Zurich (EN) : Zurich 30.07.2020: Water, The East Side & A Quiz

 
 
 

Hoi zäme

 

Another week goes by and we have another great new flavour at Gelati Tellhof. This weeks offering is made with honey from the Langstrasse and is called «Apartment With Sun Deck» in dedication to all those lucky people that have great views over the city.

 

In other news, the last few month have been tough, even for me so you may notice a «Support Ron» button in the articles. I don’t want to become a corporate schill so if you want to make a donation here it helps keep me independent.

 

Finally, as a special treat for the Swiss National Day, I have 24 cans of Moretti Beer to give away. Hit the link to find out how you can win. Have a great weekend and…

 

Give my love to the city

Festival: Ebony & Ivory

 

As you Ronsters well know, i love live music and have been starved of opportunities to see gigs these last few months. But what is my favourite instrument? Well, after the bass guitar, i love the piano and thankfully Moods jazz club are presenting a full program of piano led music under the moniker, Piano Encounters.

 
 
 

30th July - 9th Aug, Moods, Schiffbauplatz 8005

As you all know (you Ronsters do know don’t you?) Saturday is Switzerland's birthday and what better way of celebrating than with a bit of silliness. Between 2pm and 6pm the Chinagarten will become the location for a battle royal. The weapons? A water pistol. The ammo? Er…Water.

 
 
 

Saturday 2pm, Chinagarten, Bellerivestrasse 138, 8008

I know i’m often writing about Rote Fabrik but it's only because they so consistently kick ass. There really has been a lot going on there and this week is no exception as the Backslash Festival is taking over. There is a full line up of live acts but, truthfully there is too much to mention here. Check out their page for the full info.

 
 
 

Sat 3pm, Rote Fabrik, Seestrasse 395 8038

Shopping tip: Go With The Floh

 

If you and your partner are split over whether to go paddling then there is also the Flohmarkt am See taking place at GZ Wollishofen. Browse their wares whilst watching your significant other repeatedly falling into the crystal waters of the lake.

Concert: Clean Socks Only

 
Last week i expressed my deep love for the Barfussbar which takes place in the Frauenbadi. This week there is yet another event, this time featuring live music from local musical combo Pillowism. If you missed the opportunity to visit last week now would be a great opportunity with live music to boot.

Audiolicious: Ron's Summer Playlist

 
No summer is complete without a playlist with many «guilty pleasures» reminding you of balmy summer nights and romantic trysts. But this year has already been terrible so i’m not going to subject you to «The Ketchup song» or worse, «The Macarena». Instead, i’ve come up with a summer playlist featuring local artists, right from the city of Zurich. Click here to subscribe to the playlist.
