We kick off the New Year thinking lean, mean and green: how is Sweden moving towards becoming a fossil fuel free society, and are the lessons Sweden has learned in its active pursuit of this goal relevant to the US?
We share excerpts from the film “Makes You Wonder” by James and Eva Wine, and follow up with a discussion moderated by environmental historian Eric Paglia.
On Sunday, February 5th (and into the morning of February 6th!), members of The American Club of Sweden, the American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden, Gridiron Club Sweden and guests will be watching the Super Bowl! We are happy to be at one of our sponsors, Hard Rock Stockholm, as we welcome you all to an evening of Super Bowl watching, food and camaraderie with other fans!
Our monthly mixing, mingling and networking event, Third Thursday (or "3T" as regulars call it) is open to anyone with an interest in The American Club of Sweden. It's even a great opportunity for those considering membership to get to know our members and learn more about our club.
The Third Thursday of each month we gather at Hilton Stockholm (Slussen) from 17:30-19:30.
This month's event is sponsored by MAJATTORNEY, a Gävle based attourney assisting individuals and corporations with long-term durable legal solutions at different stages of personal life and business development. Thank you!
The day before Third Thursday, Majattorney and partners are offering ACS members free participation in their February 15th seminar: “How to navigate as an American in a world of tax transparency.” Please register via MAJATTORNEY for the session on February 15th.
Join members and friends for the Stockholm film premiere of “Loving,” a celebration of the courage and determination of Richard and Mildred Loving, a mixed-race couple living in America during the 1960s, to live a dignified family life. Based on a true story, Loving against the State of Virginia, a case about the right of mixed race couples to marry, went to the Supreme Court in 1967.
Tickets to the premiere on February 17th will be released in early February, so register your interest with us now and we’ll get back to you with more specifics once we have had the chance to book the discounted group tickets.
California Wine Institute, Oregon Wine Board and Washington State Wine will organize a tasting in Stockholm on March 15th with wines from the West Coast!
Wines from the U.S. West Coast are more popular than ever in Sweden as well as the rest of Northern Europe. At this tasting, we will present several new wineries to Swedish markets, and novelties from the wineries that are already familiar to Swedish consumers.
During an exclusive two hour tasting for American Club, American Women's Club and AmCham members, you are invited to taste any of more than 250 wines from more than 70 wineries.
Join members and friends to see the play Fotografi 51 (in Swedish) at Playhouse Theatre in Stockholm. The play focuses on the story of Rosalind who puts her life at stake for the sake of science. What is most important: fame and honor, real love or the search for truth? Meet Rosalind Franklin who solved the DNA mystery, but did not get the Nobel Prize, in a drama based on a true story of ambition, betrayal, love and science. Fotografi 51 was a great success in London’s West End and play on Broadway this spring.
Join the American Club of Sweden on Friday May 19th for an exciting concert with Pat Metheny at Konserthuset in Stockholm as part of the Blue House Jazz program. He will play together with Antonio Sanchez (drums), Linda Oh (base) och Gwilym Simcock (piano).
If you ever wanted to find out what a sailing vacation could be like, we have a great opportunity for you. The American Club of Sweden is putting together an event this (late) summer you will not want to miss.
We are offering 3 days/2 nights “jaunts” out into the Stockholm Archipelago aboard very comfortable Bavaria 46/47 foot sailing yachts. The boats are extremely well maintained and come with a skipper. This would be an ideal trial if you have always wanted to go on a sailing vacation, but were unsure about being on a boat for a long time and concerned about the expenses.
