Advent Opens Its Doors for Traditional Swedish Meatball Dinner (and college kids eat free!)

For the second year in a row, Advent’s Swedish Meatball Community Dinner on Saturday 26 January will feature Nanna Larson’s traditional recipe for mouthwatering meatballs and gravy — a recipe brought with her when she emigrated to the United States from Jonkoping, Sweden in the early 1900s and painstakingly prepared by Advent’s “meatball rolling team” headed by Nanna’s great-granddaughter.

Side dishes include traditional mashed potatoes, sauteed carrots, green beans with almonds and cranberries, homemade rolls, and a table buffet of homemade desserts. Bring your appetite: As regular diners know, portions are extremely generous and always delicious!

The dinner will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The first five college students with I.D. eat for free. Otherwise, prices are as follows: children, $4.00; students, $5.00; seniors, $8.00; and all other adults $9.00.

Prosit for Another Successful Oktoberfest at Advent!

Bratwurst! Sauerkraut! Pork roast! Tasty side dishes and homemade desserts! Advent’s always-popular Oktoberfest dinner on 22 October was enjoyed by all who attended, going by the countless compliments to the chefs.

A special thank-you to those attending our Community Dinner for the first time. We hope to see you again during the upcoming Christmas season. Our monthly Community Dinners return in late January with the equally mouth-watering Swedish meatball supper.
