There will also be lots of Molson beer, too, for the Canadian Embassy's tailgate party Monday during US President Barack Obama's swearing-in ceremony and parade.
It's the second time the embassy - located at "centre ice," according to Ambassador Gary Doer, halfway between the White House and the Capitol - is having a tailgate party.
"You have to have Canadian comfort food on a cold day in Washington," Doer said. "We won't be cutting the crusts off of the sandwiches. It'll be full Canadian fare.
"It's our contribution to the health-care debate in the United States - poutine," he joked. "They're having debates about Big Gulp Cokes in New York, and we're having poutine."
In addition to the thousands of Hudson's Bay red Olympic mittens - they're being handed out to guests - that will be waving to Obama during the inaugural parade, there will also be five Mounties saluting him on the steps of the Embassy.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird will be there, too.
This is Doer's first tailgate. He was still premier of Manitoba when they last did it.
Just in case the ambassador gets too stressed out, there will be lots of Crown Royal on hand to calm his nerves.
"It's easier for us to get Crown Royal through a pipeline than oil."
The party runs from 11 a.m to 3:30 p.m. ET.
