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.

January 12, 2019 - Sweater Day - Illinois Bicentennial

Our annual Sweater day for January invites our members to wear their favorite Norwegian Sweater, or recycle the ugly Christmas sweater if you are so disposed.
Our speaker this month is Gary Midkiff. Gary is a college professor who teaches MBA students, undergraduate business students and gifted high school students for Chicago area colleges including North Park University. Besides teaching American history, Gary is a published author and speaker. Gary has a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from the University of Chicago and a Masters Degree in Finance from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
In honor of the Illinois Bicentennial (Dec. 3, 2018), Professor Gary Midkiff has compiled a list of the 10 most important events in the history of our state (plus a few more that deserve attention). He will cover events from all corners of the state and connect many of those Illinois events to national history. Chicago will contribute a few stories (e.g. the Great Chicago Fire of 1871) but so will East St. Louis (the race riots of 1917) and the towns of Alton, Charleston, Freeport, Galesburg, Jonesboro, Ottawa and Quincy (sites of the 1858 Lincoln – Douglas debates).
The reservation line is open.

December 8, 2018 - Christmas Celebration
