Sunday, Mar. 8. Kvinnor Kan.
Kvinnor kan means “women can,” and in Sweden it signifies equality between women and men. At the Swedish Club, an eclectic group of Nordic women will observe International Women’s Day (Mar. 8) with a dinner to honor a local leader for women's rights.

Alene Moris, an Icelandic American, has worked for more than 45 years on behalf of women and their career and leadership issues. She’ll give a talk on “Nordic Women Are on Top,” discussing how important women in Nordic history have helped their countries become the most women-friendly in the world. 6 p.m. $30.       Or RSVP by mail.

Culinary Kudos
It seems that every time the Swedish Club is mentioned in local media, it has something to do with food and drink. Not that we're complaining. Seattle Metropolitan lauded us for offering the city's best Swedish happy hour, and the the Ballard News-Tribune liked it too. Zagat placed our smörgås sandwiches among Seattle's top nine. The Seattle Weekly also found some nice things to say about our smörgås and gave a blow-by-blow account of our pea soup challenge, while the P-I reported on our Swedish meatball cook-off. And of course, our pancake breakfasts have gotten so much attention, they're practically a PR campaign unto themselves.
