Zurich (EN) : Zurich 14.01.2021: Kilos, Coffee & Pants

 
 

Good Morning Ronster

 

Yesterday the BAG and Bundesrat announced a strengthening of measures designed to halt the spread of new variants of Covid-19. Home office becomes mandatory again and non-essential shops will have to close. Schools and ski-areas will be closed at the discretion of individual cantons. Gatherings of over 5 people are now also prohibited. Please be sure to check (and comply with,) the new regulations which will be published in more detail on SwissInfo.

 

But it’s not all bad news. This week i have three great prizes to help beat the January blues in my «Januarloch» competition as well as some vouchers for the European Outdoor Film Tour to give away. Scroll down and get writing to win.

 

In other news, a certain Mr Trump will be spending his last days at the office. Will the staff buy him card? Will Joe Biden bake him a cake? As Donald has been barred from every social media platform known to man i guess we’ll never know. Stay healthy and safe and...

 

Give my love to the city

Contest: We're A Winner

 

It’s the second week of January and, once again, i have some fantastic prizes to win in my «Januarloch» competition. This week you have the opportunity to win an amazing coffee machine, the Zuriga ES 2. Or maybe you could go up, up and away by winning an exhilarating balloon ride from stark & vernetzt. Or you could exercise your culinary skills by winning either a soup machine, a joghurt and ice-cream machine or (my favourite,) a multi purpose food processor, all from Betty Bossi. Click the buttons and hit the «Dann schreib mir jetzt» to let me know why you would like to win.

Shopping tip: Vintage Chic By The Kilo

 

If you are a vintage clothing fan shopping online doesn’t really cut it. There is nothing like browsing rails of clothes and trying them on. Fortunately Vinokilo are hosting their Vintage Kilo Sale this Thurs, Fri and Sat with some great fashion statements (or tragedies) available by the kilo. To avoid overcrowding you have to book a slot for shopping so check out the FB (It’s in English too,) and get rummaging.

 
 
 

Thurs 12pm - Fri 11pm & Sat 10pm, Tanzwerk10, Pfingstweidstrasse 101, 8005

Film: Outdoors, Indoors

 

If the full force of nature doesn’t stop the European Outdoor Film Tour then why should Covid? Okay, they’ve gone online but this Tuesday sees the release of Episode 3 of the E.O.F.T Basecamp series. Sit back in your nice warm living room with some fresh popcorn, fire up the flatscreen and imagine you were out there in the elements, freezing your ________ (insert body part here,) off.

But that's not all! I have two vouchers to give away that will give you free access to the previous episode. Click the button and then drop me a line to let me know why you need to see E.O.F.T Basecamp.

 
Win Win Win

Party: Pants Or Trousers

 

It is said that Scotsmen do no wear underwear under their kilts, preferring the icy winds of the north to caress their undercarriages. Well, this Saturday underwear is a necessity but little else as Alternative Reality attempts the annual «No Pants Subway Ride» on trams in Zurich. They are boarding the tram at Bellevue and whilst they say participation is limited to 10 people but i’m not sure how this will be enforced. Check out their page to find out more whether you wish to take part or simply be a voyeur. Oh yeah... and don't forget to wear a mask.

p.s. English people. Remember pants is US English for trousers. Please wear pants.

p.p.s. Don't belive this is a thing? Check out the video.

Crowdify Projekt: Bean There, Done That

 

There is a murky world surrounding coffee with «fair trade» often being anything but fair so i thought i would mention Sweet Bean Coffee, a coffee company with a difference that is looking to raise money through Crowdify. They purchase their coffee predominantly from female producers and are looking to expand their business with a second coffee roaster. Check out their project page and buy some goodies to support them.

Good to know: Yabba Dabbo Do

 

As I was folding yet another pizza box and throwing it in the recycling it occurred to me how much waste is created by food delivery and takeaway. Single use boxes create literally tons of waste which is poor both for the environment and economically. So what’s the answer?

Dabbavelo will deliver food in Zurich in reusable containers called «Dabbas». You pay a 6 CHF deposit for the «Dabba» and it is delivered, by bike, to you. Afterwards you can keep the container for as long as you like but when your next Dabbavelo delivery arrives you can return your empty containers for ones filled with delicious food. A great solution for local restaurants (who, lets face it, are having a tough time,) and for the environment.
