Svenska Dagarna! I'm out and around at Swedish Days today, so keep tuning into this blog for tips, photos and highlights!
The ABBA Tribute was awesome. Perfect for Swedish Days. Photos, and possibly video, coming.
OK, a lot to catch up.
Photos here of Rosemaling and the library tent. (Library Swedish Days book sale is 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow, June 21.)
Food Review: Had the pulled pork sandwich from the Rotary food tent. It was served by Loy Willliams, which made it that much better! I'm giving it 4.0 stars on the Swedish Days food scale—which is groaning after all the stuff I've eaten in the past two days. Välkommen - Svenska Gastrodagarna 2012
Tip #4: There are plenty of places to sit in the shade, or go inside for a cool treat. Can't tell you how pleasant it is in the Geneva Library, All-Chocolate Kitchen and 318 Coffeehouse—my work places today.
NEXT: (But only if I have enough room in my burgeoning belly.) Either the Lingonberry Sundae at Graham's or the Swedish Cardamon Rolls at 318.
- 5:30 p.m. Swedish American Choir
- 6:30 p.m. Geneva's Got Talent Semi-Finals
- 8 p.m. ABBA Salute
I'm at 318 Coffeehouse now. Stop by and say "hi" if you get a chance.
NEXT: Angela N. sugggested the pulled pork sandwich by behind the Shoppes At 127 (127 S. Third St), so I'm heading that way. :)
11:30 a.m.—Filed from the All-Chocolate Kitchen!
Had a nice conversation with Terry Emma at the Geneva History Center.
Tip #1: They've got some really cool, framed "Geneva" posters. Do a drive-by, pick up a poster and put it in your trunk so that you don't have to carry it around.
Tip #2: Go to the carnival in the late morning. No lines at all right now.
Tip #3: Great place to plan your strategy for the day: the Swedish Days information booth at the courthouse, Third and James.
Food: What would you like me to sample today? Pick something interesting, and I'll get there!
NEXT: Visit to the library, then lunch.
10 a.m. POST
Swedish Stuff: You can also go watch—and maybe sing along with Meryl and the gang—at the Swedish cinema. And the Swedish American Children's Choir is at 5:30 p.m. on Central Stage.
Weather: Sunny and breezy, high of 93 degrees, according to the National Weather Service forecast for Geneva, IL. 41.88°N
