Good Morning Ronster

 

It’s not far away and i for one am excited. On the 29th of June it is Rooftop Day and the roof terraces, gardens and courtyards of the city will open up for parties and events. As usual the program is top secret but i can tell you that there will be around twenty events happening across the city. Save the date and keep an eye on next weeks newsletter and the Facebook page for more information. In the meantime...

Party: Like An Amboss

 

Not only do Amboss Rampe serve great beer but they also throw a great party. This Thursday they host the Amboss Gold Sommerfest and there will be a massive line up of DJ’s, playing a pretty comprehensive variety of styles. There is also a live act thrown into the bargain too. Bring your dancing shoes…and your drinking shoes.

 
 
 

Thursday 5pm, Amboss Rampe, Zollstrasse 80, 8005

Protest: Strike, Strike, Strike

 

Strike, Strike, Strike. Switzerland has traditionally lagged behind the rest of Europe in terms of women’s rights and equality (which i wrote about here,) and this Friday is a day where the women of Switzerland can protest and air their grievances. In addition to the call for all women to strike on Friday there are protests and rallies all across the city which can be found on the interactive map on the 14juni.ch website.

Party: Take Pride

 

Friday and Saturday sees the 25th edition of the Zurich gay pride festival and if you are not out supporting the women of Switzerland then show some love for the LGBTI community. Or better yet, do both. The festival is centred around Bürkliplatz and Sechseläutenplatz and as well as political and historical information and events there is a great line up of international live acts. There is also a march which starts at Helvetiaplatz and meets on Saturday at 12pm.

 
 
 

Friday - Saturday, Bürkliplatz and Sechseleutenplatz, 8001

For the thalassophiles (look it up,) amongst you Frau Gerolds Garten, Urban Surf, Surf Zurich and Montagsmarkt Presents are hosting their annual surf fair. If you are a surfer, body boarder, stand up paddler, mermaid, merman or mass mer-derer then head down and join Zurich’s surfing community. The day starts with the surf fair from 10am and continues into the night with the beach party.

Shopping tip: Bargains Are Coming Soon

 

If striking, pride and surfing have left you feeling a bit exhausted then perhaps the comparatively serene endeavour of shopping will help. This Sunday Coming Soon are hosting a flea market so have a rummage for some bargains or simply sip a glass of wine and watch others toil in search of a bargain.

 
 
 

Sunday 12pm, Coming Soon, Rolandstrasse 9, 8004

39 Steps To Shanghai

 

When a friend offered to take me out to Bund 39 for a meal a very familiar image of Chinese cuisine entered my mind. But on arrival any pre-conceptions about about Chinese cuisine were quickly dispelled.
