Schlafly Burns Night

When we create an occasion, we do it with purpose. Robert Burns, the Scottish poet and ploughman most famous for his poem 'Auld Lang Syne', bears great significance as we look back and forward on our lives and his contributions.

The customs of this event include pipers piping Celtic music, soul-warming Scottish food, nostalgia, satire and a reading by our very own Tom Schlafly. Plaid kilts optional.

The Schlafly Tap Room - Downtown St. Louis
