Burns Nicht Dinner, January 25
When the peddler people leave the streets,
And thirsty neighbours, neighbours meet;
As market days are wearing late,
And folk begin to take the road home,
While we sit boozing strong ale,
And getting drunk and very happy,
We don’t think of the long Scots miles,
The marshes, waters, steps and stiles,
That lie between us and our home,
Where sits our sulky, sullen dame,
Gathering her brows like a gathering storm,
Nursing her wrath, to keep it warm.
From “Tam o’ Shanter” by Robert Burns (Modern English translation)
Join us on Monday, January 25th at 5 p.m. when we recognize the life and works of celebrated Scottish poet Robert Burns at our Annual Burns Nicht Dinner!
Best known for writing the popular New Year’s anthem “Auld Lang Syne”, the acclaim of Robert Burns certainly reaches much further than that. Burns was a poet and lyricist whose countless works are credited as being a catalyst for the Romantic Period in literature during the 18th century. His literary voice that spoke of all things love, friendship, work and drink inspired movements in literature, society and politics. His influence is so long standing that not only is he still referred to as the Bard of Scotland, but he was also voted the “Greatest Scot” by the Scottish public in 2009.
To properly honor this literary genius on the day of his birth, we have planned an amazing evening filled with some of Robert Burns’ favorite things: delicious Scottish-inspired cuisine, the best of drink, fantastic entertainment and the finest of company. The centerpiece of this event is obviously the dinner, and it will consist of the following menu that will be meticulously prepared by our chef and kitchen:
As you can see, each course has been expertly paired with a beautiful libation to properly complement and accentuate your every bite.
