Paulaner is allowed to use the name Spezi
In one of our previous newsletters, we shared that Paulaner might have to rename their brand, you can dive into the news here. There was a court case and Paulaner won the Spezi brand. Woohooo!
In short, the Riegele Brewery from Augsburg wanted to renew their contract on the brand name Spezi and Paulaner didn’t want to pay the hefty premium and they won.

English Comedy In Munich - Medium Rare@Buena Vista
I just came back from Russell Peters show in Berlin, but English comedy is well worth it. Imho, it’s way better than German sarcasm ;)
Date and time: Tuesday, October 18, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
It’s FREE and at Buena Vista Bar - You can get the tickets here.
1 restaurant and cafe to try
While you are at Buena Vista for the comedy, the food there is also nice. But did I tell you I met my wife, the editor and scout of TMP, at Buena Vista? You get to laugh, eat good food, and perhaps meet the love of your life? Not a bad deal.
The cocktails, burritos, and fajitas are the ones to pick.
Oh! I forgot to tell you this Latino bar starts to have a club vibe after 11 p.m. :) Feels like you are in a bar in Colombia!
