Work, Sex, Drink…in Downtown Northfield, MN

Robert_Burns_And_Highland_MaryNo, it’s not a new branding campaign, “Work, Sex, Drink” is the title of one documentary about Robert Burns, a renowned poet, Scotland’s Favorite Son, and a leader of the Romantic Movement.  For some people, he’s almost a cult-like figure.  For those people, there’s the Cow this Saturday evening: read his work, drink Scotch whiskey…and the third of Burns’ passions is up to you.
