It is 259 years after the birth of Scotland's beloved poet, Robert (Bobbi) Burns and those who enjoy a lively party with plenty of wit in poetry-reading, a wee bit of the dram and all the traditions of pipes, kilts, and Scottish dancers will enjoy this toast to the Immortal Memory. Traditional haggis warm reekin' rich with champit tatties and bashed neeps, cockaleekie soup made from the bones of our Thanksgiving turkeys (Scots are forever frugal!) and succulent poached salmon is on the menu for an elegant adults-only dinner.
A Burns Supper is nothing less than an almost ancient ritual practiced in the world-wide diaspora of Scots. Dress is traditionally black tie or kilts (they are rentable) but at least evening clothes with a touch of plaid. We invite all guests to recite or sing Burns poetry - the better part of the evening. Please click here to let our organizers know by Jan. 25 what poetry you wish to share so we can print a program. Cost is $45 per person and includes meal, entertainment and a sample of first-rate single malt Scotch as well as other beverages for non-drinkers. This year no need to bring your own brand, Scotch will be provided.
To avoid last minute payments, please reserve your seat(s) with payment by Jan. 25 at the link below. Select the total number you are registering from the drop-down menu, then list every person in your party to avoid duplication. After clicking on "Add to Cart" don't change the quantity from 1 as the total will already be figured based on your initial choice in the drop-down menu.
P.S. A very similar Burns Supper sponsored by the St. Andrews Society is scheduled for Feb. 3 with the same menu and dancers and comparable piper for $135 per person but without the talent of Grace members! Better hurry with your reservations at Grace.
