East Coast Good Times at Doolin’s

Comments 36 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Back in 2009 I crossed something off my Truly Canadian Bucket ListI participated in a screech-in at Doolin’s for their first-ever East Coast Good Times dinner. This includes kissing a cod on the lips, a recitation, and a shot of screech. It’s as close to Newfoundland as I’ll ever get without leaving the 604 area code and Doolin’s is once again presenting their famous East Coast Good Times at Doolin’s dinner at the end of this month.


It’s a bib-tying, finger-licking, codfish-kissing good time and tickets include a full lobster dinner, a pint of beer, and of course, a screech-in! The evening will also be hosted by the hilarious comedian Byron Bertram “Fan Page of Validaton“.
