Last ditch effort for ScandiMeet July 11, 2009 4:18 PM   Subscribe

Last minute call for a Nordic birthday meetup? Stockholm in that case.

We batted it back and forth in this thread a while back, but came to no conclusions. So I am now taking matters into my own hands.

Friday 17th 18.30 in Himmeln (the sky bar in the old tax offices on Södermalm). Map.

It's right between Medborgarplatsen and Skanstull subway stations on the green line, but it's also an easy enough walk down Götgatan from Slussen where red and green lines meet, as well as the busses from the Finland boats.

Anyone in? I think I we need to be three minimum, so shout out here in the thread.

May I hijack and announce that at least I will be at Carib Kreol in Malmö this Friday at 8:30 - just waiting to hear back from someone that I mefimailed. Join if you're in the hood.

No worries dabitch, feel free. Btw, if anyone reading this is coming, but doesn't want to post it, memail me cheers.

Oh man. An excellent initiative, and I wish I could join you. But somewhat unfortunate for me, I'll be cruising the archipelago that Friday.

I would have loved to be there, especially as its only 5 minutes walk from home. Unfortunately,having gone native, I do what most Swedes do in the summer. That is push off into the country or archaepelago for the duration. I'm on Öland now until september.
Great initiative though Iteki.
Autumn (fall) for another try?
Then I'm in - all the way.

Bah, Swedes. All vacation and boating in the summer. Viking ways never die huh? ;) I'll be at Carib Kreol anyway.

Sorry, would love to come but will be busy doing nothing at a friends summerhouse. Good idea though

What is it with these Americans and having birthdays in the middle of July?

To be honest, I will be in Åland myself, even though I am only a fake-swede, but will be back by the evening. Guess we will look toward doing something in the autumn?

Can we schedule one when I come to pick up my Prize?

Rackarns! Didn't see this until now, the morning after. Did enough people turn up? Otherwise we should celebrate in Stockholm when people get back in town. "In aftershot" or how to put it. August? September?
