I’m back in Berlin recovering from the 2011 Whiney Expatriate Blogger Meet-Up, which was held in Cologne this year.
The 2011 WEBMU was fantastic and I heartily thank our fantastic hosts for putting together a very nice program that included lots of beer, a nice tour of the city, and a lot more beer.
Last night I had dinner with Michele–we went to Rhodos Pallas, a Greek restaurant in Weimar that I’d overlooked. Anke told me that it existed and off we went. It is in the basement of a hotel (Bauhausstraße 12) and was cozy. I ordered the leg of lamb with eggplant–and the portion was huge, although [...]

Now that I’m back in Weimar, it’s time to pause and reflect.
First up, you’ll be happy to know that I have no plans to go any further than 30km from my flat for approximately a month. I fully intend upon enjoying everything Weimar has to offer: Thüringen Bratwurst, Döner, and its quiet parks.
Today, In a nutshell:
07:59: Arrive FRA; Train to Hbf, Train to Weimar, Arrive Weimar 11:50

17:00: Dinner, wandering
19:15: Meet friends at Warm Up.
Despite exhaustion I decided to check out another one of New York City’s famous gay bars, the View Bar, last night.
Monday is “Woof” night, where Daddies rule and Bud Light is only $2.
There were some positive reviews:
Max Scott’s bear party w/ DJs Joe X and Chauncey D cranking classics, plus porn star [...]
