Today is our favorite Thursday of the month, as it’s the first Thursday, which can only mean one thing…Single Malt Scotch Tasting!! This month is especially fun as it is the “People’s Choice Month” where those on our single malt scotch emailing list get to choose their favorites from the previous year’s roster. Those lucky enough to secure a seat tonight will join Dennis, Eileen, and Bill in tasting Highland Park 18yr, Laphroaig 18yr, Laphroaig Cairdeas 200th Anniversary, and Caol Ila 9 yr Cask Strength. Ohh, you lucky people, you!
For those envious readers at home, never fret! We have spots open for our future tastings.

Burns Night is annually celebrated in Scotland on or around January 25. It commemorates the life of the bard (poet) Robert Burns, who was born on January 25, 1759. The day also celebrates Burns’ contribution to Scottish culture. Burns’ best known work is “Auld Lang Syne”.
We are celebrating a bit early – with full Haggis meal available. There will be readings and bag piping and drinking of scotch! Festivities begin at 7:30 with a blessing of the haggis for you to authentically enjoy.
We are filling up quickly, and sadly are no longer accepting reservations. We do hope you join us anyway, so stop in on Saturday evening and ask our friendly staff to assist you in finding a spot to sit (or stand)!
