tiki freaks, meet pyrate freaks
http://www.pyracy.com

We have lounge-a-rific tiki crawls & tropical drinks, they have swashbuckling pyrate festivals at port towns where they fire fake canons on sailboats & mix gunpowder in their rum. We have the Tiki News zine, they have the No Quarter Given zine. To each his own!

For non tiki-talk:

Kahukini,

About 5 years ago, the Mrs and I spent a day at Catalina Island. Sometime in the afternoon, a group of pirate costumed folks entered the bar we were drinking at. They were particitpating in some kind of scavenger hunt. As a matter of fact, every 10 minutes or so a group of these folks would come in doing the same thing.

We were puzzled about the whole thing of course. Nevertheless-- it looked like they were having loads of fun! They arrived in a large pirate ship and were loud and boisterous (similar to us TC'ers when on one of our barcrawls).

Could they have been part of this group?

PoP, it was probably during "Pirate Days". The entire city of Two Harbors" or the "Isthmus goes off for a week in the summer. 10,ooo pirates drunk, in a very small area! (I re-did the oldest bar there a while back and learned of this while I was there. It's in the last Tiki News.)

Yup, that looks like them. Not that I recognize their faces or anything but their website fits the description of something we witnessed. It did look like they were having a blast!

So, these guys & gals imbibe in rum drinks and nautical bars/restaurants? Hmmm...sounds very familiar...
