Where Can I Park for PiratePalooza?

2016-decaturparkingmap

People often say to me, they say, “Captain, could you please climb down off of my table while I am eating dinner,” which is a perfectly reasonable request. Other times they simply ask me where they should park when attending my world famous PiratePalooza™ Pubcrawl & Pubsing. On those occasions I simply tell them “Have a look at this map!!”, which is what I’m telling YOU at this very moment. This map has been purloined from the City of Decatarrrr who want you to know that they in no way endorse the piratical arts, at least that is my surmise, since they rather pointedly asked me to clamber down from atop their table only moments ago. Touchy people, these Decatarrrroines. Anyhow, for your convenience, here is a higher resolution version PDF (an approximately 824k download).

Billy Bones’ Best Buy on Boots!

2016-billys-boots_001

In today’s post I’ll attempt to help a mate sell a pair of very special boots…. Whether you know it or not, it’s not easy being a pirate; in fact it’s a rather expensive endeavor – just ask our pal Chad (aka “Billy Bones”), who has recently learned a very expensive lesson about footwear. This most recent season at the Georgia Renaissance Festival Chad finally decided to invest in some quality Continue Reading

After an exciting incident with scones and a wooden chair at the Royal Peacock Tea Room, and in an effort to decrease rail and bannister-related injuries, I recently assumed the position of INSPECTOR with the Bureau of Renaissance Festival Inspections and paid a visit upon the Georgia Renaissance Festival and am pleased to announce that Continue Reading

Levin Delivers Exquisite New Album La Luminosa

2016-05-26–la-luminosa_002

Last weekend I wandered through the royal court at the Georgia Renaissance Festival and happened upon Rivka Levin of Three Quarter Ale fame playing her harp and singing music from her latest album (a copy of which I purchased after the performance). Rivka’s skill at the harp is well known to regulars of the festival as is her beautiful voice and I’m happy to Continue Reading

Renaissance at the Georgia Renaissance Festival

2016-05-11-garf-map_001

As a skilled attendee of the Georgia Renaissance Festicle (GARF) I would like to share with the world at large my excitement at the genuine effort the owners have been putting into spiffing the old place up and marketing her to Atlanta – there’s been a literal “renaissance” at this year’s Renaissance Festicle. In years past GARF’s television spots featured some other bunch of renfest actors from some other faire – this year the spots have featured the actual Georgia cast – and those spots are running online as well – I see them on Facebook every day and have scored discounts to GARF from those online ads when they feature discount codes like Continue Reading

The Pyrates Royale To End Their Voyage?

2016-01-pirates-royale_001

UPDATE! Good news, the Pyrates Royale cannot be stopped. Ian O’Donnell reports that the Pyrates have been reincarnated and that you can get the latest information about them on their Pyrates Royale Reunion page on Facebook (click!)

Shocking news reached the ship tonight that the Pyrates Royale have announced they would be ending the voyage they first began in 1986.  Upon hearing the news Captain Drew issued the ship’s flags to be lowered to “one half thirds mast” and that extra rum rations be issued for himself until further notice.  Curiosity abounds around the ship, but all agree that the Pyrates Royale were Continue Reading

Offended Artists Justify Themselves with Petulant Redesign

Dear humans of the United States, just when I believe that I have finally understood what drives your species you go and have a swutting juju-flop of a frandelkrap about some bloody t-shirts that simply encouraged your children to pick themselves up from your nasty, action-figure strewn carpeted floors, launch themselves past your Continue Reading

Captain Drew’s New Year’s Wish

captain-and-sarah

I really like you people (even the ones who aren’t pirates) and I hope that as we write our final lines into the chapter of the year that you are okay. Perhaps not deliriously happy and joyous, but at the very least okay at the foundation of your being.

I hope that you are healthy, though I know for a fact that more than a few of you are dealing with medical issues or taking care of loved ones who are not well. Very few of us stop to consider how fortunate we are in times of good health, and I am certainly not always the most thoughtful to ask how you are when I run into you, half-drunk clutching a turkey legge in one gauntlet and a purloined Continue Reading
