We abandoned the site on wednesday because the food selection at the event is miserable. The food served at the 'Bunk House' rates worse than a school cafeteria and I can only take so many gyros from Phils grill. We ate at a place called Copelands of New Orleans. It was a bit swankier than we were expecting but the food was great. There were eight of us, merchants all, including Scott from 'viking-u-like'. He's Dainish but lives in Germany. Funny guy with a lot of great stories. He knows all manner of stuff about Vikings, Danes, Rus, you name it. He'd never had cajun food before but I think he likes it.
After the meal we cought 300 again. Awesome. There was a trailer for 'Pathfinder' which I commented on in an earlier post. The depictions of the vikings is truly cringeworthy. I asked Scott what he thought.
'I think I want to see it, but I feel kind of dirty about it.'
Maybe a protest is in order. The christians are always bitching about how jesus is portrayed. But who speaks for the peace loving Vikings? Anyone want to dress up like a Viking and carry a sign?
