Good Morning Ronster

 

Hey Ronster, i’m back from my holidays and raring to go, scouring the city for lots of fun and exciting things to do and see. This week, the night sky has a treat in store for us in the form of the Perseids meteor shower, there’s a great gig in town and of course, Street Parade. Have a great week and…

 

Give my love to the city

Exhibition: Night Of The Triffids

 

The botanical garden in Zurich is always a beautiful place to visit and this Thursday they are inviting you to share a summer evening, amongst the fauna. You will be invited on short tours and there will be a culinary element as well as the slightly mysterious, «Bat attraction». A great opportunity to get back to your roots.

 
 
 

Thursday 8pm, Botanical Garden Zurich, Zollikerstrasse 107, 8008

Festival: Like A Sloth

 

As you all know, Zurich is gearing up for the Street Parade with all the craziness and fun that that entails. But if you want a more chilled out experience with slightly fewer drunk tourists head to the, wonderfully named, Lethargy Festival. Now into its 25th year, they boast a massive line up of live acts and Dj’s, running right through the weekend. I’m certain it will be anything but lethargic.

 
 
 

Fri 7:30pm - Sun 9pm, Lethargy Festival, Seestrasse 395, 8038

Eating: Thai Jack In A Box

 

I love Thai food and what better time to open a pop up restaurant near Bellevue than on the day of Street Parade? Soi Thai are opening their doors for the 5th year on Saturday and my last experience there was of some great food. Be prepared to wait though, you can’t make reservations but it is worth the wait.

 
 
 

Aug 10th - Sept 14th 5:30pm, Soi Thai, Rämistrasse 24, 8001

Party: What? Another City Wide Party?

 

Did you know? This weekend is Street Parade. Yes, the city will be awash with partying and brightly coloured trucks playing a wide variety of music, all the way from EDM to Techno. But it is not just about the party at Sechseleuteplatz and along the coast of the lake. Hive, Zukunft, Kauz and many other clubs will be open and partying through into Sunday too.

Concert: Keeping It Eel

 

Fan of alternative, indie rock? Then haul yourself down to X-TRA as The Eels will be performing there this Tuesday. After a glorious performance at last years Blue Balls festival this is their first visit to Zurich since 2014. They’ll have you doing the «conger» in no time for what is sure to be an «electric» performance. In fact it will be R-eel-y good. (i'll shut up now.)

 
 
 

Tuesday 7pm, X-TRA, Limmatstrasse 118, 8005

Good to know: Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

 

A wise person once said, «The best things in life are free» and nature always provides the most awe inspiring spectacles. This week the universe has a light show on offer for us in the form of the Perseid meteor shower. But where to watch? Light pollution makes it tricky to see anything skywards so, after years of research, skulking in the shadows, i have come up with some of the darkest spots in Zurich. Click the button for an interacive map of the darkest spots in Zurich.

Good to know: Bolder and Boulder

 

As an expert climber, (cough) i am aware that many of you Ronsters may want to follow in my footsteps as i ascend sheer rock faces with the agility of a spider crossed with a mountain goat. But where to start? You can’t begin by scaling the north face of the Eiger. A good place to start is with Bouldering, a more forgiving variant of climbing. Fortunately Zurich has many locations with climbing walls where you can hone your skills without the prospect of certain death.
