FILM
STAR TREK: BEYOND | SF BIO
22/7

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and the gang are back for the latest mesmerising instalment in the Star Trek series in which their lives and the very existence of the Enterprise’s crew seem to be hanging by a thread. Based upon the creative genius of director Justin Lin and producer J.J Abrams, the movies embraces the darkness and treachery of new villain Kall and his attempt to eradicate the Universe of Kirk and his crew. Gun fights, high octane chases and the spellbinding CGI effects are all regularly on display in this movie and it is certainly a must see this weekend if you are a lover of the Sci-Fi genre.

ACTIVITY
COLOUR OBSTACLE RUSH | GÄRDET
23/7

Nothing, and I mean nothing, could get you more in the mood for the weekend than the opportunity to experience the Colour Obstacle Course in Stockholm this very weekend. Not only is it a chance to revisit that lost childhood with a series of bouncy castles, slip’n’slides, a barrage of flying sponge balls bouncy kangaroo balls, but it is all the sideshow to the explosion of coloured ink that will don your body after such an exciting event. Throughout the obstacles your body and clothes will become awash with vibrant inks and, to finish all proceedings you can join in with the water balloon war, seriously, what could be better than that in the summer sun!?

ACTIVITY
SUMMER STAND-UP IN SÖDRA | SÖDRA TEATERN
23/7

If the week has been tough and you are in need of a chuckle or two then the summer stand up show in Södra this Saturday evening is definitely the place to go. Hosted by none other that TV regular Janne Westerlund, the evening invites the the best comedians with the most devilish material from around the world to come up and get the audience doubled over in hysterics. Having already displayed a huge number of successful comedians, including Aziz Ansari and Shazia Mirza, the night is expected to be a huge success and a laugh-a-minute experience from beginning to end. To make the experience even better, have dinner in the restaurant before, just make sure you finish before it starts because none wants to see anyone choking on their food do they!?

ACTIVITY
STOCKHOLM SKATEATHON | RÅLAMBSHOVSPARKEN
23/7

We have heard of marathons, triathlons and even biathlons, but this Saturday it is the annual Stockholm Skateathon, right in the very heart of the city! If you are a skater and have an interest in joining other equally passionate and likeminded people there is an 8km competitive race to find the best skater in the city, with a little prize at the end for the best male and female skater. Whether you are an elite skater or just in it for a leisurely ride, bring your longboard or skateboard down and race against the people (or even yourselves) and see where you finish. Fun for everyone involved and free to all who take part, join the wave of excitement and promotion for the extreme sport and see if you can be crowned best in the business!

FOOD
URBAN DELI | SVEAVÄGEN
24/7

Now if you are wanting delicious food with a view then this restaurant that extends onto the rooftops is definitely worth a look on a fine summer afternoon and evening. The food, a selection of succulent dishes both downstairs in the main restaurant or upstairs, are complimented by a variety of Urban Deli’s very own cocktails and drinks. The créme de la créme though, is the sensational view across the city of Stockholm. Move from the inside the cool, retro atmosphere and move out into the fresh air, gawping at the sheer beauty of this historically gorgeous city as you go. The quite high rise gives you the time to embrace the beauty this city has to offer away from the hustle and bustle below. So grab a drink, get a delicious bit to eat and feast your eyes upon either the artistic sculptures inside, or the scenic uniqueness os Stockholm in all it’s glory.

EXTRA GEM OF THE WEEK
ACTIVITY
SWIMMING IN THE CITY | PICK A SPOT

We always like to think of something that is cheap and cheerful to do, and with the holidays coming to a close soon and the children making their way back to school in less than a month, we thought we would give you the best places to swim in this fine city with the family. In the sauna like temperatures we are experiencing and with waters warming up to a pleasant 22 degrees, take the opportunity to enjoy one of the selection of beaches or lakes around and maybe take a picnic to enjoy by the side of the glistening water. Inner-city beaches and parks such as Rålambshovsparken, Smedsuddsbadet, with its large lawn for sunbathing and a cafe close by, the swimming beach in Frescati Hage at Brunnsviken, the section of jetties, lawns and beaches at Stora Esslingen or even Lake Mälaren at Kristineberg are just a number of the best places to swim with the family we could find for you, so pick one and let us know what you think on a family day out by the water!
