Well now’s about as good a time as any to announce to the world at large that Pirate Palooza 2005 is officially on for September 17th, the Saturday of International Talk Like a Pirate Weekend. Pirate Palooza is going to be a pirate-themed pub crawl through dowtown Decatur, Georgia. The Official Pirate Palooza website is now online. Pirate Palooza will culminate in a pub sing performed by popular local groups who specialize in Irish folk songs, English sailing ditties and other popular pub classics, skewed toward pirate-themes of course. Naturally we expect for everyone to dress in pirate garb, even if it’s only an eyepatch or a bandana tied around your head. Follow the link above for more information!
