Leipzig for the weekend - make it awesome for us

My husband and I are spending next weekend in Leipzig - arriving Friday evening leaving Sunday afternoon/evening, getting to and from by car. We are couchsurfing with people in the south of the city, and have very little in the way of plans other than seeing the train station (we werre last in Leipzig over a decade ago and the train station was closed due to a bomb threat, so we really want to see it this time). Places to visit, places to eat, cake/beer/meals not to be missed - all ideas gratefully recieved.

Should I be worried about racism in the East of Germany?

My 1 1/2 year old daughter and I will be spending some time in the former East Germany this summer. She is black, and I am white. How concerned should I be about racism? The three or four German people I've spoken to about racial attitudes in the former East have not been reassuring, so I am particularly interested in hearing from people of color who have lived in the region.

Places to drink in Munich that are NOT the typical beer hall?

Hi, I'm going to be in the Munich area over the holidays and I want to find a place to hang out and drink. I've lived there already and I'm over the typical Bavarian biergarten/hall scene. Ideally, I'm looking for somewhere cozy and student oriented, good music playing (indie, downtempo, alternative hip-hop etc) and good, natural lighting for people watching. 100 super bonus points if their beer of choice is Augustiner!!! Thank you!!!!!
