This is the 24th year that the IMCZ is celebrating the birthday of Scotland’s National poet, Robert Burns. We also welcome members of the ZIWC and their guests. It is a unique evening providing an opportunity to taste real Scottish atmosphere. The party will be held this year at the Wirtschaft Brandeberg near the Stierenmarkt. It is less than 200m from the S-Bahn station "Zug Schutzengel" and free parking is available.
The evening will feature traditional Scottish fare, including the rousing sound of bagpipes from our guest piper, extracts from the works of Robert Burns (one serious, the rest funny) from our line-up of international guest speakers, people dressed in kilts and liberal doses of Uisge'beah (whisky). The menu starts with the traditional "Cock a Leekie" (chicken) soup and the Scottish haggis, but a vegetarian menu and an another main dish are also available.
The apero starts at 18:30 and the party will conclude with the traditional rendering of "Auld Lang Syne" at midnight. For a whole evening of entertainment and a four-course dinner, with plenty of drams of the finest Scottish whisky, this evening is a “gie-away” for just CHF 75 for IMCZ or ZIWC members and their partners, CHF 85 for guests.
We ask that the dress of the evening be in keeping with the traditions of the occasion so a kilt or something similar (or a jacket, tie, etc. if you don’t have one) or, as Burns was a man of international outlook, your own national costume (or elements of it).
We need to have all participants registered by Saturday, 20 Jan. to plan the seating and give the restaurant ample notice. If you plan to attend, please register as soon as possible!
The IMCZ no-show policy applies for this event.
