Everything must go
 

Have you ever sat in a nice restaurant and thought to yourself, ‘That lamp would look great in my boudoir, I wonder if I could carry it out of here without anyone noticing?’ No? Maybe it’s just me then! Well for any would-be kleptomaniacs out there, Bohemia and its sister restaurants are selling off much of their used and un-used stock over the next few days. At Two Spice in Oelikon, furniture, lamps, crockery, pictures and even some clothes from Wink are all up for grabs, with the added bonus of not having to look furtively over your shoulder as you leave.
Thursday to Sunday Thur/Fri 12pm – 8pm and Sat/Sun 10am to 6pmTwo Spice, Birchstrasse 230, 8050

Musical feast
 

The M4Music festival is back again. The annual shindig for all of music’s great and good to gather in our city and blow our little minds. As well as panel discussions, conferences and a democlinic for aspiring musicians there are, of course, a fantastic selection of bands, singers and djs to see play live. My highlights this year include The Maccabees, Mark Lanegan, Modeselektor and Christopher Christopher
Thursday to Saturday at various times, Schiffbau, Moods and Exil

Bikes, bikes, bikes
 
The sun is shining, the birds are singing – it’s time to get back on your bike. If you don’t own a bicycle, be assured that it’s the easiest and often the fastest vehicle to get around town. This Saturday you can buy a cheap bike at the City Council Bike Auction. All bikes are second hand, have been collected in Zurich and which no one has claimed back. The city fathers have then kindly cleaned and fixed them. Bids start at 50 francs. If you don’t have time to go this Saturday, the next auction takes place on 28th of April.
Saturday 1 pm viewing / 1.30 pm auction, Limmatstrasse 114

Flower power
 
The Night of the Flowers reminds party goers in Zurich of bygone times when gay and techno parties took place underground. Area, who organizes the event at Hive this Saturday, is also history but their Flowerparties are still an annual part of Zurich’s nightlife. Beautifully decorated with flowers everywhere you won’t doubt for a second that spring is here. So let’s dance until dawn for a beautiful summer to tunes by Don Ramon, Valentino, Jesse Jay, Mandeg, Cherie und Franco. I also have 3x2 tickets to give away. Email me

Soul boy
 

Listening to a Mayer Hawthorne song you might be forgiven for thinking his sweet falsetto belongs to a black man from 60’s Detroit rather than the nerdy looking white guy from LA that he actually is. He wears his retro record collection proudly on his sleeve and for one night only, at Hotel Rivington & Sons, will be bringing it with him as he plays, what I expect to be, a fantastic dj set. Entrance is free.
Saturday 11pm, Hotel Rivington & Sons

Eating at Plüsch
 
Café Bar Plüsch is a Zurich veteran. Plüsch means plush, which describes how this venue’s interior looked years back when I’d just moved to Zurich. It opened its doors 13 years ago and I’ve had many good times in there, but it was about time that a new lick of paint and polish were given to the old girl. In this new dress, they serve a range of breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday for the reasonable price of 10.50 francs per person (without drinks).
Plüsch, Aemtlerstrasse 16, 8003

Don’t forget that a short weekend lies ahead of you. At 2 am Sunday morning (Saturday night), the clocks are moved one hour ahead, as in most (but not all) countries worldwide. Well, at least our clocks will already be in summer spirit.

Awesome tapes from Africa
 

While researching the local music scene in Ghana on a scholarship from the US, Brian Shimkovitz would wander through the local street markets and began to buy cassette tapes of obscure African bands and musicians. After a time his collection grew to thousands of tapes and Brian had stumbled upon a musical underground whose sound was totally different to anything else going on in the world. This eventually led to his excellent blog, Awesome Tapes from Africa, where you can listen to all of his lo-fi, and totally unique, discoveries.

Add to favourit  Festival: In the old town
 

The legendary «Dörflifest» takes place one more time this weekend at Niederdorf. The cobbled streets will be filled not just with hen and stag nights as well as young party goers (the usual crowd) but also a large quantity of locals. So expect a busy place where you find everything your night-owl heart desires from food and drinks, to stalls and live music at Hirschenplatz.
Friday from 6 pm, Saturday from 3 pm, Sunday from 10 am, Niederdorf

 
Add to favourit  Festival: On the go
 

Whenever I return from Asia, I miss the wonderful street food that’s on offer there. Seems like someone heard me. The first Street Food Festival takes place this weekend with delicacies from the world over, everything to go. Friday starts with a musical introduction and a dinner set-up, Saturday you can eat your way around the globe all day and night and on Sunday the Food Market offers an alternative to the classic brunch. If your mouth is already watering – hang in there, it starts tomorrow.
Friday from 5 pm, Saturday & Sunday from 12 pm, Allmendstrasse 92, 8041

A long night awaits you at Photobastei (to be honest, I never realized there is another kind of night there) with concerts, performances and  open house within the museum. After its few months of existence this is Photobastei's last weekend, and this its final event - it's now or never time.
Saturday 8 pm, Photobastei

 
Add to favourit  Festival: International affair
 

Next to the «Dörflifest» and the «Street Food festival» there is also a festival at Zeughaushof. It’s a first and the program offers everything from games for kids and families to food stalls, exhibitions as well as live music. You get the best songs of rock history with Family Affair, followed by the powerful voice of Janis is Alive. Prior to the band, lecturers and students of the Voice+Music Academy will prove their talent. An international affair that takes place on Saturday. Entry is for free
Saturday from 2 pm, Zeughaushof

It's been twelve years since Fantoche, the international festival for animations, had its launch in Baden. I've visited the festival several times over the last years and can recommend this trip out of town to all of you. Next to animation shorts you’ll also find cut scenes from video games for national and international designers. This year’s guest is Japan so I’m sure you’re in for some innovative treats and with more than 1000 shorts to choose from, there is something for every taste.
2. to 7. September, Fantoche, Baden

The 25 hours Hotel will turn into a fashion house for a weekend with pop-up-stores, bars, fashion shows and djs from 10.-12. October. If you’re a fashion designer, get in touch, there are still some rooms to be taken over by young talents. And if shopping, beauty, fashion and parties all in one sounds like heaven to you: I have 5x2 tickets to give away. Just send me an email and let me know why you have to be there and they could be yours.

Dinghy is a lovely little bar with a colourfully decorated forecourt right at Schanzengraben. Next to good coffees and a varied menu with a few selected dishes each day, they also offer a classic «Italian Aperitivo» from Wednesday to Friday. It’s probably one of the few places where you can find some Mediterranean flair this rainy summer.
Dinghy, Brandschenkenstrasse 5, 8001. Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 9 am

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Blossoming gifts
 

My latest recycling discovery is the wrapping paper by Eden’s paper. After the gift is given and unwrapped, you can bury the paper in the earth. With a bit of luck and dedication the inserted seeds will grow into something edible. Three different kinds of papers are available: «Super Food», «Summer Salad» or «Flower Power» - made only from natural colours of course.

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: New in town
 

Although I believe that you receive all essential information from me that you need to assimilate in Zurich, I’m aware that there are some of you, who’d like to know even more about Zurich, the system and its bureaucracy. «Neu in Zürich» is a service by the cantonal council and what it lacks in style it makes up with information. Here you can find everything you'll ever needed to know about health, education, social security, police and customs.
