Zurich (EN) : Zurich 16.09.2021: Beer, Queer & Mountains

 
 

Good Morning Ronster

 

The Bundesrat has an annoying habit of releasing information at a time that is too late in the day for me to write about but you didn’t need to be Nostradamus to see the vaccine passport coming. But what is really important to know is that as of the 1st of October, testing is no longer going to be free which is going to make a night out even more expensive (Unless of course you've had covid or been vaccinated.)

 

But on a more positve note, lovers of yoga can attend a free yoga session on Saturday, courtesy of Younion Yoga and Yalda. Click here if you want more details. (It’s in German but it’s all pretty clear.) Have a great weekend and…

 

Give my love to the city.

Shopping tip: Good For The Soil...I Mean Soul

 

I am often pretty shocked by the quality of fresh produce in the supermarkets. This week i’m going to take my business elsewhere, specifically to the Soil Food Market taking place in the centre of Sihlcity. The event is hosted by Soil To Soul, an organisation devoted to caring for the soil we grow our food in and its influence on our health. There will be 30 producers there providing us with sustainable, healthy and above all, delicious vegetables.

Concert: Happy 3rd Birthday Kater

 

Kater, Zurich’s top rock bar is celebrating its third birthday on Friday and they’ve got a special treat for you with a live concert from a fantastic singer/songwriter in Reto Burrell. I would describe Reto’s music as blues infused rock and on this particular gig he’s going to be keeping the music on a more acoustic tip. Check it out.

 
 
 

Friday 7:30pm, Kater, Kanonengasse 33, 8004

Shopping tip: Six Is The Magic Number

 
Yes, i know i’m repeating myself a bit with the Kreisflohmis but once i mentioned one i only think it’s fair to mention them all. But there is always some great stuff, (i have a new table in my living rom from Kreis 3,) and you get to meet some cool people. This weekend it is Kreis 6 taking over duties with bucket loads of locations on the north-east side of the river.

Film: The Mountains On Stage

 

I love the mountains but they can be cold. Wet. Dangerous. Sometimes i dream of enjoying the mountains from the comfort of an armchair but still haven’t found volunteers to haul my sorry ass up a mountain in a litter or sedan chair. Fortunately, this Tuesday, we can enjoy the mountains from the comfort of an armchair as Mountains On Stage are presenting a small festival of films featuring mountain activities such as climbing, skiing, paragliding and if my other journeys to the mountains are a guide, drinking.

Restaurant Tip: Afghan Anar

 
Afghanistan and Oasis are two words that might not necessarily be placed together in these troubled times but, in the case of Afghan Anar, they go together like love and marriage. In spite of being a stones throw from the bustling Langstrasse and Limmatplatz the restaurant and outdoor area feels like a calming world of its own. And the food is a world of its own too: Freshly made Afghan dumplings, delicately spiced stews and pilaff, mung bean risotto and lentil dishes. Another pomegranate spritz for the apéro and a balmy late summer evening becomes a dream.
