Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

SACC New York will be hosting Swedish Election Watch Party at Aquavit on Sunday from 1-5 p.m.

A few days later than I originally planned, I can now finally share some interesting news that some of you out there may want to take full advantage of this Sunday, even while I can't make the scene there myself.

Far from the sweltering heat and humidity all around me here in South Florida, the
Swedish American Chamber of Commerce (SACC) is organizing an election watch party at Aquavit on the day of the election to the Riksdag, September 19, from 1 to 5 pm.

The election coverage will be screened in Aquavit's private dining room.
Swedish Election Watch Party
includes smörgåsbord brunch with choice of one Danish Mary, Alliansen, Rödgrönt, Carlsberg beer or juice
SACC members: $45 plus tax and service
Members of Young professionals: $33 plus tax and service

Aquavit
65 East 55th Street, New York City
Sunday, September 19, 1 - 5 pm


Reservations are taken for seating from 12 noon to 2:30 pm.

The Swedish election coverage will be broadcast from 1 pm to 5 pm.
RSVP by September 18 to Aquavit at 212-307-7311.
And for you Giants and Colts fans in the Tri-State area, remember, kickoff for their game in Indy is Sunday night at 8:20 p.m., so you have plenty of time to be cool and sophisticated in Midtown in the afternoon, and then get home and throw on your respective Manning brothers jerseys afterwards, though I honestly don't know how your Doritos and homemade ranch dip will taste hours after your smörgåsbord adventure.
You are on your own there.

I like the Colts 31-19.

Given the renown of the restaurant, I shouldn't be surprised to see some TV video of this event via SVT and TV 4 next Sunday night or the usual post-election analysis the following day, and you can be sure that I will look for it via their website.

Or, maybe someone will channel Bergman and Hallström and film some of the scene and share it with the world via YouTube.
I certainly hope so!

As it happens, until this week, there was a very cute
TV4 promo animation of the candidates jousting in full knight regalia at http://www.tv4.se/ but because of the delay in my getting this post up, they seem to have pulled it already.


Special thanks to Filip Enocson of SACC New York and Peter Klein of Aquavit for their kind assistance and the Election Watch Party graphic at the top.

I'll have more to say about the election over the next two days, with some videos as well, but until then you may want to check out The Local's Guide to the 2010 Swedish Elections at:
