Dress code

Dress code, schmesh code... think tables covered in newspaper, bibs and claw crackers. This is a casual, fun get-together so don't worry about dressing in your best. Besides, we have a house band - Haggis, who will be playing some great Celtic music beginning at 9 pm - so you'll need to be comfortable.
