Summer Fika Print

Fika is the social institution of a coffee break. Fika can be just a cup of coffee, but most often includes a coffee cake or an assortment of cookies.

Join us on Saturday, August 17, 2019 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM for a Summer Fika at Saengerbund Haus, 3410 Austin St (adjacent to First Evangelical Lutheran Church — where we held our Lucia celebration the last four years).  We will be having strawberry cake and rhubarb crisps (depending on the availability of rhubarb).  The cost is $10 for members, $15 for guests and $5 for youth 12 and under.

Click here by Thursday August 15 to let us know you will be coming!

 
Movie Night Print

The Swedish Club of Houston's first Movie Night of 2019 will be on Friday, September 20th at Penny Whistle Pub, 1625 Richmond Avenue, Houston TX 77006 (in the TV room), beginning at 7:00 PM.

We will be showing Becoming Astrid, a 2018 biopic of Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren (the author of numerous children's books and creator of Pippi Longstocking), in Swedish with English subtitles.

Penny Whistle does not serve food; because of this, they always allow guests to bring in outside food (snacks or meals); Revelry on Richmond and Oui Banh Mi are conveniently located right next door, or you can bring your own food! Come early for socializing and order a beer/wine/cocktail to enjoy during the movie. A discussion of the film will follow.  Click here to let us know you're coming (there's no charge for this event; this is just for planning purposes)! See you there!

Crawfish Party POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Print

The Monument Inn is closed due to road closure, and will re-open as soon as possible.  Authorities will not reopen the road until it’s safe for everybody to pass, and right now it’s still somewhat of a construction zone as a result of the nearby ITC fire. 

As soon as an alternate date can be set, we will let everyone know (and refund the payments of anyone who will not be able to attend on the eventual rescheduled date).
