Burns Night is open to Sassenachs

JIMENA Burns Night is to be celebrated at Oba Bar & More on Friday, January 27th (although Robert Burns's birthday is on the 25th, it being a Wednesday) from 8pm onwards. The haggis will be addressed at 8.30, we're told (and had to look it up, being utter, hopeless Sassenachs here, and were delighted with Wikipedia yet again). The meal includes Haggis, Neaps and Tatties, we're also told (pssst, wot's a neap?), and the announcement says that even Sassenachas are welcome (well, given that there are only about four true Scots in the village (right?) that's not surprising). (Note: with Jan's help, we started trying to explain the whole thing to locals in Spanish but gave up the task as impossible. Can anyone help?)
