    Are we imagining things, or is there a special kind of brotherhood between men with beards? Which are becoming more and more as we speak. In order to examine the trend, we gathered the creators of the new brand for beard oil - Bradabrat - Vladimir Balkanov and Kiril Balkanov, with our most bearded friend, Pavel Naydenov, and left them to talk about the beard and its lifestyle. Like any good story, this also starts two generations ago...

    The quest for a good relaxation on the weekend can be complicated, if you're not ready to travel. Or so we thought, before we found out that in the heart of Sofia, on a busy boulevard is the place where it is so easy to blissfully relax. We chose four experiences in Center Mandala - two by two for a complete detox from the city.

    Some time ago a colleague went out in a lunch break and came back with a new tattoo. That's how we first felt the needle of Momchil Genov. One afternoon we went to visit his studio and while upstairs someone's arm was becoming a bear, we  learned a few important things - Momchil loves boxing, Cyrillic, and dogs (yes, the latter means that he would never put ink on his pitbull Mayday Mayday).

    Neva Balnikova's jewellery can be spotted immediately. The raw graphic jewels are a perfect match for the bold. We selected a few man's bracelets and rings that have just left her studio.

    They are an uncommon blood type. They manage to fight not for themselves, but for the others. They were selected in the chart of Darik radio 40 until 40 for young leaders who are running to the future and create meaningful projects. Their own one is TimeHeroes.org - a platform for volunteering which gathers good causes at one place and on a click away. We met Yana Burer Tavanie and Pavel Kunchev to talk about the times. And heroes. And in between, we learned how to make the best crumbled eggs and what is the power of twitter.
  • 100 Beers

    How two boys start 100beers.bg? The idea is born in 2013, when, after tasting yet another interesting beer, Ristislav decides that it is high time Sofia also had a place that offers a wide selection of beers. A month later, 100beers.bg is a fact - thanks to the web developer Vestimir, who joins the enterprise. Another year rolls by and their beers number way over 100 and the shop has two offline addresses - 26 Yurii Venelin Str. and 31 Zlatovrah Str. in Sofia.

    We've known the designer Mila Ateva for a long time. She's known the man by her side, Vasil Poleganov, a long time. The Sassa Bjorg brand is a yet another thread that binds them together. Their work brings them everyday pleasure and makes way for a common future.

    This New Year's kick-off was a good one - we struck a new friendship with people who can tell a good building from a bad one. And we met over a glass of wine and sweets. Not bad at all!

    The biggest wine exhibit in the country Divino Taste is this weekend. The spotlight is on the Bulgarian brands. This gave us enough reason to meet up with one of the owners of Grape Central, the wine place in Sofia, Efrosiya Blagoeva, over a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.
    The talk gave us food for thought and made us remember at least three things. To always taste before we drink, to share our wine if we want to feel closer to people and when in Rome to do as the Romans do - drink Proseco!

    If you happen to pass by Lyuben Karavelov Str., make sure to slacken your pace at number 7. Chekmedzhe (or Drawer) is the warmest place in town - because of its home-made drinks, the friendly encounters and the fluffy knitwear made by two girls with a subtle taste for life.

    Four years he almost missed the bus for Germany. The driver wouldn't let him get on because of the army of cartoon look-likes of the Yeti monster that he carried with him. "Better try and hitchhike a truck," the sulky driver advised him. Yet, with silent persistence, Peter managed to secure himself a seat (though not by the window) and to get on time for one of the biggest sports exhibits in the world, IPSO Munich - the venue where he showcased his latest invention -  the Small Foot inflatable snowshoes.

    Adelina has the knack to create micro societies. These are cozy places for alternative people that have always had  the burning need to belong to a place of "their own". She was the mastermind behind Radio Cafe for a couple of years. Now Adelina Kasparyanova has created a new city hub - the conceptual shop Stari Gradski (Urban Retro) where her personal taste continues to inspire us.
