Whisky, haggis and poetry are on the bill of fare for the UClub's 8th Annual Burns Supper. The evening will feature cocktails, a bagpipe procession, the presentation of the haggis, and a special dinner menu. 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.
We guarantee you will find old friends and new; tartans and bagpipes; songs and stories. We'll also have the celebrated haggis, poetry (Scottish accent optional), whisky, the Cup of Kindness, and lots of laughter.
The haggis will be "piped in" by Jack O'Connell, a UAlbany junior.
Guest speaker Phil Bayly will give a talk entitled, "How the Scots Invented the Modern World."
And there will be a live Address to a Haggis, preceding consumption of the haggis - specially-sourced.
The event will be hosted by UClub member Duncan C. Hunter, L.Th., M.Ed, who was born in Scotland and studied theology at the University of Glasgow.
Tickets are $65 per person, or $120 for a couple. Seating is limited and reservations are required by Monday, January 21. Click here or call the University Club at 518-463-1151 to reserve your seat.
