It’s the midweek, so we’re breaking out some instruments and having a jam. Join it, enjoy it, ignore if you like. Arm yourself with guitars and mandolins. Whathave you. It’s informal and fun. It pairs wonderfully with a pie and a pint, and all in all reminds us that the midweek is not the time to bury one’s head but to stay lively and happy. We hope to see you here!

Isles News First
* An English goth couple were banned from a bus for the man walking the woman on a leash. Let’s be honest: the bus ban’s a bit silly, but the leash is sillier.
* Is the the story of the Three Little Pigs too offensive for today’s children?
* Swimming fish generate the heat necessary to heat their own waters? Apparently; so finds a fish farm in Wales. Neat.

* On Friday, January 25, weâ€™ll celebrate Robert Burnsâ€™ legacy British Isles style. Join us for the Robert Burns Appreciation Night: live Celtic music, Burns songs and poems, a whisky toast, and an appropriately misplaced kickoff (8 PM). All are welcomed.
