One of the benefits of the Welcome Berlin card we bought for the public transit was some discounts at some restaurants – we were able to take advantage of these several times. One of the options was at MacLaren’s Pub, a restaurant created after the pub of the same name from the tv show How I met your Mother. We had just recently finished watching the show together as a family, and the kids were very excited to go there. The 5 minute walk from the subway seemed longer in the wind and rain, but it was worth it. They had all sorts of cool memorabilia, and pretty good food and drinks too. Spencer and I wanted to suit up for the occasion, which meant that we both bought new ties at the mall of Berlin.
