Off-Topic: Mixology / Amano Hotel

Great evening yesterday at the Mixology Birthday Party, got home quite late. Tonite are the Mixology Bar Awards 2012; I’ll be at the Amano Hotel Embassy thing to watch the awards ceremony (which takes places in the Ritz-Carlton on Potsdamer Platz) live on screen. Looking forward to seeing who wins best bar of the year!

Off-Topic: 10 Jahre Mixology!

This has nothing to do with any of my freelance projects but I’m dead excited anyway: On Sunday evening one of my favourite trade magazines ever – Mixology! – is celebrating its 10 year anniversary at the newly opened Rocco & Sanny Bar on Friedrichstrasse.

I’m on the guest list (hooray!) since I’m a subscriber….! Mixology is the biggest German trade mag about the cocktail, bartending and spirits industry in Germany, check it out: Mixology website.
