Celebrate all things Scottish!

The UClub's Burns Supper has become a warm and bright tradition, giving us all
something to look forward to during the dark winter months.
Whisky, haggis and poetry are on the bill of fare. We guarantee you will find old
friends and new; tartans and bagpipes; songs and stories.

The evening will feature cocktails, a bagpipe procession, the

presentation of the haggis, and a special dinner menu. We will pass the
Cup of Kindness and share lots of laughter.
The event is black tie (optional), and dress tends to be semi-formal, with ladies in
evening attire and gentlemen in suits, tuxedos or traditional kilts.
This year’s event will be hosted by UClub member Duncan C. Hunter, who was
born in Scotland and studied theology at the University of Glasgow.
Tickets are $65 per person. Seating is limited and reservations are required by
Monday, January 21.
