Dear gentlemen, on Friday, my Porn Orp Party takes place. So you have a little bit of time left to grow a perfect porn moustache. Those who come with well groomed facial hair, get a drink for free. Ron's girlfriend: "Hey, and what about the girls?" Ron: "I never said that the moustache has to be real, and for flashy painted lips you'll get a drink anyway". Ron's girlfriend: "Ok, then I'll wear a porn moustache." Here some inspirations

Bern visiting
 
While many clubs are leaving us alone in the rain and take a summer break, Hive parties on. Neon, their regular Thursday night, celebrates the non existing summer with hot electro, indie dance and house beats by Radiorifle and Mickey Morris. Both are residents at the Bonsoir Club in Bern. Welcome guys, I hope you brought some sun with you.
Thursday 11 pm, Hive

Ten days left
 
In ten days, Seefeld-Razzia will close – to be renovated and turned into a grill restaurant. The cultural venue goes down with a bang and has a series of events over the next few days (like the Porn Orp Party on Friday). On Thursday there is an exhibition where several artists show the world their talent, amongst them Onur and Rafael. And the walls are still lined with the latest project by Kuss-Magazin
Thursday 6 pm, Seefeld-Razzia

PORN ORP PARTY
 
Ron's party was the first one to be held at Seefeld-Razzia and it will be the last one. To honour the buildings history – it used to be a sex cinema at one time, hence the black painted walls – I'll call it the Porn Orp Party. Quite clever I think. The party starts at 9.30 pm. Make sure you get there in time. Entry is for free and when it's full, it's full. The concert will start at 10.30 pm. Which band? That's a surprise! And for all of you, who don't have time – or the hair – to grow a moustache, I have three lovely Nekkish moustache necklaces to give away. Just send a message. If you win, you can pick it up at the party. See you there!
Friday 9.30 pm, Seefeld-Razzia
Pop-Up
 
Pop-Up galleries are a fix feature in London's art scene. Yves Slinka and Oskar Weiss want to make this happen for Zurich too. Therefore, they transformed a former print shop at Kochstrasse 1 into a temporary gallery. For one week they exhibit the works by Play Hunter – do you remember my favourite style hunter? - Rico Scagliola & Michael Meier, Valentina Vujovic and Tina Braegger. As it's still raining, I'm sure you'll find the time to stop by. 
From 23 July to 29 July, 12 pm to 6 pm, Kochstrasse 1
The future is bright...
 
The future is black. Zukunft spoils us with a great night in Saturday, with a guest from New York: Daniel Wang who fits into a niche between disco, Detroit and house and combines to a new sound. Three resident djs will then heat up the house properly with music for soul and body. But then, after the last beat, Zukunft closes for the summer. Is everyone leaving the sinking ship? Summer, where are you?
Saturday 11 pm, Zukunft

Achmed and Paul
 
Singer-songwriter meets tango at El Lokal this Monday. Both have a colourful past, based in the youth revolutions of their country. Paul Weixler was a legend in Zurich. And it took him 25 years to release his pop / blues album, which was launched in 2003. You probably won't understand the Swiss lyrics but you'll get his mix between I-love-the world and disillusioned wisdom. And if your heart doesn't ache yet, Achmed "El Tigre Tanguero" makes you long for a trip around the world with his heartbreaking songs.
Monday 8.20 pm, El Lokal
A park full of music
 
On Wednesdays, Bäckeranlage is the place to be if you like acoustic concerts. This week, with melodramatic pop by Euphròsina. If you listen carefully, you'll get to hear a few ironic and sometimes bloodthirsty stories by the three girls from Zurich. And the weather should be a bit better by the middle of the week as well.
Wednesday 8 pm, Bäckeranlage
Ron's gastro tip
 
My new neighbour L'Aperitivo del Leone welcomed me friendly with the speciality of the house – Italian wine and antipasti. Very tasty! If you walk down the steps you'll reach the grotto. In this cosy cellar environment – nope, not a contradiction – where you'll get to eat your main course. Lovers of Italian cuisine will find a new home here.

Looking for flatmate (city centre)

Hey there! I’m looking for a flatmate to search for an apartment with together in Zurich. I’m thinking city-centre, Kreis 3,4,5,6 with 3 rooms (2 bedrooms) with a budget around 2500-3000 CHF.
I’m 25, female, working full time with an adorable and very loving dog. I live in the city centre...

Reach for the beach

I know your holidays have not quite started yet and you’ll have to wait a little longer until you can lounge, sloth-like, on a beach. If you no longer stand the wait, then the rooftop of Parkhaus West is certainly less than a flight...

