Summer Kitchen Hours
We’re happy to announce our extended summer kitchen hours are now in effect. Stop in for a late nite bite until 9pm, and we’ll be announcing additional overall summer hours soon! As usual, Berlin is open Monday-Friday’s at 6am-9pm and 7am-9pm on the weekends.
Get Yer Bocce On
You may have noticed a long, rectangular ‘box’ just outside our front door. No, it’s not an oversized litter box but rather, our new Bocce Ball Court!
Simply put, a small ball (“pallino”) is thrown onto the court and players then bowl larger balls towards it to see who can get the closest. Bocce has its roots in Egypt and the game made its way to Greece and then to Rome, where Romans allegedly played the game with coconuts. In the 1700s, one of the first bocce ball fields appeared in the U.S. and even George Washington had a court at his Mount Vernon home.
Our court is available to customers FREE… just ask a server or inquire at the front counter for the Bocce Set, Rules & a scoring set and challenge your friends. We look forward to some fun competitions with prizes in the near future.
Live @ Fingerprints
Our neighbors at Fingerprints have a couple of upcoming in-stores this month:
AM & Shawn Lee – Tues., June 11th 7:00pm
Born from a mutual love of the sounds of 60s and 70s (soft-psyche, dancey Italian soundtracks (read: porn soundtracks), Library Recordings, Funk, Tropicalia, and the glorious tones of an analogue synthesizer.
3OH!3 – Tues., June 18th 6:00pm
Known as much for their live show as they are for their mix of hip-hop, electro, and party all the time rhymes, 3OH!3 are a raucous and rowdy good time, just looking for a place to happen. This time, we’re very pleased to announce, they’ve found a spot here at the shop.
