Nightlife Tomorrow Is Talk Like a Pirate Day

…a day on which you may choose to talk like a pirate. I do not fully understand this phenomenon, but the sailors with whom I am acquainted say that in Seattle, the best place to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day is the Jolly Roger Taproom in Ballard (where they’re said to serve extremely delicious mini oyster poorboys).
Some notes from a friend who is actually excited about Talk Like a Pirate Day:
On this special day I recommend Angostura rum: It has a particularly smokey flavor, an acquired taste, not unlike the smell of sieged and burning frigates. Anti-pirates might choose Goslings, choice of the British Navy.
Note: Pirate hooks are available at corner store across from Walgreens on 15th! $2.99, a steal!
Here is a fairly amusing quiz that will determine your pirate name. Best question:
Buckle your swash often?
1. I am quite the buckler-of-swashes.
2. I have no need of swashes, buckled or un-.
3. That sounds dirty.
