J Kowboy Wine Bar in Downtown Temple will celebrate the arts Wednesday night and commemorate the birth of a legendary Scottish poet.

Discover Downtown Temple and the Central Texas School for the Performing Arts will host the first meeting of the Dead Poets’ Society at 8 PM, January 25. The public are invited and encouraged to head to 13 East Avenue B to share their poetry, prose, or spoken word art, or just sit back with a glass of wine and relax.

The open mic poetry reading falls on Burns Night, which commemorates the birth of Scottish poet Robert Burns. Daniel Bodhi Chapin, director of the Cen-Tex School for the Performing Arts, said Burns Night celebrations began shortly after the poet’s death in 1796, and continue to be held across the globe centuries later.

“Burns Night usually includes a traditional Scottish dish and recitals of the poet’s work,” Sherri Street, City of Temple Downtown Development Coordinator, said in a media release. “We encourage participants to not only bring their own work to recite, but also one of their favorite Robert Burns poems and we will bring a Scottish dessert for you to enjoy.”

That’s right: wine, art, and dessert!

Burns Night is one of several events organizers hope will increase awareness of the arts in Downtown Temple in 2017 and beyond. For more information, contact Sherri Street at (254) 298-5378 or sstreet@templetx.gov, or visit DiscoverTemple.com.
