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:

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
