The Sons of Norway are bringing Scandinavian cuisine to Boulder City at the 20th annual Lutefisk Dinner on January 27.

Lutefisk is codfish soaked in and then drained of lye, giving it a gelatinous texture. The dish will be served with melted butter or white sauce, roasted pork, boiled potatoes, peas and carrots, lefse, coffee and iced tea, and Norwegian and other cookies.

Aquavit, which is an alcoholic spirit made from potatoes, will be available at an open bar and packets of lefse, Norwegian flatbread, will be sold to take home.

The event will be held at the Boulder City Elks Lodge at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for kids 10 years old and younger.

No tickets will be sold at the door, so you must purchase tickets in advance.
