Hello Berlin Toytowners,
Has anyone ever thought of having a regular group for folks planning to stay in Berlin indefinitely?
1. Most of the english-speakers I meet at Toytown events seem to be in Berlin either for just a few months, a year, etc., and it's somewhat annoying for people staying for the "long…
I don't live in Berlin, but I've owned a pub before so have some knowledge of the subject.
Can an Irish bar be profitable? Well...How long is a piece of string?

Reminds me of the guy hitch-hiking on the Autobahn.
A truck stops - and the driver asks the hitch-hiker where he's going.
"Oh, I'm heading towards Berlin."
"Ah, well, I can take you as far as Ludwigslust."
So, the hitchhiker gets in and away they go.
"Why are you going to…
If you are new in Berlin, or live in Berlin and are new to this forum, feel free to post a message here to introduce yourself to the rest of the TT community.

Please, the police union in Berlin is constantly clamoring for them. For widespread issue that is, the Berlin SEK is using 'em.
This was last raised publicly when Berlin police was filmed first shooting a man up to eight times in both legs and upper body, then pepperspraying him, then beating him with…

We've put our disco shoes back in the closet after an incredible first party on Saturday night. If you missed it, no worries, the next event will be in May or June.

I've had minor problems with Deutche Bank but I think they were more German banking procedures than DB things that I was running into. All that aside, I think this can be said about Deutche Bank: They're known around the world and have lots of connections. I don't think it's an amazing bank to…
