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.

Add to favourit  Stage: Listen without hearing
 
One of the prerequisites of being a dancer would seem to be the ability to hear the music you’re dancing to but with the production of Listen at Rote Fabrik, it goes to show what a hearist I really am.  To music played live by Fritz Hauser, a troupe of hearing and deaf dances will put on a delicately choreographed performance that, just like watching a blind tightrope walker, adds an extra level of awe to the amazement of just seeing the act itself.
Thursday, Friday & Saturday 8 pm, Rote Fabrik
 
Add to favourit  Party: Two door club
 
Two Door Cinema Club are UK indie-rockists with a dance floor bent, as they weave their electric guitars through suitably electro beats, and have become quietly huge while doing so. They’ve now been invited over to Zurich by the two party labels Killer & In/Out to show another aspect of their dance floor skills, as djs in Hive this Friday. They’ll be supported by a stellar array of local djs who also know how to put the indie into dance.
Friday 11 pm, Hive
 
Add to favourit   Festival: Free style
 
This weekend sees Europe’s biggest freestyle festival come to the shores of the lake as freestlye.ch plays host to some of the worlds best snowboarders, free skiers, mountain bikers and motocrossers. We may be less than an hour away from the Alps but, hell, who needs a geography lesson when you can build your own mountain, and cover it in snow, right here in town? They’ll also have skate parks, a labelworld, food, drink, live bands and djs just in case the excitement of watching death-defying leaps and twists starts to drag.  In town they also have a Riders Welcome Night party in Plaza on Friday and an After-Burner party at Härterei on Saturday. I have 1 x 2 tickets to give away for the freestyle festival. E-mail me.
Friday 11 pm, Plaza (Riders Welcome Night)
Saturday & Sunday from 11 am, Landiwiese ( freestyle festival)
Saturday 11 pm, Härterei (After-Burner Party)

Add to favourit  Concert: Lucky charm
 
Depending on where you come from in the world, a black cat crossing your path can either bring with it good or bad luck, but by letting rapper/dj duo Gato Preto (black cat in Portuguese) cross your path on Saturday at Stall 6 one thing is for certain: however lucky you feel afterwards, you’ll have danced yourself silly. With their music containing elements of African breakbeat, Brazilian baile funk and European house they seem to have distilled global dance rhythms into one undeniable and unstoppable sound. They’ll be followed by a dj set from Tropical Continent Soundsystem who bring together electronic beats with Caribbean percussion. All in all, in these waning days of summer, a perfect chance to disappear into more exotic climes.
Saturday 10 pm, Stall 6
 
Add to favourit  Event: Behind the scenes
 

This Saturday, some doors are wide open that are usually closed to the general public. Zurich University of the Arts: It’s been a long time since I visited Toni Areal, back then, the factory was filled with ateliers and spontaneous parties. Now, after many months (has it been years?) of renovation Toni Areal welcomes students. If your curious to see what the new campus looks like, head there this weekend. You find the full programme of guided tours and exhibitions on their website. Moods & Schiffbau: The theatres are reopening into a new season. In this spirit, jazz club Moods invites to music, dance and an artistic programme, while Schiffbau shows you where they create their beautiful sets and costumes. During the day, entry is for free. Have a look on their website to see what's going on when.
Saturday 10 am to 6 pm & Sunday 10 am to 4 pm, Toni Areal
Saturday 3 to 8 pm, Moods & Schiffbau

 
Add to favourit  Concert: The boys are back
 
Traditional music can often sound just plain old sometimes, but when it’s played raw with intensity and sincerity then those dusty old ghosts start to look pretty vivid to me. The Hackensaw Boys play a brand of bluegrass and country that feels a lot like punk rock, in that it slaps you about the face (in a loving way) and makes you want to jump about. They may have band members called Pee Paw and The Kooky-Eyed Fox but these good ol’ country boys have also supported The Flaming Lips and Modest Mouse, as well as playing music festivals all over the world. They’ll be playing El Lokal on Sunday night.
Sunday 8.20 pm, El Lokal

Add to favourit  Good to know: Election time
 

This weekend, the Swissies have a say on various matters, of those I believe that there are two thatcould matter to you: health insurance and housing in Zurich.  Health insurance: The initiative tackles the basic insurance, which covers the same services everywhere. The initiative believes that a public basic health insurance would lower the costs as no money is spend on attracting new clients. This cause is supported by the left while the liberal parties believe that private companies do a better job in keeping the costs down generally. Housing in Zurich: The second initiative only concerns the Canton of Zurich. Its plan: A fixed amount of lower-rent-apartments within large projects in return for a higher-density-building permission. As before, the left supports this, hoping for more affordable housing within town. The liberal opposition believes that additional regulations will lead to fewer projects generally. The decision is up to the majority as usual and you’ll find the results from Sunday (after the poll) in the Swiss press or on swissinfo.

 
Add to favourit  Eating: The month with an R
 

Regarding mussels I’m only familar with one rule: You should only eat them in months that contain an R. So after a few r-less month, September has started and therefore Moules & Frites are back in town. I spotted them on Les Halles' menue yesterday and I'm informed that  Dani H. is also preparing his tiny kitchen. But the highlight each year is Seebad Enge. Where you usually go for a swim in summer – well, maybe not this summer – they set the tables and serve Moules & Frites right at the lake until 18 October.

 
Add to favourit   Shopping tip: Here to stay

More or less one year ago, I told you about the pop-up-store at Idaplatz «Fein & Dein». They enjoyed their temporary stay and are back for good. As before they offer conserved organic goods from the summer harvest as well as beautiful vintage kitchen utensils. Additionally they also sell unique hand-made furniture and objects now.
Fein & Dein, Sihlfeldstrasse 57, 8003. Opening hours: Wednesday to Friday 1.30 to 7 pm, Saturday 1 to 7 pm
