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.
