1. Restaurant Day
Four times a year, hundreds of pop-up restaurants suddenly emerge from nowhere. Why? Simply because people love food and love coming up with crazy and/or unique restaurant concepts. The now-global Restaurant Day movement was born in Helsinki in 2011. It’s a huge community day when people roam the streets to visit as many pop-up stands as possible. Strangers will eat at each other’s homes. What began as a carnivalesque protest against strict legislation has now become the new normal.
