Dream of art
 

The Proposal is an art space in a quite courtyard of Kreis 3 that will be showing 6 different prototypes that the artists hope will be made into fully realized pieces of art. If this wasn’t enough to excite you, the gallery also doubles as a fantastic B&B. You have the chance to sleep in the gallery itself or in a 1977 Peugeot J7 bus outside. A bagel breakfast and use of the gallery bikes are also included. If you have anyone visiting Zurich or you just fancy a change from your own bedroom walls, this may be just what you’re looking for. Proposal No. 3 - The Human Print has its opening, with dj set, tonight.
Thursday 6 pm, The Proposal, Dubstrasse 33a, 8003

Mystery men
 

Signori Misteriosi is the new moniker under which four Zurich guys, all with long and winding musical pasts, have come together to record. They claim Ennio Morricone and Them Crocked Vultures as seemingly mismatched inspirations, but having seen them perform last year, there may be something to that. They play live, and show the video premier of their new single, Duty of Loyalty, at Papiersaal this Friday. This is a double bill, with Jesh in the co-starring role.
Friday 9.30 pm, Papiersaal

Skream and schout
 

Oliver Jones, aka Skream, is one of UK dubstep’s original and leading lights. Having been born in Croydon, ground zero for dubstep, his pedigree is clear. He’s also proven himself to have crossover appeal with the slow burning remix of La Roux’s ‘In for the Kill’ and his own top 10 single.  He comes to BLOK this Friday, accompanied by his faithful sidekick Sgt Pokes. In support are the KillOut AllStars and Dubsludge Collective. 
Friday 11 pm, BLOK Club

Bring the noise
 

As the cities of England burned last year and the wordless youth took out their frustrations on the consumer treats dangled, carrot-like, just in front of them, it seemed as if the time was ripe for a voice to rise above the clatter and move beyond the apocalyptic headlines. I don’t know if Scroobius Pip is that voice but he should be. More poet than rapper, he has anger and eloquence in equal measure and coming from the UK, has that underlying humour to his rhymes that tickle your ears. He plays Rote Fabrik on Saturday. 
Saturday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik

Mini metal, big noise
 

The ewz.stattkino season continues this Saturday with a performance of Never Hang Around by Minimetal.  This is an avant-garde performance combining cinema, performance art and hard rock music. It is a version of the famous Swiss Alps legend, where the creators of Sennentuntschi, an artificial female sex object made-out-of-straw, become the targets of her revenge. As you can tell this isn’t The Sound of Music! I have 3 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.
Saturday 8 pm, ewz stattkino, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001

The Donor
 

What if you were the parent of twin daughters and it was within your power to save one of their lives, but not both? This is the premise for Helen Fitzgerald’s new book, The Donor. Although this may not sound like the most joyous of plots, Fitzgerald’s books are often filled with dark humour and unexpected hilarity, none more so than this one. She is at Kaufleuten on Wednesday to give a reading and answer questions, and I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.

Milchbar
 

Zurich has the highest club density in Europe, which is great for the nights and weekends but also means there is a lot of space underutilized during weekdays. With this thought in mind, the Milchbar was created. Setting up a mobile kitchen they conjure up simple, well-cooked menus daily. For only 10 francs you can choose either a meat or vegetarian menu, plus a salad and lemon water to drink. They also let you bring your own drinks. I've tried it: My wallet, my taste buds and I are very satisfied!
Monday to Friday 11:30 to 13:30 Milchbar (Abart), Manessestrasse 170, 8045

Guerrilla swings
 

Two Tampa Bay students mounted a handmade swing in the middle of their city. The reaction of passers-by was surprisingly great: first they stood talking, then they started to play and push one another and total strangers become temporary playmates. This simple idea was recognized as such a success that they the city council immediately set-up many more swings around the city. Conclusion: The simplest ideas often provide the strongest message.

Future now
 

The day on which the line between science fiction and reality disappears no longer seems to be far away. This brave new world is especially being driven by the Microsoft Kinect technology. In the video Kinect Effect, Microsoft shows us in the real world what, even only 10 years ago, would have been fantasy for the movies. Lo and behold!

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.
