The LA Scotch Club will be hosting its 7th infamous Burns Night Supper on Saturday, Jan 23rd at the Hollywood Castle, sponsored by Pernod Ricard and featuring Glenlivet, Scapa, and Aberlour. This is a very special event with gorgeous views in the Hollywood Hills thanks to a generous donation from our sponsor.
Robbie Burns is Scotland’s most famous poet, who wrote Auld Lang Syne and other things that tended to involve food and scotch. In keeping with tradition, we’ll have supper, scotch, and poetry while enjoying the views of the city down below. As a special feature this year bartenders will serve up scotch cocktails, a secluded smoking patio views of the Hollywood sign will be available as will a chance to peruse and enjoy the castle within.
A portion of the proceeds will go as charity to the Museum of the American Cocktail and National Food and Beverage Foundation.
After the supper and scotch we’ll continue our traditional Poetry contest, with Midge Burthe’s title on the line. And since there is a dungeon… a special surprise for the worst poem of the evening.
2016 Poetry Winner: Midge Berthe
