Grant Ross, the Hotel’s General Manager and a native of Scotland, looks forward to hosting the event every year. “Our traditional Burns Supper is an authentic evening of revelry and debauchery,”
Burns Night is hosted around the time of the poet’s January birthday and follows a time-honored schedule of events. The evening will begin with a wine reception, followed by the Presentation of the Haggis, accompanied by the lively sounds of the bagpipe. Guests will enjoy numerous toasts – including Mr. Ross’s “Address to the Haggis,” a sarcastic “Toast to the Lassies" given by the men and a witty reply given by the women.
In addition to Haggis, the communal tables will be filled with neeps (turnips) and tatties (potatoes), smoked salmon, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, and sticky toffee pudding, cheese and biscuits for dessert. Wine, whiskey and port will also be served.
The Black Bass Hotel invites those interested in this boisterous, culturally-inspired Burns Night to join the celebration for one seating on Friday, January 25th from 6:30 to 10:30pm. Tickets are $115 per person; includes alcohol, tax and gratuity. Space is limited. Highland dress is optional - some Tartan essential.
