Have a wonderful summer!

Happy Summer, Friends! We're signing off for the next few weeks to enjoy time with our families and manage some exciting personal matters - one of us FINALLY found the perfect apartment and the other FINALLY found the perfect job. So in order to give us time to make these transitions and (let's be honest) lay by the Lake as much as possible, we're going to take our August off as we do every year. We're excited to reconnect with you here in September.

To those who are vacationing outside of Switzerland, safe and restful travels; to everyone else, we hope to run into you around town soon!

Summer Activities

If you're around Lausanne in the coming weeks, here are a couple of events that we think you might like to check out...

Globus is hosting a brunch for kids! Seriously now, how cute is that?!

Stand up paddling for a good cause - All material rental costs and proceeds from food purchases will go to support local social agencies - AND you'll get a tan. Everybody wins.

Dinner and movies every Saturday night in Mon Repos park! Date night done right.

Restaurant Day: Who says you need to be a proper chef to run a restaurant?

Ping Pong tournament hosted by the Casino de Montbenon. Secret Ping Pong Master, this is your chance...

Did we miss something? If so, add it to our event calendar and we will update this post throughout the month...

Bon Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? We're heading off to Burgundy with some friends and are looking forward to good food, good wine, and good conversation. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Here's what caught our eye this week:

Perfect antidote for a bad day.

Beautiful images made from coffee.

We know it's still too warm, but this jacket (by one of our fave brands) is 40% off!


Would you do this?

We're sorry but this had us laughing out loud.

Love this lamp.

Oh this is cute for the littles.

We could find a lot of uses for this dress.

This is actually kinda cool.

We're excited about this movie.

A clever ad campaign to recruit more librarians.

Simple Summer Recipes

Parmesean Crusted White Fish with Sweet Potato Fries

We have to admit, our favorite part of this combination is the sweet potato fries. They are simple, packed full of nutrition, and go with just about any meal (we love pairing them with a big fat beef filet). The white fish in this recipe acquires the taste of whatever you put on it (which means it's pretty tasteless on its own), so be generous with your spices and garnishing. A nice green salad to go on the side, and voila. Simple, summery, scrumptious.

Inscape Room Lausanne

Picture this: you and a group of friends are locked into a room. Your one mission is to deactivate a device in 60 minutes by solving a series of puzzles and codes, using only what you can find in the room. You pull the latch down to lock the shelter and immediately the lights go out; the clock once marked at 60:00 has started to count down in a menacing red color, has begun.

The minute you turn onto the street where Foound's industrial building resides, the creative energy is blatantly obvious. A black and white mural beckons you to its entrance, swirls and lines that lead you right to the heart of an original and unique collaborative space for entrepreneurs and local artists.

July 20-July 26

Hope you guys all had a great weekend! Did you know yesterday was "National Ice Cream Day" in America? We think everyone should celebrate it, regardless of their nationality. As far as events this week go, we don't know if it's just us, but things seem a bit quiet around these parts and more shopkeepers are starting to shut down their businesses for their yearly vacances. But if you're sticking around this week, here's what's what you need to know and where you can go:

Need a break from the kiddos? L'écoline is hosting an Italian-themed week for children ages 2 1/2 up to 9. Sign up on their website.

Speaking of Italy, go watch an outdoor Italian movie this Saturday at Parc Mon Repos. See the full program here.

And of course, the music festival Paleo kicks off today and ends this weekend! Don't have tickets yet? No sweat, there are tickets still available here.

Are there any events we missed? Let us know or feel free to add your event to the calendar!

Bon Weekend

Photo by who else? Thanks Gabriel!

Happy HOT weekend Lausanne! How are you going to stay cool? One of us is literally leaving the country to hopefully find some refuge on the coast of Spain, while the other is braving the heat and celebrating Violet-the-intern's 2nd birthday (in a pool...we will sit in a pool the whole day). Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and find a bit of shade and a breeze. In the meantime, here's what caught our eye this week on the inter webs:

Le Fraisier

Over the weekend, we finally took the time to visit one of our favorite little lunchtime holes in the wall in Lausanne armed with our cameras and notebooks. It has been months that we’ve wanted to tell you about Le Fraisier, but we kept saving it for a weekend when we could take the time to savor the food and each other’s company in a season of life where time has become our most rare and precious asset. 

We’re so glad that we waited because being with a dear friend over a delicious lunch on a summer day in a city that we love…frankly, it doesn't get much better than that.
