State dinner for China: What to expect
If you're going to the state dinner tonight... spoiler alert! Here's what's in store for you, according to information released by the White House Wednesday afternoon:
The White House will be serving its more than 225 guests a haute meat-and-potatoes meal: Dry-aged rib-eye steak, buttermilk crisp onions, double-stuffed potatoes, and creamed spinach. That's after a first-course of pear salad, and a second course of poached Maine lobster with orange-glazed carrots and black trumpet mushrooms.
The post-dinner entertainment will be heavy on jazz, with Dianne Reeves and Herbie Hancock among the musicians slated to perform.
