Beyond Retro’s big garage sales have been a recurring event over the last few months, but this time they’re going bigger than ever.

Eataly (cos it sounds like Italy, get it?) is an Italian food hall franchise that’s found itself popular enough to have branches everywhere from Dubai to South Korea to Turkey to the US. Basically, the concept is this: Italian restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques and food halls all gathered into one spot. And after a brief taster in 2017, Stockholm is about to get its first one. We mentioned last year that it was on its way to Stockholm, and now the time has come. Their outlet on Biblioteksgatan will have its premiere this weekend. Doors open at 13:00, and they’re be free tote bags to the first 100 guests.
Feb 17 @ 1300, Biblioteksgatan 5
MUSEUM: THE DIGITAL RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
Technology and the Russian Revolution were tightly linked. The Bolsheviks were passionate supporters of technological innovation and new forms for art, science and thought, seeing it as the mirror image of their own goal: as they changed the world on a political level with their scientific Marxism, they would go hand in hand with new science and new art to create the new society. After the revolution in 1917, there was a flood of new technology and art, but as the political climate turned sour and the slide into authoritarianism began, the brave new world and the technology and innovations it produced started to become tightly controlled and dominated by those at the top, locked away from the radical spirits that birthed them. This guided tour at Moderna Museet sees a mirroring of their practise in our modern digital age, where new technologies are quickly wrapped up and locked away for private gain by a powerful few. Anders Karnell, Art Lecturer at Moderna Museet and Arts Editor at Nöjesguiden leads this tour and talk.

Festival season never ends. And it’s about time cheese got in on the act, according to the people behind Ostfestivalen. It’s basically exactly what you imagine: a world dedicated to their celebration and exploration of everything cheese-related, with cheese-makers displaying their products, tasting sessions, a little wine tasting to go with it, and much more.
Feb 16 @ 1400, Münchenbryggeriet
