We’re ready and open for business! The party starts at 6 P.M., where you’ll be greeted with a welcome drink, homemade gravlax, double smoked leg of lamb, Brennivin, and rotten shark.
The Swedish American Museum is one magical place, thanks to you, and thanks to Hermann Arason, Hemmi Boy, who’ll be back with his guitar leading the room in song and dance, and, thanks to Master Chef Ari Hallgrímsson who’ll be in charge of the food and ready to answer all your questions about Icelandic traditions, old or new.
On the dinner table you’ll find standards such as pickled rams’ testicles, sheared sheep heads, dried haddock, blood pudding, liver pudding, hangikjöt, rye and flat bread, and other delicacies you’ve been craving…
For dessert we’ll have a traditional ‘Kaffihlaðborð’ with pönnukökur, kleinur, marengstertur, Siggi’s skyr, and other goodies prepared by our members.
We’ll treat you to the best Glacial water in the world BUT for other drinks, this is a BYOB event.
We’ll have our famous and forever popular raffle, where you can win a ticket from Icelandair to the Old Country, Icelandic music, design wool products, chocolates, art work, limo ride, and many more unique prizes.
Þorrablót is a fun filled night a la Icelanders’ style where ´maðr er manns gaman.´ We look forward to seeing you all and sing and dance the night away.
