With summery weather still on, you wanna take the opportunity to make a memorable, warm first date.
Intrigued by the title of this event-related post? Good. I’ll explain: Maike Steuer is in the process of transforming the site at Georg-Schumann-Str. 206 into an “intercultural cafe by September.” She invites you to come by Saturday, May 16, to check out the place, hang out, eat, chat and listen to some literature. Nice, cosy way to spend a springtime Saturday afternoon…
I once met a guy who was learning in all possible languages the sentence “I am a strawberry, eat me!” Then when he met people from a specific nationality, he would say it in their language with a perfect accent. He said it was a nice ice breaker. I am not sure how successful it has been. Anyway, I thought of it as a nice title for my first recipe here in this blog.
Old links to our Leipzig on the other side of the world. But oh the beer…
What are you doing this Friday, May 15? Will you be in Leipzig? If you feel up to it, come ’round to Uptown Coffee Bar, Riemannstr. 44 (by Flowerpower off Karl Liebknecht Str.), at 5 p.m. Two of my fellow columnists – Stewart Tunnicliff (#MoviesAndTV) and Christijan Robert Broerse (#Literature) – and I will be reading stories and poetry there. The main thread is a special place in each of our respective lives that’s been left but not left behind, because it’s still very present in our minds and creative musings.
Room to hear my thoughts
A cup of joe to warm me
Chat with a good book
