The weekend is so jammed, we already had to post our Weekend Wrap-Up so you can decide what to fit in. But there are two additional events you might want to consider adding to the agenda. (even MORE food and drink options!)
First, today is ‘National Talk Like a Pirate Day‘ (it’s a real thing). So you can spend the day at work telling people to walk the plank and it will seem cute, instead of threatening. Or you could be the office hero by dressing up in pirate gear and marching over to Krispy Kreme and getting a free box of doughnuts. (if you don’t like your office-mates, you can just talk like a pirate and get a free glazed doughnut) They even have some templates you can use to make an eye patch, hand hook, or parrot for your shoulder.
Qualifying pirate costumes must include three or more of the items below.
Make yer own Pirate Academy approved accouterments at home or while on ye ship. Tag and share ye pirate gear using #TalkLikeAPirate.
- Eye Patch
- Pirate Hat
- Pirate Flag (Black or Red)
- Peg Leg
- Parrot on Shoulder
- Pirate Shirt / Loose white shirt
- Leather belt
- Silver and gold necklaces and earrings
- Pirate Hook
- Pointy black boots or ragged brown sandals
Pirate gear is optional for the next event, but it’s in Fells Point, so it won’t look out of place. Full Tilt Brewing’s Hop Harbor is having their release party at Max’s Tap House on Saturday night. The party begins when the Maryland Brewer’s Harvest ends and is free to the public. Hop Harbor is described as ‘the brew for the Hop-Head in all of us. From the lineage of Simcoe and Nugget, Mosaic hops play the leading role in both flavor and aroma in this brew’s generous and complex hop bill. Balanced with a full body and an ABV of 8.3%, this Double IPA isn’t for the faint-of-heart and should not be taken lightly.’
The official tapping will happen at 7 pm alongside their line-up of Full Tilt’s Patterson Pumpkin, Fleet Street Raspberry Wheat, Baltimore Pale Ale, Fully Tilted Baltimore Pale Ale, and Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout.
