    Kilt Night / AZ / Seamus McCafferys / August 1st!

    Greetings everyone. The Sonoran Scotsmen are looking to plan our next Kilt Night, and I thought we could use the light rail to our advantage this time. Most of us in the East Valley don't want to drive too far, especially after we've had some drinks, and I think the same goes for most of our west side peeps. So, I figured we could compromise, have a big joint kilt night at Seamus McCaffery's in downtown Phoenix, and we can try and use the Light Rail to our advantage as well since there is a stop nearby to the pub.

    So, our plan is to get together on August 1st (no longer July 18th) at Seamus McCaffery's in downtown Phoenix. Seamus McCafferys is located at 18 W. Monroe.

    They have an awesome Scotch selection if you've never been there. Check out their menu online. It's very extensive.

    I figure the east side folks can meet at one of the Light Rail stops (to be determined which one) around 7:00pm, have everyone load into one of the rail cars, and safely take a trip downtown. Afterwards we all take the light rail safely back home. If there is a nearby stop on the west side, that'd be awesome, but I don't know where everyone lives.

    I don't know if there is a band or not playing on August 1st. I checked their website but it's not updated that far ahead.

    Please respond and let me know what you all think about this idea.

    Slainte!

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I don't think my wife and I are doing anything that night. I'll pencil it into the daytimer.

    That sounds great!

    Unfortunately, for me, we're going to be in Michigan on vacation. I like the idea, otherwise that would work for me. I hope that it is successful so we can have another go at it!

    I agree with Catdad & Spartan - sounds great!

    And I appreciate you selecting a more central location for us westsiders. Only trouble for me is I'll be DJing a birthday party in Tempe that night. Seamus does have the best single-malt selection in the Valley; which makes it all the harder to miss this. Hope it goes great & the Sonoran Scotsmen want to do it again, soon.

    I'll try and reschedule the date, then hopefully more people can make it. I'll post an updated date here soon.

    I'd really like to see a good size joint kilt event and if too many people are busy that night or out of town, then we should reschedule. I'll see if I can move it back.

    Does August 1st still work for everyone? Or is that too far away?

    Date is now August 1st

    Ok, it's official the new rescheduled date is going to be August 1st. Please mark your calendars and I'll see you all in a month. I'll bump this thread as we get closer to remind everyone.

    Moderators (if you happen to look at this thread) could you change the title of this thread to say August 1st instead of July 18th please?

    thanks!

    That works much better for me, also. See everyone then.

    Cool!

    Hello Gents,

    I'm new to the forum and have never been to a kilt night event.

    I work in the area, close to Seamus McCaffrey's, so I know where that is.

    I just hope that my kilt will arrive in time.. Ordered it 6 weeks ago, shipped out last week.

    Anyhow, looking forward to meeting all of you.

    John
