    For a good meal, I can also recommend Ali Baba Brasserie on Griffenfeldsgade in Nørrebro.
    (Oh, and for cocktails, the Oak Room at the end of Egegade, also Nørrebro)

  2. Also don’t forget to visit the LEGO mines! And be sure to donate to the LEGO Miner’s Widow’s and Orphans fund. Every year, dozens of LEGO Miners succumb to the deadly Brick Lung…..

  3. “Apparently during dinner the elk had drunk a lot of beer, fallen down the stairs, and died.”

    That has to be one of the more interesting Wikipedia pages I have read in a while. Mercury-ridden mustache? Psychic dwarves? Castles? Was Tycho Brahe a real person, or a character from an Edgar Allen Poe story?

    I STILL say that a secret smile graced the lips of Kirsten Jørgensdatter whenever she heard the name of Benjamin Franklin … :P

  5. Hi Skepchick

    I’m a newbie on this website, so it’s my first time commenting. As a Danish citizen I can only laugh at this. It’s been a long time since I’ve come to the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, and I only remember the place as being cool and one nature film which was great. Never knew about the Venus Bar though. If Tycho Brahe was alive he would probably go to Venus Bar before his own planetarium… Hehehe…
