Cocktails at the Castle this Thursday at ASI
Glass-blowing, Indeed Beer, and Pumphouse ice cream this Thursday at ASI
For the second time this summer, the American Swedish Institute is hosting Cocktails at the Castle. This Thursday starting at 7:00 p.m., the institute will kick off a night of food, drink, and festivities, all is inspired by the Swedish tradition of hyttsill.
Historically glassworks were located at the center of the village and thus doubled as a community gathering place. Hyttsill, which translates literally to "hot shop herring," comes from the practice of cooking food in the glass blowing ovens after they cooled down, usually to feed a crowd and fuel the evening festivities .
