Talk Like a Pirate Day

Learning how to talk like a pirate is way harder than you think. There's a lot more to it than just saying “Arr, matey.” For starters: You have to learn how to walk on a peg leg while wearing an eye patch (unless you are already doing those things for non-pirate reasons). Then you have to learn how to keep grog down (an effort on its own). And you have to do it all while a parrot poops on your shoulder. This Thursday, Sept. 19, join 505 Steampunk: Society of Brass and Steam at O'Neills in the Heights to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day the right way—by dressing silly and saying weird things from 6:30 to 8pm.
