Lutefisk and Meatballs

Cuisine: Norwegian
Closest Major Intersection: 14th & Newland Street

We did this dinner last year and it's an adventure!  Lutefisk is a preserved fish that has a very interesting flavor and preparation.  The way they do it at the Sons of Norway Trollheim Lodge creates a fish that isn't fishy at all.  In fact, when I had it I could've sworn it was scalloped potatoes.  If you've never tried it, here's your chance!

In addition to the lutefisk they have yummy meatballs and fantastic side dishes and desserts.  It's a festival of sorts, and there is singing and a real sense of community.  It feels like a holiday celebration.  They even have a little store where you can buy Norwegian trinkets and books.

Tickets are $18 per person and children are welcome.  You must get your ticket on your own by printing and filling out the form and mailing it inBe sure to note on your form that you're with "Monica's Meetup" so they seat you with the rest of the group. They will then mail your ticket to you.  The dinner has sold out, so if you don't have a ticket you're out of luck.

We'll probably go out for drinks after the dinner if anyone's up for it.  Check out the About Us page so you know what to expect, especially concerning no shows and how to avoid them. Please vote in the polls so we know which days and times work best for you. See you soon!

    What a nice evening! I really enjoy being around the people at the Sons of Norway. And the food was so good. I'm full!

    I'll be there a little after 5PM. Last year the parking lot was pretty full so you might want to be a little early, too. If you don't see us in the lobby just ask the person taking your tickets where the "Monica party" is (or Meetup if they don't know). Don't forget to bring your ticket!

    If someone finds that they cannot make this event at the last minute, I would be happy to purchase your ticket. I dropped the ball and didn't mail in for my ticket in time.

    Hey all, I just heard from the Sons of Norway that the lutefisk dinner is sold out. So, if you have a ticket you're good to go. If you don't, you'll need to change your "yes" RSVP to "no" and join us next year. Bummer!

      Had it a few times at undergrad and have no desire to have it again. That was enough..and then some. You can have the full supply, Monica. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
