Calçotada

with one comment

A Catalan tradition that happens between the end of Winter and April. A variety of green onion, called Calçots, are consumed by the masses. Typically accompanied by a salvitxada or romesco sauce, the calçots are barbequed and enjoyed with red wine or cava.

This calçotada took place in New York City, at a restaurant called Boqueria.

The Viking Army

leave a comment »

The Viking Army is the official supporters club of Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls. As their website decribes, they are “boisterous Red Bull New York supporters who all share a tremendous passion for Red Bulls soccer.”

The entire 90-minutes, the die-hard fans are waving flags, singing, chanting, and dancing.

Their club carries some stipulations with their supporter policy:

The Viking Army SC is open to all Red Bull NY fans as long as you hate the Philly Bimbos, The D.C. Scum, and Cardboard “Cosmos”, and bleed Red Bull NY.

The New York Red Bulls home is at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
