Hudson Valley's 13th Annual Traditional Robbie Burns Supper/Celebration

Celebrate the life and art of the legendary poet Robert Burns. A much-anticipated tradition in the Hudson Valley. Featuring the recitation of Burns's poetry, a traditional dinner with the entrance of the haggis, storytelling, songs and whisky toasts. The Hudson House Distillery's chef will continue the tradition by preparing a menu that consists of traditional Scottish dishes like cock-a-leekie soup, “neeps and tatties” (turnips and potatoes mashed together) and lemon curd shortbread, but substitutes a Highland beef stew for what Burns called the “great chieftain o’ the puddin-race.” Plus samplings of Hudson House whiskies. This year, the ceremonies will include the requisite Parade or Piping-in of the Haggis, along with the traditional Selkirk Grace, the Toast of the Lassies and the Lassies’ Response for a bit of good-natured battle-of-the-sexes humor. Master piper Jeremy Freeman will play the bagpipes; storyteller Jonathan Kruk and other Special Guests will relate some incidents from the life of Burns; swordsman Neil Roberts will buckle some swash. Participants are encouraged to bring songs, poems and stories by, about and in the spirit of the Bard of Ayrshire. We will also announce the establishment of the Annual Robert Burns Scholarship Fund. And at the end, everybody joins in singing Auld Lang Syne, in a context where it makes a lot more sense than on New Year’s Eve. A full bar will be available with Kolsch and light lager available, Hudson House Distiller's own whiskeys Black Creek Bourbon+ Rye will be available for sale and tasting's, their shop will also be open. If you want to indulge freely in Highland spirits without falling off the mountainside on the way home, several local hotels offer special room rates or guests of Burns Night. Seating is limited.
