Lately scourge of the Danes

You know me, and perhaps you know Copenhagen, capital city of the Danes and home of the wonderful, pointy-faced philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. Well, I am in Copenhagen for the next thirty hours or so, hotelling in multi-ethnic Norrebro. Tell me (knowing me, and knowing this town) what I should do?

I've already seen the Henrik Vibskov shop, which was the most exciting boutique I've seen in years, with copies of FRUiTS and Tune lying around, fabulous donkey blanket ponchos, a "beard hat", an adult-sized baby cocoon, and other wonders, all acid-ziggurat-coloured. I could see the Tjili Pop cafe, eat at Wagamama, check out Icelandic art by Steingrimur Eyfjord, look at a flea market, catch a Billy Childish show. But you -- who know me, and know Copenhagen -- tell me what to do!
