Zurich (EN):Zurich, 21.7.2011: Porn Orp Party, antipasti & dark beer lovers

Share this newsletter

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

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 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.

Next week I’ll be shutting down my website at some point. But don’t despair, it won’t be for long, just on Monday and Tuesday. And I’ll return with a beautiful new design. Better than ever. Because the new Ron will connect you and the city like never before! Soon, very soon, you will be able to find out more...
Give my love to the city, Ron

Add to favourit  Concert: Metronomy and you
Metronomy have always been an odd proposition. They’re a band very much of the here and now but have a sound that has a strange amateurish 70’s vibe. They also bring the funk but filtered through a particularly English stiff upper lip. Even the band members themselves seem to be collected together from totally different bands. Despite all these contradictions, the music is fantastic and their songs are sprinkled with the golden pixie dust of great pop. They are playing at X-tra tonight and I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me before 4 pm for a chance to win.
Thursday 8 pm, X-tra
Add to favourit  Concert: Acoustic bliss
Sometimes on a night out, I’m not looking for the hippest beats or the edgiest club, what I want is to be pampered. Yes, you heard me, this Ron needs a little loving. And if that loving comes in the form of the finest comfort food (slow cooked pulled pork sandwich and baked New York cheesecake, anyone?), a vast selection of boutique beers and live acoustic music from Ibby and Walti, covering songs from the last few decades, then so be it. Luckily, I’ll be able to find all of these in the warm embrace of Fork & Bottle this Friday night.
Friday 7.30 pm, Fork and Bottle
Add to favourit  Comedy: Irish eyes are smiling
All of the best comedians are angry about something. It might be the stupidity of people, the state of world affairs or even the way a man serves soup, à la Seinfeld’s soup Nazi. Andrew Maxwell is a multi-award winning Irish comedian, who has been based in London for over 20 years, and filters his anger through a certain twinkly-eyed charm and a sharp intelligent wit. Covering subjects as diverse as politics, an Irishman raising English kids and red squirrels he’s been brought into town by the International Comedy Club to play Mascotte on Friday.
Friday 7 pm, Mascotte
Add to favourit  Party: Play it again
The Casablanca Café-Bar on Langstrasse has always been cool little place to hang out, whether it’s for warm-up drinks before a night out or for a cool-down brunch the following day. This Saturday they will be celebrating their 10th anniversary with a party hosted by djs Klaus Chindsgi and Paladisco.  You can expect the usual mix of easygoing people although, with the party currently having no end time, they may be a lot more easygoing by the time it’s over.
Saturday 8 pm, Casablanca Café-Bar
Add to favourit   Discussion: The final frontier
It’s usually on a groggy Sunday morning, especially after a spangly Saturday night out, that i start to contemplate the big questions of life. Why can't i tickle myself? Are my big toes too big? Is there alien life in the universe? Now, some of these may be personal to me but if you’ve ever wondered about the existence of alien life, and have had enough of hearing the answer, ‘Only on Uranus’ from your drunken friends, then head to the Museum Rietberg this Sunday for a talk entitled Is There Life Out in the Universe? with Ben Moore, Professor of Astrophysics at Zurich University. So the choice is yours: spend an extra hour in bed on a Sunday blearily wondering or go get your mind blown by an astrophysicist. In English.
Sunday 11 am, Museum Rietberg
Add to favourit  Cinema: Food and film
Like the first flowers of spring, the Pop-Up Cinema in Studio 177 will be fleeting yet strangely seductive. This Wednesday (11th) will be a vampire wine battle between Brad Pitt and Francis Ford Coppola (yes, you read that correctly). Both movie makers own vineyards and both have been involved with vampire movies, Interview with a Vampire and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Taste their wines, rate which is the best and the winner’s film will be shown on the evening. Maybe this is how the Oscars should be decided. Next Wednesday (18th), the film Chocolat will be shown. To accompany the movie will be a sumptuous chocolate inspired dinner menu. Reservation for the dinner should be made by 15th March.
Wednesday 11th and 18th March 7 pm, Pop-Up Cinema, Studio 177, Heinrichstrasse 177, 8005

Add to favourit  Eating: A good thing

The social group called Zum Bunten Tisch (The Colourful Table) takes over the Restaurant Sahltimbocca one evening each month, allowing young men and women, who are intellectually challenged, to be responsible for service for the evening. There is a sense of passion and charm from all involved, and a chance to get more out of a meal than just feeling full. Also, you have the choice between booking as usual, for the number of guests or for a table, where you’ll join other guests. There are just a few places left for this month’s event (28th March) so I thought I'd let you know in advance.
Saturday 28th March from 6 pm, Zum Bunten Tisch @ Restaurant Saltimbocca

Add to favourit  Good to know: Burning Houdini

Tuesday, the 17th of February, was a black day for Houdini. A fire destroyed the entire bar area. Luckily, no one was hurt and the cinema remain intact. The clean-up and the refurbishment is still takeing place so Houdini remains closed until the end of March (maybe even longer). Until then, Riffraff offers asylum and Houdini’s current programme can be viewed there at lunchtime.

Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Senusal and sexy

From women, for women: that’s the slogan of Evelyn Huber and Ramona Keller the designers behind Lyn Lingerie. Looking at the sexy results – all handcrafted here in Zurich -, I think they could also say: From women, for men or even the other way around. Evelyn and Ramona just closed their shop at Glasmalergasse and moved to Frau Gerold’s Garten last Saturday. As a Ronster, I’m sure you know that neighbourhood, so have a peek inside when you’re in the area.

So. Please forgive me.
