from:    Lennart LŲvstrand  
  Millennium Midsummer Madness
when: Saturday, June 24 2:00 pm to 12:00 am
location: Sveadal / Uvas Canyon County Park
notes: Edit Notes

The herring allures you...
The aquavit commands you...
The singing makes you want to run the hell away...

...but nevertheless you come. Why? Because you can't help it. Like the Christmases of your childhood and the birthdays of your adolescence, you now find yourself wanting -- no, needing -- no, DEMANDING -- a quick solstice fix to set your body free and your spirit soaring. Or should that be liquor pouring? Never mind, the time has come to once again gather the Brethren of the Holy Herring and Friends of the Matjes for a celebration of Light in the Middle of the Winter... No, wait, that was Lucia... I mean Middle of Summer. (I guess we Swedes just like to celebrate Light, no matter when.)

The traditional fare of pickled herring, chives, sour cream, and potatoes will be provided together with bread, cheese, and ice cold shots of Swedish aquavit. Please BYOB(eer) and anything else you'd want to eat. This year, I thought weíd try to go completely Swedish and celebrate in the midst of Mother Nature.

Please note that space at the site is likely to be limited, so firm responses plus counts are much appreciated. Thank you.

For more explanations on what all this is about, see the Organizer. For descriptions of previous Sillphests, see the totally pathetic Lennart's Parties Page.

(Fiddler not included. Maypole optional. Green grass... in California? You gotta be kidding!)

*** UPDATE! *** UPDATE! *** UPDATE! ***

We have a location and a change of time. We even have a Maypole and a Swedish folk rock band!
