Mayday, AKA International Workers Day rolls around again and, at least in Zurich, we have a public holiday which means you don’t have to say no to that extra glass of wine or beer the night before. But lets not forget, this is a day to celebrate the workers contribution to society and with that in mind there is the annual 1.Mai Fest which takes place in the Kaserneareal on 1st of May and also on the following weekend. A protest is planned at Helvetziaplatz at 10am on Wednesday but if marching is not your thing then a more chilled program takes place on the weekend with bands, food and lots of stalls with ideas for alternative political and living ideas. Up the workers.
Tuesday 10 am, Helvetiaplatz, 8004 // Saturday and Sunday 12 pm, Kasernenareal, St. Jakobstrasse 61, 8004

2. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky
3. Ooki: All the way from Tokyo
Whenever a new Japanese restaurant opens somewhere, you can be sure that I’m not far behind. This new locale is called Ooki and serves gyoza, ramen, tempura, udon, Japanese curries and sake. The interior is very authentic, the
Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, email me [email protected], and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
