House of Sweden opening

When my Scandinavian immigrant father yearns for the taste of home, the most convenient place for my mom to load up on lingonberry jam and black bread is usually Ikea. Luckily, Nordic transplants to DC will not be forced to trudge through a poorly lit jungle of particleboard bookshelves, unless of course their books are strewn all over their living room. House of Sweden, the Swedish embassy's cultural outpost, is opening a its "Cafe Bites and Sounds" series this weekend. Each Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 you can stop by for Swedish coffee and snacks and hear some Swedish tunes.
