We've already posted the news about the ESPN Zone at 1187 16th Street going dark, but within moments of that announcement, something else popped up. Namely, that a nice big chunk of that space has already been snapped up and will shortly be turned into another outlet of an Arizona-based national chain, the Tilted Kilt.
So what, pray tell, is the Tilted Kilt? It's an Irish Hooters, a Celtic pub-themed sports bar done in the style of a bad Britney Spears video, with young ladies belted up in schoolgirl kilts, knee socks and Hit Me Baby One More Time-style white button-down shirts tied off at the boob, carrying around trays of Irish car bombs, sliders and "Braveheart's" chopped salads.

Yeah, I know. But what are you gonna do, right? Platters of chicken wings, Irish nachos, cheap beer, sports on the telly and half-naked girls walking the floor? The place is gonna be huge.
