Tonight's blog is a quick pitch.
For the past 2 months, the staff at my restaurant has poured themselves into a major event: Snømarket. We've built a Nordic fishing village in our parking lot, where we'll be selling everything from cookies to akvavit, from marionettes to bandanas. There will be a raw bar, horse drawn carriage rides, & you can even get your picture taken with a yeti.
I've never been prouder to be a part of a team. The amount of work going into this celebration is astounding.
I'm off to make another batch of glögg. Please consider coming to the parking lot behind my restaurant--The Norwegian--at 1402 N Main Street in Rockford this weekend. We'll be throwing the outdoor winter party of our lives. Hope you're having a great holiday season. -Em
