Robert Burns (Alexander Naysmyth 1758-1840)
Robert Burns (1759-1796), Scotland's Bard, was born on the 25th of January and every year lovers of Burns, Scotland, the Scots language and Romantic poetry celebrate his birthday with traditional dinners and music - there are at least three in Rhode Island. Here's one: The Robert Burns Anniversary Committee of Rhode Island is having its 50th annual celebration on Saturday, February 2 at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet (60 Rhodes Place, Cranston). There's a cocktail hour at 5:30 (cash bar) followed by prime rib, haggis and dessert (vegetarian option also), Scottish country music and highland pipes.

Tickets are $50 if still available. Call Robin Tremblay to see: 401-434-0386 or email
