Things to do in Berlin, week of October 02, 2023!
Some of you might have seen my dishwasher adventure and how it messed up my pots and pans. But this mishap had a silver lining: it got me thinking about better cookware.
So, I went ahead and bought an Iron Cast pot, and so far, it's been a game-changer. On a lighter note, I've ditched the gym membership. Just lifting this pot is toning my arms! 💪
As always, I’ve dedicated several hours to curate the finest upcoming events in the city for you.
Here's a sneak peek of what's in store this week:
