In wanting to do a little more research on Bodum’s Fyrkat grill (pictured below), a Google search yielded far different results. Though I should have just gone to the company’s site for all the specs, I’m glad to have come across a different Fyrkat: the oldest of Denmark’s former Viking ring castles.
Bookending the week with another Viking-themed spot seemed appropriate seeing as how A) I need to pick up a Fyrkat grill, or some form of portable grilling station for a BBQ party this weekend where B) Kubb, or Viking chess, will no doubt be played.
I am opting for the Bodum brand solely due to the name and how gosh darn adorable I find it. But now that I know it has Viking castle connotations, and not to mention a cool modern look, it might just seal the deal on the whole thing. Of course, I may want to put a bit of a freeze on my spending what with the possible iPad purchase this weekend, so I should urge one of my partygoers to get it. $50 at Urban. Come on. Do it! Also, party this weekend. Cheesman Park. 1:30. Bring food and beer and park games. Kubb is covered. We got the Kubb.
