Virtual Robert Burns Supper
Jan 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

January 24, 2021 – Virtual Robert Burns Supper- 2:00 pm MST.

Join us for a virtual celebration of the Scottish poet Robert Burns on Facebook. There will be toasts, piping, poetry and haggis! If you are local, Uptown Pub is selling 2-ounce drams to go! To get us all drinking the same richness of peat and brininess, we’ll be selling Ardbeg An Oa vials to-go (2 ounces: i.e.: a hefty dram) for $8 each. The Ardbeg distillery on Islay is considered one of the peatiest producers of Scotch. It’s also a loamy, earthy type of peat that makes me feels like I’m standing on the island itself (especially after a few). It’s the closest distilled [email protected] that we can get at this time to where Robert Burns was born in Alloway.

We’ll also have numerous other bottles of whiskies available to-go as well. In the past, we’ve had hundreds to choose from, but 2020 put a wee hurting on our overall inventory. We’ll do our best to find you something to get in the proper spirit of things.

You can watch the Robert Burns Supper here:

The Grand Canyon is immense and yet intimate; it entices with subtle nuance.

“I’ll Take Credit for That”: A Mary Colter Presentation @ Virtual Screening Room Arizona
Jan 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Presented by Arizona Historical Society at The Pioneer Museum, Flagstaff AZ

Some people believe that celebrated architect and designer Mary Jane Colter was a fraud. Grand Canyon Guide Haley Johnson will present both sides of the controversy and then you will decide.

Some people believe that celebrated architect and designer Mary Jane Colter (1869-1958) was a fraud. Colter is famous for being the architect and designer for many of the Santa Fe Railroad and Fred Harvey Company buildings including Hopi House in Grand Canyon National Park. Was Colter a resilient figure in a male-dominated profession? Grand Canyon Guide Haley Johnson will present both sides of the controversy and then you will decide. After Johnson’s online presentation, join the lively but respectful debate. Please leave your rotten tomatoes at the door—we will just be presenting the facts!

Free event but registration is required.
