Just a quick post to say that my friend Susan, after years of struggling against the odds (she's a foreigner, she's a woman), has finally opened her business, TeaRoom Berlin. Once all the pieces are in place, it ought to take its place as one of the city's hot spots: the theme is China and England, two of the world's leading tea cultures, so she'll have authentic British pastries and authentic Chinese dim sum, as well as many kinds of tea, including bubble tea (heretofore unknown here as far as she can determine), and a modest bar serving, among other things, the latest hot drink the marteani.
Right now, though, she's only in the first stages, although things will be different in a week. Tomorrow, Saturday, there'll be a "soft opening," starting at around 7, with some freebies and some non-freebies, and, she hopes, lots of interesting people. To that end, I'm extending an invitation to readers of BerlinBites to show up and mingle, since I'm planning to be there. Tell your friends and come say hi.
TeaRoom Berlin is on Marienburger Str. right off Prenzlauer Allee, on the left hand side of the street next to the Japanese restaurant. See you there!
