Sundin Bash in Iceland

Hey guys!
Just wanted to tell you I am hosting The Bachelor Party of a certain Mats Sundin tonight here in Iceland at my place. Yes - The Mats Sundin. Tonight - Hotel Ranga (www.hotelranga.is). Tomorrow Reykjavik. There anything can happen. And I am sure it will...
Ummmm - First course was Vanilla Cod. Second starter Smoked puffin & truffle/celleriac root soup. 3rd starter - Wild salmon & champagne/strawberries. Just about to carry in the 4th course - which is a foal pastrami. I am also about to bring out The Black death.
Peace.
This is REAL COOL. I will post pics too.

Wow, I dont know which is crazier to me, the fact that Sundin is at your place(which is awesome) or the fact that you serve Puffin, the little cute penguin-like creature =p

Wow, never knew people ate them. Found this on wiki

DaGoon- I have spoken with Mats & Fredrick Modin. They are cool with having some pics posted...


So there is that.

Appropriate hmmmmmmm

That is a word outside my understanding and vocabulary.

Anyways - Course 5 was my version of an Icelandic surf & turf (Mountain Lamb + Icelandic lobster), course 6 was Estragon spiced strawberries with champagne sorbet, course 7 was a Skyrcake (kinda like cheesecake) with chocolate & mango. lots of whiskey & cognac to wash it all down...
Freddie said a lot of good things about Torts btw. Said he was a real winner.
We drank our whiskey until 06:00. One guy - unnamed - went a bit nuts and started a fight with some other hotel guests (how boring is that?) and tried to molest my 10-foot polar bear - other than that all was very behaved and civilized. Now we are off to riding 4wd Quadbikes up glaciers, rivers, volcanoes and valleys by some stunning waterfalls. Then Reykjavik - The Sin City of the North. Take care & talk to you all again soon.
I have a few pics that will be up tommorrow including Mats dressed as a Viking riding an Icelandic horse...

I recognize puffin & skyr from the show Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel.

From my understanding they're both delicious. In fact, I'm going to go to Whole Foods just to get the commercial skyr.

UPDATE

Well - first we dressed up Mats as a Viking by the hotel and he rode around the confines of the hotel on horseback. He was quite a sight to see - riding by the banks of the Ranga River - resembling a proud Viking Lord heading home with hardly fought treasures acquired after plundering abroad - in the bloodstained landscape of the infamous Njáls Saga.

We thereafter had an adventurous quadbike tour through Thjorsadalur Valley crossing rivers and seeing the sites of the 120 meter Háifoss waterfalls, the Gjáin Gorge, Hjalparfoss waterfall and The Burfell Mountain. It took around 5 hours and was a total blast in some real dramatic, unspoiled beautiful scenery..

We then went to Reykjavik, tried dining a great 8-course dinner at The Fishmarket Restaurant... And then we hit the town around midnight. I will leave out all the details for the sake of all involved - but it truly a great time for all who were there. We drank over 30 bottles of champagne and like 7-8 bottles of vodka at te clubs B5 + Apotek - the last of us staggered in at 7 AM to the hotel.

It was truly a GREAT Bachelors party together with a real great bunch of people. Mats is a real nice guy with incredible charisma and pondus - as is Fredde Modin. Mats is quite a dancer too - he spent the better part of an hour boogeying it up with my fiancé Karolina. What a night to remember - when the Swedish Vikings took over and dominated the maddening streets of Reykjavik - as it gloomfully heads into its darkest autumn ever I will ask my brother for some pics as I had no camera.

I am however quite certain that Mats will announce his retirement soon - although he never said this and it was politefully never brought up. Which is probably a good thing in many ways. May his marriage and life off the center ice be as successful as his NHL & National team career & legacy have been!

Really, really spent today as it seems that I appear to have a real severe case of the wine flu Over & out.

It is endangered elsewhere - here the population is in the millions and therefore limited hunting is allowed as this is a very traditional hunt for Icelanders and a sought out staple of food in certain areas...
