Ode to a (free) haggis! Celebrate Robert Burns Night

By From page A9 | January 17, 2014

Hoots, mon! Little Prague Bohemian Restaurant, 330 G St. in downtown Davis, invites you to celebrate Robert Burns Night on Saturday, Jan. 25, with an evening of music, poetry and traditional fare.

The restaurant will be offering traditional dishes with a Czech twist — like Scotch eggs, lamb curry, filet mignon with whisky sauce and baked salmon — as well as their full menu, accompanied by music and poetry.

From 6 to 8 p.m., local Celtic group Riggity Jig — David Riggs, fiddle; Jim Coats, mandolin; Josh Ray, guitar; Kyle Wallin, djembe; and Lee Riggs, penny whistle — will play in the dining room. The band will be joined by local bagpiper Erik Leiken, and Duncan McMartin reading classic Burns poems.

From 8 to 10 p.m., the festivities move into the bar, where Leiken will pipe in a haggis for all those brave enough to try this traditional Scottish dish.

Come for the Scotch whisky, stay for the haggis! “And we’ll tak a right guid-willie waught, For auld lang syne.” Kilts are encouraged, but not mandatory.
