Thu January 20 at 7:00 PM, Astra Kulturhaus
Revaler Straße 99, 10245 Berlin, Germany (Map & Directions)
Anyone want to get together between January 20th and 23rd in Berlin?
Godspeed You! Black Emperor is playing on the 20th, and I'll be heading up there to go to the show and stay the weekend. I would greatly enjoy drinking beer with strangers from the internet while I'm there.

Tried to buy tickets, seems to be absolutely impossible. They sold out everything.

I actually have a spare ticket, if anyone wants it.

Thanks, but I'll most probably go to Wien\Prague, it's much closer to me.
Please, let me know if you'll ever visit Budapest, will be happy to meet (:

Hey, I'm actually going to be at the godspeed concert, so I'm certainly down and up for a meetup.

First time I've seen this part of mefi though - lucky for extreme boredom today. I always check metatalk for meetups. Is it possible to advertise there as well, seeing as there isn't likely too many Berliners?

A godspeed meetup will be super. I've never been to Astra, though, is there a really obvious place to meet people there?

We're pretty much in the centre of hip berlin there, so it won't be hard to find a place. My local drag is Schlesisches Straße, which is about a 15 minute walk. The only problem is that most places will be packed on a thursday. I'll scope things out and figure out a good place, assuming no one else drops in with good suggestions.

Just so ya know, I'm meeting up tomorrow with the guys I'm going to the concert with. We'll sort out what our plans are and I'll let you (all?) know.

So, since cmonkey you and I seem to be the only ones doing this, I'll just message you my phone number and you can give me a ring when you want to come over to Schlesisches Tor. I'm planning on meeting up with my friends around seven near the u bahn.

Sounds good. Other than eating dinner at the world's greatest junk-food vegetarian restaurant, my evening is open, so I can meetup whenever.

Hey, thanks for coming out for a great night guys. Twas a shame we didn't reconnect at the end, but as for me, I was speechless and devestated by the end, and felt the need to amble home.

It was a fun night, but I was pretty wiped out by the end, too. I think I'm still deaf, actually. If any of you three wind up visiting the Free State of Bavaria (and you should - we have fantastic beer!), you're welcome to crash at my place.

It was nice meeting you guys. What a show!

Oooh, I used to live right there! The "Green Orient" chicken döner place in front of the Kaiser's is amazing. Forget the other one on the opposite corner, tho…
