Dear friends

Ron Orp’s Mail is available as an app now. I searched my mind and came up with a few practical functions which are also interesting if you’re on the road. For example you can take pictures with your iphone and upload them directly into the urban city trip section – so that my wish for more photos might become true! The app is available in German, French, English and Portuguese accordingly to the city you choose. You can download it here.
Give my love to the city, Ron

Electric futureland

As we all know the predicted future of transportation is a little behind schedule. The personal jetpacks and teleportation devices are still in development alongside the hover-car but there are companies whose ideas are bringing the real future closer everyday. The Hub is hosting two of these companies – Tesla Motors and Flyerelektrovelo – who will present their company stories as well as taking questions and giving advice to any upcoming social entrepreneurs. If you do invent something, call it the Ronorpatron – it’ll make me happy.
Thursday 8 pm, The Hub

I heart art

Owning original art is normally reserved for the rich or the daringly criminal but Station21 is giving you the chance to own an original piece without being either. 26 artists from around Switzerland are being gathered for an art show under the name Himmelwärts 10 (Skywards 10) where you have the opportunity to talk directly with the artists and, if the mood grabs you, to also buy the art. Prices range from 1 to 199 francs.
Friday 6 pm & Saturday 12 pm, Station21

Latin label

Cómeme is a new electro-dance record label from South America founded by Matias Aguayo and Gary Pimiento. They will be focused mainly on South American artists but are happy to colaborate with any Europeans biten by the Cómeme bug. See what the new label has to offer as they perform a live set with percussionists and a backing vocalist from London at Zukunft.
And if you need a little easy food, music and shopping before the South Americans rock your world then the Nacht Markt at Kasernanareal is back again.
Friday 7 pm, Kasernanareal
Friday 12 am, Zukunft

Gyrate and skate

With December comes the ice but also the skating. The second Zurich Ice Disco is happening at the Dolder Ice Rink this weekend. No need to worry about falling over as the disco, soul and electro beats will keep you upright and flowing along all night. The night has some great djs as well as a live show by Les Retardieux. The after-party is happening at Plaza Club with Kraak & Smaak leading the dj charge.  Just remember, the sliding backwards will be a lot harder and less cooler at the Plaza then the Dolder.
Saturday 5 pm, Dolder Ice Rink
Saturday 11 pm , Plaza Club

Christmas plaza

If you want to get away from the Bahnhofstrasse Christmas crush then get down to the Plaza Club, which is transforming itself into an urban Christmas village for the week leading up to Christmas. Not only confined to the club but also the streets surrounding it, you will find stalls from some of the local boutiques and they have also planned a party program for each day. As you’ve been good readers this year I have some special surprise gifts to give away from Meine Garderobe and Cloud8, two of the labels at the market.
e-mail me.
Sunday-Friday 11.30 am, Plaza Club

Free jazz

This Monday, jazz singer Sophia Bastian sings at Kaufleuten. As a thank you to everyone who visited the club, lounge and/or restaurant this year, the concert is for free. Make sure you get there on time.
Monday 8 pm, Kaufleuten

Good to know

Each year it’s the same game. December comes around and everyone acts surprised that only a few weeks are left until the holidays. The workload increases and the inner city is ruled by shoppers. And there are so many of them. Now, Christmas is only one week away and of course you haven’t had time to do your present shopping. But don’t get scared. You don’t have to throw yourself into the  crowds at Bahnhofstrasse. In my latest digital magazine I put together gift ideas so you can pick the missing presents at home. Unfortunately, amongst the Christmas frenzy I wasn’t able to translate it into English. Sorry about that! But what is it what they say? A picture speaks a thousand words.

Eating: Over the moon

Ron’s assistant: You look happy…
Ron: I just had a great lunch!
Ron’s assistant: So you’re drunk?
Ron: No, great food! At Hin & Weg. It’s a catering and take- away place between Schmiede Wiedikon and Goldbrunnenplatz that cooks so tasty that I’d like to book them as my personal catering service!
Hin & Weg, Birmensdorferstrasse 171, Zurich

Across Switzerland

And yet I’m telling you about another publication which is in German only: Transhelvetica. Why? Because it’s new and because it’s produced in Zurich. And also because you might have German speaking friends or colleagues for which you’re searching for the perfect gift. (Because it's also really nice!)  An annual subscription (6 issues) is only 45 francs.

