Where to Celebrate Burns Night in America

Burns Night, officially a tribute to Scotland's legendary poet Robert Burns, is an annual celebration of all things Scottish. All over the world, Scots and honorary Scots alike raise drams to the master wordsmith. In New York City, fans should make reservations at the city's most popular Scottish restaurant, St. Andrews on West 46th Street.

On January 28, several other Burns Night celebrations will take place around the country (even in Hawaii!). Here are just a few, courtesy of ScottishBanner.com...
