National Tartan Day Today, and Session Day Tomorrow
It's National Tartan Day--not that you really noticed, even if you're a Scot.
The Scots have yet to coalesce on a single, unifying holiday with which to express their Scottish identity as the Irish so famously have with St. Patrick's Day. Some celebrate Robert Burns' birthday in the middle of winter; some just go to the nearest Scottish or Celtic festival, whenever that is. For the religious, there's the day for the patron saint of Scotland, but that's November 30th, easily overshadowed by America's Thanksgiving.
And a gentle reminder, Session Beer Day is being observed tomorrow, April 7th. Two locally participating venues are Liam Flynn's (Oliver's Blonde and Heavy Seas Session Pale Ale on cask) and The Pratt Street Ale House will be selling their three session ales (Blonde Ale 4.3%, Dark Horse
Mild 4% & Bishop's Breakfast 4.4%) for $3/pint on the day.
It's also Good Friday in the Christian church, and I hear a different religion is converging on a diamond-shaped temple of a different sort downtown today......
