Kilts Night at Doolin's Irish Pub + December Ceilidh at Scottish Cultural Centre.
Every 1st Thursday of each month, I usually meet with my kilted friends at Doolin's Irish Pub at Granville and Nelson St in Vancouver. Free Music starts at 9pm with Halifax Wharf Rats – if there isn't a hockey game on. It's always lots of fun, and a great way to meet people.
Big Secret: Wear a Kilt and ask for a free pint of Guiness Beer.
Another monthly cultural event happens on Saturday. It's the December Ceilidh at the Scottish Cultural Centre.
I like Scottish Country Dancing – I just wish I could get out to it more often.
After attending the Homecoming Scotland ceilidh here in Edinburgh at The Hub. I am ready to go for another one. It's really easy to do, as the callers give a demonstration and tell people what to do. eg. turn left, grab the right hand, etc etc.
Here's a full message from Ron MacLeod
