Things to do in Berlin, week of July 24, 2023!
👩❤️👨 Please read if you are single!
Are you flying solo, already taken, or somewhere in between? I've heard that navigating the dating scene in Berlin can be quite the challenge. I can't help but notice all the wonderful single folks around me who are struggling to find their perfect match. It's surprising because most of them are real catches in their own unique ways, and they genuinely want a long-term relationship, but it's just not falling into place for them.
Sure, apps like Tinder and Bumble are useful for meeting new people, but there's something missing – that old-school charm of connecting and falling head over heels (I know there are exceptions with apps!). So, why are things not working out as they should? I'm eager to tackle this problem!
However, before I dive into action, I'd like to gather some insights from you, my subscribers. If you're single, living in Berlin, actively seeking a serious relationship, and ready to step out of your comfort zone to meet your potential life partner, then I'd love to hear from you. I wanna know if Berlin Events Weekly can come up with a solution for this challenge, how many of you would be interested in participating?
Let's see if we can make a difference together ❤️!

The exhibition "Isa Genzken: 75/75" at the Neue Nationalgalerie celebrates the German artist's 75th birthday with 75 sculptures spanning her career from the 1970s to today. Drawing inspiration from real-life elements such as windows and figurines, Genzken transforms and distorts them, creating her own distinct reality and formal language. Her profound explorations extend beyond the superficial, employing her own life experiences and biography, as well as the broader concept of the individual, to question and challenge the ideals of Western society and its prevailing forms of production.

Restaurant of the week:
The restaurant has an upscale ambiance with an Israeli influence. The food is good, but some may question whether it justifies the higher price. It's a great spot to visit with colleagues or when your parents are in town. Additionally, they have another restaurant called "Mezze by MontRaw," which is a relaxed gastropub featuring a patio. They serve Mediterranean shared plates along with a selection of wine and cocktails.
