...but my wife can't stand golf. And Gentleman Jack doesn't work for her. Super Bowl? A Ketzos?

Oh no, HHM is gonna hit me with a nature walk or something corny like that...

In all seriousness, your point is well taken. HHM is always right. But I still believe that a zoom call with the fraternity / oilam of likeminded guys would be epic...

But I get it; I know that that can never happen : (
Oh well, back to work.
Fun is for the next world.

OMG! IMG!
The chefs have started their preparations....
The bakers are making the Chalos...
The members of the band are tuning their instruments...
The party planners (Do they have those in Grodna?) are starting to set up...
The children are making the pekelach...
The BIG 90 is coming to the city of Grodna....

Thanks Lou.

I responded to your kind words on my thread, but it means a lot to me that you posted here as well...

So many simchas! can we make a mega party somewhere warm please?

What's the weather like now in Grodno? Do you have space to host the oilam?

You can let the shochet know that we need a cow shechted for the party, it will definitely be fleishig. Old-fashioned craft beer I think is also a thing where you come from so we'll make sure there is a lot of it. Did you guys even drink anything else? Oh, of course, lots of Vodka!

We have to put all the cheap cuts into the cholent and the prime rib we can roast nice and slow on a woodstove with crushed pepper, kosher salt and a touch rosemary. Paired with a Malbec from Psagot and the Shiloh red (speak to  the party planner, he will know what it's called). 

The heilegeh IshMiGrodno will be speaking at 8:30 Grodno time. 

The "Klezmatics" will be providing entertainment for the evening.

For those who think they know what Jewish music used to sound like in der heim, there will also be a corner where we will play quietly Shloimy Daskal and some of the older Yaakov Shwekeys.

There will also be earplugs available for the seniors among us.

Cant wait! See you there!

WNGU,

Grodno has the greatest klezmer band of all time:

1) R' Twersky's Hoshiah
2) Avremel's Ki Saavor Bamayim
3) Abie's Hinei Lo Yonum

Kumzitz is Avremel's Yachid V'Rabim, Abie's habein Yakir and R' Shlomo's Pischu Li

​Then we all listen to Memories by Abie Rotenberg and cry our hearts out as our neshamos undergo the tahara that only music can do.

As for food, Gentleman Jack and mint chip ice cream is all that is needed (did I just reveal my identity?)

If you want me to speak, it will litvish and dry; I believe that zedj appreciates Likutei Sichos and Tanya so ask OveidElokim or someone more worthy of the heilige words of chabad chasidus

And Lou, speaking of Zedj, he is an all time great; I feel honored to know him!

Finally, there is no place that bridges the gaps between the litvish and chasidishe world like GYE; even Grodno warmly embraces the beautiful words and sounds of both...so you can add R' Boruch Ber's Sim Shalom and R' Meir Shapiro's V'taheir Libeinu as the finale.

With brotherhood and varmkeit from Grodno ~ IMG

Thank you @lou and  @Ish MiGrodno for arranging such an elaborate grand  gala in honor of my 90 days clean.
It really means alot to me and my personal journey forward.

Although apparently the Grodno cuisine doesn't include sushi I, through unconventional means was able to sneak in a few rolls of sushi...
Then took a back door exit to an undisclosed location and celebrated my 90 days with a mixed grill platter...

On a serious note...thank you to all the GYE members for the very needed and much appreciated constant chizuk and inspiration

MAZEL TOV!!!

Re: L'chaim! Let's Celebrate! 22 Feb 2021 05:40 #363929

Mazal Tov Reb ZJ!

Oooooh Sushi.... The grill was only for those who appreciate cooked food...

Exceptions can be made for the ba'al simcha though.

@IshMiGrodno, I thing the only frozen delicacy in Grodno at this time is snow cones.
