There are 3 branches of the Swiss gourmet burger chain Holy Cow and one of them was just on the way to my hotel, so it was just a matter of time, before cravings and curiosity took over, and I went inside to see what it was all about.
It’s still NYC Restaurant week, and even though I didn’t plan to go to Beauty & Essex, I’m easy to convince. The restaurant/bar/lounge has long been one of my favorite cocktail places in Lower East Side. I’ve also had dinner there before, and the food is nice, so Tuesday night, I went for my second NYC Restaurant Week dinner.

Poul arrived in Denmark yesterday and we are now at my parents’ place in Jutland. Today we drove to the beach with my sister and my mom and went for a short walk along the coastline. In the summertime, the beach is always packed with people, but at this time of the year, we were the only ones there. The beach is really conveniently located right at the end of one of the major streets in Fredericia and when I was in high school this was the place to be, when the sun was shining.
On my second day in Zurich I took breakfast a little more serious and after some online research, I decided to check out Kafischnaps. The café was quite a walk from the hotel, but the weather was nice, so I didn’t mind.
Oh Vandal! While I’m feeling a bit too old for you I’m always enjoying your company. Some of your fusions are a bit of a hit or a miss, but within the category of restaurants that deep inside actually want to be nightclubs, you’re still among the best. You really know how to party, and your ambience will send anyone flying into Friday night. And you’re fun too! I think I like you.
After a cozy brunch on the 4th of July, Ehsan suggested that we all went down to Hudson River to try SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding). He’s a member of Manhattan Kayak + SUP, so he could bring a guest (his girlfriend Elena) along, and his friend Esther could also bring a friend (me). SUP is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time, so I was immediately up for it, I just had to go back and get my gym clothes.
Back in 286, Zurich’s two saints Felix and Regula were decapitated in 286. However, according to legend, they didn’t die immediately, but managed to pick up their heads and walk up a hill to pray before they died. Many years later, Charlemagne was passing through the city, when his horse stumbled upon the tombs of the martyrs. He took it as a sign from above, and decided to build Grossmünster on the grounds.
I’ve signed up for a gym membership at Equinox, so this morning at 7am, I was meeting with a PT to assess my overall condition. It wasn’t as bad as I suspected, but still with a lot of room for improvement. We set up some goals and on Saturday, we’ll dig into the more practical stuff such as what kind of exercise I should do to get fit, most preferably with as little effort as possible.
