As Election Day fever ramps up more and more each day, you might have gotten caught up in it. And, you might be asking yourself a few timely questions: How can I make my vote heard now (especially if I didn’t register for early voting)? How can I register my vote in more than one state? And how can I vote more than once?
The answer to all those questions, from a strictly legal perspective, is you can’t. However, if you want to cast your vote by choosing entrées at a few select restaurants in and around Washington, D.C., then it’s all good.
The two dishes obviously highlight the home and adopted states of both candidates, with the Hawaiian mahi-mahi for President Obama and the Massachusetts culinary staple, cod, for Governor Romney. You will also be able to vote on the Legal Sea Foods Facebook page - at least for your favorite dish.
POTUS Dog: The Chicago-style all-beef dog is topped with yellow mustard, onion, tomato, pickled peppers, sweet-pickle relish and a dash of celery salt.
Mitt-chigan Dog: The Michigan-style dog is steamed and covered with “Michigan Sauce” (a tomato-based chili sauce), plus chopped white onion and a drizzle of mustard.
