Crown & Anchor locations hosting Boxing Day dinner


We have boxing nights -- or, more accurately, fight nights -- in Las Vegas, but they have Boxing Day in England. That's the day after Christmas, originally when the staff was sent off with boxes of food but now a time for extended family to get together.

In honor of the holiday, a Boxing Day dinner will be served beginning at noon Saturday at The Crown & Anchor Pub, 1350 E. Tropicana Ave., and The Little Crown & Anchor, 4755 Spring Mountain Road. The dinner of roast pork with apple chutney, sage-onion-chestnut stuffing, roast potatoes, green beans almondine and Christmas pudding with brandy sauce will be $16.95 per person. ...

Layer Cake Wines will be featured during a dinner at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Spiedini at the J.W. Marriott, 221 N. Rampart Blvd. With an entree of pan-roasted breast of Sonoma duckling, the four-course dinner will be $68 per person. For reservations, call 869-8500. ...

Hours are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and from 10 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays. Call 607-0753. ...
