Weds 9/28: Parts Unknown: Cologne, Germany (Season 7, Episode 7)
Celebrate the end of Oktoberfest and National Drink Beer Day properly by cracking open something special and watching (or re-watching) expert journeyman Anthony Bourdain visit the land of sausage and suds, Cologne, Germany, for his CNN show Parts Unknown. “This city charms you,” he says during the narration. “It takes you in. It makes you feel welcome." Though there is plenty of eating and drinking, Bourdain analyzes more than just the food scene this episode, discussing the city’s position as a refuge for over a million Syrians fleeing the threat of ISIS activities in their homeland.
