On Sunday, the Scandinavian East Coast Museum will celebrate Fastelavn. Come in costume, hit the barrel (an alarming medieval custom now practiced in a benign manner), and eat delicious cream buns. The event includes dinner, beverages, coffee, dessert, games, prizes, and music by Elin Lindstrom. Check out last year’s pictures here.

The party goes from 3 to 7 pm Sunday, Feb. 22, at the Danish Athletic Club, 735 65th St, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. All-inclusive admission is $25 for adults, $15 for 7–17, and $10 for under 7. For reservations, call Victoria at (718) 748-5950 or Reidun at (718) 748-7844.
