A Wee Bit of Scotland (and Boobs) in Baltimore

by Cyndi Paxton Johnson

Do you hanker for all things Scottish? Then get thee to the Tilted Kilt, a new Scottish Pub/Restaurant/Sports Bar in the Avenue at White Marsh off of Route 95 in north Baltimore. The only one in Maryland and Delaware - this playful pub was packed full of happy customers on a cold Friday afternoon.

And really, what's not to like? The food is tasty, the beer is dark and flavorful (although they offer bland American beer for you Yanks), the music is loud, the sports centers are plentiful, and the girls are.....welll - see for yourself! Whoever dreamed up this take on the traditional Scottish kilt must be commended - a plaid push up bra with a stretchy micro kilt - and white knee socks! Better yet, the waitresses were pretty, fit and personable. They thought nothing of sitting down to chat for a moment - or pose for pictures!

Apparently attractive girls are referred to as "kilt tilters" because....well....use your imagination. Hence, the name of the Pub and the costume. Very cute.

While the majority of the crowd were men, there were several tables of middle-aged women enjoying the Shepherd's Pie and Fish & Chips. My mom and I had a fantastic time. The atmosphere was friendly and upbeat - and the beer selection was quite excellent - even on tap!

The dessert menu looked appealing, too - but we restrained ourselves. (and someone had over-indulged in the Shepherd's Pie and was feeling a bit.....uncomfortable.  I'm better now - thanks!)
