State dinner for China: What to expect

By The Reliable Source

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.
