Yelpiges x-mas @ Onkel Zozo



Frö-ho-liche Weihnacht bei Onkel Zozo. Im Dezember zog es das Berliner Elite Team zu Onkel Zozo nach Kreuzberg. Etwas versteckt am Heinrichplatz gelegen, erwartete unsere Elites eine komplett andere Welt, und das mitten in Berlin! Umgeben von flauschigen Monstern, Wuschelwesen beim Friseur, Herren mit großen Nasen und kleinen Mädchen beim Steinmetzen betreten die Yelper die Zozoville-Welt von Onkel Zozo, den zweiten Laden von Mateo und Johan. Ihr erster Geschäftsraum ist in Friedrichshain und nennt sich Zozoville. Unter der kreativen Fittiche von Mateo und Johan entstand ein liebevoller, kuscheliger und auch irgendwie schräger Laden, der zum Stöbern und Inspiration sammeln einlädt.

Die Yelper sammelten fleißig Ideen für Weihnachtsgeschenke und wurden hier für Mama, Schwester, Nichte, Schwiegermutter und Opa fündig. Nicole B überlegt: "Nehme ich das Steinmetz-Rotkäppchen, das gerade einen Wolf aus Stein meißelt, oder doch lieber den kleinen Cartoon-Jungen, dem ein Roboter gebaut wird?" Schwere Entscheidungen galt es also zu treffen! Aber was wäre ein weihnachtliches Event ohne Glühwein und Süßigkeiten? Eben, nichts! Mit Schokolade und Zucker en masse versorgte uns das Café Hilde, das absolut umwerfende Brownies backt. Mmmmh, lecker, mit Nüssen! Und damit uns so richtig warm ums Herz wird, wärmten wir unsere Finger und Mägen mit dem fruchtigen Punsch von Schwedenpunsch. 100% natürliche Fruchtsäfte nach einem altem schwedischen Rezept zubereitet, die wohl fruchtiger nicht schmecken könnte und aufgewärmt für eine wahre Geschmacksexplosion sorgten. Da ja nun auch wieder Erkältungszeit und damit auch für viele Medikamentenzeit ist, freuten sich die Gäste, dass es alkoholfreien Schwedenpunsch gab. Wer gesund und fit war, konnte den Punsch mit einem Schuss Amaretto beschwippsen.

Punsch,brownies, presents

Was wäre aber ein weihnachtliches Yelp-Event ohne Geschenke? Die gab es natürlich auch! Wir haben die Plastikbecher kurzerhand zu Losen umgebaut. Wer also zwischen seinen zwei Bechern einen Yelp-Button hatte, durfte sich am Geschenkeberg auf der oberen Etage bedienen. Hier galt natürlich das Motto: Die größte Verpackung beherbergt nicht immer das größte Geschenk. Mateo und Johan waren sehr großzügig mit den Yelpern: Es gab T-Shirts, Prints, ein Unikat war auch dabei, der große Wandkalender und Aufkleber. Viele glückliche Yelper, die bis über beide Ohren strahlten. Wer keinen Button abbekam und sich somit nicht am Geschenke-Stapel eindecken konnte, konnte sich durch den Laden stöbern und die relativ günstigen Prints noch erstehen, denn keiner wollte diesen schrägen Laden mit leeren Händen verlassen… und keiner Tat es!

Das Unikat landete übrigens in Mason Ds Händen: Ein Bild von einem angelnden Monster, das in einem Boot mitten auf einem Teich sitzt. Das Bild, das noch kurz vor dem Event entstand, wäre bei niemanden anders als Mason besser aufgehoben gewesen: "Ich studiere Fische!" strahlt Mason beim Anblick des Bildes über beide Ohren.

