A Review of the Like A Berliner Book Launch Party

This was fun! On Friday we launched our new book Like A Berliner that we’ve been working on for the past 3 years with illustrator Sophia Halamoda and that is available to order now in our new online shop. We had the incredible honor of doing our party at Kantini in collaboration with Bikini Berlin. It was such a match made in heaven – the wonderful design of the place mixed with the cute illustrations of Sophia that we pasted all over the place.

To make the evening extra special we invited a couple of really unique performers to embody the spirit of our book and take our guests by the hand to make some memorable experiences. From Jennifer Aniston tarot readings by Esben Holk, to anti-confessions with Olympia Bukkakis, tactile sensations with crochet artist Anto Christ, fetish research with drag queen Purrja, and unsolicited plant advice by Miss Poppy Cox – there was something for everyone – and it was great fun. As a special treat, we invited The Darvish to give us a little belly dance, and boy did he deliver!

It was a pleasure for us to spoil our guests with food by Sons of Mana and drinks by our sponsors Russian Standard and Pilsner Urquell! Thanks to Teufel Audio we also had a great sound system for the event. We’re really grateful for their support, especially from Bikini Berlin. Without them, the evening would not have been so amazing.

We want to say thank you for everyone who came around to celebrate with us. It was such a cute night! Our friend Rafael Medina took some lovely photos for us that we want to share with you here.

If you want to get a hold of our new book Like A Berliner or the new calendars, stickers, and posters we’ve made you should have a look in our new webshop or visit us this coming weekend at the Heissa Holzmarkt Christmas market. We’ll have our own booth right by the entrance next to Säälchen.
