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