great scot

My buddy Pat and I checked out the annual Scotsfest at the Queen Mary yesterday. It was a great day out, and I guess the lure of beer, whiskey, and sheep was too much for us to resist. Apparently the Queen Mary was built in Scotland - whether that was the reason for having the fest there or if it was just a tie used to rationalize it after the fact, its hard to know. We filled the time between bagpipers and sheepdog demonstrations (my favorite part, of course) and guys in kilts throwing strange big things with samples of beer and scotch and scotch pie. To be honest, I can't say you should add it to any of your 'must-do' lists (especially considering the admission price), but it wasn't a bad way to spend an afternoon on a nice day.
