Nerdy Photo Monday - Pirate Birthday Party

Pirate Party

Sometime's you just need to have a pirate party.

This summer we turned our backyard into a pirate tavern. We built a bar, we hung rigging, we put up dozens of lanterns. Inside, there was a treasure pile. We served rum punch, rum, meat pies, sausage on a stick, and lots of bread. We played sea shanties, and everyone had to come in costume. We even re-created the redhead pirate painting from the Pirates of the Caribbean (A Portrait of Things to Come by Marc Davis).

More photos of the party here.

We drank a lot of this:
Pineapple Rum Punch
1 28oz can pineapple juice
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
5 cups white rum

Mix ingredients in a large bowl or jug. Stir really well until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate overnight. Drink up me hearties!
