Where to go? 18 Gastronaut A visit to Petri. 19 Bar Ubu Another addition at Ersta, Södermalm. 20 Bitesize Small nuggets from the Stockholm restaurant scene. Summer The most anticipated season of the year. And perhaps especially so this time around, as the easing of the covid protocols might begin to give us our old lives back. If so, a proper Stockholm summer is exactly what’s needed. As 2021 won’t exactly be bursting with festivals and large events it’s down to a slowly reopening restaurant and bar scene to fulfil all of our restrained dreams. And as far as we see it, it’s one of those match made in heaven-situations. We have a severely wounded restaurant trade that is in dire need of our support. At the same time, a lot of people are still carrying around that pent-up urge for social encounters. So it should fill you up with immense joy to read our little story about newly opened Stockholm restaurants, variously located on rooftops, in courtyards and - of course - down by the water. Let’s hope you head somewhere before you’ve even finished reading it. Another thing that fills us with joy this summer is that Veronica Maggio, all of Sweden’s own musical darling, is releasing new material that will probably soundtrack a lot of future summer memories. She’s also turning 40, while her blockbuster album Satan i gatan, believe it or not, is now ten years old. As most journalists do, we tried to get her to look back at her career, but she’s not much for it. She’d rather continue looking forward. So, we decided to ask her about her unfulfilled dreams, about how being one of Sweden’s biggest names affects her expectations of how her new music is received, and just why it might be tiring to be a pop star. Just don’t expect an answer to the ’horrifying’ question about any potential new Veronica Maggios. As we allude to on the cover, she’s the one, she’s the only, and if we ever come across a new one, we’ll keep it to ourselves. Because we, in contrast to Veronica herself, don’t really get tired of the party tricks she has to offer. Peter Steen-Christensen 4 26 Highlights Who, what, where, when?
