Most events free
mostly Pl. Grzybowski, Próżna Street
This weekend is the last chance to take part in the Singer Festival. If you love Jewish culture and/or want to know more about Jewish music, theatre, food and art, it’s a great opportunity. For the last time this summer pl. Grzybowski and its neighbouring streets (as well as other venues) will turn into an old- style Warsaw Jewish town, where you can learn to dance Jewish style (Sat. 5.30 p.m.), see the Nożyki Synagogue if you haven’t already (Sun 11:00 a.m.- a must-see!), or partake in culinary workshops and learn to cook yummy kosher food (Sun 11:00-13:00).Apart from that, there will be lots of cool outdoor concerts (check out Pardon, to tu! as well) and lectures on Jewish culture.

I’m always happy to hear about a new place that specialises in a certain dish or product. Like Meat Love, where they have four kinds of meat, put it in buns and make great sandwiches. Good product, trusted recipe- an ideal business model it seems. Alas! Not everyone thinks this way. Aneks Kulinarny‚s main vibe can be described as: „lack of enthusiasm”, from service to food. So, the lovely Executive Editor and I went there to try out their seafood, since they specialise in mussels and shrimp. We both ordered large plates of shrimp (ab. 35PLN each, small portions 10PLN cheaper): I went for the wine and garlic (and onion) and my friend had tomato and cinnamon. Their drink options are rather limited, so we ordered home-made lemonade (’twas ok) and tonic. We were the only customers, so the food arrived shortly, but… On a rather chilly evening I’d really enjoy a plate of steaming shrimp in essential broth, but neither was the dish hot, nor too aromatic.
In a small venue on the beautiful Mokotowska St. hundreds of different scents from all over the world sit in beautiful art-deco-modern-typography bottles designed by acknowledged Warsaw Lange&Lange graphic studio. You could spend your whole day there, traveling in this deep sensual world with the great owner and host with her guidance brought from the scent mecca – Grasse, France. And once you realize this experience costs less or the same as default „designer” perfume that everyone uses, you will never want to use anything different than the scent you designed yourself. Words like patchouli or coriander will never mean the same to you!
