  • Robert Burns

"Some hae meat an canna eat, / And some wad eat that want it; / But we hae meat, and we can eat, / And sae the Lord be thankit." —Robert Burns

Every year, come midwinter, the fair folk of the Rhinecliff Hotel join literary salons around the world in honoring the life and legacy of the Bard of Ayrshire with a supper. The annual feast offers a sampling of Scotland's best with poetry recitations, storytelling, song, and traditional dishes like cock-a-leekie soup, "neeps and tatties," and lemon curd shortbread. The whisky will flow as the piper plays in the haggis, Jonathan Kruk tells stories of ol' Rabbie, and guests roast and toast each other in a witty battle of the sexes. The bacchanal concludes with a group singing of Burns's best-known work, "Auld Lang Syne." Reserve ahead to secure your place at the table, and don't forget to bring your favorite Burns works to share. $42.95 per person, $32.95 bar seating. February 2, 6:30–9:30pm. (845) 876-0590.
