Best Reason for Ballardites to Reconsider Their Scandinavian Allegiances

Swedish Cultural Center

Sometimes it seems Norwegians get all the love in our fair city. Ballard is hot, hot, hot, getting trendy new bars and writeups in airline magazines, always with references to the neighborhood's Scandinavian roots. But don't overlook those Swedes. The Swedish Cultural Center has you covered for sauce-drenched meatballs, pancakes, and a twice-monthly happy hour—all with a Lake Union view that rivals the one at Canlis. Even if you never had an ancestor named Lutefisk Gustavsson, you're welcome to join up for the low, low membership requirements: an annual fee of $45 and a pledged interest in Scandinavian culture.—Laura Onstot
