Add to favourit  Dear friends
Finding a flat in Zurich proves to be more and more difficult. The prices are high, empty flats are scarce, so people are willing to do anything for a lease. But to force new tenants to take on your old furniture if they want the flat is just not right. Therefore I won’t include ads in the newsletter, where furniture has to be taken over or where extra money has to be paid.
Peace, love and happiness to the city, Ron

A little bird told me that a new venue will open its doors. The name of the new shop, declared as a pop-up-bar and restaurant – is Hausbar. It found its new home in the former Boos-Lounge, as central as you can be. Today is the opening but for the entry you need to know the password. But from Friday its open daily and for everyone.
Mon to Wed: 9.30 am to midnight, Thu: 9.30 am to 2 am, Fri to Sat: 9.30 am to 4 am, Sun: 3 pm to midnight. Hausbar, Schweizergasse 8, 8001 Zurich

Hive is celebrating its anniversary this Friday. Looking back on six years filled with electronic music, live gigs and party goers it brings Canadian James Teej to the party. Support act are Hanne & Lore who always bring a smile to my face when I see them behind their decks. Happy Birthday Hive!
Friday 11 pm, Hive

APART call themselves the green culture café and it’s certainly a fine place to relax and while away a few hours if you’re ever around Kreis 3. They also put on some cultural events throughout the year. Tomorrow an event called Züri Unplugged will showcase show of the more rustic charms of the city. Tanja Kummer will tell stories of her experiences of Zurich, Christine Lauterburg will yodel (yes, I said yodel) and Dide Marfurt will play zither, Helvetic bagpipes and hurdy-gurdy. As it’s too cold to visit the mountains, why not bring the mountain culture to Zurich?
Friday 8 pm, APART grünkulturcafé

The UK scene has stolen the hip-hop fire from the US and is lighting up dark corners unexplored by their American cousins. Young Montana, voted ‘Favourite unsigned artist’ in 2010 brings his grime, hip-hop and electronica influences to the Life Bricks night at Exil. Lapalux who defines the Life Bricks mantra of ‘experimental hip-hop and bass’ joins him, also from the UK. If you want to see what a new generation are turning hip-hop into, this would be a good place to start.
Saturday 11 pm, Exil 

 
 
Add to favourit  Do the Dø
 

The French-Finnish band The Dø have thrilled audiences since early 2005. Honing a real independent pop production, they stand out from the crowd with their use of strings, jazz passages and indie-pop elements. While this mixed bag of genres could sound chaotic in more mundane hands, The Dø lead us on a merry adventure and never lose their way. They play live at Mascotte this Sunday and I have 3 x 2 tickets to give away. Email me.
Sunday 8 pm, Mascotte

The ewz.stattkino opens its doors for a 10-day run of great cinema this Wednesday. Some classic movies are on show including Bullitt, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Hellzapoppin’ but what makes these shows unique are the extras that go along with them. Many have their soundtracks played live by dj’s or electro bands, some offer a dance course, aromas (smelly-vision) or even a free breakfast box to go along with your viewing pleasure. This must be the ultimate 3-D cinema experience.
Wednesday until 26th February, ewz-Unterwerk Selnau & Arthouse Le Paris

 
 
Add to favourit  Eating: New Asian
 
I first spotted the new Asian restaurant at Kalkbreitestrasse cycling past -and forgot all about it. A few weeks later, I read a review on Spotted by Locals about the place- and forgot all about it. Until a few weeks ago. I was cycling home from work hungry and came past the corner Weststrasse / Kalkbreitestrasse and saw Weibian . Stopped, walked in, chose a take away, left tip for the friendly service, went home, ate – and was happy.
Weibian, Weststrasse 146, 8003 Zürich

Brrr, it’s freezing. So here a few tips on how to stay warm. Saunas: Zurich has various Saunas so it should be easy to find one that you like. Have a look at the overview and don’t forget the latest addition at Volkshaus. They all have one thing in common, it’s really warm inside. Tea: Tea warms from the inside. Zurich hosts many specialized tea shops such as Schwarzenbach, Teehaus Cha or Shui Tang, in which you’ll certainly find a flavour you like. Stay in: And watch DVDs, for example you can order food and Fight Club at Lilys. Or brush up on your Swissness with some Swiss films on DVD (with English subtitles of course).  Enjoy: Don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful scenery. It’s likely that many lakes in the Canton will freeze over by the weekend and will be open to the public. That doesn't happen very often. Check the local newspapers.
 
 
Add to favourit  Window farm
 

Urban farming does not necessarily have to be done outside, as the website our.windowfarms.org shows. There are numerous tutorials and models that allow you to create your own window farm out of household objects. And who has a good tip, passes on his knowledge to the rest. So create your own Hanging Gardens of Babylon and join a growing community of indoor urban farmers. Now is a good time to start planning. Get involved!

 
 
Add to favourit   Congo through rose-colored glasses
 

The photographer Richard Mosse documented the conflict in Congo. He did it with a special AeroChrome infrared film that turns the forest landscape into a candyfloss dream, giving these tragic images of war a strangely innocent hue. This enormous contrast, Mosse hopes, will draw our attention to the trivialization of this war.

