Potluck at the organic co-op Time to get to know the locavores
Don't bother turning on the barbeque tonight - head down to the city's coziest potluck at Østre Plads instead: everyone is bringing some little dish or other, and suddenly there's a wonderful meal on the table. Odense Fødevarefællesskab, a local organic food co-op, is hosting, but everyone is welcome, also non-members and people who are curious about joining the locavores. This is a great chance to get to know more about the O-FF.
While not just a "club for food nerds", Odense Fødevarefælleskab does have a very impressive collection of recipes for delicious andseasonal green dishes - check it out (in Danish).
The communal meal starts at 5:30 pm in time for parents with young kids to make it home for bedtime afterward. But there is white wine and summer in the air, and everyone else is encouraged to stick around after dinner.

North Atlantic poetry slam North Atlantic summer is best enjoyed with Faroese poetry and plenty of Greenland shrimp
North Atlantic summers are cool - "very damp and rainy with frequent fog, especially during the months of June, July and August", according to the Danish Meteorological Institute. Luckily, the North Atlantic House sits in a cozy corner of Odense Harbour where the sun tends to peek through the clouds more frequently than it does over Tórshavn, where the average number of clear days a year is ... 2! It might explain a lot about Faroese literature, for example the title of poet Jóanes Nielsen's novel "Rubber boots are the only temple pillars on the Faroe Islands"...
Whether the poetry slam pop-up on Friday featuring Faroese Ása Brynjarsdóttir and Titken Toft from Greenland will be a foggy or sunny affair is impossible to predict. On sunny days, the outdoor terrace at the North Atlantic House is one of the sweetest spots in Odense.
And would you look at that: all-you-can-eat Greenland shrimp, bread, aioli and rosé or white wine at Restaurant Nordatlanten between 3-6 pm on Friday.
Poetry Slam/North Atlantic Summer: Free admission
Rosé-and-shrimp-extravaganza: 249 kr. every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday
