Tattoo You

By Linda Tancs

The 19th International Tattoo Convention gets underway in Berlin at Arena Berlin from 4 to 6 December.  Here’s where you’ll find Isobel Varley, the most tattooed senior woman in the world, as indicated in the Guinness Book of World Records.  Also appearing are legendary tattoo artist Herbert Hoffman and well-known illustrator Sarah Horwath.  Will Elaine Davidson of Brazil, the most pierced woman on Earth with 6000 body piercings, make a return appearance?   Some things really must be seen to be believed.

Currywurst Museum Opens

By Linda Tancs

Think you know it all about German sausages? Well, forget your brats, bocks and weisswursts. These days, currywurst is king. Enjoying a cult-like status, the wurst has its own museum in Berlin, a stone’s throw away from Checkpoint Charlie at Schützenstrasse 70. This national dish of hot pork sausage and curry sauce claims its origin there. At the museum you can enjoy a multimedia experience complete with a spice chamber, experimental eat-in kitchen and faux snack bar for photo ops. There’s even a personality test to determine the type of curry you are. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Bring your appetite.

Roll Out the Barrels

By Linda Tancs

You needn’t wait for Oktoberfest to enjoy your favorite brew.  Kicking off tomorrow through 3 August is the Berlin International Beer Festival along the city’s Karl-Marx-Allee.  Showcasing over 200 breweries from more than 80 countries, the event includes traditional culinary fare, musical entertainment, and the newest brands to tickle your taste buds.  Admission is free.  The festivities this year will highlight 1000 years of Czech beer making, which brings to mind the Czech proverb, “A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s best to be thoroughly sure.”
