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.

A good meal comes with good wine. I often find unique characters at  Smith & Smith that stand out of the crowd. For example the wines that are named after our city patrons: «Felix» a charming red wine and «Regula» a discreet and easy-going white. To cure your January blues – or to maybe drown them – I have three sets with three red and three white wines each to give away. Just send me an e-mail.

Add to favourit  Concert: A star is born
 
It always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to point you in the direction of a great band or show that’s coming to town but sometimes it’s the new, the unknown, the just plain amateur that can offer up unexpected delights. With this in mind, I wanted to let you know about the jam sessions and open mic nights that take place around town. Thursdays at Restaurant Falcone is the blues, rock and soul jam session. An ever-revolving cast of musicians that jump on stage and sound better than many rehearsed bands. On Mondays, Bar Rossi have their Spaced Out night where actors, writers and musicians get to star in their own one wo/man show. On Wednesdays at Plaza is The Open Mic Show where anything from drag-queens to poets get their chance in the spotlight. Also on Wednesdays is the Open Jam Session at Langstars. They provide the stage and equipment, and the musicians provide the jam. If you also want to perform, some require registration, others are just a leap-on-stage away.
Thursday 9 pm, Restaurant Falcone
Monday 8 pm, Bar Rossi
Wednesday 8 pm, Plaza and Langstars
 
Add to favourit  Game: Global gaming
 
Video games are fast becoming the dominant media experience for many people. Whether it's on a smart phone, social network and especially on a console, games now have bigger budgets, character development and emotional immersion than most movies, books or music. The GlobalGame Jam, taking place at  Rote Fabrik this weekend, sees thousands of people and locations connected around the world as they come together in small teams to design and build new games within 48 hours. This isn't only for the computer programming nerds among us, as aspects of design, music, story telling and just good old creativity will all be required. The Game Jam's doors are open to all, whether you take part or not, and you can join any team whose ideas interest you, although expect a pretty sleepless 48 hours. Registration is required.
Friday 5 pm to Sunday, Rote Fabrik, Dock 18
 
Add to favourit  Party: Start to Finnish
 
What with all of this extra cold weather we’ve been having lately, it seems silly not to go all the way and import a little bit of Finland into our midst, and what better way to celebrate a nation that likes to get hot and steamy in small rooms than the Suomi Disko at Exil. Resident djs Kersantti Kankkunen and Pikku E will be playing Finnish music from traditional polka and pop to Finnish hip-hop and the lesser-known Nordic reggae. As well as the dj set, Finnish troubadour Hullu-Jussi will be on hand to play live. This will all be topped off with servings of Finnish beer and food. Kippis, my Finnish, and soon-to-be Finnish, friends.
Friday 11 pm, Exil
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Swedish sounds
 
Despite the fact that Vita Bergen record their music in one of this Swedish duo’s bedroom, it sounds as if it were made to be played from a mountaintop, just as the sun rises over an unsuspecting world. They have the emotional urgency of the early Arcade Fire records, and have been bubbling up in the Swedish underground for a couple of years now. Their debut EP was recently released after a music industry rush to sign them and they’ll be playing at Rote Fabrik on Friday.
Friday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik
 
Add to favourit  Stage: Go west
 
In a dusty corner of YouTube lies a short, unassuming home video of a long forgotten family karaoke party. The Gob Squad, a joint German/UK performance group, sees this unspectacular starting point as a way to explore the state of Western civilisation in the 21st Century. Recreating the scene with live camera projections, music, props and a little help from randomly selected audience members (watch out for flying cuddly toys) they unravel what may seem mundane into a glitzy, glam, funny critique of our society. Western Society will be playing at Gessnerallee on Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday 9 pm, Sunday 6 pm, Gessnerallee
 
Add to favourit   Sport: Born to run
 
There’s either a sneaky mass evacuation happening in town, with lycra being the only clothing people have the ability to take with them or a lot more people have started to jog in the New Year. Let’s assume it’s the latter and, as crazy as this may sound, let’s assume you’re one of them. If you need a little group motivation to get you going, or just like to breathe heavily with strangers outside, you might want to try City Running. Throughout the week, and with specials on Sunday, you can meet up at various fixed locations to join others on routes around town.
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 7 pm, various locations

Add to favourit  Drinking: A room full of life
 

It felt like an embrace of a good friend when I walked into Wohnzimmerbar last Friday. The locale was filled with laughter, good music, cosy sofas and a well-stocked bar, just the right place to settle down for a nightcap. Or two. From the bar you see straight into the tram depot, which gives an urban edge to the living-room-atmosphere. As it is with good friends, time just flies, and at once the depot lies in the dark and you realize that your night cap turned into (another) late night.
Wohnzimmerbar, Kalkbreitestrasse 10, 8003. Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 5 pm to 1 am, Friday and Saturday 4 pm to 2.30 am, Sunday 1 pm to 0.30 am (with concerts)

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Curling
 

I loved the winter wonderland we experienced over New Year. Unfortunately, snow is a feeble friend that already left us and maybe never returns. To find winter spirit, you have two options. A: Head to the mountains. B: Try curling. Dolder is known to have the prettiest ice rink in town and it also sports a curling hall. They offer a basic course (next one starting from Monday, 26th January for 200 francs per person) as well as individual try outs with max five people. To complete your day out, combine it with brunch, lunch or dinner at Dolder or head to the ice rink where a lot of Glühwein awaits you. The ice rink is currently under repair, but reopens on Tuesday.

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: From gold to dust
 

Between beautiful vintage furniture there are unique pieces of art to be discovered at the pop up shop Rost & Gold. Amongst them are photos, paintings, illustrations and hand-crafted goods by Saskia Widmer and Janet Müller. This treasure hunt will close its doors this Saturday (which is the destiny of every pop up shop). But I have two vouchers to give away for 100 francs to spend there, before they’re gone. Just send me an e-mail.
Rost& Gold Talstrasse 37, 8001. Opening hours: Thursday & Friday 11.30 am to 6.30 pm, Saturday 11 am to 6 pm

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Stolen moments
 

Lucas Levitans steals photos. Very officially. In his Instagram-project «Photo Invasion» the Brazilian artist creates new stories with existing pictures. The entertaining illustrations are fairly dark but mostly funny. If you like them, also click through «Stolen Pictures» and «The Invisible Bikes» on his page.
