Good Morning Ronster

 

After another scorching week i bet you can’t wait to find out what Gelati Tellhof's latest offering is. Head in and ask for an, appropriately named for these times, «Illegal Outdoorparty.»

 

Talking of the weather, were any of you Ronsters caught in Tuesdays sudden rainstorm. I’ve never seen the bathers by the lake move so fast. Picture featured below. Any hoo, have a great weekend and…

Festival: Highest Spek

 

Yes, it’s that time of year again and Zurich’s arts community (and performers from all over the world,) come together for Theater Spektakel. For obvious reasons, Theater Spektakel have had to have a major rethink of how the festival is structured so it will not be focused on Landiwiese as in previous years but will use numerous venues around the city as well as streamed shows. Check out their website for the full info.

Party: Underneath The Arches

 

The shopaholics amongst you must be familiar with Im Viadukt. A great place to get British Cheese and Beer and a whole variety of other great stuff. Well, they are celebrating the end of the summer, (although it seems a bit premature to me,) with a chance to enjoy their own mini festival.

 
 
 

Friday 5pm, Jenseits Im Viadukt, Viaduktstrasse 65, 8005

Concert: That Helsink-ing Feeling

 

Festivals are banned this summer but human ingenuity always prevails. Helsinki Klub are getting away with it by super-spreading their Mini-Residenz-Festival out over the course of the coming weeks. The actions kicks off this Saturday with Zurich based, post-modern swingers, The Sheiks.

 
 
 

Friday 7pm, Helsinki Klub, Geroldstrasse 35, 8005

Festival: Circus Minimus

 

Many of you will be unfamiliar with Zurich’s Zirkus Quartier, hidden away between Altstetten and Wiedikon but this weekend is a perfect opportunity to get better acquainted. Over Saturday and Sunday they invite you to take part in their festival, enjoy some live music, drink some drinks, enjoy some street food and of course there is the obligatory «Flohmarkt.»

Shopping tip: Welcome To The Jungle

 

If you like plants, (and i know a few people that do,) then head down to the Amboss Rampe as they, in conjunction with Bergamotte, are holding their Pop-Up Jungle with cheap(ish) plants on sale. Be aware, you have to book in advance so the booking link is here.

 
 
 

Weds - Sat, Amboss Rampe, Zollstrasse 80, 8005

Causes: Paris Of The East

 

If you have ever been to Beirut you’ll know that it is a beautiful place, full of lovely people and is, like Zurich, a great and fun city. But they don’t have the best luck and armed conflict, covid and now last weeks explosion have wrought chaos in the city that was once described as the «Paris of the East». If you want to help, no matter how small, here is a list of organisations that you can donate to.

«Impact Lebanon» Crowdfunding Campaign


Lebanese Red Cross


UNICEF


Humanity & Inclusion


List of other NGO
