Next time you find yourself at Bogart's, you might notice that their menu looks a little different.

But not much different. Restaurant manager Larry Reynolds says it really hasn't changed. It just has more selections now — selections that will make vegetarians happy.

In the past, vegetarians could choose from a couple of pasta dishes and a list of salads at Bogart's. Now, they can eat veggie or bean burgers too. And there's the ALT (avocado, lettuce and tomato sandwich). A few appetizers, such as jalapeno poppers and vegetable quesadillas, have also been added to the menu. The additions aren't huge, but every bit helps out the vegetarian dining experience. For meat eaters, there are the new crab-cake and barbecue sandwiches.

Price ranges of the new items, Reynolds says, are pretty much the same as other menu items ($4.75-$12.95). See for yourself at 203 N. Lombardy St. Note: On Friday and Saturday nights the back room features a fine dining menu ($11-$16). Bogart's opens Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m.-2 a.m., Saturday from noon-2 a.m. and Sunday from 5 p.m.-2 a.m. For more information, call 353-9280.

If you haven't made plans for Friday, consider joining the Ettrick Historical Society for its Robert Burns night. To honor this Scottish poet known for the song "Auld Lang Syne" and other poems, the society will cook and serve a simple dinner of roast beef and vegetables. Enjoy trifle and shortcake for dessert. Afterward, listen to the poetry and songs of Burns performed by society members.

The event costs $7.50 and takes place from 6:30-9 p.m. If you're interested in attending, make your reservations before 7 p.m. on Jan. 22. Call 526-8367.
