Vegas Viking President Erik Pappa
Go, Knights, go! Anyone who’s attended a Vegas Golden Knights hockey game is used to hearing those words.
But when you wear your brand new Viking ocular helmet at the St. Patrick’s Day parade and someone shouts "Go, Knights, Go" at you when you’re clearly dressed as a Viking, you might get a little perturbed.
"I’m a Viking, not a frickin’ knight!" is fairly close to how I responded.
If I had been wearing horns, no one would have confused me for a knight. But we all know that wouldn’t be au-thentic.
Building an authentic brigade of Vikings to appear at community events is the impetus behind a get-together Saturday, April 14th at 10 a.m. at Lorenzi Park, 3343 W Washington Ave., just off Rancho Drive. We will meet on the southeast side of the lake, just east of the white footbridge that stretches across the lake. There are some shade trees there.
Any and all are welcome! If you want to be part of our Viking brigade and have fun, I encourage you to join us.
Rick Senzig will demonstrate Viking sword-fighting techniques and cover authentic weapons, armor and clothing. We will have weapons and shields for people to practice with.
As great as the St. Patrick's Day parade was this year with a wonderful lodge turnout and a handful of Vi-kings interacting with the kids along the route -- not to mention the large, enthusiastic crowd -- imagine how impressive we would be if we had 25 Viking berserkers in front of that ship! How cool would that be?
The April 14th session is a step in that direction. Go, Vikings, Go!

so many inquiries for a super good lefse recipe, so here it is............
8 cups Russet potatoes, boiled and riced
1 cup whipping cream
2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
Directions - Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight. Makes it easy to roll out.
Next day add flour and mix well. Measure out about 1/4 cup of mix per lefse. Form into balls and keep in refrigerator until ready to roll.
Roll on pastry cloth to about 10-12 inch in size, fry both sides on hot lefse grill at 450°.
Butter the lefse and sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy!!
If you need a lefse grill, just do a search on Google. I have the non-stick Teflon grill.
Where to find Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas:
IKEA in Las Vegas - Address: 6500 IKEA Way, Las Vegas, NV 89148

The international Market, just South on Decatur by Tropicana. I just went there last week and found multer (cloud berries), Vestland Lefse,
Daim sjokolade. I am a happy camper!!! Also bought gul ost, geit ost, sursild and blueberry and black currant juice. Fiskeboller and knekkebrød. You have to do some searching to find the Scandinavian foods, most are in the back just before the fresh vegetables but they really do have some goodies.
They will also order special items if you fill out a request. The more people that go there and purchase Scandinavian food, the more they will get and keep re-stocking. So, if you want to be able to buy Scandinavian foods in Las Vegas, please go there. It is an amazing store and great prices.
Total Wine & More now carry Linie Aquavit here in Las Vegas. I know many people have asked where to find that. Stop in and tell them how great this is and get some for that special occation.
