"Heya Girls!"
When the CitySpotterGirl invented your favourite newsletter a few years ago, many people thought: “Presenting a new shop and restaurant every week? This won’t work! So many new ones are not even around.” What can we learn from it? The Viennese are constantly underrating their own city! Since the very first edition you find the latest openings in “Talk of the town” week for week. The problem is rather: How should we bring in all the openings? In order not to lose track of the bustle, I founded the book series “Wiener Entdeckungen” (Viennese Discoveries). Once a year all the newly opened shops and restaurants mentioned in the newsletter are collected in a pretty book. And why do I tell you this? Because “Wiener Entdeckungen 5” is coming out this week! With 100 chic, cool or insiders’ favourite shops and restaurants. It’s simply unbelievable what’s going on in Vienna! You can take a first look at it on our web portal!
Wishing You a Lovely Week
Your CitySpotterGirl
Wiener Entdeckungen5, available in stores and in our web shop from December 1. Web

Electric Church Karlskirche
What the hell have groovy music acts and visual art to do with a church? A lot! The Star DJ and musician Sergio Flores and his Electric Church are stopping in Vienna for one night. He totally restages the Old Testament – and lets the Karlskirche, one of the most remarkable baroque sacred buildings north of the Alps, shine in splendour and glory. Everything is mixed together: traditional church painting and hypermodern projection, experimental synthesizer sound and classical choral singing. The atmosphere is unique and impressing. Even for unbelievers ;-)

Film & Discussion: On the Barroquades
The best alternative to the collective punch madness: author Robert Menasse is dropping in at Admiralkino for a chat. Together with the filmmaker Doris Kittler he will discuss to whom town and public space actually belong – and what creative civil disobedience can look like. Beforehand, the audience naturally watches the highly praised long-time documentary about the years-long citizens’ protests in Augarten: On the barroquades. Residents with heart, brains and baroque costumes were fighting against the disfigurement of the green jewel due to construction works.

Today, he is back in Vienna and opens – very officially – his Moroccan- Chilean interior showroom. We are talking about Rodrigo Cares – passionate furniture designer. After his impressing presentation at the Vienna Design Week he is now delighting city nomads with oriental lamps, leather sofas & Co in great desert-colours and materials.

Artflakes Christmas Market
Yes, sure, there are literally a thousand Christmas markets in Vienna at the moment. But no, this one is not a run-of-the-mill one! When all the creative heads of the hip Project Space are tapping their networks and invite to an X-mas shopping event, it is snowing real specials: elaborate, casual and sexy chic of the fashion label Amateur. Love and happiness to put on from the jewellery designers of Heartwear. Trendy glowing stickers of Tabtag for night owls and their MacBooks. Besides art and design mainstream-avoider will also enjoy the drinks, snacks and vegan desserts from Greensmooch & Lisa Müller.

Junge Wilde and Soup for a Good Cause
The dedicated winter aid project of the “Wiener Tafel” is already being run for the 7th time. Once again, it will fight against social coldness – with hot soups and the support of 100 gastronomy partners. 1 € of each sold soup is donated to Austrians in poverty. Funny: Today, 7 young award-winning chefs (“Junge Wilde”) will take part in a live soup cooking session at the Tourism College Modul. So, young top chefs, like Stefan Grassl from „The Guesthouse“, Martin Zeissl from „Motto am Fluss“ and their colleagues will rattle those pots and pans for one day. For gourmets. And for a good cause.

Christmas Baubles made of Beverage Cans
A smart recycling tip to prevent pre-Christmas gift-wrapping-madness: Collect empty beverage cans and Tetrapaks, take your scissors and puncher and spend an afternoon hand-crafting original Christmas tree decorations with Andrea Steinhauser, the designer of  “Kaffeehaus am Ring“. Your decorations will glitter and gleam and brighten up your Christmas tree and the donation box of Doctors without Borders. In the evening, continue with shopping, biscuits & punch. Sounds like a perfect pre-Christmas day!

Yes, Vienna is still celebrating the „month of photography“. Shortly before the end, the Museum of Applied Arts once again releases the shutter and favours those interested in photography with a truly cool retrospective of contemporary photographic art.

Closing of Gemini Universe
Ladies, get out a handkerchief! The CitySpotterGirl is heartbroken. One of her absolute favourite stores will shut up shop before long: the truly enchanting, original and embosomed boutique of designer Sibylle Bauer-Schmidt. Her cheery-colourful, but still elegant creations enlivened the townscape for years. Before she finally closes her shop’s doors down due to personal reasons, fashion junkies have one last chance: Sale starts now! And you cannot only bargain-hunt pretty knitwear and skirts, but also fabrics and furniture inventory!

“Filth and Trash”
No, we are not talking about porn websites. But about moral-endangering aspects of the 50s and 60s that presented a moral challenge for youths, and especially for youth protection officers: oompah films, comics & Co. Unbelievable: 1 million (!) Austrians signed the petition against “filth and trash” back then – to protect their kids (like the little CitySpotterGirl) from pedagogically incorrect influences. Today, this sounds almost amusing. Media researcher Edith Blaschitz, author Christine Nöstlinger and colleagues will discuss the issue as part of the exhibition “I am me”.

Moop Mama
No samples, no electronic instruments: 10 people, 7 wind players, 2 drummers and one singer are on their way to mess up everything with their mixture of brass, hip hop and rap. “Moop Mama – for everyone who doesn’t know the name, we are a marching band”, is a line of the lyrics of one of their songs of their debut album “Deine Mutter”. The music blows away the listener’s ears, the lyrics successfully walk the tightrope between political texts and complicated interhuman relations. Sometimes brutally loud, sometimes secretly quiet. Give it a quick listen!

„Steirisch sterben“
In his debut novel, the landscape architect and neo-author Hartmut Schnedl draws a bloody narrative line in the snow: The handsome male models of a farmers’ calendar are topped. And the temporary journalist Dim Damianovic is unintentionally becoming an investigator. Of course, we won’t give away whether there will be a happy ending or not. And what about all those cats and Andreas Gabalier as a desired corpse? Well, we suggest you to ask directly: The author reads live in Vienna tonight. And he recommends a beer with his reading.

Analogue can also be chic! This was the idea of the usually totally digital Viennese group Etsy. Early birds may remember: Etsy is the world’s largest and coolest Internet shopping portal for homemade products, vintage and artists’ materials. Now the Vienna group cooperates with Wohngestalterei and for the first time invites customers to shop haptically in their pop-up Christmas store. What you will find here in the upcoming 4 weeks is extraordinary art, fashion and accessories, made with much love. For example, Tine Hessler’s lovely étagères made of old china.

Jonas Reindl
Genuine Viennese know it: In the vernacular, the tram junction at Schottentor is called Jonas-Reindl. Since lately, you come across a second „Jonas Reindl“ just above it. Urban style is pulsating in Philip Feyer’s new café-deli: The atmosphere is chic and charming – and the coffee is grandiose. The strong espresso of the brand Süssmund #270 finally woke up the CitySpotterGirl. Incredibly tasty: brown bread with pomegranate couscous. And the fluffy lemon cake. Even better: the friendly crew!
