A quick look at the gig guide for Berlin tells me there's a quiz night on tonight. Sounds like fun. I presume I'll be able to get on a team.
But I've still got a few random photos. Some blokes sitting outside a Turkish take-away shop having a game of cards. Not really possible in Hobart because it's always so windy.
But what do we have here? Fags, beer and cards... what more could you ask for? Presumably they'll be asking for health in a few years time.
I had to change trains here just about every time I went anywhere. So I've posted a pic of the station name. Looks more like the wall of an old-fashioned pub in Hobart.
Opposite the station at my final destination. Pretty cute.
After a bit of a walk I finally found the quiz night pub. Guess what? No-one's turned up. There usually is quiz night here, but the boss's partner is on holiday so it's been cancelled this week as she says she can't be quiz-master and pour drinks as well. What a pity. She said I would have had no trouble getting on a team.
Quite nice out the back too. A few people eating, a piano. Looks a lot more intimate than the Republic quiz night venue too.
And a last shot of the pub itself.
After a bit of a chat I pushed off again. Back past the station.
That gave me a chance to check out the cute pub opposite. Tiny inside but with some snack food. Pork fat to smear on bread, that sort of thing. Doesn't sound so good but it goes well with alcohol.
A sign on the door announced no toilet;. Sounds rather unlikely... do people nip across the road to the station for a leak?
Usual line-up of locals inside. I think there were three dogs in this pub. Perhaps the sign at the door was meant for them?
Curry 36. I think this is quite a famous late night food spot. In fact Curry-Wurst is a bit of a Berlin institution. You see it all over the place. It doesn't really say much for the taste-buds of the average German though.
If you boiled some sausages then made up a sauce by watering down some tomato sauce and heating it for a while, then added some curry powder - then poured that over the sausage - I think you'd have Curry Wurst.
But it seems to be more popular than pizza!
