"Heya Girls!"
Dear women, we need your help! Our source of income has completely disappeared. As you know, we have been sending CitySpotterGirl to you, our readers, every week for 11 years completely free of charge. We have been able to do this all these years because we have wonderful advertisers who place ads with us – from Viennese shops to large museums. (You can always recognise the ads by the word ANZEIGE under the ad photo). Due to the crisis almost all booked advertisements were cancelled – completely understandable, but life-threatening for us, unfortunately. I therefore ask you today from the bottom of my heart: Please support the CitySpotterGirl with a donation, no matter how small or large it may be! If every subscriber donated only 1 €, we could already pay the fixed costs for 2 to 3 months – journalists, graphics, IT, translators, rent etc. The crowdfunding platform Startnext has set up its own Corona site to support creative people. Every donated Euro you send us here goes to us 100%. (And there are a few fine thank you goodies.) Please help to carry your favourite newsletter through the crisis! So that we can continue to provide you with information, charm and humour in the future.
A heartfelt thank you – and stay healthy!
Your CitySpotterGirl

Kunst ab Hinterhof
Vienna's very first online vernissage truly is an unusual feat! Tonight, two curators of the show room Kunst ab Hinterhof will guide you through the new exhibition "CoWir20" via livestream from the backyard. All the works (paintings, photographic art, prints) have been specially created for this theme, for example by Sophie Esslinger and Linda Steiner. If you like something, you can download a printout for free or buy the original. A must-have is the goodie bag sent to you: it contains Ottakringer beer, Mannerschnitten and instructions for your personal chive bread. Which you only get when registering ;-)

zweigstelle delivers flowers
CitySpotterGirl might consider cut flowers "daily needs", but, unfortunately, the government does not. All flower shops have had to close, the Viennese nurseries are left with their beauties and are currently overflowing with spring flowers, which will all end up on the compost heap. The florists of the wonderful "zweigstelle" no longer want to watch this: Starting this week, bouquets will be delivered to your home on order! Within the Gürtel, bouquets are even delivered free of charge from an order value of 25 €. Exclusively flowers from Vienna, currently lots of tulips.

Ballet for Beginners
Just a bit of furniture moving and you'll be dancing away. Head ballerina Esther Kainz from the Ballettratten streams the beginners' course today via Zoom directly from the living room. Anyone can take part, regardless of physical condition and flexibility. No complicated balancing act in tulle tutu, but lots of stretching and coordinated use of all limbs. Don't worry, it’s explained step by step and as a sidekick the cat scurries through the picture ;-) After the email registration, the 1st trial lesson is free of charge, afterwards the one-hour unit costs 10 €. Leads to beautiful and long muscles.

 Weinzettl & Rudle
Couchcabaret with Weinzettl & Rudle
Being locked-in with your partner as vlog (video blog) on the net: Monica Weinzettl and Gerold Rudle have quite the guts. For something pretty funny! The "Couchkabarett" goes online every evening on YouTube. Insights into the relationship life of the cabaret artist couple are provided by their man-woman talks. Which is more romantic, the quarantine or the iceberg in Titanic? And anyway, are angels actually asexual? But so that they don’t just slouch on the couch all the time, the wife takes her Gerold who’s all thumbs into her “Weltverschönerin” workshop. Cabaret begins!

Trzesniewski Sandwiches
If you have run out of ideas what to cook every day: Back to the basics, because delicious bread is simply always a good idea. The unpronounceable slices from Trzesniewski are now coming to your home contactless at reduced prices. From 20 pieces of 1.40 each, they even cut the delivery charge. Incidentally, the most popular among the Viennese is the classic bacon and egg, a spread that is still made according to the recipe of the great-great-grandparents even after more than 100 years. More decadent is boiled beef with horseradish and cucumber. Deliveries are made daily until 19:00. Payment is only possible cash-free.

 Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten
Sale at Augartenporzellan
Because the Easter Bunny is sure to wash his paws, he is allowed to come by despite social distancing: Collectors can now purchase very special Easter decorations at the Augarten factory outlet. High-quality porcelain eggs display beautiful paintings and are sometimes up to 50% off. Also on offer are gold-encrusted underplates in many bright colours, flower-decorated tea services and other pretty items. This porcelain is genuine traditional craft and is created in artistic handicraft. Not quite cheap, but beautiful and really valuable.

Levante Cuisine by NENI
We do miss watching the hustle and bustle at the Viennese Naschmarkt in the restaurant of NENI-Mama Haya Molcho a bit. Her online cooking course might not bring back the market bustle, but it does bring oriental cuisine to your plate. On four (!) hours of video material with 22 cooking lessons she shows Israeli classics: from hummus, tahina and sweet potatoes to babaganoush, fish and lamb. Very soon you can bury your toes in the sand again in Molchos Tel Aviv Beach Club at the Danube Canal (managed by her especially good-looking sons). Hopefully. First food, then beach.

 Wiener Konzerthaus
Haydn’s “The Creation”
Great concert moments are currently available free of charge: the Wiener Konzerthaus brings them to the screens as on-demand video for free. The prelude is Joseph Haydn's masterpiece "The Creation". Under Giovanni Antonini, the Bavarian Radio Chorus and the ensemble Il Giardino Armonico will perform, recorded in the Great Hall. The piece powerfully deals with the creation of the world and tells the biblical story from days one to six. A simple registration is all that is needed, and further musical highlights will be coming online once a week from now on.

Corona-Collection for Wien Museum
Hobby historians are currently on a treasure hunt. The history of Vienna may be lying around in your own four walls. Yes, really! The Wien Museum also believes this and asks for photos and things from life in times of Corona – so that future generations will know what the Corona crisis meant for Vienna. Historically valuable could be the notes for neighbourhood help from the staircase, the self-stitched face mask to pass the time, a crocheted key ring of the virus or your Corona diary. One's own stuff as part of the city's history in a display case: kind of cool.

My Darling Quarantine
Short film fans can now enjoy a cool festival that’s happening online. For "My Darling Quarantine" a new online programme with 7 short films is presented today. All of them deal with dystopia, the counterpart of positive utopia. The films tell fictional stories set in the future without any guarantee of a happy ending. The audience is then allowed to vote for their favourite film among the 7 candidates. There is also a good cause behind it: Donations are made to support Doctors Without Borders and those in the creative sector affected by recent cancellations.

Doing something for your body – before it hurts. Today’s workout by Orthopädiezentrums Hietzing is about the knees. Sport-physiotherapist Michi Novak shows how it’s done live on YouTube. The centre also provides plenty of healthy input via Facebook: Exercises for mobility, stability and strength, which you can do in between. Expert Cornelia Dittmar provides advice on TCM diet. Anyone who misses the stream can look it up there. Also available for back and shoulder. Thus the revenge of the wrong posture at the improvised workplace won’t be that bad.

Player Josef Hader
Stupidest day of the week, Wednesday. In German, it’s not even allowed to have the title "day” (“Mittwoch”). At least the Wednesday evening can be saved – with black humour by Josef Hader on his free on-demand channel. Yippie! Two cabaret highlights are already available. In "Hader spielt Hader" he whirls five programs into one. The piece is compared to an earthworm, because it grows again every year despite cuts. There are encounters with Hitler, Himmler, a few popes and even Reinhold Messner drops by. You can also watch "Hader muss weg", more will follow soon.

Sew your own mask
Whoa, starting on Wednesday, they will distribute mouth-nose-masks for grocery shopping, but if you prefer something a bit more fashionable, just make your own mask! It is best to pick up fabric leftovers in the neighbourhood, but it is important that they are washable at 60 degrees or more and woven tightly together (dish towels or cotton shirts are good!). The tutorials are springing up like mushrooms everywhere, if you want to sell your unique designs, you can network here. This also applies to fashion victims who then want to order the pretty mouth fashion online.
