Local chef Tom Coohill will team up with Iceland's Chef Hákon Már Örvarsson to provide a four-course prix fixe menu at Coohills, 1400 Wewatta Street; the dinner will be available through September 30 at $65 a plate, or $95 with wine. "It will be a traditional Nordic cuisine," says event organizer Hlynur Gudjonsson. "Plenty of dried fish, lamb, dulse seaweed and skyr (yogurt), which have been a part of Iceland's diet since the time of the Vikings."
On Saturday, check out Reykjavik Calling, a free concert at 8 p.m. at the Gothic Theatre featuring Denver musicians Joe Sampson and Patrick Dethlefs working with emerging Icelandic artists like Lay Low and Mugison. "They've never met before, and they don't know each other," Gudjonsson says. "We're trying to get these culture's to collide to create something new and interesting."
And finally, Denver film enthusiasts are invited on Sunday to free screenings of Summerland, 2:30 p.m., and Inni, 4:15 p.m., two Icelandic films that will be shown at the L2 Arts and Culture Center, 1477 Columbine Street.
