Ahoy me buckos!
The Pirate Easter Party was born during Jeff and Jude’s Vampire New Year’s Eve, long before the coincidental boarding of the Maersk Alabama.
Pirates and Easter are an obvious match: hunting for eggs or buried treasure; hurling eggs or cannonballs; hopping down the bunny trail or walking the plank; the wearing of funny hats. Twelve of me hearties joined me for this eyepatch optional occasion.
