    I have a spare bed and a couch! Well a bed-couch and a couch. But if people are feeling energetic and want to move furniture around, the bed-couch folds out to a double.

    Will I find myself a pirate? With my recent quality of men it would be a large improvement.

    i think it would be hard NOT to find a pirate.

    I don't know how quality they will be though.

    Blackbeard is my favorite pirate ever because he was essentially putting on a big act, and it's so effective that it's worked for the last 200 years

    there is a bar near my parents house called the piratz tavern

    it is a pirate themed tavern (surprise) and I don't know what it was like before the pirates movies came out but now about half the waiters are just doing their best johnny depp impressions, but it is still a dumb fun place to drink every now and then

    This wouldn't happen to be in around the Maryland area at a town called Silver Springs, would it? Cause if it is, hoo-boy, that bar is definitely the subject of one of the better known episodes of Bar Rescue. The host and the bar owners-n-employees butted heads so badly, the latter not only ripped out the (admittedly debatable) improvements made by the show, they got rid of all of it in a very destructive manor.

    Good song to parady. Witnessing the mariner's revenge song in concert was something else.

    I'm almost ashamed of you.
    Sure, we've had Guybrush (mighty pirate!) make an apperance. But have we heard the best pirate song (ever) yet?!?

    This must be remedied.

    I understand it's Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival this weekend, so I guess you could go to that and feel piratey if anyone was in the area. And my brother's shanty group are performing there, so there's that.

    I am basically ON the area.
    though frankly the festival is kind of a pain because it's impossible to actually get a drink anywhere.

    Everything gets rebranded as 'grog'?

    Best Grog recipe there is:

    1 1/2 ounces Captain Morgan rum
    3 ounces brewed lemon tea
    1 tablespoon powdered sugar
    1 ounce sour mix
    Ice
    Lemon wedge, for garnish

    Trust me on this one, folks.

    No Pusser's Rum?

    Hardly seems accurate.

    I'm a tremendous fan of Pusser's and always keep a bottle or two stocked in my bar. However, I pulled that grog recipe from one of the best cocktail joints in the country and it is really really good.

    Go ahead and use any dark rum for it and I think you'll be good go.

    Sadly, I don't think a black rum like Kraken would work all that well, but that doesn't discount how good the rum is. Just not good in that application.

    I save all my whisky bottles that come with corks for later re-purposing as Bottles o' Grog.

    Nothing else makes so satisfying a noise when opened!

    Pirate Doom
    I like to think myself a discerning games player. I explore the far reaches of video games in search of fascinating systems, profound experiences, and deep truths. Also, I cannot stop beaming at Doom II imps dressed up as pirates whose hats drift lazily down to the ground after you blow them away with a flintlock. That’s Pirate Doom, a mod giving everything a piratical makeover with twenty-odd new levels, pirate hats, rum, beer, beards, peg legs, cannons, and ripped Monkey Island music.

    I hit up the lounge where the recipe is from this weekend. It's awesome, but I think at home I would add a 2 ounces of rum and it would be better.

    Enjoy.

    I remember as a child, thinking pirates didn't exist. After all, my first exposure to pirates was Peter Pan, a movie where there were fairies, mermaids, flying children, and racist caricatures of Natives. None of those existed in real life, so why would pirates exist?

    When I found out later in elementary school that at one period of time, pirates DID exist, it was a glorious epiphany. Sure, they didn't exist in this day and age, but at one time, they did exist.
