Last night Erga and I went to the Gypsy Swing. We couldn't find it at first, when we finally got there I asked if there was smoking in the big hall. The guy said no. We went in after paying a "donation". Then of course the space was full of smoke. We went back, asked our donation back and left.
Apparently Berlin is still in the stone age. The same goes for the unconference. The only smoke-free space is in the back, without daylight. It is annoying. We spent some time in the smoky front, which is okay when you're drinking some alcohol, you don't really notice. But when we went out and then back in again at the gypsy place we couldn't take it at all.
