"Heya Girls!"
Viennese ladies know her as one third of the legendary Guerilla Bakery. According to her own definition, she and her sisters showed hipsters how to get an orgasm thanks to sugar – first with countless cake pop-ups, then with a permanent cake café under her management. But Sarah Scharl is actually an actress. And actually her heart is at least as attached to cabaret as it is to sweet things. And so she began with stand-up comedy in the post-bakery era. After a long Corona break, it will finally start this week. “Super Single Sarah” asks essential questions: Are Millennials more hardened about love & sex than any other generation before? Are feminists immune to foot fetishists? And how could one exist in the pre-internet era without screenshotting WhatsApp messages of love interests to offer them to one's closest seven friends for analysis? An evening of feminist stand-up!
Wishing you a funny week,
Your CitySpotterGirl
Spektakel, Hamburgerstraße 14, 1050 Vienna. 29 April 20:00. 18 €. Web

The Art of Long Life
TCM calls it “Yang Shen Fa”: the art of long life. And let's be honest, who doesn't want a long, vital life without afflictions and a radiant appearance to go with it? TCM expert Ina Diolosa Schönemann reveals today in a lecture how this can be achieved. She explains what to look out for (in time), what you need to avoid and which physical exercises and foods help to live long and happily. The alternative practitioner will also give tips on power soups, herbs and moxa, a healing method that heats up the Qi. No previous knowledge is required. Attention: it’s online only!

Jedermann Razelli RMX
Raucous, noisy, scratchy and intoxicating: probably the most exciting actor in Austria at the moment is roaring through the Stadtsaal today! At the Salzburg Festival, theatre berserker Philipp Hochmair shone when he spontaneously stood in for the ill “Jedermann” Tobias Moretti. He also succeeded because he is intensively working on the role for his own project “Jedermann Reloaded”. Now, there’s another new interpretation of Hofmannsthal's mystery play, together with Kurt Razelli, which is located somewhere between avant-garde and electro-culture. Brilliant!

Kira Skov
Melancholic, magical, atmospheric. The song “If not the sun” by the award-winning singer, whose music is located somewhere between rock, jazz and intense singing, tells of the search for a greater meaning in times of defeat and crisis. The Dane knows what she is singing about, because she had to experience the loss of her husband and has dedicated many songs to him. On her current tour, Skov presents the new single as well as her most recent and very successful album “Spirit Tree”, on which she also sings duets with Mark Lanegan or Bonnie “Prince” Billy.

 Ritz Carlton
Speakeasy Bar at Ritz-Carlton
The ingredients: a little bit of Belle Epoque, a portion of Golden Twenties, plus glamour, mystery and a dash of Grand Marnier. This is the concept of the new bar that opens today at the Ritz-Carlton. However, without much fanfare, but clandestinely and behind closed doors – after all, it's the biggest secret of this week. Just like in the speakeasys of the 1920s, only those who know the code word will get in! But CitySpotterGirl knows how to do it, of course: you have to ask for the code in the hotel's restaurant Pastrami. And then off to the beautiful bar in the Marnier Suite!

World Qigong and Taiji Day
Getting into the flow of life. Every year, the last Saturday in April is proclaimed World Qigong and Taiji Day. So today, in all kinds of countries around the globe, the Far Eastern martial art is brought into focus and presented. In the process, body work, energy work and spiritual aspects are brought into harmony – thus turning fighting into an art. In Vienna, this day is celebrated with, among other things, a trial training in the Prater where you can get a first taste of the different styles of Qigong and Taiji. Just try and get a feel for it…

2 comedies at the Jewish Film Festival
God will fix it! Shortly before her wedding, a strictly religious Jewish woman's fiancé runs away. She prays to God to send her a husband after all and doesn't even think about cancelling the ceremony. She has been dreaming of marriage for too long. Whether a new candidate will be found that fast won’t be revealed here, the sequel follows in the cinema. The charming comedy is part of the series “Love and Mishpocha”, a main theme of this year's festival. The quirky film “Honeymood” also delves into the depths of love relationships.

From Evin with Love
“I'm still here, I love you!” This is the message of the self-made objects of imprisoned women from the notorious Evin prison in Tehran. The prison is known for its inhumane conditions – the imprisoned mothers have all publicly campaigned for women's rights in Iran and were sentenced on flimsy grounds. With their self-made handicrafts, they want to send their children at home a sign of love and connection: a bird in flight, dolls, embroidered fabrics, texts... As of today, touching objects from Evin prison will be on display at the Volkskundemuseum.

Well, here we go again! From now on, Tuesday evenings are firmly scheduled again. Tuesday lovers and fans of good beats in good company meet weekly at the Volksgarten Pavillon for the techno cafe and spend the hopefully soon warm evenings with DJs and drinks. If need be, they can even go on into the night. After all, not every day is a Tuesday. Today is the big kick-off event of the legendary Tuesday Club with Joyce Muniz, Functionist and Maex Bauer. So take out a cool outfit, put on your sunglasses and get in line. If you come early, you'll be in longer ;->

Elina Duni
A touching concert from the series: migration. And also a statement on the theme of farewell and departure. The Albanian singer Elina Duni sings powerfully and emotionally, full of sadness, melancholy and longing. Her folk songs, chansons and ballads are about all forms of migration. Because each of us has to leave something at some point or we can suddenly lose everything. She gives this painful feeling a detached yet expressive voice in her first solo programme “Partir”, which she also accompanies with piano, guitar and percussion. Listen in here!

Schuh Liesl warehouse sale
Somehow, shoe shopping here reminds us of our childhood: you went with your mum to the unadorned shop, and the shelves were filled with very different pairs of shoes, that were obviously not sorted by brand, but by size. This is also the case at Schuh Liesl – but luckily these days, you can choose what you want yourself ;-) And even if this is not a very hip shop: Schuh Liesl has all the usual brands, from Birkenstock to Clarks to Timberland. And when there's a warehouse sale, like right now, everything is up to 70 percent cheaper! Insider tip

Old Viennese cinemas
Comfortable seats with cup holders, armrests and popcorn in XL buckets. All well and good, but true cineastes set other priorities. Which means wooden folding chairs or battered plush chairs, instead of nachos you get Mannerschnitten and instead of dolby surround the whirring of the projector. Juliane Batthyany has captured the charm of the old Viennese cinemas, some of which are over 100 years old and in the process of disappearing. With a photo exhibition she pays homage to the classics among the movie theatres: Bellaria, Breitenseer Lichtspiele, Admiral.

Velo Peaches
This was definitely missing in Vienna: Velo Peaches is a feminist bike shop that celebrates openness, equality and awareness. When you enter the new shop, the smell of rubber immediately wafts around your nose. Naturally, you can buy bicycle inner tubes, spare parts and accessories here. In addition, chic, cool and fast bikes, among others from the brands Omnium and 8bar from Berlin. The frame sizes are all available in X-Small as well, specifically for women. The 3 owners also do repairs and service themselves – by the way, they first met each other on their boneshakers at a game of bike polo ;-)

Restaurant of the Week 
Tipps der Stadtspionin
Opened this week, already overrun on the first day: The latest gastro project of the Querfeld family of cafetiers is called Napoleon and is located in Kagran. The Freihof, dating back to 1494, was completely renovated for the ancient and now new inn. Each of the countless parlours and dining areas was furnished differently – always funny, often quirky (with embroidered pictures and photo wallpapers), in any case original. They serve typical Viennese dishes with a twist (also for vegetarians, like colourful turnips from the oven) and craft beer. Plus, a huge garden and service that doesn't buckle even under stress. It works!
