- February 4th – EVERY SWEATER TELLS A STORY, Everyone is invited to wear your favourite Nordic sweater at the Norwegian Club-hosted brunch on Sunday, Feb. 4. But wait! There’s more: You’re encouraged to not only wear your own sweater, but also to bring along any other such Scandinavian-styled sweaters that may be a spare, a family keepsake, a childhood artifact, or a long-outgrown souvenir. We’ll provide small blank cards on which you can write your name and a bit of the sweater’s history, and we’ll display these sweaters while you eat!
Even if you do not have a Scandinavian sweater to wear or display, you are still cordially invited to attend brunch and enjoy the pop-up Sweater Museum, along with the delicious brunch provided by Bonne Cuisine, of course. We are confident every sweater has its own story to tell!
