Annual Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry

Bring your friends and join us for a unique outdoor dining experience – a traditional fondue with a western twist

Pictured to the left, in a parody of Grant Wood’s iconic 1930 painting ‘American Gothic’ are Roger and the late Jo Norman, co-founders of the first Lind House Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry. 

The steaks are the star at the 4th Annual Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry which will be held on Friday, September 11, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Hermann Heights Park Shelters.

Choice beef steak cooked on a pitchfork in a cauldron of hot oil is the showstopper, but it’s the homemade baked beans and locally grown corn on the cob that add to the charm of this traditional style of cowboy cooking. Ice cream treats are for dessert and beverages include water, 1919 Root Beer, as well as other soft drinks. Guests are more than welcome to bring their own wine and beer.

Take-outs will be available. Cost is $20 per person. A $5 hot dog child’s meal will also be available. Tickets may also be purchased at HyVee, the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce Office or from a member of the Lind House Board of Directors.

Proceeds will be used to fund Lind House remodeling projects, which include installing additional kitchen cupboards and refinishing the kitchen floor and wooden countertops.

The Society is dedicated to the idea that reading and listening to plays allows the participants to understand the words and themes of the author more clearly than in some performances. The series is named after the former Governor’s wife, Alice Lind, a supporter of social causes and literacy.

The Alice Lind Play Reading Society began with a proposal from the NUACT Board of Directors to the Board of the Lind House to participate in a joint venture. After several meetings, the first reading occurred on May 8, 2012 with a reading of “A Doll’s House” by Henrik Ibsen. There has been an uninterrupted play reading schedule since the founding.

Plays are selected with the criteria that they are great pieces of literature and contain universal truths and/or significant themes. Many of the selections have won Tony Awards or Pulitzer prizes for literature. Suggestions are always welcome for the following season. Volunteers will be asked to read parts throughout the evening. Depending on attendance, the leading roles may be read by several people for each act or scene. Persons attending do not have to read or may request smaller roles to read. Suggestions from the public for future plays are strongly encouraged.