Add to favourit  Party: Smoke gets in your eyes
 
They’re calling it Zigiraum but I think this is just to lure and corrupt the youth of Zurich to follow the smoky, dark side. In reality Zigiraum is a free club night at Stall 6 that is half inside and half outside, allowing you to enjoy the decadent thrills of night clubbing under the decorative stars of night time (with the occasional puff if you’re so inclined). Friday is the opening night with indie rock djs Pat & der Zensor and Milieu Mauri. Other Zigiraum nights will include an eclectic mix of djs from electro to African only vinyl to rocknroll. Free entry.
Friday 5 pm (bar), 10 pm (club), Stall 6

Add to favourit  Party: Radio Z
 
To every thing there is a season. Although I'm pretty sure the writers of those words weren't referring to Zurich's summer nightlife when they wrote them, it applies beautifully to the annual 30-day sound blast that is Rundfunk.fm. Starting this Friday, as it has for the past 13 years, Rundfunk will take over the radio and Internet airwaves of Zurich, and the world. This year the one hundred dj's and music makers will be broadcasting live from Geroldstrasse, rather than its usual Landesmuseum home. In addition to the music, they’ll be drinks and food on offer, as this cool corner of Zurich becomes a broadcasting beacon to the world.
Friday until 15th August, Opening weekend only (this Fri/Sat) 5 pm to late, Saturday - Wednesday 5 pm to 12 am, Thursday/Friday 5 pm to 2 am, broadcasting live all day, everyday, Geroldstrasse 15
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Have guitar, will travel
 
Brett Newski is an American touring musician of the old school variety - through a simple twist of fate he found himself in Vietnam and, strapping his acoustic guitar to his back and riding a beat-up motorcycle, he toured throughout Asia playing rooftops, apartments, street corners or anywhere he could find a willing audience. He now pulls into Zurich at the Kiosk on Josefwiese to play his folk-punk tunes full of catchy melodies and cutting wit. If you like a little Bob Dylan or Jack White, or just want to spend a summer’s evening relaxing in a park listening to tales from another world – Brett’s for you.
Saturday 6 pm, Kiosk at Josefwiese
 
Add to favourit   Party: Living the lake life
 
This Saturday is actually going to be a sun-day, with blue skies and temperatures tickling the lower 30’s, and so it would seem that this weekend’s dance festival on the lake has pretty perfect timing. The Naturklang Festival at Ganz Yachting has four dance floors, both inside and out, and fantastic djs from across the world turning up. If you need a break from the dancing they also have food, drinks and smoothies on-site, parasols and cushions to relax and, of course, the lake is just a dive away.
Saturday 11 am until Sunday 10 pm, Ganz Yachting, Bellerivestrasse 264, 8008
 
Add to favourit  Open Air: Home and garden
 
For five Sunday’s during the summer the eleven housemates of the old ‘Alten Trotte’ house in Wipkingen transform their large garden into Kafi Duzis, a place where friends, family, locals and perhaps you, can enjoy a real community experience. With homemade food and cakes, a flea market, kids activities, a little live music, decorations and a group of people just looking for that sunny Sunday afternoon feeling, you might like it so much you’ll be asking if they have any spare rooms you could move into.
Sunday  3 pm until 9 pm, Alten Trotte, Nordstrasse 331, 8037
 
Add to favourit  Art: Past present
 
As well as being situated on a hill in the beautiful Rieterpark, the Museum Rietberg is the only art museum of non-European cultures in Switzerland. The question of how works of art from distant lands, cultures and time can still hold meaning to a 21st Century Western audience is addressed in the new exhibition Gastspiel. Twenty-one Swiss contemporary artists have each entered into a dialogue with pieces on show at the museum via site-specific installations, interventions in the park, performance, theatre, and literature in an attempt to extract new meaning from both the old and new.  
Sunday until 9th November, Closed Monday,10 am to 5 pm (Wed 8 pm), Museum Rietberg

Fischer's Fritz  is the tasty fish restaurant located in Zurich's lakeside campsite. Yes, Zurich has a campsite. It’s a beautiful spot directly at the lake and It’s where I met Suzy. Beautiful, shiny, American Suzy. She is an airstream overland  from Florida, and as she just turned 40, she found her final resting place on the shores of the our lake. I have one memorable night for two people to give away for free. Suzy will be your perfect hostess. Just send me an e-mail

Add to favourit  Good to know: Summer in the city
 
School holidays started this week and I can already tell that Zurich is emptier than usual. Which I like a lot. For all of you who like to enjoy the summer in the city, here's a little overview of what's going on over the next few weeks regarding open-air events. CINEMAXenix Open air , until 16 August: in the middle of Kreis 4, this year with almost exclusively German and Swiss German film. I have 1x2 tickets to give for the US Nascar-film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (shown on Friday, 8.8.2014) from 2006. Just send me an emailFilmfluss , until 27 July: Enjoy films at the Limmat with German, French and English films, such as Now You See Me this Friday Killer Elite on Saturday. Ciné au Lac, until 17 August: The Orange Cinema sits on the right lake side, starting today with Fading Gigolo. CONCERTS:  Bäckeranlage, every Wednesday: Regional bands play unplugged - and if you don't like the sound, it's a nice place to be anyway. Oh See Festival, 17.-19. July: Rote Fabrik hosts several concerts right a t the lake ranging from indie to disco, rock and folk.  Zurich Openair: 28.-31. August: Within the almost endless line-up there is something for everyone, from The Editors to Bloody Beetroots (best live band ever!) and from Morcheeba to Manic Street Preachers.

Next to the former  train station Letten  – yes, there used to be a train station at the river, today only the station house remains – there is a charming space, which has been creatively used as a parking lot. The cars were removed but the city council hasn’t decided yet what to do with this spot, so they are looking for ideas. You can post your suggestions for a temporary usage  here and I'll keep my fingers crossed. Keep me posted about your ideas.
 
Add to favourit  Web tip: From above
 
Do you know the definition of the beginning of the technological age? When «love is in the air» is replaced by «drone is in the air». Terrible jokes aside, the page Dronestagram  pictures Zurich and Switzerland from above in short film footage. However, as they show my beloved city and country, love remains in the air. Or at least a pun of some sort.
