Nordic country tours Stockholm edition

Tue November 1 at 5:00 PM, Restaurant Carmen
Tjärhovsgatan 14, 116 21 Stockholm, Sweden (Map & Directions)
Stop 2 on my whirlwind tour.
**The preference seems to be for earlier so changing meet up start time to 5. But I'm guessing we'll be there for about an hour so if anyone still wants tobshow up at six we'll probably be there.**
Last minute call for meetup with Mefites. I'll be in Stockholm from Oct. 31-Nov.3 (not all evening on the 3rd though, since I then have to hop on a train to make it to my plane in Copenhagen the next day), and would like to meet folks since that's one of my favorite things to do when I travel. Grab a drink or coffee, let's talk. You can tell me tall tales that I'll believe since I've never been in Stockholm before, which I'll return home and repeat verbatim to acquaintances for your amusement.

And considering the sudden nature of this meetup request, I understand it might be tough to gather a quorum, so don't feel shy if you want to drop me a memail.

I'm up for something. Any evening of the dates would work.

Me too. Afternoons or evenings except Nov 2 when I'll be watching a bandy match, which is a ice-hockey like game played on a soccer sized rink. My son has the restaurant Babajan on Söder - the best part of town.

Evenings work for me! I have no idea of the lay of the land, so unfortunately I will be of no help in determining a good meet up location, but any place easy to get to by public transportation is good enough for me. (jan murray, your son's restaurant looks pretty interesting~)

Let me narrow down the dates to Oct. 31 or Nov. 1st.

Babajan is closed monday evenings I'm afraid, otherwise its a 8 minute ride on bus 76 from Slussen, where I live. We has a wee meetup there a while back - so rpn knows it too. But I'm happy to go anywhere. I like söder best though. A pub crawl, music whatever.
Whats your fancy?

Pub sounds good to me! I'm a simple person with simple needs. Alcohol and a place to sit is good enough for me.

Hows this for a plan?

First of november.
Simple pub with cheap beer, no music and an unpretentious crowd on Söder, I propose Carmen. Corner of Tjärhovsgatan and Östgötagatan. Close to tube/metro/subway station Medborgarplatsen or Medis as we say here. We can always go on somewhere with better beer later or even to Babajan. Does that suit you, rpn? And time? Perhaps six.

Does that fit your plans, kkokkodalk?

I'll see if anybody else from our previous meetup is interested as well-

Yes, that sounds like a good plan. Six would work fine.

Yes this sounds like a plan!

Spitting distance from my work so totally count me in.
Can do earlier also.

I can do earlier too.
Avoid the crowds - or even better - be the crowd.

Should I amend the time? To 5pm?

Suits me perfectly. I get off work (at Babajan) after lunch already.
posted by jan murray at 5:20 AM on October 30, 2011

I am kinda unwell. If I amnt better tomorrow I may have to skip :( wouldn't like to spread the blergh. Will spend the day in bed and see if I am less lurgy.

Oh man I'm excited. Someone just told me about Nystekt Strömming so I might make that a lunch or early dinner in Södermalm.
posted by kkokkodalk at 11:08 AM on October 31, 2011

Oh, noooo. Feel better, Iteki (then hang out with me ah hahaha).
posted by kkokkodalk at 11:26 AM on October 31, 2011

Thanks so much for coming out! It was so awesome to meet you guys. Sorry I couldn't stay out too long. Too few days and too many things to see. I have decided that I will have to return very soon.
posted by kkokkodalk at 1:37 PM on November 1, 2011

Nice meeting you too - and if you have time to drop by Babajan tomorrow between 11:30 and 14:00 you can get a free lunch before you go to Reykjavik. Meatballs with lovage and cumin for the carnivores.
Welcome back soon.

Oh wow thanks so much for the offer! I'll have to see how long my Djurgården walking tour take.
