All are invited to celebrate the spirit of Scotland and birthday of legendary 18th-century Scottish poet and songwriter Robert Burns at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Davis Masonic Lodge, 1655 Da Vinci Court in South Davis.
Robert Burns Suppers have been part of Scottish culture for more than 200 years as a means of commemorating Scotland’s beloved bard. Burns is best remembered for his song, “Auld Lang Syne,” that is traditionally sung each New Year’s Eve.
Hosted by the Dixon Scottish Cultural Association, the supper starts with a 6 p.m. no-host cocktail reception, followed by a 7 p.m. ceremonial dinner.
The multi-course meal features a choice of grilled tri-tip beef or grilled chicken breast, as well as the traditional Scottish haggis. The supper will include live bagpiping and Scottish folk music, recitation of Burns’ poems, Scotch whisky toasts, raffle prizes, men in kilts and more.
Supper tickets are $40 per person, which may be purchased before Jan. 25 by calling 707-678-8814 or sending a check made payable to DSCA to Burns Supper, P.O. Box 561, Dixon, CA 95620. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
