In light of recent post on icemen, I'd like to invite folks to Skansen this weekend, where I will be delivering ice on both Saturday and Sunday, 10-16. Sunday is COOP day, so if you have one of those green cards in your wallet you get in for free. This day is notorious for high visitor numbers, so consider yourself warned. I hang out mainly in the environments representing the 1920s and 30s, so Skånegården (previously) and the hardware store quarter.
MUST POSTPONE due to illness/conflicts. New venue! This month we are meeting at Babajan, the restaurant formerly owned by MetaFilter's own jan murray, who still works there most Fridays. The menu includes vegan, vegetarian, and meat options, and the bar serves a rotating list of delightful stuff for beer drinkers. [more inside]
Come watch (or rewatch!) this 2-hour classic from 1981. Possibly without any MeFite company. The movie starts at 18:00. Tickets are 80 SEK and the seats are unnumbered, hooray! [more inside]
In 1792, the underground Café 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." It was fun in November, when two additional MeFites made an appearance. It will also be fun in January! [more inside]

Bring your hammock, if you have one, and join us for a celebration of MetaFilter's 20th anniversary at Lngholmen in Stockholm. Exact meeting place there to be announced. I will bring a cake. Feel free to bring your own lunch, or not. [more inside]
Kairab and I are unexpectedly going to be in Stockholm this weekend...any Mefites up for a meet-up? our only (shameful, I know) commitment so far is the Millenium tour 11 am to 13.30 on Saturday let us know if there's other things we might explore!
An amble around Stockholm. [more inside]
Nystekt Strömming, which is the number 1 item on Time's list of things to do in Stockholm, used to be at Slussen but no longer. The herring wagon has relocated to Kornhamnstorg, in Gamla Stan, and is open until 9 pm. So let us meet there to enjoy a Swedish landmark serving working class food. If herring isn't your bag, feel free to show up with take out and/or friends or family. [more inside]
Linda and I have spoken about doing something on a weekend, like getting together some MeFites to see the film Lady Bird. Problem is, I can't get film programs for more than a week ahead except for art film houses, which aren't showing that at the moment. So, any suggestions for a weekend, earlier in the day outing, movie or otherwise this month? Ideas welcomed! (Consider checking out Biocafé Tellus for Sunday at 17:00 films to see if any of those are appealing.)
Dinner in February was so fun that we are meeting up again. In March we will gather at Teatern in Ringen centrum near Skanstull subway station. Look for people wearing glasses, not wearing glasses, and a MetaFilter sign. If you get there early, feel free to grab a table for 6 or 8. If you can't be there exactly at 7 pm, no worries; drop by when you can. [more inside]
Hej! First Stockholm IRL meetup since functionequalsform visited many years ago, again thanks to some new arrivals in the Stockholm area getting the locals together. Bella Donna proposed a meetup, some people responded, and now it's happening. [more inside]
Känna känna! I'm moving to Stockholm on January 20th. How about we put together a fika or something the last week of January? I'll be a bit south of the city but happy to travel for a meet up. Any interest?
Hello Stockholm Mefites! (And surrounding area) I'll be in your lovely country for two weeks in late August/early September for my honeymoon, and I would love to meet up with people, buy a round, etc. [more inside]
Hejsan! Here's the scoop: I am going to the premier of Cyrano tomorrow night, on June 4th, as described in this link: http://kulturhusetstadsteatern.se/parkteatern/Evenemang/2014/Cyrano. Since Meijusa has a baby, I will be there at 5 pm. I will be in the first row of seats at the bottom, closest to the stage, and then we can find a place nearby that's better for the baby. The show starts later, so no one needs to stay unless they want to. I don't have a local number but perhaps you can text at +1 510 6120 if you can't find me. If the weather is bad, I don't expect anyone but me to show. :-) I will bring food for myself and I hope y'all do too. Thanks for your patience. If you can make it, great. If not, I understand.
User wooh is moving to Stockholm, and that's an excellent reason for a meetup. Mid feb, suggestions for where to be finalised. [more inside]
Stop 2 on my whirlwind tour. [more inside]
A few of us are meeting up in STHLM. Yep! [more inside]
