2014 Christmas party

Robert Burns Supper

Robert BurnsOnce a year, a special event takes place around the world. It's been part of Scottish culture for over 200 years where men and women dress up formally to meet with descendents and lovers of Scotland, for a gastro-literary celebration of the life and works of the poet Robert Burns. It is an event that transcends time, geographical borders, political and religious beliefs, to bring people together in a traditional Scottish feast.

This year the event will be held on Saturday, January 24 at the Phoenix Country Club - 2901 N 7th Street in Phoenix - begining at 6 PM

Men are encouraged to wear kilts & jackets, trews, tuxedos, suits or blazer with a tartan tie, while women don evening dresses with tartan sashes or shawls, tartan skirts with blouse or sweater.

The evening's program includes:

  • Highest quality, traditional Scottish menu:
    • Cup of Cock-a-leekie Soup
    • Garden Green Salad with Walnuts, Cherry Tomatoes
      and Hazelnut Vinaigrette
    • Stout Steak Pie with Garlic Carrot Pea Conundrum
    • Mashed local source Organic Turnip
    • Haggis done "Old World Style"
    • Barley, Carrot, Turnip Medley
    • Served with rolls & butter
    • Sticky toffee pudding with a whiskey crème anglaise
  • The toast to, and proper service of the Haggis
  • Glenmorangie Single Malt whisky and Tasting
  • Imported fine Scottish beer