Ein ruhiger Abend, der uns herrlich vom Weihnachsstress abschalten ließ mit weihnachtlicher Musik, Gebäck und Schwedenpunsch. Ein riesengroßes Dankeschön gilt zuallererst Mateo und Johan von Onkel Zozo, ohne die dieses Event nicht möglich gewesen wäre. Die beiden Künstler aus den USA und Niederlanden könnt ihr übrigens regelmäßig auf Flohmärkten und in ihren beiden Geschäften treffen. Vielen Dank für eure großzügigen Geschenke, die interessanten Unterhaltungen und eure Unterstützung schon beim Aufbau. Ein weitere Dank geht an Tina und MJ vom Café Hilde, die uns leckere Brownies backten. Manch ein Yelper log sogar ganz dreist, dass die leckeren Teilchen gar nicht schmeckten… natürlich nur, um mehr für sich allein zu haben. Im Cafe Hilde gibt es übrigens auch eine große Tee-Auswahl, Mittagessen und Frühstück. Zum Schluss bedanke ich mich noch herzlich bei Schwedenpunsch, die uns mit dem herrlich fruchtigen Punsch versorgten und damit auch die alkoholfreien Yelper glücklich machten. Schwedenpunsch gibt es noch bis zum 22. Dezember auf dem Lucia Weihnachtsmarkt in der Kulturbrauerei. Der Stand mit dem großen gelben Schirm versorgt euch mit Schwedenpunsch.

Die Bilder des fantastischen Abends findet ihr hier und eure Bewertung hinterlasst ihr hier. Wir hören und sehen uns im neuen Jahr wieder. und nicht vergessen: Ihr könnt uns auch auf Facebook und Twitter folgen! Ich wünsche euch allen ein frohes Fest und vorab einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr!

'Tis the season to be jolly falalalalalalala… In December the Berlin Elite Squad found its way to Onkel Zozo in Kreuzberg. A little bit hidden at Heinrichplatz the Yelpers dove into the wonderland of Zozoville in Onkel Zozo. A world in which fluffy monsters, furry creatures at the hairdressers, men with giant noses and Little Riding Hood creating her own wolf made from stone. While Onkel Zozo is the second, yet bigger shop of Mateo and Johan, their first shop Zozoville is located in Friedrichshain. Onkel Zozo used to be a white, cold box-like shop, which under the creative influence of Mateo and Johan turned into a fabulous, warm, welcoming paradise for creatures of all kinds.

Shop Yelper

The most difficult part of the evening? That was certainly trying to decide on one, two, or three or more of the prints. Käthe F is picking a picture: "This one is clearly going into my office!" On it is a creature in suspenders and above its head it says "Casual Friday". Well and how could this be a cosy evenign without the right amount of sugar and hot beverages: Café Hilde took care of our sweet tooth by giving us the most amazing brownies one can get in Berlin. Really rich, full of chocolate, sugar and nuts! Ok, a brownie only occupies one hand, so the other hand can be filled with a cup of hot punch, or to be more accurate: Schwedenpunsch. 100% fruitjuice which are prepared after an old Swedish recipe. Especially since a lot of people are struggling with colds right now and counteract with drugs, the Yelpers were happy to hear, that Schwedenpunsch is non-alcoholic. The healthy ones among us just spiced up their punch with Amaretto.

Yelpers

Since this was a christmas-sy evening, we of course had presents. Mateo and Johan hand-picked the presents, which went into a pile of boxes on the top floor of the shop. Some lucky Yelpers, that found a button in between their two cups were the chosen ones to pick a box from the pile. And of course we followed the rule: The biggest box does not always hold the most precious present. While Lennart chose one of the smaller boxes, he found a note in it, which made him squeek in joy: "You get a 2012 Kalendarium from Mateo, Johan and Yelp!" Hooray and congrats. The other presents were not less amazing: T-Shirts, buttons, sticker and prints (one of which is one of a kind and was created right before the event). Mason D was the lucky winner of the one of a kind sketch, which showed a weird creature, sitting in a boat and fishing. "You know what?! I study fish." Mason D beamed all over his face. Well that is what we call match-making (by coincidence)!

Presents

First of all I would like to thank Mateo and Johan for opening Onkel Zozo to us and being amazing hosts. Thank you for the help and for taking your time for this evening, for the great chats and for letting us into your Zozoville-World. Both in their shop in Kreuzberg and in Zozoville in Friedrichshain as well as on fleamarkets you can meet those two incredible artists from USA and the Netherlands. Next I would like to thank Tina and MJ from Cafe Hilde for baking those amazing brownies. They also offer a wide selection of tea, breakfast and lunch. On certain occasions guests can also participate in their evening filled with music, films and book-session! last but not least i would like to thank Schwedenpunsch for providing us with this exceptional punch. Until 22nd December you still have the chance to drink and buy Schwedenpunsch at the Lucia Christmasmarket in Kulturbrauerei.

The pictures of this fabulous evening are to be found here and if you liked the event please leave your review here. And as usual you can find us on Facebook and give us your "like" and you can follow us on Twitter. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
