    Burns Night in Taos

    Saturday, January 23 at 6:30 PM, Taos will have another of its FREE Burns Night celebrations at the Michael McCormick Gallery. Pot luck( I'm doing scotch eggs, folks love them, and no one except us knows that they are not traditional), BYO. Expected attendance based upon previous years will be 60-80, plus you!.

    Scottish Country Dancing will start the festivities at 630PM. Taos has a long Scottish heritage starting before Kit Carson, and Taos really embraces this free form, participatory celebration. Do not expect the high brow traditional, but do be prepared for fun and all of the Burns Night basics, done with a paper plate in one hand and a plastic cup in the other. Be prepared to stand.

    If you even look like you know anything about Burns, you will be asked to participate, so come prepared with a couple of options. Kathy has not even started on my Kilt, so I will be wearing my new Balmoral. But PLEASE do come on up.

    The Michael McCormick Gallery is across from the Historic Taos Inn, 4 doors passed the Plaza, on the main drag through town. http://www.mccormickgallery.com/contact.html

    Contact us for further information and some lodging options:
