From Pictures

Repeal Day is here.  Saturday.  The next biggest drinking holiday ever.   The day we celebrate our innate right to get completely wasted as protected by the constitution of the United States of America.” Scott preaches.

Where are we going to go? Out? Stay in? Make moonshine in the tub?” Sara asks.

No moonshine in the girls’ tub, thanks.”  Tabitha says.

You could use ours.” Scott says.

I don’t trust ever getting your tub clean.  I’m afraid I’ll catch swine flu just looking at it.” Ann says.

Oh, it’s not that bad.  Besides, the alcohol will kill the germs.”  Frank says.

We’ll just go out.  Beer place? The Ginger Man?” Sara suggests.

What about one of those speakeasy places?  Really get into the theme of the day.  Milk and Honey, or that Crif Dogs place..PDT.”  Billy suggests.

I don’t know if I feel like drinking high quality martinis.  They’re too strong for me.” Ann complains.

And too expensive.  Way too expensive.”  Tabitha adds.

Do we want to just stick to local then, go to Catalina’s?” Frank asks.

Boo! No Catalina’s.  Gotta do something special.” Scott insists.

There’s this other bar that I’ve heard of, that’s supposed to be good with craft beers, and regular alcohol as well.  Rattle N Hum. It’s in midtown.”  Sara suggests.

Arr! Be it a pirate bar?” Billy asks.

Ahoy Matey!  Me will bring me eyepatch!” Scott says.

I don’t think it’s a pirate bar..I don’t know what it’s named for though, so maybe.  I’ve never been there.  But I’m not associating with you if you’re wearing an eye patch and talking like a pirate.”  Sara says.

Party pooper.” Billy says.

Girls don’t really go for the pirate thing anyway.  You’re better off.”  Ann says.

She’s got a point there.”  Scott agrees.

So, we’re agreed?  Rattle N Hum Saturday night for Repeal Day?  Good.  I’ve got to go now, I’m working tonight.”  Ann says, going to her room to get ready.

Now that we’ve settled that, lets watch the Nets try to set records for suckiness.” Frank says, turning on the tv.

    I have unfortunately lived my life up until now without an awareness of this holiday. Thank you for the enlightenment.

    Yeah, I’ve never heard of this holiday either, but it sounds like one I could get on board with :)

    Once I went to this Japanese bar/restaurant called “Kaizoku no Daidokoro” which translates as “Pirate’s Kitchen.”

    Naturally, I expected something piratey. I mean, it even had a skull and crossbones in the logo!

    So I got this whole group of people together, we were all set for this piratey dinner, roll inside and….

    it’s just a regular restaurant. Nothing remotely piratey about it. I looked like such a dumbass too, because I had convinced everyone of what an awesome night it was going to be – most of them didn’t speak Japanese either so they wouldn’t believe me when I told them that in fact, the sign said “Pirate’s Kitchen” in Japanese. They just thought I made shit up.

    *sigh*

    And that was my pirate-bar-themed story :)
