There's attempting to make the most out of your lunch break, and then there's this: In Stockholm, Swedes are spending their lunch breaks sweating it outâ€”but not in the gym. "Lunch Beat" is the new craze.
The lunch-break dance party started In July 2010 with a mere 14 people and rapidly grew into a phenomenon that draws crowds of hundreds, and has spread to other cities in Sweden and other countries in Europe.
Creator Daniel Odelstad says the hour-long event involves doing as much as possible, and though there's no alcohol served, the 100 kronor ($15) cover will get you a sandwich:
"The first rule of Lunch Beat is that you have to dance," [Odelstad] said while checking prepaid tickets at the door. "If you don't want to dance during your lunch hour, then you should eat your lunch somewhere else."
Go hard, or go home.
