THE LOS ANGELES chapter of the St. Andrew’s Society will host its 2017 Robert Burns Supper on Saturday, January 28th at the historic Sportsmen’s Lodge in North Hollywood.
The annual celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns (1759-1796), will be celebrated in the usual tradition established at the formation of the Society in 1930, starting the evening with the time-honoured procession of the Haggis, led by the society’s pipers and drums. Burns poem “Address to A Haggis” will follow and then the haggis will be served accompanied by the traditional sauce (whisky for the uninitiated). Then follows the meal, tri-tip, Scottish salmon, or vegetable lasagna with sautéed spinach and fresh marinara, dessert and coffee. Each table will be served a complimentary bottle of white and red wine.
Recitation of works by, about, and in the spirit of the Bard will occur throughout the evening as well as the traditional “Toast to the Immortal Memory”, “Toast to the Lasses” and the “Lasses Reply”.
Photo booth to capture those unique moments will be onsite.
Before the event attendees can enjoy a reception complete with a whisky tasting sponsored by Alexander Murray & Co., passed hors d’oeuvres, and full no-host bar. Dancing to Emmy Award winner Susan Winsberg and the Blackwaterside Tio, and entertainment will round out the evening.
