Slice of Stockholm: Finding Pizza in Stockholm via The Local and Boston Blatte

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Ever hear the one about the Italian American who walks into a Stockholm pizzeria after reading a blog? Well, today, I just did. Hearing it reminds me of what a small world Stockholm really is.

Apparently if you google “stockholm” and “little italy” the first hit is one of my old blog entries, Pizza Feud: Stockholm’s Little Italy, is the first hit.

That’s what an Italian American did. He was in Stockholm for four days on business. According to Baristan of Dellos...cough…VIP at Hornstull an American walked in one evening. In flawless Italian, albeit smothered in thick Dixie drawl, he explained how he had found Very Italian Pizza. He had read about the feud, yep, right here on blatt radio, and decided to check it out.

This is one of the things I most love about life in Stockholm. So many unrelated things in my Stockholm existence eventually intertwines.

The copy cat pizza place seems to be still in business though barely. I hear it is for sale if anyone’s looking for a bad investment.

Grapefruit: Yoko Ono is in da ‘Holm

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

-Yoko Ono just walked by my office window.

That was a friend’s Facebook status update just a few minutes ago. She’s somewhere downtown Stockholm.

A quick googling shows that Yoko has an exhibit at the Modern Museum of Stockholm (Moderna Museet) running June 5-Sept 9 2012. The Grapefruit Exhibition has its starting point in her work by the same name published 1964.

Welcome Yoko Ono. Glad Stockholm is bathed in sunshine for your walk about today.
