I usually wear a kilt about 2 or 3 times a month now, and always for Kilts Night, the first Thursday of each month.
past week I wore it on Wednesday for the Co-op radio interview, then
Thursday for the Battle of the Bards when I played Robbie Burns. Again on Sunday for the St.
Patrick's Day parade. Then tonight for St. Patrick's Day at the Billy
Bishop Legion. That's four times within a span of 6 days!
Every 1st Thursday of the month, you can find me
at Doolin's Irish Pub celebrating “Kilts Night.” Wear a kilt and
receive a free pint of Guinness.
Vancouver Sun wrote a story about Tartan Day coming up on April 5th,
and how it isn't grandly celebrated in Vancouver. New York City has a
huge celebration which they call Tartan Week. Last year we had a wee
celebration at Doolin's with a kilt fashion show and a scotch tasting
by Johnny Walker. Our Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team
participated in the kilt fashion show, and we ended up on the Kilts
Night poster for Doolin's.
