Good Morning Ronster

 

As next Thursday is a public holiday there will be no newsletter next week but never fear, i'll be back on the second of June. But there is a lot going on this weekend, particularly if you are fan of live music. So much so that i have created a list of gigs this weekend. Scroll down to check it out.

Don't forget that Rooftop Day is only a few weeks away and if you have a garden or a terrace and you want to take part you can still register here. Have a great couple of weeks and...

Give my love to the city

Shopping tip: The Mountains Are Calling Back

 

The mountains aren’t just for winter and, as the snow melts, a whole new world of opportunities for hiking, cycling and climbing opens up. If this appeals to you but the budget doesn’t stretch to a new rucksack then head down to Dynamo this evening for their Alpin Flohmi which is in collaboration with Mountain Wilderness Schweiz and Public Eye. They’ve got all sorts of mountain sports equipment to buy or sell and, as we all know, re-using is good for the environment.

 
 
 

Thursday 5:30pm - 8:30pm, Dynamo, Wasserwerkstrasse 21, 8006

Concert: Gigs Galore

 

Normally I would recommend a gig (or maybe two,) but there is so much going on this week and i’d feel bad about missing anything out. So i have come up with a listicle, or a gigs-ticle or maybe, as it’s mainly pop music should I call it a popsicle, of shows happening this weekend and into next week.

Sport: Find Your Balance

 

Another wonderful way to enjoy the calm waters of the lake and river and get some exercise is to stand up paddle. This Saturday «Supswiss» over in Wollishofen are organising a stand up paddling tour through the city.

Okay, you might be feeling somewhat daunted if you have never done it so at 10am and 1pm on Sunday, Supswiss also offer regular beginners courses.

Good to know: They're Always Open

 

As you well know, Rote Fabrik is a favourite location of mine and this Saturday and Sunday they are «opening» the place up to the public with their Open Day. (Are they ever really closed?) They have a full on program with live music, DJ’s until late and on Sunday they are holding the obligatory Flöhmarkt, (for kids and adults by the way,) if you fancy picking up some clothes for the summer months.

 
 
 

Saturday & Sunday, Rote Fabrik, Seestrasse 407, 8038

Cinema: Video Rodeo

 

When Videoex presented their first festival of experimental film and video the ability to make videos was mainly in the hands of those that could afford expensive equipment or were incredibly creative. Starting on Saturday, (and running through to the 29th of May,) Videoex presents an incredible 24th edition of the festival with conceptual and technical innovation at the forefront. The festival is beautifully located as well, a stones throw from HB and the Langstrasse in the Walcheturm, (which is where i threw my party.) Check out their programme and drop by.

 
 
 

Sat 21st - Sun 29th, Videoex, Kunstraum Walcheturm, Kanonengasse 20, 8004

Exhibition: African Fashion

 

There is something incredibly special about African fashion. Bold colours, surprising patterns and subtle embroidery…oh yeah, and don’t forget the accessories. If you are a fan then head over to the Kunsthaus for the African Fashion Night which is taking place on Saturday and Sunday. The event features a boutique market, fashion show and afterparty which will take place on Saturday. Sunday is a bit more chilled with family oriented events.

 
 
 

Sat 11 am & Sun 10am, Kunsthaus, Heimplatz, 8001

Eating: Street Eats

 

Many a (boozy,)night has ended with a trip to a street food stand and there is something about eating outside, directly from your hands that adds to the experience. And that’s what makes the Street Food festival so good. Not only can you enjoy that «street dining» experience but there is so much choice and diversity in the cuisines. Fancy a raclette? No problem. Want to wash it down with cerviche? Can do! Combine it with a warm evening, friends and a few drinks and what could be finer? The festival starts this Wednesday and runs right through to the 26th of June.

p.s. The festival is cashless now so don’t forget your wallet/phone.

Film: Iran In Film

 

As there will be no newsletter next week i think it is important for me to mention the start of the Iranian Film Festival which kicks off next Thursday and will be running from Thursday 26th of May until the 1st of June. Taking place in the Arena Cinema complex in Sihlcity, this is the 8th edition of the festival and will showcase a pretty hefty 13 features, 9 shorts and 5 documentaries which will be subtitled in English for those who don't speak Farsi.

May 26th - Jun 1st, Iranian Film Festival
