There is a lot  to look forward to this week; including outdoor movies, festivals in Pâquis, Oktoberfest, an Australian festival and more! Ciné Chaises Longues: If you like outdoor cinemas, then grab your sweaters and blankets, and get ready to join this great initiative by Pré en Bulle – an association created to reinforce the community bond in Les Grottes. They will be showing 3 movies from the Soviet Union, from the 1920s. Films start under the stars at 8.30pm. I will be there early to grab a drink and to taste some pirojki (a Russian and Ukrainian specialty). The bar opens at 7.45pm on Rue de la Sibérie (Square Berger).

Armchair Sports Fans: Armchair sports fans have enjoyed a tremendous 3-week festival of the Olympics – from the acclaimed Opening Ceremony on July 27 by Danny Boyle,  to the Closing Ceremony on August 12. As anticipated, the Track and Field events have been absorbing with the triumphs of Usain Bolt, the despair of Chinese Hurdler, Liu Xiang, and the momentous victories of Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah – just to name a few highlights. Other disciplines also produced many moments of tension, excitement and phenomenal performances – the Rowing at Eton Dorney, the Cycling at the Velodrome and the Sailing events have all been the setting for some close-fought battles, as well as new world and Olympic records. The Gymnastics and Horse Jumping events have been tense and closely fought, as well, and the Triathlon and long-distance running have been spectacular. Was this the best Olympics ever? Email us at info@biskotti.ch with your thoughts, and let us know your favourite moments. The Olympics may have come to an end, but don’t despair! There are still plenty of sporting events to look forward to this week: August 18: Start of the English Football Premier League – August 19: Man City v Southampton […]
