A Pirate's Life for Me
Arrrr, blow me down - today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! So if ye landlubbers be looking fer ... Okay, wait. It's TALK Like a Pirate Day, not WRITE Like A Pirate Day, so I'm going to drop the accent. But if you're looking for places to tell your friends to "walk the plank!" or a chance to call that special someone "chumbucket" or "scurvy dog," here are a few suggestions.
Piratz Tavern seems like the natural harbor for wannabe pirates today, and they're hosting The Pyrates Royal, a costumed group of pirate reenactors who sing sea chanteys like "We're Here to Drink the Whiskey," "Drink England Dry" and "Being a Pirate" while playing fiddle, dulcimer and bodhran. Not surprisingly, the Pyrates got their start at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. They're just one of the attractions at tonight's party, which is hosted by the Pirates of the Drunken Ferret. Doors open at 6, and tickets are $15. More information and advance tickets can be found here.
It's "Yo ho ho and a Bacardi cocktail" at the Argonaut, where Talk Like a Pirate Day is celebrated with $3 rum drinks, Yuenglings and plates of wings, and $10 pitchers of Booty, the pirate-esque house beer. The staff at the nautical-themed tavern will be talking like they've just left the Jolly Roger, and there's a Bacardi promotion from 8 to 10.
Galway Bay, one of our favorite Irish pubs in Annapolis, welcomes the Ship's Company Chanteymen, a costumed group that specializes in songs from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. There's no cover charge, but reservations are suggested.
