Avast! And I mean really a-freakin'-vast here!
On Saturday the 28th (this Saturday), people in the MD -DE- VA area are encouraged to come out and join your old friend Cap'n Jewbeard for the 3rd annual Fell's Point (Baltimore) Pyrate Invasion!
What is it? Basically this:
From 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM: Pirate-themed family-friendly fun, carnival-style atmosphere, games, song, exhibitions in the streets of the historica Fell's Point neighborhood in Baltimore (which hosted its own share of pirates back in the day). The Point is also Baltimore's BEST drinking district.
Also, for those of us unencumbered by children, or with patient and loving spouses, the drinking begins at 11:00 AM Promptly. (Well, that's Prompt... but on Pirate Time.)
From 9:00 PM to whenever the bars close/the last pirate loses consciousness: Roughly 300-500 people dressed as pirates (or pirates on the inside, civilians on the outside) roam the streets of Fell's Point, drinking and cursing and perhaps brawling with some ninjas, who I'm also bringing along.
My plan is to drink continuously for at least 16 hours, but you are under no obligation to do so. However, if you are in the area, I'd love for you to come out and join us for a while, whether during the day or in the even-tide. Just look for me and mine - my crew will be congregated under a giant Cap'n Jewbeard flag. You know my logo by now.
If you wish to join us, you don't have to make any special arrangements - unless you want to stay over in Fell's (which we're doing) - but I'd like to know to look out for you and say "hey", if you want to let me know you're coming.
Here's the official link- see you there!
Also- there will be women of a busty and lusty nature. I assure ye this.
-Edit- ALSO. The event is co-sponsored by Clipper City brewing, Baltimore's finest brewery. They will be all over this like scurvy on a thrice-cursed Spaniard. Drink up, me hearties. But don't heave on the wenches.
