Frankfurt! The NYC equivalent in Germany

Following and evening of full-filled festivities with some colleagues, I had the opportunity to do some sightseeing in Frankfurt on Sunday. Frankfurt is essentially known for its financial district but it really was a nice little place.

Mehdi's Brand New Porsche - Cayman S
Ten times better then his old Boxster...Amazing vehicle. He was kind enough to be my driver for the day and took me to all the hotspots in Frankfurt. It's a pretty small place so it took maybe 2 - 3 hours. It's like a miniature version of NYC. :)
We made our way back to work on Monday morning where I got a sense of what this beast could do on the autobahn. Incredible. I even managed to squeeze in a nice nap while cruising at about 150 MPH.

City hotspots...

Mehdi insisted I pose in front of this poster. Apparently it's some major event that Ernst & Young Germany sponsors every year.

Weekend in Frankfurt with the boys...

My weekend trip to Frankfurt was probably the most fun I've had since the beginning of my Germany experience. I think alot of it may have had to do with the fact that I actually had some company this time. The festivities started on Saturday night when we first had dinner at the Surf 'N Turf (arguably the best steak house in Germany) and ended with a very entertaining show at the Tigerpalast. The event was comprised of a very eclectic group of performers such as singers, contortionists, acrobats, jugglers, etc. It was an intimate venue which made for a very engaging experience.
The following photos were taken on April 12, 2008:

A few lessons learned about this magical steakhouse:
1. When consuming a slab of beef that is called a "lawyers cut", be prepared to have awful nightmares for at least 2 - 3 nights. This according to Dr. Farhadi.
2. Don't be afraid to order the "Ladies Cut", even if you're a man, as the name is quite deceiving.
3. It’s never a good idea to surreptitiously take photographs of random people at another table even when it's for a humorous reason.

Mehdi & I being silly...
