Zurich (EN) : Zurich 24.11.2022: Lights, Fondue & Kilts

 
 

Good Morning Ronster

 
This may be an unpopular opinion, but i really think winter is the best season in Zürich. The smell of snow is already in the air and i just can't wait for end-of-year festivities. Until then, you can already embrace the winter spirit by ice-skating around the Christmas tree at Dolder or grabbing a fondue at one of my 11 recommended places. Although, if the winter doesn't make you hungry but horny, you may want to check out the porn festival instead. Finally, less sexy but as relevant, scroll down for my low-down on the latest in local politics!

Give my love to the city

Festival: The Life Erotic

 

Okay, the Porny Days festival started yesterday but the annual festival of eroticism is back and bolder than ever. Even if you don’t attend one of the film events, or the workshops or the exhibitions it is worth checking out the list of events. Unfortunately i can’t name any of them here as many have x-rated titles that won’t pass the spam filter but believe me, they sound very intriguing.

 
 
 

Thursday - Sunday, Porny Days, Various Locations.

Sport: Twinkle Twinkle 11000 LED Lights

 

If you enjoyed the Halloween party on ice, the Dolder ice skating rink is coming at you with another­ – rather massive – attraction that you don’t want to miss. This Thursday, the traditional enormous Christmas tree with giant Christmas balls and light chains with over 11000 LED lights will be set up in the middle of the rink. Skating around the Christmas tree is a truly magical experience that is a staple in my winter activities and one of the main reasons why i love winter in Züri. You can bring your own pair of ice skates, but you can also rent them there. Golden tip, if you’re a beginner (like me), i find the hockey ice skates give the most stability. Grab some friends and go in for some gliding fun and mulled wine. Can’t wait to see you there!

 
 
 

Thursday, 9am – 10.30pm, Dolder Sports, Adlisbergstrasse 36, 8044

Stage: Paint The Town Red

 

Let’s kick the week off with some laughter. Tonight the Comedy Haus are presenting more English stand up with UK comic Red Richardson topping the bill. Okay, i know that Red Richardson sounds like he should be wrestling steer to the ground but he’s been a regular on The Stand Up Sketch Show on ITV2 and played packed houses at the Edinburgh fringe.

Concert: Rock & Kilts

 

I get the feeling that the Red Hot Chilli Pipers came up with their name before they actually started playing music. I mean, it’s a great name and wish i’d thought of it! But that aside, they are the most famous bagpipe band on the planet, fusing rock music with the unique sound of Scotland. And they are in town tomorrow, specifically at the Volkshaus. Click the button to check them out.

p.s. There is a great joke about bagpipes and an octopus. Check it out here.

Concert: Yin Yin But Not Yoga

 

Nope, i am not inviting you to come do yoga with me this time, but rather to Funk & Disco with me at the concert of YĪN YĪN. This Dutch band with South-East Asian influence is celebrating their new hyper-danceable album «The Age of Aquarius». Expect outer-spacey voice-samples combined with synth-sounds and a base that’ll make you want to groove. The ultimate way to finish your weekend with a bang! Have a little listen for yourself.

 
Music please

Concert: The Goddess of Cool

 

Not sure what I like more about Tess Parks, her edgy voice, her smart lyrics or her next-level sense of humour. Her song titles, like «Brexit at Tiffany’s» and «Do you Pray?» vouch for the latter. Tess moved from her native city Toronto to London to study phtopgraphy, but she spent more time writing music than taking pictures, and so she became The Goddess of Cool, as her fans lovingly call her. She gained further fame by opening for the Dandy Warhols and The Mary Chain. In Bogen F she will be the main act, and it is the Swiss Folk-singer Melissa Kassab who will be opening for her. Give these two amazing women a listen here.

Liquid Gold In A Pan: Where to Fondue in Zurich

 

Winter is settling in and with that, so is my appetite for melted, velvety, spicy liquid gold aka fondue. (Although I must admit i sometimes go for a cheeky summer fondue). Do you also want liquid cheese as dinner but you’re clueless of the gold’s whereabouts? Don't worry, I have you covered. I’m listing my favourite fondue places in Zurich. Let’s go!

Good to know: Warm Water, New Faces & Tax Relief

 
The Swiss electorate go back to the polls this weekend but this time there is no federal votes. That’s right, Switzerland has absolutely no issues to thrash out this weekend but there is still a few local issues that need the approval of the populace, the most exciting of which is the cities desire to be more sustainable and carbon neutral. But tax a deduction on the Krankenkasse is exciting too? Right? Hit the buttons to find out more.
