January give away - Kochpost
 
There is one question, which we’ll ask all our lives. Mostly, at the end of a work day: What shall I cook today? The new city service Kochpost relieves you of that burden. As a subscriber you’ll receive every week a grocery bag filled with ingredients and four recipes. Two of these bags I give away today – just send me an e-mail. Tuck in!

Dark green
 

Liz Green is a UK singer/songwriter who brings the same dark cabaret sound to her music as Tom Waits does to his. Her voice may be smoother than Tom’s but this is still folk music presented as a Brothers Grimm fairytale– dark, melancholic and whimsical. In the dark nights of January this music seems totally at home. She has just released her debut album and plays live at Gonzo tonight.
Thursday 8 pm, Gonzo Club

Back to the future
 

Hubertus closed its doors about a year ago but if you remember those nights of dark, sweaty, electro abandon and would like to relive them somehow, you no longer need that time machine you’ve been working on over the Christmas break, as Remember Hubertus Fez will revive those nights for you. The location may be new, now at Apartment 22, but the djs, the music and the sweat remain unchanged.
Saturday 10 pm, Apartment 22

Real fake
 

From bedroom producer to fully-fledged electro guru, the UK’s Nathan Fake has been on an ever-ascending ride these last few years. As an artist on the ever-experimental Border Community record label, he has produced some great records bringing a combination of dreamy synth soundscapes and pounding beats to his melody infused tunes. He plays at Zukunft on Saturday supported by a couple of great local djs, John Player and P Bell.
Saturday 12 am, Zukunft

Nordic noise
 

Over the last decade or so, the Nordic countries have produced way more than their fair share of great bands and music. There’s maybe something to be said for 6-month long nights. The first Sounds Nordic, Sounds Good festival was organised last year by the embassies of these countries and X-tra to showcase this talent and now the second edition is here. There are 4 headliners to the festival: the crazy gypsy rock of Kaizers Orchestra, the supergroup Caligola, retro indie rockers Figurines and singer/songwriter Mirel Wagner
Sunday 8 pm, X-tra

Arab Spring
 
I recently realized that most Chambers of Commerce organise various events and discussion throughout the year. The lunch panel “Business Opportunities in the Wake of the Arab Spring” at Zunfthaus zur Meisen on Monday caught my eyes. If you’re also curious what experts, such as the CEO of Roche North and West Africa or the CEO of ABB Morocco and Tunisia have to share, then register yourself today as a guest for the talk with the Canadian-Swiss Chamber of Commerce.
Monday 11.30 am to 2 pm, Zunfthaus zur Meisen
What the Dickens!
 

Shakespeare. Dickens. Orp. Often cited as three of the greatest names of the English written word, but only one is celebrating his 200th birthday this year. During his lifetime, Charles Dickens created some of the best-loved and celebrated characters in the English language. Whether it's Oliver in the workhouse, Scrooge at Christmas or Pip on the moors each book created a vivid world that still resonates today. Museum Strauhof has a multi-media exhibition that is detailing Dickens’ life and fiction, as well as some of the mysteries that surrounded him.
Until March 4, Museum Strauhof

Good to know
 
On Monday the year of the dragon starts. So happy Chinese New Year to you! Friendship: Did you know that Zurich has a partner city in China? Kunming is the town, which gave the China Garden to the city in 1994, as a thank you for the water supply system that Swiss Engineers helped construct about 140 years ago. The garden is one of the highest ranked temple gardens outside of China. But you’ll have to wait until 24th of March until you can visit it again. Party: Hotel St Gotthard celebrates the Chinese New Year for the first time including Chinese live music, calligraphy dancing and kung-fu lions (if you find out, let me know!). And of course Chinese specialties. You can book a seat by sending an email to  bankett@hotelstgotthard.ch. Food: If all this talk made you yearn for Chinese, check out Suan Long. It was one of the first Chinese restaurants in Zurich. It’s a chain with several branches but I like their kitsch interior at Tessinerplatz best. Mànmànchi!
Favourite object: Megaphone
 
There are various speakers for the iPhone which all run on electricity or battery. That’s unnecessary thought the Italian designers of en&is while designing the MegaPhone. It functions like the gramophone and amplifies the sound through the horn form made of ceramics. Watch video
Fan managed football
 
In Mexico there‘s a football club that’s managed almost completely by the fans. The fans vote online or by text message about the line-up, bonuses and even team strategies. It’s a brave decision by FC Murcielago to pass on the reigns to their fans.  I’m curious to see how the team performs.

Add to favourit  Festival: Street life
 
Maybe it’s the sense that summer is slowly packing away her golden trinkets for another year that has done it, but this weekend has brought out the Zurich city quarter festivals in force. The Röntgenplatzfest takes place on Friday and Saturday and has live bands and djs playing both evenings, an organised tour of Zurich West if you want to get to know the area a little better and is a kid-friendly zone on Saturday afternoon. Friday sees the granddaddy of all Zurich streetfests taking place – the Hallwylplatzfest is now in its twentieth year and has a kids fest until 6pm then out come the bands, and who could resist with names like The Peacocks and Handsome Hank. Finally, on Friday and Saturday is the Brupbacherplatzfest. There’ll be bands aplenty both nights, but while all the other festivals will have food and drink to enjoy, the Brupbacherplatzfest has a Food Street with Ethiopian, Indian and Arabic delights on offer.
Friday from 8.15 pm, Saturday from 12 pm, Röntgenplatz, 8005
Friday from 4 pm, Hallwylplatz, 8004
Friday from 6 pm, Saturday 12 pm, Brupbacherplatz, 8003
 
