*** TLAPDay Events Around the World
>From Texas to Toulouse, Montreal to Montevideo, Nashville to the Netherlands, the world is getting set to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Here are just a few of the events scheduled all around the globe. For more, visit our Big Map o' Piratey Fun ? or as we likes to call it, the Calend-Aarrr! ? at http://talklikeapirate.com/piratehome.html (don't forget to scroll down, it's not right on top.)
-- The Robert Louis Stevenson Museum in St. Helena, Calif., will host a holiday Pirate School for the wee nippers, beginning at 1 p.m. Sept. 19. Pirates age 5 to 10 can enjoy fun, arts and crafts. Create your own sword and hat, learn songs and shanties, explore the museum for buried treasure. What better place to celebrate than a museum devoted to the author of "Treasure Island?" Just remember the words of Billy Bones and be on the watch for "a sea-farin' man with one leg."
-- R?ves Temporels will celebrate the holiday early, on Sept. 15, in Toulouse, France. "We make an big day with a Pirates's Parade in Toulouse and go to a stopover at the edge of the Garonne," they write. "We finish this day in the Pirates's tavern (at 8pm)." I don't know what a stopover is, but it sounds fun. The evening party will include "more animations, concert, and other surprises!" Learn more on the group's Facebook events page.
-- In Rome (yes, THAT Rome!) Chiesa Pastafarians will celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day and Pastafarianism Sept. 19 at Viale Appio Claudio 336, Rome. Check the Facebook event page.
-- Our pal Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers will raid Music City Roots, a live show broadcast from the Loveless Cafe, 8400 Highway 100, Nashville, beginning at 7 p.m. CST on Lightning 100 FM and simulcast on the Web. Cover price is $10, but you can watch online for free at http://musiccityroots.com/live-stream. The performance features a guest appearance by legendary Australian singer Dobe Newton, lead singer of the Bushwackers and a bit of a pirate himself. "Music City Roots, Live From The Loveless Cafe," is a weekly, two-hour radio show that revives the historic legacy of live musical radio production in Nashville.
-- And of course, the Tony Award-winning Broadway show "Peter and the Starcatchers" has a Sept. 19 event they're callin' Stache Day, after Black Stache, the mustachio'd rogue played by Matthew Saldivar. If ye be in New York City on Sept. 19, and have (or can fabricate) a mustache, head down to the Brooks Atkinson Theatre Box Office (256 West 47th Street) by 10AM - the first 100 'stached pirates in line will get a free ticket to that night's show. And better yet: the three best 'staches (as judged by our Close Personal Friend and Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Dave Barry, his "Peter and the Starcatcher" co-author Ridley Pearson and Black Stache hisself - will get a pair o' seats for the performance! More information is at: http://peterandthestarcatcher.com/landing-pages/stache-day/
