On Saturday, September 19th head down here to Boundary Bay Brewery and prepare to Talk Like A Pirate all day long! Why, you ask? Well…why not?! September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day and we’ve decided to join in on the festivites. This strange little holiday (with silliness being the very point) is celebrated across the globe and is gaining enough attention to have appeared as:
- A question in Trivial Pursuit
- An answer on Jeopardy
- A question on Hollywood Squares
- Two quotes on NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me
The event was featured as answers in a New York Times Crossword Puzzle, there are iphone apps honoring the day and the Sierra Club even got in on the action last year!
So, yes…we’re totally serious. We are going to be talking like pirates all day…and we expect you to, also.
Costumes are welcome and encouraged all day long and we’re having a Beer Garden Pirate Party with prizes awarded for best costume, best pirate joke and best pirate haiku (submit your jokes and/or haikus in the drop boxes in the foyer here at the brewery).
