Come Celebrate Berlin’s 6th Anniversary

Just a part of the city; you'll want to explore!

Just a part of the city; you’ll want to explore!

The 1920s Berlin Project, that is.  “Frau” Jo Yardley founded the Project back in 2009, and it’s done little but get bigger and better and richer ever since.  They even hold a riot once a year — a re-enactment of the May 1929 political riot that pretty much closed the streets of RL Berlin for three days.  Weekly tea dances and tango sessions, and even a very infamous cabaret offer entertainment, and classes are held on various topics at various times.

Jo and the “permanent” Residents of the Project are planning six days of celebration, and the public is invited.  You can find out the schedule, and get a SLurl, at Jo’s blog.  If you have not been there before, please note that this region operates under a set dress code:  1920s dress for both men and women, no Nazi uniforms or insignia allowed, and they do encourage a more realistically-sized avatar.  (I’d suggest you grab a free copy of the Realistically Proportioned Avatar near the entrance to the Project.)  Take the train to the Alexanderplatz Bahnhof, and after that join in the celebrations, or walk about and discover things at your leisure.  You may be interested in the afternoon coffee hour at Der Keller, which is a little hidey-hole of a bar and biergarten down in the “bad side of town.”  (It’s hard to find, so follow these directions:  from the Unter den Linden, facing the Brandenburg Gate, turn right onto the street running beside the Babylon Cinema and the Automaten.  Follow this until you get to the bakery, then go down the short alley to its left, and down the ramp to the next street.  Walk under the wooden frame; look right and down and you’ll find the door to Der Keller Tanzlokal.  The coffee hour, with streamed period music, starts around 2:00 SLT.)

Enjoy!
