Lymy Aperitivo 12: Tรถรถlรถn Pyรถrรค (Feb 28)

Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. โ™ฅ

In this winter’s round of Aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our fourth Aperitivo in the series is on Friday February 28th with the worker owned co-op bikeshop Tรถรถlรถn Pyรถrรค. The co-op celebrated it’s fourth birthday last fall and is only gaining momentum. The shop offers bike maintenance, a curated selection of bicycle components and custom bike builds – not to mention expert advice on all topics cycling related. It has been described as both the best and the friendliest bike shop in Helsinki.

The topics we will be touching on include the politics and practicalities of running a co-op and the experience of “working for yourself”. How is a bike shop a political space? Or is it – even one that is worker owned? We will also explore the question of “why cycling?” and what is the vision of cycling the members of Tรถรถlรถn Pyรถrรค want to promote.

The evening will consist of a short introduction by us (starting at 19) followed by a discussion with our guests. The evening continues withย hanging out in a more informal setting till around 21.

You are warmly welcome to the twelth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Tรถรถlรถn Pyรถrรค and spend a wonderful evening together!

Aperitivo 11 with Loukko on Jan 10

Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. โ™ฅ

In this winter’s round of aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our third aperitivo in the series is with the subcultural center Loukko. Loukko is a space on Castrรฉninkatu 7 in Kallio, with diverse program and possibilities, it’s a gallery, stage, cafรฉ, hangout space as well as a space for a wide array of workshops and events. Loukko provides a space for (sub)culture with a focus on safer space and accessibility.ย 

We have given them the following questions as suggestions for what we might be interested in thinking about together with them on Friday and beyond: What are the political implications of having a space? How does having a space affect the collective? What are some challenges with having and maintaining a space and how do you deal with them? What made you decide to get a space?

The evening will consist of a very short introduction by us (starting at 6:30), a presentation by our guests (between 20-50 min) and some discussion followed by hanging out in a more informal setting till 9.

You are warmly welcome to the tenth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Loukko and spend a wonderful evening together!

How To Stay Lit โ€” Lymy 4 Years

Four years of learning how to kindle a fire andโ€”more importantlyโ€”keep it going. Of tending to the fickle flames that at times were reduced to little more than waning embers. And at others warmed our weary bones by bringing friendsโ€”old and new alikeโ€”together around the modest hearth of our ill-equipped kitchen. Four years of fanning the flames and feeding the fire by blowing kisses, hissing hexes, whistling comforting tunes. Learning how to care. How to neither burn out nor fade away. ๐ป๐‘œ๐“Œ ๐“‰๐‘œ ๐“ˆ๐“‰๐’ถ๐“Ž ๐“๐’พ๐“‰.

The event starts with a discussion about the text and is followed by a four years party.

In this winter’s round of aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our second aperitivo in the series is with the collective behind Mustan kanin kolo (‘the black rabbit’s burrow’). Kolo is an antiquarian book store and infoshop located on the next block over from Lymy at Hรคmeentie 26. The store has been around for 10 years this fall so it’s only fitting that we have them over for our 10th aperitivo!

We have given them the following questions as suggestions for what we might be interested in thinking about together with them on Friday and beyond: What are the political implications of having a space?
