Does anyone know exactly where the store is? My son looked for me when he was Berlin a few weeks ago but he couldn't find anything.

wendy,

i walked along Unter den Linden today, checking up on the souvenir stores.
i'm not sure i found jarkko's particular shop, but i did find a place where they sell the fwtmtwtb items:
bags(20€), cups(5€) and shirts(15-20€).

the shop is located at Unter den Linden, right left (is that correct? :?: - i mean: on the left hand's side of) madame tussauds.


greetings

Hello,
Does the meetup in Schleusenkrug remain relevant? Can I bring a guitar there? We could sing something. :)

Hi Berliners, I wondered if anyone can tell me whether it is possible to get food/beer inside the venue? We would love to meet up before but our flights arrive late in the afternoon (4.30 at schonefeld) so I do not think this will be possible and am thinking that maybe it would be best to head straight to the venue. Any advice welcome (we are staying at the marriott potsdamer plaza)

Any post concert meetups planned.......

thanks :D

They usually sell beverages and some food inside the Waldbühne.

@ Apolinary - there is no problem bringing a guitar to the pre meetup. It's an outdoor beergarden so singing should be ok. Not sure about taking a guitar into the venue though.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the pre concert meetup at the Schleusenkrug, see post above.

And for everyone who feels like having a nice drink and a chat after the gig:

There is a traditional Berlin Kneipe (pub) where we can meet after the gig - the Zwiebelfisch which is open every night until 6 am 8)

It can easily be reached after the gig because the stop is on the overground (S Bahn) coming from the venue. Get out at Savignyplatz and here is the link and map

Btw, a dear friend cannot go to the concert and all of a sudden we have a spare ticket for row 5, seat # 17. Face value or below. Let me know if you are interested.

Someone asked about a curfew. Actually there is quite a strict curfew at the Waldbuehne. It usually says 22.00 and can be prolonged until 22.30 in some cases. I was at a gig there in June and at 23.00 hours some grim looking officials in dark uniforms stood by the side of the stage and the artist hastily ended his performance. Whereas Berlin is a very liberal pro arts and music oriented city the housing around the Waldbuehne is very posh and the people living there fought for a strict curfew at the city's courts and won.

I will arrive in Berlin too late to join you at Schleusenkrug, so I will be happy to meet some of you just before the show by Glockenturm at 6.30pm. :D

So dissapointed that I couldn't make it to the meet-up... To many plans for one day and very bad luck - we were even late to the concert. :(
See you guys next time!
