Equipped with kilts and bagpipes, Beirut's Scots turned out in high spirits to celebrate the 257th birthday of famed Scottish Poet Robert Burns Saturday night at the Phoenicia Hotel.Halfway through the whiskey sampling, the Phoenicia's Executive Chef Thomas Figovc entered the room and shouted "Haggis," proudly carrying the Scottish national dish.Haggis is central to Scottish culture and a key element in any Burns Night, so much so that the poet himself wrote an address to the haggis, which is said each year at his birthday.
