***Photo/Editorial Review of the May 19 Pirate Festival***
The wenches and pirates were out in full force on a sunny Los Angeles afternoon at the Pirate Festival on May 19.
The Pirate Festival was a celebration of all things pirate, including a wench/pirate burlesque show that had women in sexy wench outfits dancing to contemporary tunes. Numerous breweries and wineries were on hand sampling their products, while french fries fried in bacon oil were sampled by Los Angeles’s Black Diamond catering.
On a rooftop in Downtown Los Angeles, the Pirate Festival combined the SoCal sun with the anarchy that consumed the high seas several centuries ago. With a hosted bar serving a variety of beverages, next year’s Pirate Festival should be on the radar for anyone who likes having a good time.
Original Story, dated April 6
If a pirate’s life is for you and you wish International Talk Like A Pirate Day was every day, then you won’t want to miss out on the 2012 Los Angeles Pirate Festival taking place May 19 in Downtown LA.
With some of the best pirate performers from around the world, the Pirate Festival is a super fun event that focuses on three things: beer, bacon and booty.
an and Captain Kidd, and a few wenches. Don’t be a surprised if a couple sword fights breaks out, too.
While the Pirate Festival focuses on the drinks pirates love (think beer and rum) the event also celebrates bacon. Available food includes bacon-wrapped hot dogs, bacon appetizers and bacon desserts.
So, what we have here is a variety of imported and microbrewed beers AND a variety of food lathered in bacon. How can this event get any better? By the event’s proceeds benefiting the Children’s Tumor Foundation in Los Angeles.
The Pirate Festival takes place at the rooftop party area at 1010 Wilshhire in Downtown Los Angeles and runs from 1pm to 5pm for those with a VIP ticket ($65), and 2pm to 5pm ($25) for those with a general admission ticket. Tickets include food and drinks, but make sure to purchase your tickets soon, as they’re running out. They can be bought online at www.piratefestival.net.
