Great Scot!

Little Prague Bohemian Restaurant, 330 G St. in downtown Davis, invites local residents to celebrate Robert Burns Night on Saturday, Jan. 21, with music, poetry and traditional fare.

The restaurant will offer traditional Scottish dishes with a Czech twist, like Scotch eggs, lamb curry, filet mignon with whisky sauce, and baked salmon, as well as its full menu.

And as the old bard said, “O, my luve is like a melodie, That’s sweetly play’d in tune.” From 6 to 8 p.m., local Celtic group Riggity Jig will play in the dining room. Then from 8 to 10 p.m., the band will be joined in the bar by renowned bagpiper Erik Leiken of Davis, and Glaswegian Tom McKeith reading classic Burns poems.

“Come for the Scotch whisky tasting, stay for the haggis!” a news release says. Scotch whisky tasting will be available in the dining room and bar. And haggis tasting is free for all those brave enough to try this traditional Scottish dish.

Kilts are encouraged, but not mandatory. There is a $5 cover charge in the bar; the fee can be redeemed for food or drink. No cover will be charged in the dining room.

For details or reservations, call (530) 756-1107.
