Globen is outside the city, but there is a large shopping center called Globen City - with many bars, restaurants, and also a hotel.
Cirkus is nearby many bars and restaurants on the street Strandvägen, leading to Djurgården.
There is a GG at Hard Rock Café. Check out http://www.hardrock-se.com/, (it´s in swedish though... if you looking for a map, click on "Karta"). There will be lot of Stones activities at Hard Rock Café since Virgin and Hard Rock are making a big event of the Olympic Stadium show. But we will have our own tables (together with people from IORR and The Shidoobee boards) as long as we book them soon. Virgin has promised something special for us, I don't know what. If you wanna come along, don't hesitate, write me a note. :-) I haven't arranged any postshow party for the Olympia Stadium Show, but Hard Rock Café might be a good place to return to, it's a Friday night so all other pubs are probably pretty jammed anyway.
But the other GG's will be at a nice pub closer to the city, The Dubliner, check out http://www.dubliner.se/. There's no real plans for Saturday, but you can always look for other glimmers at The Dubliner after 01 p.m. when they open on Saturday, they closes at 3 a.m. But there are a lot of other nice pubs in Stockholm as well; The Loft http://www.geocities.com/loftstockholm/ Akkurat http://www.akkurat.se/, with a very good selection of single malts Gondolen http://www.restaurangguiden.com/sth/sodermal/gondolen/ Wirströms http://www.alltomstockholm.se/E/V/STOSE/0000/10/78/1.html Bistro Boheme http://www.bistro-boheme.se, click on "Hitta hit" for a map, Staropramen on tap :-) Harry B James, http://info.aos.se/E/V/STOSE/0000/05/88/1.html but there are so many more if you wanna go bar-hopping. :-)
On Sunday, The Globe Show day, I have booked tables at The Dubliner, they open at 04 p.m. I suggest we be there when the door opens since we have to take the subway to get to The Globe. They will close at 01 a.m. on Sunday, but if we're enough people on the postshow party they can keep it open until 03 a.m. :-)
I have booked tables at The Dubliner on Tuesday, The Cirkus show day, as well. They open the door at 04 p.m. and one can walk to The Cirkus, but it's not close, half an hour walk maybe. Other possibilities are bus, tram or boat. And taxi of course. The Dubliner closes at 03 a.m. on Tuesday even if we are only five of us who's thirsty after the show... ;-)
If you wanna join the parties, write me at [email protected] About 30 people have signed up for the GG's at The Dubliner so far.

Ronnie’s artshow in Stockholm will be at a computer company called Welltons Way, Birger Jarlsgatan 27 (near Stureplan). The exhibition will be shown for the press on July 17th, and the opening will be two days later. The company plans to ‘broadcast’ the opening live on their web site, www.broadbandbox.net/int/index.shtml.
Gröna Lund is a great amusement park 100 meters (steps) from Circus on Djurgården. Don't miss it!
