Nicholson's Burns Night-2011
Nicholson’s will host their annual Burns Night Celebration on Monday, January 24, 2011. The evening will include the traditional toasting of the haggis at 7pm and live music by Bloody Tinth beginning at 8pm. Reservations are being accepted but not necessary.
Best known for his ‘Auld Lang Syne’, Robert Burns rose from humble beginnings to become Scotland’s most beloved poet. He wrote hundreds of poems during his lifetime, and his January birthday is cause for annual celebration in his homeland of Scotland and Scots worldwide.
The toast to the haggis will take place at 7pm. Haggis is the national dish of Scotland and was immortalized by the poet Robert Burns in his poem “Address to a Haggis” in the 18th century. The haggis is celebrated in Scotland and throughout the world on Burns Night every year and is firmly established as the focal point of any Robert Burns celebration.
The Bloody Tinth will perform live beginning at 8pm. They are an energetic young Celtic rock band with plenty of moxy and talent. This band covers all the standards while still sounding original and fresh. Guests are encouraged to arrive early because they bring and keep a crowd.
Chef Patrick Bresnahan has prepared a special “Burns Supper” menu that will be offered in addition to the regular menu for those wanting to try some traditional Burns Supper items.
You don’t need to be Scottish to join the celebration,” said Nick Sanders, owner of the Tavern Restaurant Group. “Burns Night at Nicholson’s has become a tradition for many Cincinnatians because the experience is unique and they have a lot of fun.”
Nicholson’s Tavern & Pub is located downtown across from the Aronoff Center at 625 Walnut. To make a reservation for Burns Night, call 513.564.9111.
