LIKE St Patrick's Day, Burns Night is becoming one of those celebrations everyone likes to get in on, whether they've got Celtic blood in them or not. At Black Dog Ballroom on Wednesday 25 January, folk of all nations are invited to celebrate Robert Burns' birthday – and we've got 20 complimentary pairs of tickets for Heroes to giveaway.
The drink of the evening will, of course, be whisky. You'll be treated to a whisky tasting session, and there'll be whisky cocktail samples to sip. If you like, you can take part in a cocktail-making masterclass on the night.
Expect Scottish-style canapés too, some featuring haggis. Not sure what Burns would have made of that.
Black Dog Ballroom won Confidential's Bar of the Year 2011 on account of its ability to show anyone a good time, even on a Wednesday night, even during the bleakest month of the year. (We also like their food, music policy, and the general good vibes in the place.)
Black Dog Ballroom is underneath Affleck's Palace, in the Northern Quarter. The entrance is on the corner of Church Street and Tib Street.
The Burns Night party starts at 6.30pm on 25 January. We have 20 pairs of free tickets to giveaway to Heroes.
If you'd like to go, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Burns Night' as the email subject. Please state in the email if you would like to take part in the free cocktail-making masterclass. And please include your phone number in the email.
We'll email you by 20 January if you've got tickets.
