Is everyone aware the cafe is mentioned on Wikipedia in an article about men's skirts?

I was not aware of that, and thanks for pointing it out. The mention isn't bad, either.

I'm glad that the topic has gained some ground on Wikipedia. For years it'd pop up only to get deleted by the administrative staff on the grounds of "point-ov-view pushing" or "original research". I'm happy that they've cooled down a bit. On "original research", it has to start somewhere!

Nice to see a reference to contra dance. I always wear a skirt to contras for the reasons mentioned - ventilation and the swirly effect. Plus its more fun than trousers :D

Okay.... which one of us here wrote that... ?

Last time I checked that article, there was no mention.
