This month we are at the Clarion Sign Hotel, Östra Järnvägsgatan 35 (T-centralen, directions here).
As a rule, Third Thursdays are informal — in the tried-and-true American fashion — business cards, handshakes and a smile. American Club members and non-members are welcome and everyone is encouraged to bring guests.
Bring your Business Cards!
No reservation necessary, just drop in. Non-members welcome!
Would you like to showcase your company, product or services
at an upcoming Third Thursday?
Let us know! Sponsorship is affordable and reaches a broad audience in person and online.

Look for the ACS group just outside the Cavalry Barracks on Lidingövägen around 12:15pm.
The doors to the stables open at 12:30, at which point the ACS group will join others for the lecture.
After the tour of the stables concludes at 2:30, interested members can take the 15 minute walk over to Foam Cafe at Karlavägen 75 for a ‘fika’.
The event is free (except for your coffee!), but we ask that you RSVP by Wednesday, October 29th.
