You’ll have to excuse the lack of posting around here lately – for various reasons the past few months have been some of the busiest I’ve ever experienced so sometimes Oh Gosh! has had to be pushed to the back burner. Things are starting to get back to normal though, and rest assured I’ve got lots of exciting stuff coming up over the next few months including some great new reviews, cocktails and videos.
I’ve just returned from Germany where I was attending BCB, the annual German bar show ran by the good folks of Mixology Magazine. As with last year it was a superb show, with a fantastic lineup of speakers including Anistatia Miller & Jared Brown, Charles Schumann, Hidetsugu Ueno, Angus Winchester and Peter Dorelli. If you were unable to make it, check Oh Gosh! TV next week for some highlights from the show
BCB has the good fortune of being located in Berlin, a city with one of the best bar scenes I’ve experienced and a fine place to get a cocktail. In between sipping drinks and listening to talks I managed to make it to some of Berlin’s best bars, camera in hand, and you can also expect to see the great bars Becketts Kopf, Lebsensstern and the beautiful new Stagger Lee (pictured below) on OGTV over the next few weeks.
Finally, I’ve been lucky enough to be nominated for a Foodbuzz Award along with my friends Marleigh and Michael, plus some guy called Jeffrey Morgenthaler who must be new to blogging or something because I don’t remember reading anything by him recently. It’s always nice to be nominated for an award, and even more so when my fellow nominees are some of my favourite blogs.
