Zurich (EN) : Zurich, 23.05.2019: Monopoly, Reggae & Tales From the Wollyhood Hills

 
 

Good Morning Ronster

 
My newsletters are like buses. You get two in one week then you don't see one for ages. That's right Ronsters, i am taking a temporary hiatus due to the religious holiday next Thursday but in the words of Arnie S, «I'll be back.» To make sure you don't go stark staring mad in my absence I have added an extra couple of tips at the bottom of the newsletter.

In other news there is some great concerts this week and, as usual, i have a couple of pairs of tickets to give away. Have fun this week and over the long holiday weekend.

Give my love to the city

Film: Höngg If You're Horny

 

The weather has been frightful but the forecast is for better days ahead and what better way to celebrate more clement weather than watching a movie under the stars. On Thursday and Friday Openair Kino Honggerberg are showing Whiplash and Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. There is also a barbecue and live music before the film starts. I'd recommend bringing a warm jumper though.

Festival: Wollyhood Swinging

 

On Friday and Saturday Wollishofen (or Wolly-hood as it is sometimes wittily known,) is hosting it’s very own open air festival, the aptly titled Openair Wollishofen. The festival is taking place down by the lake, near to the ferry terminal so is a great location to eat, drink and dance over the course of the weekend. The cost? It’s free with the exception of the afterparty at the nearby Rote Fabrik.

Party: Japanese Safari

 

I love themed events so I am looking forward to Café Nordbrücke’s summer fest which takes place on Friday and Saturday. Friday night is Japanese themed and break out your pith helmet and rifle (if you are still allowed to own it,) as Saturday is Safari night. There is live music and DJs on both Friday and Saturday night so head over for a few drinks and a party.

 
 
 

Friday - Saturday 8pm, Café Bar Nordbrücke, Dammstrassse 58, 8037

Shopping tip: All A-Board

 

No family get-together would be complete without an argument over board games and what better way to relive all those ruined Christmases than going on the hunt for some new games. On Saturday Cafe Du Bisch Dra is hosting a board game market where you can buy new games or rid yourself of the edition of Monopoly that caused a ten year schism in your family. If you do want to flog a board game or two be sure to contact them first.

 
 
 

Saturday 11am, Café Du Bisch Dra, Geerenweg 23B, 8048

Concert: Meshell, Ma Belle

 

There are some people that are so talented that it makes you feel sick with jealousy. Me’shell Ndegeocello is definitely one of those people. Not only is she a wonderful singer but she is an amazing bass player and songwriter. If you need your weekly dose of funk and soul then head down to Moods on Sunday and check her out. Check the times too, it's an early start.

Concert: White Cliffs Of Dover

 

When Jimmy Cliff wrote Many Rivers to Cross he must have been thinking about Zurich. I mean there’s the Sihl and the Limmat and er… Well,whatever geographical location he was thinking about he is gracing Zurich with his presence on Wednesday with a show at the Volkshaus. His music is positive, beautiful and he is a genuine reggae legend and, for two lucky readers, we have two sets of tickets to give away. Hit the link for the competition.

Good to know: Like Hibernation But In Reverse

 

Summer is just around the corner. I know it doesn’t feel like that at the moment but i’m sure its ready and it’s coming…now…er…now….er…now.

One of the downsides of the summer season is that many of Zurich’s clubs close for the summer and only open for special events (such as street parade.) With that in mind, the weekend starting 31st May could be the last chance to get you hit of dancing, partying and generally having a great time. The holidays on Thursday and Friday also give you a free hit on Wednesday and Thursday night so no excuses, get partying and enjoy a long weekend in the clubs of Zurich while you can.
