    Sure, several times during my 3 years in Berlin. :tup:
    There is a similar pub in Hamburg as well, called "Rheinische Republik".

    Its "high season" for them at the moment as "Karneval/carnival" is reaching its climax at the End of February :D

    Hey! I've been to Berlin a few times and never went there. I wonder why my Berlin friends never took me there.

    I think it was during the reunification time that all those forced to move from Bonn needed something from home. Your Berlin friends likely had little sensitivity towards Rheinlanders.

    I believe he gained this notoriety within his days with Bayern and Wolfsburg. The folks at the "Bundesliga Fanatic" website seem to have a unique sense of humor, one that I am quite taken with. :)

    Plastik must be an adopted English word. Kunststoff is plastic... no?

    Handy is a term I thought was kind of a strange English word to use to define a mobile phone.

    I think its originally a Greek word or derived from Greek....? :cautious:
    Handy is weird, I know. And sometimes not easy to remind yourself that its a "mobile phone" and not a "Handy" when talking to native English speakers :rolleyes::D

    Sure I knew the meaning PackerFan71 and it somehow makes sense in a certain way but probably more than 90 % of us Germans dont have any idea. To them Handy is just another word for Mobiltelefon (mobile phone) ;)

    Us Americans have no idea HANDY meant a mobile phone. Never heard it called that before. We call it, "Cell" or "Mobile"

    You guys never heard the word "Cellphone"? Weird. That's practically all we call it, though some refer to it as a mobile phone.
