Mother wine

Mother wine / Mother pizza

Rarely do you hear the words “free” + “wine” + “pizza” in the same sentence. So, when my friend Nadja told me about a special birthday event at Mother with all of the above, I was totally game.

We started off at Mother’s new wine bar location in the inner city. It was packed, but they had wine flowing nonstop and it was a cinch grabbing a table and a few glasses.

We got to sit and chat for a couple hours, then decided to head over to the Black Diamond library to check out a music exhibit that was going on.

But first, a stop inside the Lapidarium of Kings.

This is basically a resting place for all the old statues of Copenhagen that are too weathered to survive in their original outdoor homes.

Big baby weirdness. Pretty trippy, and pretty cool.

Next up: The Black Diamond library and the Dome of Visions. Both can be filed under Really Awesome Copenhagen Architecture.

Beer was on tap inside. Naturally.

After the quick peek inside the Dome, we went and explored the Black Diamond. The inside is stunning.

The music aspect wasn’t quite what we were expecting, so we only hung around for a little bit before hopping back on our bikes.

Mother pizza

It was pizza time!

We biked the 10 minutes or so from the inner city to Vesterbro’s Meatpacking District and home of the original Mother location.

The lines look a little intimidating, but it never took more than 5 minutes to get a slice of pizza and more (free!) wine.

Imagine this times 4, cause that’s how many times we ended up going back for more. It was a grand ‘ole time.

Eventually the cold got the better of us, and we abandoned Mother’s birthday party for something indoors. Nadja recommended Kalaset, a little cafe right next to Torvehallerne.

This is a totally unrelated picture of some hotel right across the street. I wish I’d gotten a picture of Kalaset, but I guess I was a bit tipsy at this point and thought the red hotel signs were cooler than cool. Hah.

Anyway. I was still hungry after my 4 slices of pizza, so I got some ovn ristede kartoflers (ie, oven roasted potatoes) as a midnight snack. Nadja got an epic looking hot chocolate.

It was a nice way to unwind from the day (and soak up all the wine, let’s be real).
