4 October: ‘Smoker’s Banko’

Posted 1 October 2012 by Lene

Rust, Guldbergsgade 8, 2200 KBH N (In the cozy bar and smoker’s lounge on 1st floor)

21:00 – 23:00 // no entrance fee, but you pay to play

Craving for a night of practicing numbers in danish? Properly not, but this game is a lot of fun and I’m sure host Miss Foster is willing to repeat in english.

For newbies I will quickly mention the rules of Banko:

Buy a ‘Banko board’ (1 piece is 25 kr, 3 pieces 50 kr) and find a comfortable seat before the game starts at 22:00.

Listen to the numbers being drawn. If you have got the number on your board, put a piece to cover it.

If you are the first to have all your numbers drawn you in this case WIN A BICYCLE! (Memo: Yell “Banko”!!)

See facebook for more info (in danish though)

Have you met Mor Jane?

She is the owner of Café Viking, a small, cosy pub on the corner where Ægirsgade meets Mimersgade, Nørrebro.

She has had enough of the vandalism and violent behavior lately, so she came up with ‘NEJ TIL VOLD- JA TIL SAMMENHOLD’. It is an initiative for people to get together and have fun no matter nationality, age, religion etc.

So, if you are in the neighborhood, make sure to swing by and take a stand for social cohesion.

Obviously there is no better excuse for enjoying a beer and good music.

9 april: Easter sale in Gemmeren

Posted 5 April 2012 by Lene

Fælledvej 9, 2200 KBH N

12:00-18:00

Once in a while I find a really good 2nd hand store and this is no exception. Gemmeren is probably the most ‘hyggelig’ and cheap store I have ever found in Copenhagen. And that’s why I simply had to start contributing there a few weeks back.

Our neighbors bring us piles of pretty dresses, pumps and t-shirts. We have got clothes for both sexes and items like LP’s, CD’s, paintings and accessories.

This Easter an army of chicks and yellow stuff has invaded Gemmeren and we want to invite you inside. Have a look around and relax with a cup of coffee on the couch.

It is going to be really cheap and the money you spend goes to Folkekirkens Nødhjælp and their work in the world’s poorest countries as usual.

Check out Gemmeren at Facebook and go “get your chick on” with me.

The Venus labyrinth

Posted 20 March 2012 by Leh

Guest writer and passionate Copenhagen lover Nikolaj, who is also the man behind the blog Stauning eller Kaos recommends you to pay a visit to The Venus Labyrinth.

 

“No excuse! Do not miss out on this thrilling experience.

The Venus Labyrinth is an individual and interactive journey that contains 28 installation rooms, corresponding to the 28 known areas of the human brain, each room inhabited by a woman/performer. Each spectator enters the labyrinth alone, with a few minutes interval, and joins these women in a unique, sensorial and emotional experience. No spectator is presented with the entire labyrinth; no two spectators will view or share the same experience.

First you enter a large room. Lying among others you have to choose three objects, that’ll determine which rooms you’ll visit during your stay in the labyrinth.
The first room I visited was called ‘emotional centers’. Before I entered the room I was told to put on a blindfold. I did and a woman led me inside the room. Soft classical music was playing and we started to dance. First a bit awkward, but I got into it and began to feel comfortable. She was humming along to the tune. Our bodies were close. But suddenly she started to cry – at first silently then louder and more hysterically. A bit later her mood suddenly changed, and she started laughing. We were still dancing. Then the music grew more intense, and then she started screaming and went banging on the walls! After the outburst she came back to me, calmed down and we danced again. She started to hum like in the beginning. Relaxed. After a while the music stopped. She told me to take of the blindfold. She looked me straight in the eyes, while I left the room.

I visited two more rooms – each very different. One of them was named ‘sexuality’ and that room were even more intense than the first room I visited. But I won’t tell you what happened in there. You have to go see for yourself. An exhilarating experience awaits.
