The LA Scotch Club will be hosting its 8th infamous Burns Night Supper on Saturday, Jan 27th at GlenArden Club of Glendale. The city’s most (in)famous Burns event is back to its roots that were cruelly severed when our beloved Beckham Grille site became a hotel parking lot. After a trip to the Hollywood Castle and a year off in 2017 to recuperate, LA Scotch Club has teamed up with GlenArden Club in Glendale who have offered us their fancy ballroom.
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’re going to have a grand ol’ time with a lot of great scotch and dinner.
This year’s special guest is Bladnoch Whisky, presented by well known whisky ambassador/enabler Ed “Dirt” Adams. Ed is one of the most popular faces of scotch in America and he brings us the new Bladnoch lineup from a distillery that just couldn’t be shut down. It’s a rare treat that the scotch club gets to try so many bottles new to us.
We’ve ordered our Haggis from our traditional source in Oregon and will give it Robbie’s address, followed by Andy’s traditional fireside-less Plasteredpiece Theater poem. And of course Los Angeles’ proudest cultural classic, the Drunken Poetry Contest, will be held for the prize of a lovely bottle of scotch and a booby prize for the worst.
