Burn's Night Celebration
7pm @chez riccardo's
What Robbie Burns said about my ancestor
Arnot, John (c. 1738-89)
'It is a damning circumstance in human life, that Prudence, insular & alone, without earthly virtue, will conduct a man to the most envied eminences in life, while having every other good quality & wanting that one, which at best is itself but a half virtue, will not save a man from the world's contempt, & real misery, perhaps perdition.'
Tonight on your plentiful table here will be 8 year old single malt whisky (Scottish water), Isla custard (divine) and of course the mainstay of the evening… (vegetarian) haggis!
