Burns’ Night is, at the heart, a grand, world-wide annual wake for a Scotsman who may not have held a throne in his 37 years on earth, but who is enthroned in the heart of Scots wherever they may be. His fondness for topics large or small, held dear and important by common folk, produced poetry and songs that remain vibrant across the intervening 220 years since his death.
The first Burns’ Night Supper was held in late January 1802 as a memorial celebration among his friends. Our Burns’ Night, slated for Saturday, 21st of January 2017 @ 7:00pm (Social Hour starts @ 6:00pm) in our own American Highlands, is a cozy evening of conviviality, wonderful food and drink from the talented staff of the Alpenhof Lodge. We’ll pipe in a traditional haggis and enjoy the performance of Robert Burns’ poetry by friends old and new, as well as Burns’ music, Highland Dance, and other Scottish favorites shared by Teton & District Performing Arts.
Seating for this event is limited, and places will be firmly closed Noon, Friday the 20th; be sure to secure your seats as soon as possible! Simply make your menu selections below; a cart listing your selections will appear at the right-hand side of the menu options.
At our Burn’s Night celebration, you’ll enjoy a four-course banquet of Scottish delicacies specially selected for our gathering, including a traditionally-prepared Haggis, made in-house from local ingredients by the Alpenhof’s Ann Johnson. Choose your first course of either a decidedly warming broth of beef, barley and vegetables to keep the winter chill out; or a lively salad of mixed salad greens, grape tomatoes, grated carrot, balsamic vinaigrette. For your entrée, select either the tender Prime Rib, served with “bashed” neeps & tatties; or Pan-seared Salmon fillet served with a light cirtur-pomegrante beurre blanc sauce, Scottish potato cakes and roasted neeps. Finish the feast with Highland Cream Liqueur Crème Brule, a Rich and creamy whisky flavored crème brule.
