Stockholm MeFite Dinner Wed. 21 Nov

Wed November 21 at 7:00 PM, Café Sten Sture
Trångsund 10, 111 29 Stockholm, Sweden (Map & Directions)
In 1792, the underground Caf Sten Sture in Gamla Stan was a prison. According to its website, "It’s an amazing experience to sit in our caves from 1400 century. We have many cozy and exciting Caves."
Hmm, cozy AND exciting? Who can resist the siren call of dining together in a former prison?

FYI: The place closes at 21:00. The menu leans heavily toward meat. There are some vegetarian options (including broccoli quiche, mushroom crepes, moussaka, vegetarian pizza, cheese sandwiches) but I don't think there are vegan options.

Please holler if you need vegan and we will find a different place. If you don't want to have dinner, feel free to come fika instead. This place is new to me so I can't vouch for it, just like the idea of dining in a prison.

Yes! I’d be up for dinner or fika - where did you see the opening hours, by the way?

On the contact page, bizarrely enough.

I have added a link to the menu in the post above. Couldn't not find a link to the menu on the Swedish website but on the ugly, English version it exists. So odd, and perhaps outdated as well.

Sounds fun.
Add me to list.
Not sure about the prison bit.
I have spent a night in, well not an actual prison, but a police cell in the Old Town.
Another story.
Prefer vegetarian but flexible.

I’m a maybe, still getting my butt kicked in the New Project and trying to max one thing a week, and might be doing a thing Tuesday.

To any newcomers: I have bright pink glasses frames and will be wearing a striped sweater under my blue dress.

jan murray, so glad you made it! Ditto for St. Oops!

If you like you can message me here with an email address and I will add you to the Stockholm MetaFilter email group, which gets a message whenever anyone in the group decides to call a meeting, basically.

That was fun.
Thank you for setting it up.
Lets do it again.
Updated my email too

Lovely to see you all.

Our favorite Swedish cultural critique show so far, Full Patte, was on but is unfortunately in the process of cycling off their catalog.

For carbon-negative biochar stoves (and how many are trying to 'build a better mousetrap') this UN-sponsored catalog is the best list I've found. They're not going to heat your 1960s rowhouse, though.

Until next time?
