar, made some sightseeing at the "Berlin Planetarium" (which was actually closed but hey nobody told us before we already been in there...) we found an original eastern-berlin beer bar and took some "Molle and Korn"..

hours later back to "Cafe Miro" an anatolien restaurant with some tukish, persian and greek inspriations to their food. it was awesome. great food, not expensive, nice service but we ordered a little to much... ;-)

combined with some cocktails (jep they do cocktails as well) we're totally satisfied now...

thanx "Cafe Miro"

welcome partywritten by Larson

come together...

who ever wants please come on thursday evening to a small welcome party. we start with food at "Cafe 100 Wasser" and will figure out what to do later the evening. Berlin-Friedrichshain has lots of Bars, Cafes, Clubs and night-life.

please tell me if you join. I will book tables.

"Cafe 100 Wasser"

a cafe/ restaurant/ bar a bit alternative and in the former eastern part of berlin but pretty much central. food is good, cheap and much. I've been there with a bunch of drunken guys at Philpps stag night and the staff still was freindly and nice...

what comes next...

lot's of bars, cafes and clubs -we will decide then. having a party in Berlin-Fridrichshain is pretty cheap according to german scales (what means that it is like ridiculous cheap in finnish scales ;-) - we will find a place to get propperly shitfaced!

what is it about...

please read post below...

yours larson

btw.: google-map is updated!

mittelpunkt 2010written by Larson

mittel.punkt 2010

...will be held in Jugendgästehaus Wannsee in Berlin more infos on the mittelpunkt-homepage.

I'm not part of the organising-team but as I know some of the foreign guys I thought it would be nice to spread some infos about Berlin, the weekIn and such...


It's damn cold in germany - yepp, it's winter. But it's winter like winter used to be here in Germany some 30 years ago. It's all snow and low temperatures - don't forget your scarf, gloves and boots.

public transport in Berlin

  • you can buy single tickets from 2,10 - 2,80 (depending on how far it is)
  • a 4-rides ticket is 8,00
  • a day-ticket (attention it's NOT a 24h-ticket) is from 6,10 to 6,50
  • there's also the berlin-welcome-card: free rides and 50% off in 150 places like museums for 16,90 (48h), 22,90 (72h) and 29,90 (for 5 days)

as far as I know, all tickets are available at the usual ticket-machines.

the berlin-welcome-card is available at all machines but without the bonus-cheques and street-map. the whole pack is available at all tourist-informations and all train-stations.

the day-ticket starts when you use it for the first time in a public-transport and last then until 3 a.m. of the next day - so usualy far less then 24hrs.

google knows it all

here's a google-map with locations to know it will be updated during the days... keep track.

that's for now - larson

P.S.: I'm already in Berlin when you arrive, just contact me... ;-)


vampire karaokewritten by Boris

after attending j.thuomas lecture about the similarities und differences between larp und sm roleplay, i went to a lecture about "abo by night", which was a vampire karaoke larp. the prince of turku ( of course a toreador, which in fact was malkavian, what explained the karaoke contest ) wanted to elect a new advisor for himself, so the karaoke contest started.
after the lecture we were just doing some karaoke ourself, having some of the former players with us. one of our listeners entered the stage and sung madonnas "like a prayer" and of course, we, the audience applaused. this really gets scary, when thinking of her, playing the local tremere elder. forcing two of her underlings to do some background dancing, while the audience cheering even more extatic than here... karaoke is scary... saying for me, i am through with karaoke after singing iron maidens "fear of the dark" at the weeks pubcrawl game *g*. btw.. did somebody realise so far, that robbie williams song "feel" is the almost perfect vampire song?

some pictures of the lecture:

Diesmal nicht! live at Suomenlinnawritten by Larson

on tuesday we've beent to the suomenlinna sea fortress strawling arround guided by atte our finnish local scout. suomenlinna (castle of finland) was originaly build by the swedes to claim their rights on balticsea against the russians. later the russians used it the other way round until the fortress finaly became finnish.
all in all it was impressive to see a fortress that size with lots of details, like lots of walls, bunkers, cannons (wich some members of Diesmal nicht! used as instruments for their awesome performance "beer as motivation while uphillwalking"), a finnish submarine, a small gunboat in the drydock, a curch-enclosure made from old cannons and anchor-chains and all of this in a landscape reminding one of a golfcourse...
later I convinced boris to join in for sauna-party. sauna was great! having fun with all those nice people was realy relaxing! finlay I updatet my sauna-dgree to second level by running around the nearby shopping hall naked...
