    With the holidays (and spring break) fast approaching, it's time to celebrate Swedish- style.

    IKEA locations all over the U.S. will celebrate with their annual Swedish Easter Smorgasbord dinner called Paskbord.

    Paskbord is a "mouthwatering" all you can eat smorgasbord. If you're a fan of Ikea's fine dining, then this is the event for you!
    According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary smorgasbord is
    a luncheon or supper buffet offering a variety of foods and dishes (as hors d'oeuvres, hot and cold meats, smoked and pickled fish, cheeses, salads and relishes)​
    Paskbord 2013 takes place on Friday- March 22, 2013 from 6:00- 8:30 pm

    Kim, Lucas and I leave the day after Paskbord for Russia so it would be hard for us to attend the event. We'll probably be staying home and packing that night. If you decide to attend Paskbord, we'd love to hear about how the celebration went!

    The Cost:
    • IKEA Family price- $9.99 per person, Children 12 & under $2.49
    • Non-member price- $12.99 per person, Children $4.99
    Seating is limited so if you are interested, head over to your local IKEAto purchase tickets to celebrate with a Swedish- Easter dinner.
    Sign up for IKEA Family HERE to save on Paskbord and to get other member discounts.

    I still cannot get over the idea of food and furniture in the same store.

    My wife and I will be at the Ikea College Park (DC) event. We did one of their events before and it’s an ok smorgasbord- especially for the price - it’s even better if you are seriously interested in pickled herring and the like. We are bringing a friend from the upper Midwest who is...

    I recall my swedish easter involving drinking bottles of far to expensive Vino Tinto and then being thrown out of a punk bar run by Turks because of a fight with my armenian Friend.

    This sound much calmer. If Ikea had actually built in Somerville I might go, but I can't figure this is worth the drive otherwise.

    Can you take some photos and post them here after the event? We almost went a couple of years back and if we weren't going away the following day would've went this year. Can't say that I like pickled herring but the food in general is decent for the price.
    Tough call! lol

    Thanks for the info about the meal. Sounds like quite a lot of options! I probably would not eat most of it but I'd definitely like to check it out in the future.
