Shelsky's On Smith Street Celebrating Special Hollandse Nieuwe Haring

Peter Shelsky, the owner of Shelsky's, at 251 Smith Street, purveyor of the best smoked and pickled fish on this side of the Brooklyn Bridge, is really excited about a special delivery to his store.
You see, he has been trying to get his hands on some Hollandse Nieuwe Haring for a while now, and he finally scored some.  He is expecting a delivery this Friday.
Hollandse Nieuwe is the season’s first herring, which starts appearing at the beginning of June. Only Herring caught between May and July can be called 'nieuwe'.
To celebrate and to share this New Catch Holland Herring, Shelsky's is inviting everyone to a special event on Friday night to kick-off the season.

He'll be very lucky. The first barrel is being auctioned today (19th). It's delayed because there's not enough plankton and the fish aren't fat enough.