Add to favourit  New kid on the block: A different kind of magic
 

Houdini was an illusionist and though he died almost 90 years ago, he’s still remembered today for his magic. One reason for Frank Braun to name the new cinema at Kalkbreite after him (the other reason «The name just sounds good»). With this latest addition the Kalkbreite complex is complete and celebrates this on Friday and Saturday with readings, music, food, exhibitions, tram rides and of course also films at the new cinema. It’s your chance to get a glimpse behind otherwise closed doors, visit the roof terrace, check out the new cinema, enjoy some concerts on the piazza, get a drink at Wohnzimmerbar, a cupcake at Oh Sweetest Thing or some meze at Bebek. For the full programme, check their website.
Friday 5 pm to 11 pm, Saturday 12 pm to 11 pm, corner Kalkbreitestrasse/Badenerstrasse, 8003

Add to favourit  Stage: Motel mayhem
 
In a motel next to busy Hardbrücke street, two brothers arrive and except for having to use the motel’s bath as both a double bed and a shower, things seem normal. This soon changes as the brothers rehearse their circus act all day, fight for the love of the Motel dancer and generally cause the owners trouble. This takes place as the house band plays on the Motel roof. All this is part of StrassenZirkusTheater’s new open-air show, Das Motel, which will be performed, for free, outside of Helsinki Club on Friday and Saturday night.
Friday and Saturday 8 pm, Helsinki
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Classical clash
 
If you think of a live performance of classical music, I’m sure certain images come to mind – perhaps violinists in tuxedo’s, cellists in evening gowns, plush red theatre seats, the respectful murmur of an expectant audience. Well, Musik im Rausch has decided to break with tradition and perform classical music in unconventional spaces. Previously it has been in a mechanics garage, an electrical power station and even at the top of the Prime Tower. This Saturday the performances will be in the Alter Botanischer Garten,overlooking the cty centre. If you’d like to go, I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.
Saturday 7.30 pm, Alter Botanischer Garten, Talstrasse, 8001
 
Add to favourit  Open Air: Digital garden
 
Les Digitales is a festival for electronic and experimental music that takes place across Switzerland in various cities and parks. All the artists on offer come from both Switzerland and across Europe. I’m looking forward to hearing Ghosting Season from Manchester, England and Pingu, who are a duo from Zurich and Berlin. Both have that dreamy vibe perfect for summer. It's taking place for the first time at the Stadionbrache, an urban grassland and gardens next to the old football stadium in Hardturm. They’ll also have a bar and simple menu to ease you into the chilled electro mood. And entry is free!
Sunday 1 pm to 9 pm, Stadionbrache, Hardturm

Add to favourit  Good to know: Zurich for free
 

Did you spend too much money on your holidays? Or saving up to escape this miserable summer? Here some tips to enjoy Zurich for free. Model city: How did Zurich look like 200 years ago? At the Haus zum unteren Recht (Neumarkt 4) you find a detailed model portraying a town without Limmatquai and Bahnhofstrasse. Fishing: Anyone is allowed to fish at the lake, as long as you stand at the public shore and don’t use bait fish. Mazes: To lose and find your path – that’s what life is all about. In Zurich you can get lost as much as you like at the hedge labyrinth at Kasernenareal, the flower maze at Seeburgpark or the medical plant maze at ETH Hönggerberg. Birds: if you like birds head to the Voliere at Mythenquai. For more than 100 years it offers refuge to wild birds and visitors can spot 111 exotic birds.

 
Add to favourit  Eating: Mezze for all
 

The speciality at Moudi’s Lecker Café are their mezze, and when you try them you realize immediately, why the café chose this name (Lecker means tasty in German). Compared to other offers in town, the price is very reasonable and they’re prepared mostly without garlic. So you can come back every day without starting to smell, tells me the owner. Smart! They offer 30 dishes – of which 25 are vegan – so the choice is great. If you don’t want to spend every single night there, you can also get a take-away.
Moudi’s Lecker Café, Kronenstrasse 48, 8006

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Run. Draw. Repeat
 
I think we can all agree that modern technology is a great thing. Take for example the Nike+ jogging app. This little gizmo, when worn during your jog, will draw your route onto a map for you to gaze exhaustedly at afterwards. Now, modern technology coupled with a devilish mind is a great and wondrous and funny thing. Take this website as an example, and maybe as an inspiration - runningdrawing.tumblr.com – in which the blogger uses her Nike+ to draw pictures as she runs. I’m not sure if it’s NSFW but let’s just say she uses the long straight roads she lives near as her inspirational muse. I’d love to see any pictures you’ve jogged using our city as the canvas.
 
Add to favourit   Web tip: Catch it if you can
 
You don’t know where to find the next tram or bus stop? Or if you’ll catch the next S-Bahn? Departures Switzerland answers all these questions. Just download the app, hold your mobile into the desired direction (reminds me a bit of E.T.) and you’ll receive tie table including distance to the next station. Very hand: They also tell you if the trains or buses are running late.
