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
Posted in: GARF, Pub News. Comments Off on Renaissance at the Georgia Renaissance Festival
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.

Fortunately, the King has been thoughtful enough to send ’round his own Tax Collector to gather census information from those too busy (or illiterate) to fill out the proper paperwork. Here you’ll see him interviewing Captain Drew for the 1534 census!

This past weekend Wicked Pete Speakeasy caught Captain Drew loitering in New Castle, leading to a nasty game of Salt, Slug, Foot between the two. Fortunately for you, it was captured on magnetic media.
The bearded pirate merchant in this photo named “Captain Matt” went to a place called The Georgia Renaissance Festival. While there he was seized with a desire to record the moment, so he asked his friends to take his photo on this very spot. However, as he be a right bastard of a pirate, he’d already slain his entire crew (with the exception of a goat named “Pierre” and a moldy bar of Continue Reading
