Starting June 9, Jackson 20 will host a monthly Pig Party with a nod to its bronze pig statue Bessie, an icon representing the favorite animal of the restaurant's namesake, Andrew Jackson.
On the second Wednesday of every month from 5:30 p.m. to close, Chef Dennis Marron and his team will prepare a feast of slow-roasted whole pig with all the fixings, served in the restaurant's colonial style courtyard. The menu features Pulled Pork Shoulder, Mahogany Barbeque, East Carolina Barbeque, Ribs, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Smoked Corn, Corn Bread with Maple Butter, Green Bean Salad, Soft Rolls and Seasonal Pies. Guests can come early to enjoy an ice cold canned beer during the restaurant's newly launched "Eco-Hour," available daily from 3 to 7 p.m. and featuring a wide selection of canned beers and boxed wine. The Pig Party Barbeque is available for $35 (if reserved in advance) or $45 dollars at the door. Price does not include beverages, tax and gratuity. Call 703-842-2790 to make reservations.
