Burns Night 2016 At The HangOut Club

I hope you had your haggis for dinner tonight!  Yes it was Burns Night;  A time to celebrate that wonderful Scottish poet 'Rabbie' Burns, the famous 18th Century bard.  Auld Lang Syne is probably Robert Burn's most famous poem (song), but he is also known for "A Red, Red Rose"; "A Man's a Man for A' That"; "To a Louse"; "To a Mouse"; "The Battle of Sherramuir"; "Tam o' Shanter"; and "Ae Fond Kiss" and many more (list of poems from Telegraph article about Burns).  To mark the occasion there was a Burn's Night party at the HangOut Club!  Owner/dj Janis Short had some brilliant Scottish tunes and Scottish artists on the menu, and the clubbers proudly wore some colourful tartan outfits.  Bagpipes and kilts swung to the sound of the music and I promised not to shoot any pictures from the ground level in case the kilts showed too much 'leg' (thanks for the hint Slate!). It was a lovely night, and a smashing way to celebrate one of Scotland's finest!  Happy Burns Nght everyone!
