If you ever find yourself in Chicago the second Saturday of the month, and you have a craving for some Torsk, the solution may be a visit to the Chicago Torske Klub. - Stavanger Aftenblad - 26 May 2006
Welcome to the Chicago Torske Klub Web Site at torskeklub.org! It's good to be in Chicago on the second Saturday of the month. We will update this monthly for current events and dinner meeting news.
February 10, 2018 - Ladies Day- "If Statues Could Talk, What Would They Say?"
The Annual Ladies Day Luncheon invites the ladies in the lives of our members, their friends and guests to February gathering. Our speaker for that day is Beth Sair, who has agreed to speak and share her passion and presentation about the Statues of Chicago.
We are also joined by Normennenes, who is the oldest continuously performing Norwegian Singing society of North America. They will start our luncheon.
This has historically been extremely well attended, and the table of ten rule applies. For those parties of ten requiring a table to sit together, one of party should reserve the table before 11:45am on the day of the luncheon. No individual seating will be reserved before that time, but all seating will be open after 11:45am to reserve by each diner. Cocktails are at noon, luncheon at 1pm.
January 13, 2018 - Sweater Day - Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Led by Mr. Vernon Squires, the program told the story of the Great Lakes freighter, the Edmund Fitzgerald, beginning with its construction, it years of sailing on the Great Lakes as one of the largest freighters afloat, the still unexplained sinking of the ship in November 1975 with the loss of the entire crew, and the preservation of the memory of the "Fitz". The sinking was memorialized by the haunting ballad composed and sung by Gordon Lightfoot and which serves as the backdrop for the presentation.
