Sweden Withdrawal Syndrome HH

After spending several weeks strolling through the hills in lovely Lapland, it's been a little hard to come back to the realities of the bustling pace of life and the hot humid summer climes of DC. So for a little escapism, I figure a gathering at about the only Scandinavian themed place I could really find in DC is in order. So what if it's also got a bit of Polish influence - whatever, they still have aquavit, pickled herring, and Swedish meatballs. It will have to suffice.

A few of us from the Kungsleden trip will be there, so if you want to start getting the lead on a few of the stories and how the trip went before the bigger potluck gets organized, feel free to come on by. Just make sure to ask Mark and Andrew their opinion about the St. John's Wort flavored aquavit before ordering up a shot for yourself.

    Drama at the house so can't. Need to have roommate meeting tonight. I should just have slept through the whole week....

    Sorry for the about face, but summer school threw a few curve balls today, and I won't be able to make it down to DC tonight. Have one for me!

    Need to leave on the earlier side, but I'm going to make this!

    I'm going to see if I can make it, but do you think they'll have Norrlands Guld on tap? I've been missing all the wonders of that 3% drink.

      A couple Swedish friends, upon hearing of the Norrlands Guild beer we consumed at the huts, exclaimed, "oh god, that's the worst beer in Sweden!"

    I have to come hear stories from you lot and see what you think of the less-beautiful side of the border. :)

      Dang - you're right with your food answer. I really need to add potatoes. Those Swedish new potatoes were awesome!!!

      July 15, 2013

    • Joffrey P.

      Haha, being vegetarian didn't help me out a whole lot living in a fishing town north of the Arctic circle... I ate a lot of potatoes.

    Will see if I can make it there with the bike from work. Will be a bit later.

    For me, it would be a Sweden Jealousy Syndrome HH. If I can get off work on time, I'll join you.

    • Brian

      Knowing this crew, I think we'll be there for a while, so even if work runs late feel free to stop on by.

  • Jen

    I may be there closer to 6:30. Forgot that I have a flex schedule next week.

    July 11, 2013

  • Michael M.

    Perhaps this should be the "Stockholm Syndrome" HH?

    July 10, 2013

  • Denise

    Hey, unfortunately I probably won't be able to make it. Enjoy!!!
