It’s grey, it’s snowy, it’s cold, and it’s still January. Don’t know about you, but we find this month one of the toughest to get through here in Switzerland (it may be our Texas/California heritages ;)). But one thing we do love about Lausanne, is the fact that there seems to always be a cozy spot, a creative invitation, or a cultural event just waiting in the wings. Here’s what’s going on this week in and around our lovely little town. Have a great week!


Jazz night at Etoile Blanche.


Soirée Slam at Bleu Lézard.