Music map of Manhattan

Flavorwire puts it so well that I’ll quote:  “If you’re sick of hearing Frank Sinatra tell you that he wants to be a part of it, or Alicia Keys gushing about how these streets will make you feel brand new, then rejoice – here’s an alternative musical history of the Big Apple.”  So have a look and wander through the streets that wrote music history.

Christmas time is here again and just as Santa readies his reindeers, dons his red suit and packs his sack full of toys, I too will be avoiding real work over the next two weeks. The next newsletter you'll receive from me will be in 2015 but I've included some New Year’s parties in this one for those that will miss me.
Give my love to the city and a happy New Year to everyone, Ron

Add to favourit  Open Air: Christmas flames
 
Christmas always brings out the romantic Ronster in me. After all, isn’t love the greatest gift of all? (or it would be, if it weren’t for this excellent blue Snuggie. Hint, hint Santa). Anyway, if you wander down to Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke, this evening you can take part in the Zürich Christmas tradition of Lichterschwimmen, where hundreds of people will be releasing little boats filled with candles into the Limmat. Hot punch and sweet treats will also be on hand as you gaze dreamily into the flickering river.
Thursday  5 pm – 7 pm, Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke

Add to favourit  Stage: Vaudeville vandals
 
The Tiger Lilies have the air of a vaudeville act that could have been performing in an old pub, on a dark and foggy London street, just as Jack the Ripper was having his dastardly way in the shadows. They mix music hall and vaudeville with a punk attitude and ghoulish humour that will make you laugh, while at the same time wondering if you should be laughing at all. Their new show, The Very Worst of The Tiger Lilies, is at Theater Rigiblick on Friday.
Friday 8 pm, Theater Rigiblick
 
Add to favourit  Cinema: Angel’s wings
 
If, despite the tinsel, the glittering lights and queuing up to buy presents, you still haven’t been fully embraced by the Christmas spirit, might Dr Ron recommend a shot of his finest, Grade A, pure-cut never-fails remedy. On Saturday and Sunday, Film Podium will be showing Frank Capra’s Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life. If you’ve never seen the film before then prepare to leave the cinema with your heart all aglow and a glisten in your eye. If you have seen it, then go renew your faith in your fellow man and repeat after me, “Attaboy, Clarence!”
Saturday 8.45 pm, Sunday 2.30 pm, Film Podium
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Winter legends
 
When the legends of El Dorado were first whispered, about that mysteries and lost city of gold in the Andes mountains, could they ever have thought that a bar in Zurich, coincidentally named Eldorado, would also contain a plethora of shiny riches and treasures, but would be infinitely more locatable. Probably not. Either way, the nearly unlimited number of beers (101, actually) they offer would be temptation enough for the meekest of explorers but this Sunday they are also hosting the Winter Unplugged Music Festival, where a nearly unlimited number of performers (5, actually) will be showcasing their acoustic skills from the haunting sounds of Me.Man.Machine to the poetic heartbreak of Faber.
Sunday 7 pm, Eldorado

Add to favourit  Preview 1: Double-bill
 

Christmas always brings out the big softy in me, although that may also be the Glühwein working it's wily magic, so I was happy to see that Xenix are showing an open-air (yes, outside) double-bill on Christmas Eve (Wednesday). The first is the Buster Keaton classic silent comedy, The General, where our hero tries to get back the two loves of his life: his bride and his locomotive (not necessarily in that order). Blankets will be available but bring your own to guarantee one. The second movie is screened indoors: In «Barbarella» Jane Fond's sex-bomb tries to save the world, to do this she has to face some unique adventures first. First film starts at 6.30 pm, second at 9 pm.
Merry Christmas!

Gian has a dream. At present he is in Vietnam, where he helps kids in foster home. By the end of the year, he will return home, but before he leaves he would like to give as many children as possible a Christmas present. For this he collects money on the crowdfunding-platform 100-days.net. He has seven days left to raise the rest of the money, so give him – and the kids in Ho Chi Minh City – a boost.
