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  Concert: City in the summer
 
If the idea of venturing into a hot, dark gig to get your musical fix doesn’t appeal to you as summer shines on outside, then Stadtsommer is here to save the day, or rather your evening. Six bands, with styles ranging from folk to electronica, will be playing live over the next couple of weekends in cool outdoor locations around town, and all are free. Tonight, experimental rock band Gletscher plays outside Helsinki. I'm also looking forward to seeing musical futurist Bruno Spoerri and Crew play in the courtyard of Restaurant Riethalle and the folk of Mantel & Kantelinen at Platzspitz
Thursday 9 pm, Gletscher, outside Helsinki, Thur - Sat (24th-26th Jul & 31st Jul-1st Aug), various times & locations
 
Add to favourit  Eating: Table tour
 
The Tour de France will be finishing this Sunday, and while riding 200km a day, often up and down mountains, clad in lycra is clearly some people’s idea of fun, I much prefer the Tour de France that Kulturmarkt are offering. This Friday you can take a culinary tour of various regions of France, with the chance to eat Forest Snails, Bouillabaisse, Coq au Bordeaux and Tarte Tatin. The only question will be, do you exert yourself with a bike ride to the French feast or take the tram. Either way, lycra will be optional. To reserve, you can email restaurant@kulturmarkt.ch or call 044 454 1015.
Friday 6.30pm, Kulturmarkt, CHF 35 per person
 
Add to favourit  Party: Alt dj
 
A couple of years ago alt-J released their debut album, An Awesome Wave, which was full of folky electronica, dubstep rhythms, vocal harmonies and tunes that could get a festival field singing along. With their new album due for release soon, they’ve been invited to dj at the Mad Katz Sommerparty in Exil on Saturday night. If the mix of influences shown by the music they make is anything to go by (their new single samples Miley Cyrus), this should be an evening full of surprises.
Saturday 11 pm, Exil
 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Battle cry
 
During the Bosnian War, Sarajevo became a city under siege. In fact, the assault lasted from April 1992 until February 1996, the longest on any capital city in modern warfare. And yet despite the horrors taking place on the streets, below ground in the cellars and underground bars a resistance of sorts was taking place as bands and artists performed. In the exhibition called Rock ‘n’ War in Sarajevo - Rock gigs under the siege of Sarajevo at Photobastei, photographer Milomir Kovacevic Strasni will show his photos of this chaotic scene for the first time and be on site to discuss his experiences. The evening will finish with music from Balkanekspress.
Saturday 7 pm, Photobastei
 
Add to favourit  Concert: California dreaming
 
If you could capture, in sound, the feeling of cruising along a deserted Californian highway in a white open-top Cadillac as the warm breeze blows back your hair and the sun glints off your Ray-Bans, then it would be something like listening to a Jonathan Wilson album. He’ll be bringing his soulful folk-rock grooving to Bogen F on Tuesday. If you end up running away from home to become a ‘child of the sun’ after the concert, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Tuesday 9 pm, Bogen F

Add to favourit  Eating: As hot as it gets

I love getting restaurant tips from you. Let’s see if you also get tempted: «At Thai Sun Garden you find the hostess herself in the kitchen, preparing a large selection of authentic, wonderful dishes at a reasonable price. The duck is tender, the veggies crunchy and the curry as hot as you like it. Every time it feels like visiting a neighbourly Thai couple for dinner. It’s a bit hidden but that adds even more to its charm.» You’ll find the venue right next to tram stop Tierspital (tram 7 or 9) exit Berninastrasse/ Winterthurerstrasse). Best to call ahead to make sure the restaurant is open.
Thai Sun Garden, Winterthurerstrasse 281, 8057 Zürich, 043 538 71 37

 
Add to favourit   Good to know: 24/7 music
 

For the fifth time, the LoRa dj marathon takes place right before Streetparade. What's new: The quirky city radio leaves its home and wanders to various locations. The music will be as diverse as ever and also the locations couldn’t vary more: ABS, Hive, Gonzo, Daniel H., Helsinki, Blaues Haus, Klubi, Palestine Grill, Kern Bar, Nordbrücke, Zitrone, Stall 6 and of course Boschbar. It’s worth to catch a beat, even better, stop by. You’ll find the programme here.
Tonight from 10 pm at Blaues Haus until 4th August at various locations
24/7 on 97.5 MHz and www.lora.ch

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: New design
 

Where there used to be a hat maker, a gallery and a piano store, the two sisters Jessica and Josie found new home for their label Kinsfolk. They use the beautiful location as a showroom and workshop for their jewellery and scarf collection. So far, they don’t have fixed opening hours but during regular working hours you’ll certainly find someone there who is happy that you came.
Kinsfolk Studio, Dubsstrasse 26, 8003 Zürich

 
Add to favourit   Shopping tip: More than honey
 

Do you know Wabe 3? They sell tasty honey collected from the rooftops of Zurich. And on my Roof Terrace Day they offered guided tours to various hives. Together with Madame Pompon they recently opened a small shop called Honig Kuchen. Here you'll find, next to their own products, various British and American baking items and stylish accessories for your teatime. Like a brunch-set that comes with honey, candles, flour, cutting board and a honey spoon.
Honig Kuchen, Birmensdorferstrasse 109, Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am to 6 om, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm
