Restaurant Day

Helsinki, 23 degrees


An optimist is a man who plants two acorns and buys a hammock.

What a weekend! You might remember my blog post from last year (if not, you'll find it here) telling about one of the most eventful weekends that Helsinki has in the beginning of the summer season! This weekend occured last week, when we had among others the following events in town.

Mikä viikonloppu takana! Muistatte varmaan viime vuotisen blogikirjoitukseni, jossa kerroin Helsingin kevään tapahtumarikkaimmasta viikonlopusta. Kyseinen viikonloppu toimii aina kesäkauden aloituksena, ainakin omasta mielestäni. Tänä vuonna se sattui myös olemaan tämän vuoden tähän asti lämpimin viikonloppu! Tässä alla näette joitakin viime viikonlopun tapahtumia Helsingissä.


Out of these events I visited Arabia's Urban Festival, Restaurant Day, the Abattoir's Summer Opening and the Hanami Celebration! This blog post is dedicated to the Abattoir's Summer Opening! It was wonderful with the whole courtyard filled with Fatboy's Buggle-up sacks, parasols, tents, hammocks, sun beds and fun decorations! I enjoyed some goodies, like organic cookies and Harjun Makkaratehdas' yummy lamb sausages as well as Raikastamo's delicious lemonade!

Näistä tapahtumista oli vaikeeta valita, mutta päätin käydä Arabian katufestivaalissa, Ravintolapäivässä, Teurastamon kesäkauden avajaisissa ja Hanami-juhlassa! Tässä blogikirjoituksessa ajattelin kertoa Teurastamon kesäkauden avajaisista. Avajaiset olivat todella onnistuneet kun Teurastamon koko sisäpiha oli täynnä Fatboyn säkkejä, auringonvarjoja, telttoja, riippumattoja, aurinkotuoleja ja hauskoja koristeita! Tietysti minun oli pakko maistaa joitakin sisäpihan herkkuja, joten maistoin luomukeksejä, Harjun Makkaratehtaan lammasmakkaroita ja Raikastamon raikkaita limonadeja!


I also visited Tuoretori, located inside the Abattoir, for the first time and I must say that I can't wait to go back - it had such a great selection of Finnish foodie treats like rye bread, chocolate, cheese, vegetables, juices and berry delicacies!

Kävin myös Tuoretorilla ensimmäistä kertaa ja minun on pakko kehua paikka koska siellä oli tarjolla niin laajasti kotimaisia ruokaherkkuja!


On this sunny Saturday, I wore a sequin top that matched with its gold and silver sequins my grey jeans (seen for instance in this blog post).

Aurinkoisena lauantaina minulla oli päällä paljettitoppi, jonka stailasin harmaiden farkkujen kaveriksi. Farkut näette mm. tässä blogikirjoituksessa.


What kind of events would you like to visit Helsinki for? Do you ever travel for events?

Mikä tapahtuma saisi teidät tulemaan Helsinkiin? Matkusteletteko tapahtumien perässä?

  3. That's definitely a great amount of events! Helsinkians surely know how to enjoy late Spring. The pictures made me think that I should definitely store a load of Finnish chocolate when I manage to get back there. Nice outfit as well :)

    Take care!

  8. nope, I don't travel especially for events. at least so far I haven't done it. if I want to visit an event (mostly some fairs) I do it here in Estonia since our summer season offers so many of those. and your photos actually reminded me of our own festivals. so much colours, people, stuff happening everywhere. I definitely have to visit a fair sometime soon!
