As someone of Celtic-Teutonic-Gallic background, I have noticed a distinct lack of activities in the Twin Cities specifically for Celtic-Teutonic-Gallic individuals. I'm a little worried about the closed-mindedness that this seems to represent.

Well, there's the St Patrick's Day parade in St Paul and the German House on Summit Ave.

But these are not specifically targeted to people who are of Celtic, Teutonic, and Gallic background.

Sure, it may help if you are one of the three only, but where are the events and activities for those who have this ethnicity?

Check out the Immigration History Centre's website for activities (IHRC : College of Liberal Arts : University of Minnesota). Many of those are directed at the East European community but there may be something you could attend. I think the cultural group you mention is pretty rare in the TC. Otherwise, why not try organising some yourself? Be the instigator, not the follower!

I'm LOL here myself as I read this!

Thanks for the laugh, SlyFrog; now I have to go wipe the milk off my monitor and keyboard!

I've been looking for some Celtic-Gallic/semi-Scandinavian activities myself!

Got it. You're not asking for much, are you?

I was going to suggest McDivot's bar and restaurant in Historic Rosemount, the community was settled by Irish Immigrants--is that close enough?

Oh sure, it gets the Celtic, but the Teutonic-Gallic portion of me feels isolated and shunned. I bet they just rub their "pure" Celticness in your face there.

Have you seen any problems there with respect to Irish women who walk in with Celtic-Teutonic-Gallic men? Do they get dirty looks from the locals?
