Tacos and Kilts in the same night

Do Mexicans wear kilts?  Do Scots eat tacos?

Every first Thursday is Kilts night at Doolin's Irish Pub.  Last week on Dec 4th, I started the evening at Burrito Bros. Taco Co. in Kitsilano.  How authentic is Burrito Bros.?  Well, they speak Spanish when they place the orders to the cook. 

My girlfriend likes it on Thursday night because tacos are $2 and Sol beer is $3.50 for “Locals Night.”  Last night wasn't Thursday, but we ended up there for dinner again with friends Julie, Marion and Craig, from the Gung Haggis dragon boat team.

Todd has a $2 hard taco with his Sol beer.  No sombero wearing for this Chinos-Canadian.

Two kilted lads + two lassies.  Todd wears the ancient Fraser hunting tartan while Derrick wears a black utilikilt.  Lee and Carol are first time attendees, and I put them in the modern Fraser hunting tartans that the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team wears.  Lee is of Scottish ancestry, and she paddled with our team for the Vancouver Taiwanese dragon boat race.  Carol is Irish-Ukranian-Canadian and LOVED my Guinness with a shot of expresso vodka.

The Halifax Wharf Rats play sets starting at 9pm. They always play a lively mix of celtic tinged traditionals, Canadiana and folk-rock.  I LOVE their celtic version of “I Was Made for Loving You” – originally a hit by KISS.  Dawn wears a mini-kilt with a sassy lace hem.  Dawn paddled on the dragon boat team in 2004 when we raced in the Vancouver Taiwanese dragon boat race.
