Shiver Me Tuesday Timbers!

Grog, swordfights, more grog
A pirate's life for me - Yarrgh!
'Tis past me bedtime! -Pirate Haiku

Arrrr, good times were had by all takers in september's cruise. Me parrot concurs that 50 mateys er thereabouts set sail at high tide from the Clean Machine. Grog hour (social) was extended on account of Pirattitude so we shoved off a bit late. Once rolling the urban high seas, there was no stoppin' the juggernaut -- not even a brush with the authorities would thwart full-sail. In the end, just twenty paces from Cat's Cradle we embarked on a chumbucket full of PBArr to quench a wench of a thirst and bid ourselves pleasure. Aye, mighty thanks from the top o' the crow's nest be hollerd to Archer Graphics fer lettin' us use their land fer the aftermath. If there be an easy rider that awoke Wednesday without the stinging on the brain o' a thousand jellyfish then we'll be keelhaulin the scum ridden weevil shagger on next month's ride.

All Wenches and Peg Legs beware! Next month (10/17) Cruise-Tues rolls through town on a Guerilla-style Dance party to be remembered. We'll predetermine 4 spots to "Flash-Dance" the night away. Suggestions are welcome and need be central. Brush up on your moves.

Ride Like a Pirate

Cruise-Tues happens to coincide with International Talk Like a Pirate Day this month. It's wicked fun to practice piracy so we encourage everyone to dress, talk and cruise like a pirate Tuesday 9/19. In today's proprietary world the term Pirate conjures up all kinds notions so traditional and twisted interpretations are encouraged. Find lots of resources at above link.

We also encourage folks to segue following the post-ride social to the M.Ward/Lambchop/Portastatic show at Cat's Cradle. Although the Independent proclaims Tuesday's Best Bet to be the $40 Nickel Creek show at Memorial Hall, those who know better will drop $14 in Carrboro for thrice the show. Indy does save face with John Schacht's informative feature on this Merge Records triple-shot. Get your tickets in advance.
