#NipClub celebrates Scottish Burns Night in SCOTLAND Jan. 26th, 2017

This week I bought some land in Scotland for our newest #NipClub location.  To be precise, I bought the Eilean Donan castle and grounds, and we built a location that we'll use over the next few weeks for our official pawties. INCLUDING a 24 hour pawty on Feb. 4th/5th. But this week, we'll have a Burns Night Pawty and Feast.  


#Nipclub Celebrates Scottish Burns Night




Join us Thursday January 26th as we celebrate Burns Night!

Don't forget to help out our new charity Scotland Shar Pei Rescue


Burns Night, is the annual celebration that commemorates the life of the bard (poet) Robert Burns, as well as Burns' contribution to Scottish culture.  It is typically celebrated in Scotland as well as places the UK and the rest of the world on or around January 25, the date of his birth in 1759. 


The first Burns Night supper was held at Burns Cottage by Robert Burns' friends on 21 July 1801, the fifth anniversary of his death.  They have occurred regularly ever since.  The Supper may be formal or informal.  Since this is Nipclub after all, we'll be going the more informal route.

The evening traditionally begins with The Selkirk Grace, a well-known thanks said before meals, using the Scots language.  


The Supper includes haggis (a traditional peasant’s meal of sheep’s heart, lungs and liver mixed with oatmeal, onions and seasonings, and then cooked inside the animal’s stomach)"neeps and tatties" (swede, yellow turnip or rutabaga and potatoes, boiled and mashed separately). Mashed together, "neeps and tatties" is also known as "clapshot". And of course, a "dram" (a glass of Scotch whisky).  I'm guessing most of us will have had a wee bit more than a dram before trying the haggis).


In formal settings or where a set of bagpipes is at hand, the haggis is brought in with much ceremony and pipe music.  Ok, we all know #Niplclub is not formal, but after a few pre-dinner rounds and toasts, if bagpipesdo show up, someone will try their hand/paw/wing at playing.  Then we really will need all that Scotch to believe that they are playing well.

After tribute is paid to the centerpiece of the meal with the "Address to the Haggis" and "Toast to the Haggis"  guests are ready to dig into the meal.

Dessert  may include Cranachan (a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal) or Tipsy Laird (whisky trifle) followed by oatcakes and cheese.  I'm guessing that by the end of the night, more than the Laird will be tipsy. 

The evening continues with recitation of Burns' poetry, toasts and singing of his best known work, Auld Lang Syne.

80's Night at #NipClub January 19th, 2017

Please make sure to check out the major announcement at the bottom of this weeks blog!! You won't want to miss this!!

For those of us old enough to remember the 1980's the vast majority of us look back fondly on a great time in our history. We were on the dawn of great technological breakthroughs, several new types of music were gaining a foothold (hair metal, new wave, techno rock, even early rap). America had elected a "tough as nails" President who'd go on to end the cold war and cement our place as a world power. The American car manufacturing industry....well, let's not talk about that MOL... and the movies! Oh the great 80s movies, that still stand the test of time today. What a time!!!! 

Anyway, this week at #NipClub we're bringing back the 80s for a night. Dress in your favorite 80s style. Be a "hair metal maniac" or a big haired New Waver. Dress as your favorite 80s movie or TV star. Or just show up and pawty. It's gonna be fun!!! If you need that "special look" ask @RealFakeGator of #NipClub Outfitters and he'll set you up!!!

And then one day, in the early 80s, something WORLD CHANGING happened....the REAL MTV  (not the music free garbage channel we have now)  started mixing MUSIC with GREAT VIDEO. This was the first video ever shown:



And the world was never the same again!!! 




The US car industry was all but dead in the early 80s. And Chryslet's K-Car was the
saviour that our domestic industry needed to compete with the Japanese Import
economy cars. They were "interesting" little cars. That being said, @TheNascarKitty
still has the 1981  Dodge Aries K-Car his human learned on. BECAUSE not only
can he NOT sell...he can't even seem to give it away. MOL

Let's get SILLY Jan. 12, 2017

Everybody LOVES to read the "I Can Has Cheezburger?"  books, and look at funny animal pictures on Facebook and Instagram.  Face it, we all spend a great amount of time trying to amuse ourselves and others.


So this week at #NipClub let's share our funniest pictures with each other. Whether it's a "Meme" or a funny picture of you doing something goofy, or a fun cartoon or drawing, we can all share with each other. Of course since #NipCLub has some real characters, there are a lot of photos of past hijinx to share too. 

If you want a funny avatar, but can't make one yourself, just send your idea to @RealFakeGator and his staff at #NipClub Outfitters and we'll be glad to help. There is a Meme Generator or Icanhascheezburger site on the internet. Also meme generator apps for phones too.

Of course, as usual, your own natural fur is ALWAYS welcome at #NipClub too! You can just come and share a laugh or three, and enjoy our great funny noms and top shelf silly drinks and dance to the best "funny" tunes out there while our DJs spin whatever their goofy little hearts desire.

While it's not "hilarious" it is definately amusing how many times
that @TheNascarKitty has "passed out" after hearing what @DoggyMolly and
@Lucky_GSD have pulled off  each week.
