Captain Drew Announces Wholly Unauthorized Pub Crawl

This weekend pirates will descend upon the Georgia Renaissance Festival for their annual late spring gathering. The traditional meeting point for this assembly is the Pub on the Hilla picturesque pub serving beer, wine, cider, and ale.  This spot is one of several pubs featuring stage acts like Landloch’d and the Beastly Boys. It also features Friar Finegan, a monk who is developing a habit for leading festival-goers on pub crawls.

In an effort to assert his now-legendary pubcrawl-leading credentials, Captain Drew has made “arrangements” to lead a “pub crawl” of his own this Saturday at GARF’s Pirate Invasion. The Captain’s pub crawl will begin at the Pub on the Hill around 12:30pm, it will arrive at the Drunk Monk Pub by 1:15pm (wine and cheese MAY be available upstairs, if renovations are complete), arrive at the Brewer’s Pub by 2pm (musical act TBD by fate), then return back to the Pub on the Hill in time to join in on Continue Reading

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).

Pogue Mahone at PiratePalooza!

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Tommy and Foe’s friendship, but people who know them would swear the two have been friends for several lifetimes. They met briefly at DragonCon through their mutual friend, Wade Finch, but got to know each other much better by spending a few hours discussing costumes at Foe’s first PiratePalooza (Year 2, in 2006). Though they wouldn’t start singing together for another year or so, their friendship really began that night outside Continue Reading

Curvy, Scurvy, and Purvy at PiratePalooza!

The first two attempts to interview this singing group did not go as planned, and the third interview was an absolute disaster. The fourth interview was cancelled due to a lack of rum, and the fifth interview resulted in a fire that threatened to engulf half of Brest. The sixth interview attempt should never be mentioned in polite company. Finally, we decided to simply steal an interview with the group that was published by Rolling Schooner magazine in 1733.

When did you get together as a group? How did it happen?

Captain Scurvy Pete misplaced his old crew and was looking for a new crew. He met Curvy and agreed to hire him as his new cabin boy. (He still doesn’t understand his strange attraction to his Continue Reading

In 2004 Julia McPeek Campbell & Ian O’Donnell met at the North Georgia Celtic Festival where Ian had been performing solo for a couple of years. Julia was with the Border Collies at the time and the two musicians hit it off immediately and began playing together soon thereafter. Julia’s driving fiddle paired well with Ian’s musicianship & repertoire, and with their voices rounding Continue Reading

Tenpenny Travelers at PiratePalooza!

Tenpenny Travelers

The Tenpenny Travelers first met around the turn of the century at Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) meets, where they provided live music for dances. By 2005 their group had gone legit and could be found performing at the King’s Gate at the Georgia Renaissance Festival. This brief period as “classy instrumentalists” for the quality would not last long, however, as just two years later they’d be found performing for rum-soaked Continue Reading

Steve Wright and Ed Rigel first met sometime around 2008, at the Georgia Renaissance Festival. Both men were musicians, but would not play together until 2011 when Ed, learning that his current bandmate had a gig that conflicted for that year’s PiratePalooza™, reached out to Steve to see if he was interested in Continue Reading
