We are, in full pirate garb. My firm has a corporate tent. The whole day of a sitter (first time! ) is going to cost a fortune, but it should be fun.
What is it?
Pretty much just an excuse to drink and act like a pirate all day.
Gasparilla Pirate Fest is Tampa Bay’s unique historic pirate themed festival which features the Gasparilla Invasion, Invasion Brunch, Parade of the Pirates and Pirate Street Fest.

Well that just sounds awesome!
And what kind of pirate are you going to be?
Laura the Lash, who don't take no sass! Aaaaarrrrrrgggggg! Hand over yer jewels or I'll shiver yer ...................!
Sort of along the lines of the Penelope Cruz character from Stranger Tides. Since it is a client event (and since I'm not totally in shape) I can't go full on slutty pirate. Fluffy shirt, brown corset, burgundy sash to hold my fake sword, brown pants, and boots. Should be fun.
I went a long time ago, barely remember it. It's basically Florida's Mardi Gras.
Sounds good. Although public decorum dictates otherwise, we won't object if yer hubby snaps a few digis if you in your: "Tavern Wench by Day, Slutty Pirate Queen by Night!" And then shares!
Man I remember going to a few of those back in my HS days lol, I used to walk to it from my house. I haven't been yet since I have been in the Army, I usually take my FL vacation during Thanksgiving/Christmas. Not going this year either
Disclaimer-I say this in full sarcasm mode
Pics or it didn't happen
Lol @ Nash., and I agree with you Army.
I'll see what I can do. You guys need a "hot chicks" thread or something.
Next to you, there ain't nary sech a thang. Seminole women are the best, and then well back down the road one can find the rest. Are you dressing the young ladies up too! You haveto show out with that!
No kids, but Charlotte will be dressed up at home. She got to go 2 years ago before the firm said no kids, so she's pretty bummed.
No kids!? Why I ought to come down there and set off some fire works on their carcasses. Firm? Sounds more like a SLACK to me. Who woulda ever thought a so-called firm would be askeered of a coulpa keeds. And I thought lawyers were smart too! See, how you do it, is pick a charitable concern - Uncle Nash's Nuke the Whales 'n steal all their oil for instance - and have the kids KIDNAPPED, and make the parents ransom them for their very lives. All proceeds go straight to the aforementioned charity, whence Nash will use the proceeds for underwater research excursions in the Galápagos Islands, French Polynesia where it's rumored the women don't wear no tops, and Pulau - the widely recognized best SCUBA Diving destination known to man. Upon return he will write a full report, submitting same to the "firm", and bring back a beautiful shell necklace or bracelet for all the stolen kiddies, and a set of Black Pearl earrings for Laura.
I was there. Beautiful weather this year.
I only go because I go to a private party on Bayshore, I couldn't take having to be in the parade crowd the entire time.
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
