Happy Robbie Burns Nicht

January 25 is the poet Burns’ birthday, and the traditional dinner of haggis accompanied by bagpipes is the proper observation.

Enthusiasts might recite this poem:

…and others of us will have a scotch, neat, and call it even.

    Yeah, the scotch is a wonderful thing (Glenmorangie aged in a port barrel, thx), but I actually like haggis, or at least what passes for haggis here in the US (it’s illegal to serve the ‘lights’ here).

    I’ve been drinking rum and eating shrimp I’m afraid, but I did listen to bagpipe music today

    Haggis in Scotland is wonderful. Served with Neeps and Tatties (Turnips and Potatoes) and followed by a fine Single Malt Scotch. Heaven! If you are ever in Edinburgh go to the Castle Arms. Just down from the Castle and Highly recommended.
