Burns is indeed alive and well
To the editor:
I can confirm at least the memory of Robbie Burns is alive and well on Bowen, at least at the Snug!
My wife Dorene and I were two of the full house who celebrated Robbie’s birthday at a spectacular event on Friday, Jan. 25, which was co-hosted by Paul Ricketts and the Bowen Beer and Wine Cellar as well as the good folks at the Snug.
The sampling and history of eight very fine single malt Scotches was very nicely complemented by the culinary excellence of William Hayes, who now quite likely may become more recognized and famous than his mother Joan and much loved father Piers “Blue” Hayes! As if the Scotch and incredible food was not good enough, the company was great as well. A great time was had by all the limit of which was not deterred by having to drive, after dinner so-to-speak, as the organizers arranged for a bus to get us all home. How civilized and responsible. We of course opted for an alternative ride and I thank Ron Strange for responding to Caroline Orr’s call at 10:30 p.m. to come and pick us up. I am pleased to advise he looked quite “natty” in his tartan pajamas.
Again, our thanks to everyone involved in such a wonderful evening. Please sign us up for the birthday party next year.
