February 1. The Burns supper, also called Robbie Burns Day or Burns Night, is an annual Scottish tradition that celebrates the life and art of the legendary poet Robert Burns. Thanks to the Rhinecliff Hotel, which this month hosts its own festive Burns event for the fifth straight year, it's becoming a much-anticipated tradition in our area. Besides the recitation of Burns's poetry, a traditional dinner with the entrance of the haggis, storytelling, songs, and whisky toasts, the bill promises bagpiper Jeremy Freeman and swordsman Neil Roberts. Burns, baby, Burns! (Elaine Rachlin sings for jazz brunch February 17.) 6:30pm. $35.95, $25.95 (plus tax and gratuity). Rhinecliff.
