Cantab DC Burns Night Dinner
  Rabbie Burns  
Celebrate this Traditional Salute to Scottish Heritage with an Address to the Haggis!

Do you remember those cold January nights in Cambridge? Perhaps you also remember an overly keen Scottish student trying to drag you out of your cozy room to a night of poetry and light-hearted banter? Well, it's about to happen again!

For the sixth consecutive year, Cantab DC will be celebrating Burns Night in our own unique and highly popular way! Join dozens of your fellow alumn in a light-hearted evening that celebrates the life and poetry of the Bard of Scotland. There will be British food, original and auld poetry, great conversation and a Haggis!

The evening will take place at Elephant and Castle Pub on 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (n.b. there are two E&C locations in Washington so please be sure to show up to the right one). We will start the evening with a cocktail reception from 6:30-7:30 before we sit for the meal and festivities; we will have a barman on hand for a cash bar. Please register at the event link below; the fee covers a starter salad, a selection of British dishes to be offered for the main, a taste of Haggis & a Scotch toast, Highland Bread Pudding for desert, and coffee/tea. Ticket prices will rise as we get closer to the date of the event. Please note that we cannot offer refunds, tickets are non-transferable and all purchases are final. 

Take a look at last year's programme (2012 Nicht Programme), photos (2012 pictures), and videos, and see who is coming on Facebook this year. The attire is smart casual. Tartan and Kilts encouraged! We look forward to seeing you there.

Pictures and the Event Program are now posted.
