Would love to. However, I'm "home alone" most of next week...but not alone enough. Depends on when. Wednesday I could do it before another engagement...a pre-drink for the Xmas celebration.

Stockholm rules

Start drinking before you leave your home, preferably you have got to the drinking whisky stage.
Then travel upon the communist transport system to a friends abode preferably whilst drinking, preferably from a can. If you can be sick before you get to your friends place you score extra points.
Drink heavily at said friends place to avoid hefty bar bills whilst trying not to be sick in their apartment, a digression ensures penalty points.
Stagger back to bus stop/rail station either under the weight of your inebriation or the weight of a semi conscious colleague or both. Try to convince the bus driver that said colleague will not be sick on bus/passengers extra points awarded for skilful negotiations bonus points awarded for originality. If you fail in this task you have to take the physical challenge of walking several KM or the double dare of convincing a taxi to take you.

100 points awarded for getting off the Drunken perambulation service at the correct location. minus points for starting a fight, bonus points for urinating on or stealing something, or urinating on something thats stolen.

Finally convince the door staff after a lengthy wait that your are fit for bar service, than buy only your own drinks etc I got bored... somebody else can finish it if they want.

Stockholm rules for (UK) tourists who have no friends in Stockholm yet:

Get on the Tube system (Tunnelbana) somewhere about 8pm. (Hint: Whilst we have just got 24hr drinking in the UK, stick to traditonal UK pub times for your nights out as it's pretty much happy hour until midnight in Sweden 'cos all the Swedes are in their friends' flats getting hammered until then)

Nab a copy of the Metro "newspaper" (available on pavements all over Stockholm just as in England).

Ask the blonde Swedish boy / girl you sat next to (accidently) to help translate the "Beerometer" on the back page, specifically ask him / her which bar has the cheapest "BigStrong".

Get to said bar.

Ignore queue (bouncers in Sweden assume that if you act important you must be).

Enjoy a great night out with Iraqi refugees, Swedish Neo-Nazis, Homosexuals, Students, Winos and impoverished tourists as well as middle aged alcoholic gamblers all happily swapping spit and getting beer at 19Kr a pint (about GBP1.50ish) in the same pub and *nobody* fighting despite the fact that everyone is vocally airing their own views.

I did this last year (Gro:na Jageren in So:dermalm).
