Ikea's Julbord is modeled after the traditional smorgasbord that is laid out on tables in Sweden during the Christmas season. But rather than the traditional multicourse menu, Ikea's offering all the dishes at the same time in a buffet including meatballs and lingonberries, smoked salmon with horseradish sauce, herring, hard-boiled eggs with lumpfish roe or shrimp, plus desserts, glogg, and other beverages. The event also takes place at the same time at Ikea's Schaumburg location (1800 McConnor Parkway, Schaumburg, 847-969-9700).
Price: $15.99, $2.50 for kids 12 and under
