Robbie Burns Night!
Peckish Pig invites you to our 1st annual Robbie Burns Night!
Sunday Jan 25th @ 5 pm at 623 w Howard Street, Evanston, Il 847-491-6778
Enjoy a traditional Burns celebration with pipers, dancers, and poets! $10 includes a sampler of Chef Debs haggis, tatties and neeps with homemade shortbread. Regular dinner will be available as well as flights of Scotch, all night long! Call for details and reservations - seating is limited!
Haggis = pudding of sheep's liver, lungs, and heart minced with onion, oatmeal, and mutton fat AND Tatties and Neeps = turnips and potato.
Who the heck is this guy? Well he wrote Auld Lang Syne. You know the sentimental song you sing on NYE? Before eating haggis you must first address it.
What better poet to celebrate than one you can drink to? According to robertburns.org experts are in short supply. To keep up with demand not every Burn party can be held Jan 25th. There's a Burn party circuit. If you aren't lucky enough to attend one on his true birthday choose Jan 29th since the first Burns supper was held that day in 1802
