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  Shopping tip: Female files
 
Street Files have been supplying the discerning menfolk of Zurich with their contemporary, urban fashion needs for almost ten years and now, after a decade, they’ve finally realised that those cute, better looking men who come to peruse their shop occasionally are actually something called females. With this flash of insight they’ll be opening the first Street Files Female store on Thursday night. The same cool streetwear, fashion, sneakers and accessories as always, but ladyized. The Grand Opening party will have music by Nadeeya Laflame, food by Panda Buns and drinks by Vagabundo.
Thursday 7 pm, Street Files Female, Badenerstrasse 156, 8004

Add to favourit  Concert: Call me kinky
 
There’s an old joke where a nymphomaniac tells a stranger she can only be turned on by Jewish cowboys, he then introduces himself as Broncho Goldstein. Now, you may think Jewish cowboys are a rarity but in actual fact there’s only one and his name is Kinky Friedman. Not only is he a famous country star having shared stages with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson but he’s also a well-known novelist, journalist and politician, having run for Governor of Texas. It’s his music that he’ll be bringing to Bogen F on Friday, and while he plays those deep country cuts as good as anyone, he also lets his acerbic humour have full flight with songs like ‘They Ain’t Makin’ Jews like Jesus Anymore’.
Friday 9 pm, Bogen F
 
Add to favourit  Eating: Street treat
 
If you’ve ever travelled to pretty much anywhere in the world, one of the joys is sampling the food available in that country, but if you want to get a real local flavour then you need to sample the food sold by street vendors. It may not be five-star cuisine but nothing beats eating a tasty, juicy something sitting on the roadside watching a strange world go by. Although Zurich has, let’s call it, a limited street food scene, the Street Food Festival being held at Puls 5 this weekend hopes to make up for it. They’ll have an international array of trucks and stalls selling everything from tacos and ceviche to fish’n’chips and oysters.
Friday 5 pm, Saturday & Sunday 12 pm, Puls 5
 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Look at me
 
If anyone predicted the essence of the Internet age and social media the best, it was Andy Warhol with his ‘Everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes’ quote. Swiss painter and graffiti artist Ata Bozaci has used this as inspiration for his new exhibition, Beautiful Facebook - Fifteen Seconds of Fame. Taking portraits from Facebook, perhaps the greatest stage for our moment in the spotlight, he has used his unique art style to enlarge and digitalise them, removing them from the context of a social media profile and placing them on a gallery wall. The exhibition will be moving onto Basel and Bern but opens in Zurich on Saturday at The Trace Gallery.
Saturday 4 pm until 14th March, Trace Gallery, Militärstrasse 76, 8004
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Den and there
 
While Mumford and Sons have been sucking up all the oxygen of the folk-pop scene, there have been a few other bands waiting in the undergrowth, mammal-like, for the Mumfordosaurus to become extinct. One of these is Bear’s Den, from the UK, who are also partial to a passing banjo here and there but have a much deeper melancholy and drama to their sound and bring yearning that Bon Iver may even be jealous of. They play at Mascotte on Saturday night.
Saturday 7 pm, Mascotte

Add to favourit  Concert: Cheesy music
 
I know Tuesday’s aren’t the biggest draw for a night out in Zurich but if you’re in the mood for a little live music and cheese – strange I know, but stay with me - then get yourself down to the Duda Cafebar, upstairs from Cabaret Voltaire, for their Cheesesticks Club. Every Tuesday they have a live local band, with the type of music being played a surprise but often blues, jazz or rock. As well as the music, they’ll also be laying on a cheese buffet for you to nibble on between sips of your favourite beverage. All of this can be yours with free entry to the bar but one franc added to the drinks. As Granny Orp used to say, come for the music but stay for the cheese. Wise words indeed.
Every Tuesday 8 pm, Duda Cafebar

Add to favourit  Eating: A tender affair
 

A few weeks ago, five guys opened the restaurant «Stubä» (Swiss for living room) at Brauerstrasse in Kreis 4. Their speciality: The classic steak sandwich. The team tested different methods to make the meat very tender, and I can tell you: they succeeded. The rib-eye melts in your mouth, the spicing is perfect and the fresh bread rounds up a tasty meal. They will also take part at the street food festival at Puls 5 this weekend if you'd like to try it for yourself. Additionally, the bar team knows how to pour a mean drink and if you ask nicely they even mix your own personal favourite.
Restaurant Stubä, Brauerstrasse 42, 8004. Opening hours: Tuesday & Wednesday from 11.30 am to 12 am, Thursday & Friday from11.30 am to 1 am, Saturday from 6 pm to 3 am

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Fighting the winter blues
 

Next to training my arms with a pint and my legs by hopping around at a concert, I rarely manage to do anything to stay fit. I don't fancy jogging or biking by myself when the wind blows cold in my face. So I decided to get a sports partner. If you feel the same, here are some options. Ron's-Join-me: On my website there is a category where you can ask for company to concerts, films and of course also find a training partner. Bootcamper: Train in a group with bootcamper, there are training groups all around town that you can join whenever you like. City Council: The city's sports department just set up a new page where people can post classifieds for a training partner. Have a look if someone is looking for you. Or place one yourself.

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Healthy options
 

The flu is still lurking over Switzerland. To stay healthy you should eat a lot of vegetables. But as it’s too cold to head to the market, I found farmy.ch. The shop isn’t brand new but I just didn’t find the time yet to tell you about it. There you can order fruits, vegetables, flowers, bread and a lot of  goods all self-made and regionally produced. And because I love you all in a special way, I have a farmy-basket for 4 people to give away. Just send me an e-mail.
