Nevermind the Hipsters … here’s the good news.

July 13, 2012 § 1 Comment

We have it on good authority that one of our favourite places to hang out on a Sunday in Berlin is there to stay …

Mauerpark has one of the biggest and best flea markets in town, full of bars, cafes and more record stalls you can poke a dusty finger at. It was here I picked up a mint copy of Slayer’s Show No Mercy … from back in the day when they still wore makeup, and you can’t argue with that. METAL. And it is now, thankfully, no longer under the hammer of gentrification.

Mauerpark also hosts Bearpit Karaoke in a concrete amphitheatre by the Wall, loads of fun if the weather is up for it. On a good day you can get hundreds of folks, sweatin’ & gettin’ their fremdschämen on. Delightful.

There was some rather grim talk of it all being cleared out to make way for more apartments, but our friend Horst von Bremen gave us the update a little while back, that it’s all cool and won’t happen. So, Good Folks of Fine Taste like You & Me: 1 – Blackhearted Landshark Fatcats: 0!
