Julbord at IKEA

IKEA hosts its annual Julbord feast Dec. 12: That's a Swedish dinner featuring specialties such as Swedish-style meatballs with lingonberries, the wonderfully promising "assorted varieties of herring," poached salmon, smoked salmon with horseradish sauce, cucumber salad, ham, sausages, red cabbage, boiled potato with dill, cheeses, Swedish rice pudding, Glögg with raisin almond mix (that's a hot spiced wine punch) and lots more. Tickets (there's limited seating) are $14.99 ($4.99 for kids 12 and younger).

IKEA Charlotte will have two seatings, at 4 and 6 p.m.; 8300 Ikea Blvd.; 888-888-4532.
