Submitted by Anthony Robinson: With all of its Norwegian heritage Seattle can be a culinary trip sometimes. A few blocks from our place there's a Norwegian bakery, Norwegian bar, and Norwegian fish monger. The bar has weird liquor called Aquavit that's made from seeds and will destroy you, the bakery has pastries with names I can't pronounce, and the fish shop always has disgusting looking stuff.
Regardless, sometimes you just have to say what the fuck and tear into that putrid fishy nonsense. These were smoked Copper River smelt. I guess you can eat the heads, but the texture didn't do much for me so I just ripped em' off and munched the rest. They look terrible, but are actually really good and freak old ladies out too.
Originally the club was a youth club at the Eton Mission in Hackney Wick, London in 1959, led by the Reverend John Oaks. Father William Shergold, a rider himself, decided to hold a church service for fellow two wheelers in 1962
Father Shergold finally got up the courage to visit The Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road and hand out leaflets about the service. The response was immense. The church was full of Rockers! Even some of their bikes were brought into the church to be blessed.
