Exclamation Friday night Wisconsin fish boil - alternate menu

The Friday meet & greet is featuring a traditional Wisconsin whitefish boil. This menu includes whitefish, corn on the cob, potatoes, and onions. There will also be a soup and salad bar with two soups and a variety of salad and topping choices.

What is a fish boil? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fish_boil

If you are not a fan of fish, we have an alternate plated meal available for you upon request. This alternate meal will be a 1/2 rotisserie apple cinnamon glazed chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and veggies.

If you'd like the alternate meal instead of the main fish course, please post in this thread. One meal per person, and you MUST be registered for this event.

If you haven't registered for the meet & greet and you'd like to attend, please sign up here: http://events.tdiclub.com no later than Sunday night, August 28th.

Thanks!

I am registering my preference for the alternate meal. I'm not a big fan of the sea critters.

Same here. I need the alternate meal.

Last year in Maine I overdid it with beef and also ate lots of bacon and sausage at the continental breakfasts. I ended up with a massive Gout flareup in my left ankle. NOT FUN at all. Pain was excruciating and ranked 9/10 to 10/10 on the doctor's standard pain scale and I could hardly walk at all. It wiped me out for a few days and kept me out of work for a week.

Beef, bacon, and sausage seem to be the trigger foods that do it to me. They are high in purines which contribute to high uric acid levels. Shellfish and other sea critters are also high in purines. Alcohol is another risk factor. Fortunately I'm a non-drinker. Now I have to avoid beef, bacon and sausage, all of which I love. Chicken is OK.

Glad you're registered! Your fish comment reminded me of a now closed music venue in Baltimore. There was a business in town that was started in the early 40s called Charles Fish and Sons. They lasted until ~1980 but the brick building still stands with the original polished black marble sign. After it closed, it became a very popular bar and music venue named "No Fish Today". Saw a lot of great acts there in the day.

Gotcha covered. Anyone who wants chicken instead of fish, make sure your name is listed in the first post.

Today is the last call for food (for real this time). We are placing our orders tomorrow morning, so please sign up for any meal events that you're interested in. If you'd prefer a chicken dish at the Friday night fish boil, please post in this thread.

We are bouncing between the fish and chicken alternative so we have agreed that I would have the fish and Mrs. aja8888 will go with the chicken. Please add Mrs. aja8888 (Evelyn) on the alternative meal list.

Thanks!
