Robert Burns Supper, 2014

Saturday, January 25th, we will be celebrating the birthday of Scottish poet Robert Burns, with music and poetry and even traditional treats like haggis!  Please join us from 6-8 in the main dining room of Little Prague, and then from 8-10 when we move to the bar for a bit more of a rolicksome time.  We'll be joined by our MC/declaimer of poetry for the night, Duncan McMartin, who is standing in for our customary DS (Designated Scotsman), Tom McKeith. Tommy is in poor health this year, and we hope you will join us praying for his speedy recovery. Joining the band and piping in the haggis, not for the weak of  heart, stomach, or lungs, will be highly accomplished local bagpiper Erik Leiken. And even if you are weak of heart, stomach, or lungs, you should try a good helping of the night's haggis, as it contains all three along with a good helping of oatmeal and several other items we don't really have a word for in English.

The folks at Little Prague always have some special menu items just for this event, as well as a grand assortment of whiskies to try, as well as many other liquid refreshments. Reservations are strongly encouraged if you want to join us in the dining room.  330 G Street, (530) 756-1107.

"But pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flower, its bloom is shed;
Or, like the snow-fall in the river,
A moment white, then melts forever.”
― Robert BurnsTam O'Shanter
