Zurich (EN) : Zurich, 25.07.2019: Pipes, Cocktails & Concerts

Hey Hey Ronster

 

Good morning Ronster. Hope you are enjoying the hot weather, a cold drink and a refreshing dip in the lake. As August is upon us it is time for the Swiss national holiday and what better way to celebrate than to try to learn «Schwiizerdütsch». In conduction with ENAIP.ch, i am able to offer a great competition which gives you a chance to win a Swiss German course.

 

As it’s this great country’s birthday I won’t be around next week but I have added some ways to enjoy the day. Have a great week and Swiss National Day and…

 

Give my love to the city

Party: Let's Go Rundfunk Again

 

This Thursday heralds the start of the annual Rundfunk and no Zurich summer would be the same without at least one evening at the Landesmuseum. There is always great drinks, some wonderful street food and a relaxed atmosphere. Oh yeah, and great DJ’s. No excuses for not visiting mind, it runs until September the 6th.

 
 
 

Thursday 5pm, Landesmuseum Zurich, Museumstrasse 2, 8001

Eating: Ethiopian Food

 

I must admit, i’m not that familiar with Ethiopian cuisine but this Thursday gives me an opportunity to get better acquainted. Haile’s Taste of Ethiopia is taking over the kitchen at the Alehouse - Palmhof until the 11th of August. Whilst the menu will be transformed the Alehouse will still serve its delicious selection of craft beers and snacks.

 
 
 

24th July - 11th Aug, Alehouse - Palmhof, Universitätstrasse 23, 8006

Festival: Hot Town, Summer In The City

 

One of the great things about Zurich is that it sees way more than its fair share of international artists. But what of local acts? Stadtsommer provides a stage for many local acts with concerts taking place away from the usual, obvious locations. Concerts take place on Thursday through Saturday this week, and Friday and Saturday the following week, with 10 acts on over the five dates. Check out the Facebook for lineups and locations.

 
 
 

Thurs 24th - Sat 26th, Various Locations

Party: Good Basis For The Future

 

On these long summer nights you don’t want to be indoors, you want to be out dancing under the stars. Zukunft are obliging by hosting a Block Party in the courtyard behind the club where you’ll be able to dance to electronic sounds until the police shut it down.
Alternatively, if you prefer your entertainment a little more varied, Basis Kult are holding their own festival with a line up of DJ’s and live acts.


Saturday 4pm, Zukunft, Dienerstrasse 33, 8004

Saturday 2pm, Kulturplatz Basislager, Aargauerstrasse 14 - 94, 8048

Drinking: Spy vs Political Activist

 

I am a big fan of cocktails (as you know,) and Raygrodski and Matahari have two of the best mixologists in the business. This Sunday, Felix will be hosting Matahari’s Ravi Böhler who will serve 3 classic tiki drinks and Raygrodski’s Marco Colleli will be coming up with a twisted variation on Ravi’s drinks. Straight or Twisted? Who will win? One thing is certain, the loser will be my liver.

 
 
 

Sunday 6pm, Felix, Kalkbreitestrasse 8, 8003

Concert: Th!nk About !t

 

Normally i wouldn’t write about an event this size but an exception must be made for anyone who has an exclamation mark in her name. P!nk will be playing at the Letzigrund next Tuesday and, as i write this, there is a few tickets still available. I once met her (Clang) and she was charming and lovely but more importantly, an amazing singer and performer. Take this opportunity to see her if you can.

 
 
 

Tuesday 7pm, Stadion Letzigrund, Badenerstrasse 500, 8048

Concert: The Wolf Hits Zurich

 

If stadiums are not your thing then there is always the Kaufleuten. This week they play host to legendary Tex-Mex rockers, Los Lobos. This band have always been embedded in my mind as the band that hit number one with their cover of “La Bamba,” and have been nominated for induction into the rock and roll hall of fame. Hey Ronsters, guess what? I have two sets of tickets to give away.

 
 
 

Tuesday 7pm, Kaufleuten, Pelikanplatz, 8001

Good to know: What A Slide
 

Good to know: What A Slide

 

Nothing screams summer fun more than gliding down a plastic tube into freezing cold water. The water up the nose, the feeling of unbridled terror when someone is trapped in the pipe in front of you. And let’s not forget the issue of missing bathing suits (or as one friend of mine managed to do, burn a hole through his swim suit). Actually, i really love a water slide and fortunately Zurich has a few of them. I have listed by length with the shortest first because in this particular case size does matter.

Good to know: 728 Years Young
 

Good to know: 728 Years Young

 

In early August 1291, the cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden signed an oath of confederation and lo, Switzerland was born. On August 1st this auspicious event is vigorously celebrated with many traditional Swiss activities such as hiking, eating cheese and cooking sausages on sticks. But if you don’t fancy donning your hiking boots and sharpening your Swiss Army knife here are some alternative ways to celebrate within the city.

 
Happy
 
Birthday
