Kilt Night, Rabbie Burns News, and Scottish Resources

Oochie-mama! It’s cold out there. But it’s never too cold to kilt up, friends.

Tonight we’re holding our weekly Kilt Night and the Celtic session players–they’d be musicians–are expected. It’s a fantastic way to warm yourself on these deep-freeze winter days: a pasty, a pint or two, some brilliant music, and plenty of laughs. See you tonight!


Next week we celebrate the great Scotsman Robert Burns!

Friday, January 25, we’re celebrating Robert Burns’ legacy! And we’re doing it British Isles style. Join us for the Robert Burns Appreciation Night. Celebrate with Scottish revelry:

* Live Celtic music

* Burns songs and poems

* A whisky toast

* And an appropriately misplaced kickoff! 8 PM. See you then!
