Lodge Vitruvian Robert Burns Night Tuesday 1/27/09

Lodge Vitruvian No. 767's January Quarterly Feast in Indianapolis is lining up to be one of our most memorable evenings each year. Tuesday, January 27th, we will meet for our brief Stated Meeting at 7:00PM at the Temple of Broad Ripple Lodge #643.

Following the meeting, we will adjourn to the Corner Wine Bar in Broad Ripple at approximately 8 PM where we will be celebrating the 250th birthday of Scotland's - and Freemasonry's - poet laureate, Robert Burns. Dinner will be the traditional Burns' Night fare of beef and tatties.

Our ladies are cheerfully invited to attend, as we will be making the traditional Toast to the Lassies (and, of course, receiving the Return Toast to the Laddies). Those wishing to join in the reading of the Bard of Scotland's prose need only bring along their favorite Burns poem. Bawdy songs and Scottish tales are joyously welcomed, as long as they are recounted in your most bilious Scots burr. The price of dinner is $25 per person. A cash bar will also be available.

Brethren with proper knees for the wearing of the kilt are welcome to do so for the evening. Otherwise, proper dress for Vitruvian members is tuxedo, and either tuxedo or business attire for visitors. Those unable to be with us are asked to remember your brethren, wherever you may be, at the stroke of 9:00 PM, when the clock forms the fourth part of a circle, and drink a toast to us, as we shall to you.

We need to notify the restaurant by noon this Friday 1/23/09 of our final head count, so please respond immediately to our secretary at secretary@vitruvian.org

Ours Burns night has been cited by its attendees as the most fun they've ever had at a Masonic function. Don't miss it!
