Shopping tip: Marta And Kreis...Oh No, More Floh!

 

If you are into retro and vintage clothing then swing by the «Nachtflohmarkt», hosted by the lovely people at Marta-Flohmarkt.ch. If you don’t know them they have fantastic second hand stuff in two stores in Zurich, (and one in Luzern,) and tonight they are open late. Grab a drink and have a browse.

But don’t worry if you already have plans for Thursday night. There is the Kreisflohmi on Saturday with Kreis 5 playing host. Once again there is loads of locations.

 
 
 

Thursday 6pm, Marta, Lessingstrasse 15, 8002 // Sat 10am, Kreisflohmi 5, Various Locations, 8005

Eating: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

 

Those that are personally acquainted with me know that i love a bit of spicy food and, by Thor, i have an asbestos stomach. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a fire eater as well Dr Brauwolf, in conjunction with fried chicken joint Yardbird, are hosting their 3rd annual Hot Wings Challenge. There is a 250 CHF restaurant voucher to be won as well as 24 beers but, even if you don’t take part, isn't it simply wonderful to watch the tears and tortured screams of your friends.

 
 
 

Friday 5pm, Dr Brauwolf, Räffelstrasse 26, 8045

Good to know: A Treasure Hunt
 

Good to know: A Treasure Hunt

 

Why are pirates called pirates? Because they arrrrrr!

Discover your inner pirate with a good old fashioned treasure hunt (i think the treasure here is Schnitzel) with the alliterative Cradle To Cradle Circular City Challenge. (It’s not quite the seven seas.) Things have moved on since X marks the spot - now there is an app with clues and i’m pretty sure Ann Bonny and Barbarossa would have disproved of the coffee and cake at the finish but nevertheless… Now fair warning! The clues are in German but…it does give you an opportunity to practice your German. (Or there is loads of translation apps.)

 
 
 

Saturday 12pm, Various Locations

Comedy: Take The Mica

 

Are comedians funnier when they are outdoors? There’s only one way to find out. This Saturday the A.S.S. are taking their stand up show to Micas Garten way over west in Altstetten. Not only will there be some great stand up acts but there is also a Micas plethora of food trucks and bars. Click here to reserve a seat for your A.S.S.

 
 
 

Saturday 8:30pm, Micas Garten, Badenerstrasse 790, 8048

Party: Raise The Vessel To Your Lips

 

Photobastei are reopening and my god, they’re going to make a party of it. The party, which is entitled «The Vessel», starts with dinner by Conny, then an apéro then dancing to a line up of four DJ’s. The good thing about this party is you can choose which parts you want to attend. Buy a ticket for the whole night or just rock up for the DJ’s which include «Superdeep» and the rather smutty sounding «Deep Dicks» Oooh errrrr.

 
 
 

Saturday 7pm, Photbastei, Sihlquai 125, 8005

Eating: Take To The Streets

 

The people of Zurich love a food truck. Not the grubby trucks serving kebabs and burgers that you see by the motorways of Europe but shiny and beautiful designed vans serving…well…kebabs and burgers too but gourmet items made with love and passion. This Wednesday sees the opening of the Street Food Festival which will run until the 10th of October. Great drinks, great music and, above all, a delicious variety of foods.

 
 
 

Wed - Oct 15th, Street Food Festival, Hardturmstr 401, 8005

Out Of Town: A Trip Up The Sihl

 

I love the Sihl valley. In spite of its close proximity to the city it still feels rugged and remote. Let’s face it, all there is is a river and a railway line. But nothing makes a good walk better than knowing there is cold drink and a hearty lunch at the end of it. Last Sunday i took a (very easy,) walk from Sihlbrugg to the Restaurant Sihlmatt which sits on, what can only be described as, an idyllic meadow on a bend in the river.

Good to know: Girls Shooting

 

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. We get a day off whilst the young folk of Zurich show that they are clinical killing machines, able to hit the eye of a bull from one hundred meters away. Those that are familiar with Zurich life will already know all this but for those that are new to the city i wrote all about «Knabenschiessen» here. (or click the buttons below.) But what do you need to know? Here are the important things.

1. We have a long weekend. (unless you work outside Zurich. Sorry.)

2. There is a «Chilbi», (that’s Swiss for funfair folks,) at Albisgüetli.

3. The last winner was a girl, Neva Menzi, and three out of the top four spots were occupied by female shooters.

4. You are very unlikely to see any shooting at all.
