By special request of a very special member, for our Summer Party we revisited last year’s Pirate Fest. Don’t worry, we won’t make a habit of it. We gathered a rowdy crowd of swashbucklers to participate in the festivities and many tested their skills with the cutlass. This sword play was taken very seriously and only the hardiest survived, while most of the cutlasses deflated quickly.
Captain Ron once again opened his shady establishment and served up his “adult” tropical specialties while pouring some kid friendly versions for the younger swabbies. Dinner was a Caribbean feast of Roast Pork and Jerked Chicken and Shrimp, with appetizers, side dishes and desserts from the four corners of the Seven Seas, courtesy of our generous members. The highlight of the day was the rousing music of the County Mayo Irish Band, who fully embraced the spirit of the day.
Thanks once again to Michelle Johnson, the “energizer bunny” of parties, as well as Michelle Bish, Kathy, Lori, Robbi and, of course Gracie, plus all the worthy seamen who did the heavy lifting.
Our final bash of the Summer will be The Century Club Speakeasy coming up on September 11th, but please don’t tell Eliot Ness.
