This week’s top events

Text: Eva Hediger

Brightly painted eggs, a pop-up café and Game of Thrones ¬– every Monday we tell you about the events you don’t want to miss this week.


Game of Thrones

Cinema – Monday 15 April, 8 pm

It’s nearly time to say goodbye to the war, sex and dragons. The last season of Game Of Thrones kicks off on Monday. Club Hard One is screening the first episode at 10:15 pm. Before and after the screening there’ll be a chance for a drink and a chat – no doubt revolving around the GOT plot.

Club Hard One, Hardstr. 260, 8005 Zurich, 8 pm


Chez Nous

Dining – Thursday, 18 April, 6 pm

At the end of March, Café Chez Nous posted a photo of an elderly woman rolling out pastry. The caption read: ‘Grandma is already testing the best recipes for you.’ Now it’s getting serious – the Chez Nous pop-up cafe opens its doors on Thursday. For six weeks you can call in for a coffee and sample the Grandma-approved sandwiches, soups and cakes.

Café Chez Nous, Sihlfeldstr. 63, 8003 Zurich, to 25 May



Egg painting

Crafts – Friday 19 April, 11 am – 2 pm

Are the eggs in your fridge still looking a little pale? Don’t panic! On Friday everyone is invited to leaf through feel-good books, paint on canvas, and paint eggs for Easter. The paint is provided, just bring along your own eggs. Drinks and snacks will also be available so that you’re not tempted to eat your eggs on the way home!

Paint Events, Bederstrasse 2, 8003 Zurich


15 years of Boyahkasha!
