Guinness. Above tartans are McDonald, Fraser Hunting, and

The Halifax Wharf Rats provide great musical entertainment every Thursday at Doolin's – photo Todd Wong
They play a mixture of celtic Maritme songs + great Canadiana songs
such as Bartlett's Privateers, Four Strong Winds, Stompin' Tom Connors'
The Hockey Song. There are also good old Celtic songs such as Tell My Ma too! And then they also play Wharf Ratted versions of U2's With or Without You, Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire, and Kiss' I Was Made For Loving You.
