Tweed Ride Hamburg 2018

On Father’s Day I had the pleasure to join this Charity Bicycle Rally. A crowd of over 100 people gathered in front of the Le Velo Café, located in the magnificent menswear store Ladage & Oelke to show their passion for vintage handmade quality products, protest for better traffic conditions in Hamburg and raise money for the charity organization Westwind, to supply free bikes for refugees. After a nice ride through town, the tour ended at Jenischpark with a decent picnic. Special thanks go out to Clubkinder e.V. for the organization of this enchanting event. See you all again next year.

Clean cut

Last week I had the pleasure to be invited to Captain’s Barbershop in Duesseldorf. Shave and haircut turned out to be the best ones I have ever experienced so far. Relaxed atmosphere, nice drinks and very good music made the treatment a fantastic experience. Ahmed and his team really know how to use their scissors-highly recommended.

Don’t worry, i will give you some father’s day cocktail recipes in a coupe of days, but today I would like to focus on gifts that might need some days of preparation. So please don’t come up with the excuse, you did not have the time to grab something nice for your old man.

E(gg)xtreme drinking

Taking a closer look  at the quite german habit of drinking „Eierlikör“ during easter holidays. The drink originally was found in the 17th century by European conquerors in basil. The recipe of „Abacate“ contained avocados, sugar and rum and was named „Advocaat“ by the europeans. They brought it back to the old world, where they had to change to main ingredient, due to the lack of avocados. They used yolk and the „Eierlikör“ was born, which is more or les similar to internationally more common eggnog.