Add to favourit  Concert: City in the summer
 
If the idea of venturing into a hot, dark gig to get your musical fix doesn’t appeal to you as summer shines on outside, then Stadtsommer is here to save the day, or rather your evening. Six bands, with styles ranging from folk to electronica, will be playing live over the next couple of weekends in cool outdoor locations around town, and all are free. Tonight, experimental rock band Gletscher plays outside Helsinki. I'm also looking forward to seeing musical futurist Bruno Spoerri and Crew play in the courtyard of Restaurant Riethalle and the folk of Mantel & Kantelinen at Platzspitz
Thursday 9 pm, Gletscher, outside Helsinki, Thur - Sat (24th-26th Jul & 31st Jul-1st Aug), various times & locations
 
Add to favourit  Eating: Table tour
 
The Tour de France will be finishing this Sunday, and while riding 200km a day, often up and down mountains, clad in lycra is clearly some people’s idea of fun, I much prefer the Tour de France that Kulturmarkt are offering. This Friday you can take a culinary tour of various regions of France, with the chance to eat Forest Snails, Bouillabaisse, Coq au Bordeaux and Tarte Tatin. The only question will be, do you exert yourself with a bike ride to the French feast or take the tram. Either way, lycra will be optional. To reserve, you can email restaurant@kulturmarkt.ch or call 044 454 1015.
Friday 6.30pm, Kulturmarkt, CHF 35 per person
 
Add to favourit  Party: Alt dj
 
A couple of years ago alt-J released their debut album, An Awesome Wave, which was full of folky electronica, dubstep rhythms, vocal harmonies and tunes that could get a festival field singing along. With their new album due for release soon, they’ve been invited to dj at the Mad Katz Sommerparty in Exil on Saturday night. If the mix of influences shown by the music they make is anything to go by (their new single samples Miley Cyrus), this should be an evening full of surprises.
Saturday 11 pm, Exil
 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Battle cry
 
During the Bosnian War, Sarajevo became a city under siege. In fact, the assault lasted from April 1992 until February 1996, the longest on any capital city in modern warfare. And yet despite the horrors taking place on the streets, below ground in the cellars and underground bars a resistance of sorts was taking place as bands and artists performed. In the exhibition called Rock ‘n’ War in Sarajevo - Rock gigs under the siege of Sarajevo at Photobastei, photographer Milomir Kovacevic Strasni will show his photos of this chaotic scene for the first time and be on site to discuss his experiences. The evening will finish with music from Balkanekspress.
Saturday 7 pm, Photobastei
 
Add to favourit  Concert: California dreaming
 
If you could capture, in sound, the feeling of cruising along a deserted Californian highway in a white open-top Cadillac as the warm breeze blows back your hair and the sun glints off your Ray-Bans, then it would be something like listening to a Jonathan Wilson album. He’ll be bringing his soulful folk-rock grooving to Bogen F on Tuesday. If you end up running away from home to become a ‘child of the sun’ after the concert, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Tuesday 9 pm, Bogen F

Add to favourit  Eating: As hot as it gets

I love getting restaurant tips from you. Let’s see if you also get tempted: «At Thai Sun Garden you find the hostess herself in the kitchen, preparing a large selection of authentic, wonderful dishes at a reasonable price. The duck is tender, the veggies crunchy and the curry as hot as you like it. Every time it feels like visiting a neighbourly Thai couple for dinner. It’s a bit hidden but that adds even more to its charm.» You’ll find the venue right next to tram stop Tierspital (tram 7 or 9) exit Berninastrasse/ Winterthurerstrasse). Best to call ahead to make sure the restaurant is open.
Thai Sun Garden, Winterthurerstrasse 281, 8057 Zürich, 043 538 71 37

 
Add to favourit   Good to know: 24/7 music
 

For the fifth time, the LoRa dj marathon takes place right before Streetparade. What's new: The quirky city radio leaves its home and wanders to various locations. The music will be as diverse as ever and also the locations couldn’t vary more: ABS, Hive, Gonzo, Daniel H., Helsinki, Blaues Haus, Klubi, Palestine Grill, Kern Bar, Nordbrücke, Zitrone, Stall 6 and of course Boschbar. It’s worth to catch a beat, even better, stop by. You’ll find the programme here.
Tonight from 10 pm at Blaues Haus until 4th August at various locations
24/7 on 97.5 MHz and www.lora.ch

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: New design
 

Where there used to be a hat maker, a gallery and a piano store, the two sisters Jessica and Josie found new home for their label Kinsfolk. They use the beautiful location as a showroom and workshop for their jewellery and scarf collection. So far, they don’t have fixed opening hours but during regular working hours you’ll certainly find someone there who is happy that you came.
Kinsfolk Studio, Dubsstrasse 26, 8003 Zürich

 
Add to favourit   Shopping tip: More than honey
 

Do you know Wabe 3? They sell tasty honey collected from the rooftops of Zurich. And on my Roof Terrace Day they offered guided tours to various hives. Together with Madame Pompon they recently opened a small shop called Honig Kuchen. Here you'll find, next to their own products, various British and American baking items and stylish accessories for your teatime. Like a brunch-set that comes with honey, candles, flour, cutting board and a honey spoon.
Honig Kuchen, Birmensdorferstrasse 109, Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am to 6 om, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm

It's unbelievable what  can happen if one goes down to the cellar to replace a broken light bulb. Super Pixel Quest is an amusing, very minimalist 1-Bit-web-comic by Emanuel Espinasse.
