Saloon Celebrates the Scottish Bard Robert Burns’ Birthday With Whisky!
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Join Beverage Director, Manny Gonzales, as Saloon celebrates the legendary Scottish poet Robert Burns’ birthday this January with whiskeys and flavor-filled cuisine from Burns’ homeland.
During the evening in Saloon’s downstairs dining space, settle in for a commemorative evening honoring Scotland’s pioneering poet while sampling several courses of Scottish whisky, or as the Scots say “water of life!” Manny will introduce each one and assist in distinguishing the flavors and notes. Scottish flavors influence each dish from Saloon Chef Derek Clough, accompanying and pairing perfectly with each round of whisky.
O Whisky! soul o' plays and pranks!
Accept a bardie's gratfu' thanks!
When wanting thee, what tuneless cranks
Are my poor verses!
Thou comes-they rattle in their ranks,
At ither's a-s!
