Friday Beer Garden
We're at a different beer garden, beer cellar, or pub each Friday. See the list of past locations. Everyone is welcome to turn up. If you like beer and a good laugh, come along! You can invite anyone too. If you don't know anyone there, contact me to find out what or who to look out for.…
Cross-country skiing is a great way to stay fit and enjoy the Alps in winter. Tours take place every Sunday during the season. We follow groomed, signposted trails and use the "classic" (diagonal) style trails. We stop along the way for lunch in a restaurant. Transport is normally by train.
Some of our tours…

is the only Dr Oetker one I will use - the others do not actually contain vanilla.
You'll get pods in most bigger supermarkets usually on the herb & spice racks, either in a tub or clear glass tube. Kaufhof/Hertie and the like also stock them in their Feinkost departments.
Vanilla pod = Vanilleschoten
They look all…
I realize this isn't terribly helpful to your wife at the moment but I'd sincerely hesitate before calling this a "scam"--who failed to get the receipt? Your wife. Therefore she is at least 50% responsible for the fact that she now has a non-activated gift card and no proof of payment.
As with anything…
Every Wednesday evening at an Indian restaurant in Munich. Location varies each week.
Curry night is not just about having good food but also about having great time and lots of fun. The cultural diversity of people who are regularly part of this event is as colorful as the curry itself with all its different flavors and…
Ermh, you do know that Grundschule in Bavaria is only 4 years? Just checking, since it's 6 years in Berlin.
By my calculation, when you move to Munich in Autumn 2012, your eldest will enter 4th grade.
This means that the decision which higher school she is allowed to attend will be taken in April 2013, just 7.5…
Erm, yes UrbanAngel. I do happen to know someone else who has been there. These little fellas...
They had a complimentary demonstration pedicure at "Feelgood" couple of weeks ago. And it did indeed feel good.
By the way, sk8rgrl mentioned previously that Krista speaks "awesome English". Well, Krista…
The Munich Hash House Harriers is a social club where the group activities are centered around runs in the countryside and drinking beer. The events happen every second Saturday throughout the year. In addition there are special events such as Oktoberfest and Christmas parties.

Munich is a great place for cycling tours, either within the city itself with a Biergarten stop or outside of town in the Bavarian countryside.
One tour is normally planned each weekend by a dedicated team during a season which starts mid-March and ends with the first snows of December. This is social cycling, not a sport.…
Update case started today, I gave my testimony (as did two doctors on the state of my assailants mental health.) They confiscated two sikh knives and have banned him from carrying weapons. He now has until Thursday to provide proof that he has accomomdation and a job (his ex employer has said that he will take him on again)…
As reported last year, the underground passage above the U2 (EDIT- not including the one above the S-bahn lines) is getting a facelift costing 20 Million Euro.
The project became urgent and necessary as the join between the S-Bahn passage and the U-Bahn passage is now faulty and is leaking.
Seeing as they are tackling…

a couple of years ago we had a Sushi Night, then I moved away, then I came back and therefore will try my luck at organizing something again.
The sushi night is always on the first Tuesday of the month. I'll post here with our choice of restaurant, you add your name to the list if you wish to join.
This Photography Club meets every two weeks on Tuesday evenings for a shoot around the city and then discussion about the shoot and socializing at a local bar/cafe. The start time for the bi-weekly meeting will vary so keep an eye on the header for location, time, and date information.
We welcome all skill levels. Some…
Having given up on that bloke who claimed to have Wyke Farms Vintage and with a craving for cheddar in these wintry days, I scoured Munich for cheese-snob cheddar, by which I do not mean Cathedral Shitty.
The export market appears to be dominated by Coombe Castle, who do distribute some excellent brands such as Glastonbury…
