It's that time of year again, when the highlanders and lowlanders show love for their motherland's feile baeg -a.k.a. the contemporary kilt-kicking off a week of green-beer-fueled debauchery in honor of St. Patrick. On Sunday, the sixth-annual Sexiest Kilt Competition at Muldoon's offers contestants a chance to work their wiles on the audience and the female panel of judges, adding in a joke-or some bagpipe prowess, or delivering an impassioned description of just what it is about wearing a skirt, er, kilt that instills Celtic pride. Look out for last year's winners, Scott Well, a Newport Beach attorney with a great set of gams, and Eric Rigler, Hollywood's go-to guy for bagpipes. And if you're thinking of giving it a go, no, your girlfriend's plaid skirt from her naughty-schoolgirl phase doesn't cut it, mate.
