The Burns Supper was a Blast!

The Burns Supper was a Blast!

/wp-content/themes/champ/images/content/blog/2013/burns3.JPGWe were able to celebrate the great Scottish poet’s birthday again this year – and on the actual day of his birth, too. We had quite a few who were new to the proceedings, and their faces were a picture when Master Piper and emcee Eric Goodchild pulled his sgian dubh out of his sock and stabbed the haggis he had just been reciting an ode to.

The evening was the traditional one of pipes, songs, and verse, with the/wp-content/themes/champ/images/content/blog/2013/burns2.JPG toast to the lassies, and the lassies’ reply. Lots of tartan and sashes and kilts. Much toasting and cheering, especially when we had a power cut. Everybody seemed so charmed to be dining by candlelight with the violinist playing soft, plaintive airs that they all booed when the power came back on!

We serve 6-10 pm. Make your on-line reservations now, or call us at 413-772-3087!

Enjoy fabulous specials in addition to our winter menu, and as midnight nears join us for bubbly and chocolates as we raise a racket with squeakers and horns to keep harm away from 2014.

It’s a midweek night so rates are low with no minimums. So come on! Come and have a snuggle-up sleepover and join us for a late breakfast.
