Annapolis on the Elliðaá, or Reykjavik on the Potomac
We're in the middle of Annapolis Restaurant Week.
One participating restaurant, Yellowfin, is going a little Icelandic.
Beginning tomorrow, and continuing through Sunday, Yellowfin will welcome Victor Viktor örn andrésson, head chef at the Reykjavik-area Blue Lagoon's Lava Restaurant, who will be presenting a special Icelandic menu. On the special menu -- Arctic fox and lava. Nope, I made that up. The menu features lots of Arctic char and Skyr.
The Yellowfin collaboration is part of "A Taste of Iceland," a four-day promotional event presented by Iceland Naturally, a partnership that includes Icelandic USA Inc., Icelandair, 66 North, the Blue Lagoon, Reyka Vodka and the City of Reykjavik, among others.
Over in D.C., another Icelandic chef will be guesting at DC Coast restaurant.
And closer to home -- a free screening tomorrow night at the Charles Theater of the Icelandic film Mr. Bjarnfredarson. That's at 7 p.m. And on Saturday at 10 p.m., The Windup Space will host the Icelandic band For a Minor Reflection
Patrons to any of these events can enter a sweepstakes to win a three-night trip to Reykjavik. Second prize is five nights in Reykjavik. Again, kidding.
