Kilts Night gang celebrates with Doolin's chef Jorge Franco – a Guatemalan-Canadian who can wear a kilt!  Todd Wong, Debbie Poon, Jorge, Terry “Bear” Varga, Marion Poy and Tim Renaud (bassist for the band Halifax Wharfrats).

Kilts Night on Thursday was also Doolin's 6th Anniversary.  I arrived about 6pm, to hear Mark Downey singing U2 songs on his acoustic guitar.  Mark and I met for the Celtic Fest event “Battle of the Bards.”  He played Irish poet William Butler Yeats, and I played Scottish Poet Robert Burns.  Guess who won… Toddish McWong & Battle of the Bards at Celtic Fest

It was a fun evening with lots of entertainment. I had a great chat with Kathleen from The Celtic Connection newspaper.  She took a picture of me, and wants to do an interview about my upcoming Gung Haggis Fat Choy Dinner for 2009 – the 250th Anniversary of Robert Burns' birthday.

Our Kilts Night gang contains a number of our team paddlers from the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team. We really enjoy the celtic-tinged Canadiana music performed by the Halifax Wharf Rats led by Brian and Michelle, with Rick on drums and Tim on bass.
