AGAINN Celebrates the "Address to a Haggis" with a traditional scottish menu, bagpipers, and whisky! Regarded as Scotland’s official poet and lyricist of the famous "Address to a Haggis", AGAINN will commemorate Robert Burns’ 251st birthday with a traditional ceremony. The reception is $85 per person (exclusive of tax and gratuity), and begins with bagpipes courtesy of Michael Scott. A traditional, three-course menu follows with signature dishes including Cock-A-Leekie Soup followed by Haggis served with Neeps and Tatties (Turnips and Mashed Potatoes) and AGAINN’s signature Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. Scotch pairings courtesy of Master of Whiskey John Heffernan from Diageo will also be available for toasting throughout the evening. Limited seating is available and reservations are required. In the 18th century, Haggis was a popular dish for the poor made from leftover parts of a sheep, which are mixed with spices and stuffed into a casing that is boiled in broth for approximately three hours. Today, haggis is served with Burns supper the week of January 25th, when Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns is commemorated. Haggis can also be found in fast-food establishments across Scotland.
