Good Morning Ronster

 

Hey Ronster, i’ve been busy. I’ve been calling in favours and making phone calls so you Ronsters have enough food and booze for Rooftop Day and i’ve got some amazing venues for the events. I’ve even been praying to a whole panoply of gods and deities to make sure that the weather is good and i even sacrificed a chicken. (well, I had a chicken sandwich.) Keep an eye on the website and there will be an extra newsletter next week with more detailed information. Have a great weekend and…

Give my love to the city.

Comedy: Concoct Comedy Competition

 

It’s battle of the improvisers night. No, i’m not talking about two musicians seeing who can disappear up their own posterior first. I’m talking about comedy. Fork and Bottle are hosting Theatre Sports which will see Zurich Improv Comedy slug it out against comedy group, Don’t Touch My Mushroom. The stimulus for the improv comes from the audience as does the marking so plenty of room for corruption and controversy.

 
 
 

Thursday 7:30pm, Fork & Bottle, Allmendstrasse 20, 8002

Stage: Men In Tights...Again

 

I don’t know about you guys but i often feel i need more culture in my life. But going to the opera or the ballet is so expensive. Well, this weekend there is no excuse as Opernhaus Zürich and Ballett Zürich are organising two events, both of which are free. On Friday there will be a screening of the Opera Werther (which is not live,) and on Saturday a live stream of the performance of Romeo and Juliet. I’ve never seen it, i hope it has a happy ending.

 
 
 

Friday - Saturday 6pm, Sechseläutenplatz, 8001

Festival: The Hip Kings Of Wipkingen

 

If Opera and Ballet are not your style then there is yet another open-air offering in the city, this time by the banks of the Limmat at Wipkingen. (or as some of my friends call it, Hip-kingen.) Openair Wipkingen boasts two stages that will be playing live music from 5pm on Friday and Saturday.

 
 
 

Friday 5pm - Saturday 5pm, Wipkingerpark, 8037

Festival: Josef's Best Fest

 

Josefwiese is one of my favourite haunts on a hot summers afternoon and this Sunday the kiosk there will provide double the fun as they are holding their own Josefwiese Fest. Live music, beer, fun and sun is guaranteed. Well, everything but the sun part i guess. Keep your fingers crossed and sunscreen on standby.

 
 
 

Sunday 1pm, Kiosk Josefwiese, Josefstrasse 197, 8005

Game: Don't Go Overboard

 

Do you like to play games? Then Stall 6 is the place for you on Tuesday as they’ll be hosting their games night. Don’t know the rules to the games? No one ever does. Monopoly? The best strategy is to be the banker and cheat. But, best of all, it is all served up with Margaritas and beer. Hooray.

 
 
 

Tuesday 5pm, Stall 6, Gessnerallee 8, 8001

Concert: Shhh...It's a Secret

 

Yes folks, it’s my very own Ron Voyage concert series and i have some great acts coming up. As usual, the lineup and location are top secret and by my life i will never tell you but if you are an adventurous soul buy a ticket (or tickets,) and the location will be revealed in all its splendour, by email, the evening before. Enjoy.

Drinking: Beer Here
 

Drinking: Beer Here

 

Is Zurich a beer town? This question formed the basis of a long discussion (last Wednesday in Gonzo,) at the bar with a new friend, (some guy with long hair whose name i have forgotten.) After a healthy and (sometimes,) heated chat, fuelled by the self same product, we came to this conclusion: Zurich is home to more and more breweries but is it a beer town? Have a look at the list and and i’ll let you decide.

Good to know: Take It To The Limmat

 

The summer days are upon us but what to do? I love the outdoor life but also love to relax on a summers afternoon. Fortunately Zurich offers a way of experiencing both without too much effort and (for Zurich,) a pretty small financial outlay. I am talking of course about floating down the river in a rubber boat.
