The other day, I walked by Macy’s on Herald Square just in time to catch the unveiling of the Christmas windows for 2017. It’s a rather big thing in NYC, but since I’m so bad at looking up the timings for events like that in advance, it was my first time to experience the unveiling.
When I was in Zurich back in August, I went on a short trip to Engelberg. The first day I went up to see the peak of Titlis, and on the second day, I decided to go on a morning hike at Fürenalp, which is another mountain in Engelberg. I had picked a trail called Grotzliweg (Grotzli = small pine trees in Swiss German), and it was supposed to take around 1.5 hours, which seemed manageable for my first solo hike.
We were on our way to the bar at Hyatt, but the Uber driver convinced us to check out Tao’s instead. In fact, he could need a break too, so he would join us..! Now that was a bit weird, but it turned out he was meeting up with some friends at Tao’s so it never got so awkward, as it could have been.
First dinner in Zurich was at Josef, which is a hip restaurant in industrial, super trendy Zurich West. You put together your own meal from a selection of small plates on the menu. 3 dishes are 53CHF, which is cheap for Zurich, considering that you’re at one of those achingly hip places which could easily charge double for the cool surroundings and the in-crowd clientele.
This weekend I went to Zurich once again, this time with AC and Myrvete. I’ve been to Zurich quite a few times lately, but it’s such a wonderful city, and even though the weather could have been better, it was still great to be back.
Maison Manesse was far, far up on my list, when Poul and I was in Zurich in September. I tried to book a table online, but I got an email back saying that they were fully booked that night and that they would let me know if anything changed. I didn’t hear from them, so I started looking for other options.
//I was invited to visit Coco and I didn’t pay for food and drinks//
Coco is the new poolside lounge on the 8th floor at Media One Hotel. Coco takes over where popular DEK on 8 left, and even though they just opened, and they’re still in the middle of fine tuning the concept, it already looks very promising. The theme is Miami which shows in both the menu and the surroundings that are even more sleek than before.
What to do when your flight is delayed and you’re stuck with meal vouchers in Copenhagen Airport? Well I decided to go to MASH and have a big and juicy ribeye steak. Rare, with fries and béarnaise sauce.
