Tam O’Shanter Remembers Robert Burns: Jan 23 + 24. Make Reservations NOW!
Tam O’Shanter, a member of the Lawry’s family of restaurants and one of the longest standing restaurants in Los Angeles, is hosting its annual fun-filled celebration of Robert Burns with two seatings each on
Tuesday, January 23 and Wednesday, January 24, 2018 (5:30 pm and 8:15 pm seating/event times).
The Tam’s celebration of the poet’s 259th birthday (he was born on January 25, 1759) will feature:
–over 40 varieties of single malt scotch on display and available for tasting,
–specially prepared Haggis,
–performances by authentic bagpipers, drummers, step dancers, and more.
Close to 1000 guests, many bedecked in plaid, come every year to The Tam to partake in this annual event, which always sells out and for which the restaurant received a special award from the city for carrying on such a wonderful tradition.
Burns introduced the character of Tam O’Shanter in a poem in 1790, and the term came to be associated with a large Scottish-style wool hat worn by men. Burns also is known throughout the world for writing the Scottish folk classic, Auld Lang Syne.
Dr. Neil MacLeod hosts the event at The Tam and has been doing so for more than 35 years. During the celebration, the Haggis is served using a sword to cut the meat and guests drink out of goblets. There will be a playful take on Burns’ poetry, as read by actress Koni McKurdy. Additionally, Chef Ivan Harrison, a Haggis aficionado, will be the celebrated cook for the evening. Chef Ivan started working at the Tam in 1958 and retired after 42 years of service.
“The Tam’s Robert Burns dinners are one of the best traditions in Los Angeles,” says John Lindquist, General Manager of Tam O’Shanter. “This wonderful event is about honoring and celebrating Scottish culture, good food, good drinks, and fun times with good friends.”
