Getting Up Guide: Haggis and beer for Robert Burns
A quick survey of Tuesday night's what-and-where:
State of the Union
Last weekend, bars across the country were filled with people drinking beers and cheering for the Packers and Steelers. Tonight, bars across the city will be filled with people drinking beers and watching President Obama's State of the Union address.
Robbie Burns Beer Dinner
Literary types the world over honor the January 25 birthday of Scottish poet Robert Burns with special haggis-and-whisky dinners, and one of the area's best is at Mad Box Brewing Company in Falls Church. The night kicks off with haggis (and the traditional potatoes and parsnips) paired with a cask-conditioned version of Madden's 80 Shilling Scottish Ale. Other courses include Scottish salmon in lemon butter sauce and a roast leg of lamb with the new Tuppers India Ink Black IPA.
