Good Morning Ronster

 

So the results of last weeks referendum are in. As i predicted, the social housing initiative failed and there was a surprising result with regards to the regulation of taxis. We will see what this means for Uber in the coming months. But i was delighted to see that the ban on discrimination passed with a massive 63% majority. Well done Switzerland, i’m proud of you.

 

Give my love to the city

Workshop: Eat Your Stress Away

 

How are those new years resolutions going? Still drinking less and eating less meat? Or have you, like me, gone back to an orgy of excess every weekend? If you have then maybe stednitz.designyourlife can help. They will be hosting a workshop on Thursday with the title, «Let’s stop eating our stress», designed to help you identify foods that induce stress and how to cut them out of your life.

 
 
 

Thursday 6:30pm, Stednitz.Design Your Life, In Wingert 9, 8049

Shopping tip: Swap Shop

 

Freitag have always been at the cutting edge of innovation, re-cycling truck tarps to make bags for years and years. Now, they have their S.W.A.P program which allows you to swap your bag with other bag owners much like Tinder. On Friday, Freitag are taking the S.W.A.P program into the analogue world so you can meet, drink, eat and maybe…just maybe… find that perfect match. (For bags at least.)

Concert: Head Hitters

 

You know that you’ve had a pretty good career in the music industry if you can put out a «best of» album and, by that measure, UK indie rock band The Editors have had a pretty good career. This Friday they are going to be rocking out at Komplex 457 to promote their new compilation, Black Gold.

Film: Rock & Troll

 

Is it possible to suck and blow at the same time? The films that they show at the Kosmos Worst Movie night can actually achieve this feat. This Saturday they are showing Troll 2, a movie that stinks so bad that it has actually come full circle and been acclaimed as «The Best Worst Movie». Set faces on stunned and get ready to cringe…

Concert: Cooking Up A Storm

 

This Monday award winning Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook is performing at the Kaufleuten. Jesse is a guitarist who successfully combines flamenco with many other influences including Brazilian and Persian music but most importantly it is groovy as hell. I have 2 sets of 2 tickets to give away to the lucky Ronster who can e mail me the best reason for wanting to attend.

Film: Celluloid Surfers...Again

 

I love surfing, don’t you? But there is something rather exhausting with all the paddling, balancing and almost drowning in freezing cold water. Yeah, I’d rather watch a film of other people doing it properly. So…with all that in mind, Kosmos are hosting a Surf Film Night featuring not one, not two, but five surf films.

Eating: Super Bella Italia

 

Are you a lover of all things Italian? If the answer is si, I've discovered something for you: Il Salotto. This small bistro opened its doors a few weeks ago at 79 Badenerstrasse and gives you an authentic Italian holiday feeling, without the grazed arms and legs after falling off a rented Vespa. Besides really good coffee and fine piadine (try Casanova!) you will also find a great selection of Italian products for your home. Molto bello!

Il Salotto, 79 Badenerstrasse, 8004
Montag bis Freitag 7.00 – 22.00
Samstag 9.00 – 22.00
