As excitement bubbles for the inauguration of our 44th president, hordes of supporters are flocking to Washington D.C. to witness this historic event in person.  If you happen to be in the area, check out one of our seventeen DC/Baltimore Metro area stores.  Find your nearest store using our store finder. Having a celebration of your own at home?  We have some delightful recipes that we think will work perfectly - regardless of how you plan on celebrating. How about a casual gathering with a decidedly Chicago-twist?  Try out this recipe for Classic Chicago-style Hot Dogs with Root Beer Floats. Leaning towards a luau?  Celebrate Obama's Hawaiian roots with a Fresh Pineapple Salsa or a Pineapple Ginger Chutney with Macadamia Nuts to accompany succulent and crisp Panko Crusted Pork Chops. And finally, what better way to top off the election season that lasted a lifetime than with an arugula-studded meal?! Start with a fresh and healthy Arugula Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash and then, as a main course, serve a rich and delicious dish like this Savory Fig and Goat Cheese Tart with Arugula. Certain to please Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, Green Partiers and anyone else you might invite! Happy eating and please do let us know what you plan on making come Tuesday!
