Robert Burns Night at The Cascade Room, January 25
Cue the bagpipes! On Thursday, January 25, for the ninth year, The Cascade Room will host a lively and delicious celebration on Robert Burns Night in honour of Scottish poet Robert Burns. The evening will feature bagpipes, whisky, haggis and other delicacies from the kitchen, including decadent deep-fried Mars Bars.
Doors open at 4 pm on January 25. This year, the Robert Burns Night celebration will include TWO ‘Piping of the Haggis’ events, at 5:30 pm and 8 pm, which will see local bagpiper Matt Dolan pipe in the haggis, with Dougie Stewart addressing the haggis. A fiddle performance from Colourstrings Conservatory of Music, along with music from Crash World, will round out the entertainment.
Chef Tim Evans has crafted a special three-course dinner menu for the Robert Burns Night party: Starter – Cock-a-Leekie Soup; Main – Traditional Haggis with ‘Neeps an’ Tatties; and for dessert — a Deep Fried Mars Bar with gelato. The menu is priced at $35 (a la carte available as well).
From the bar: Celtic Red Ale cask from Main Street Brewing, along with drink features and whisky cocktails from Glenlivet and Ballantine’s.
Guests are welcome on a first come, first served basis. For more information, http://www.thecascadecompany.c
