Swashbuckler's Ball

I am always on the look out for new pirate events and the Swashbuckler's Ball sounds like a great event that will give back to the pirate community of Oregon. The event will have some of the great performers from Portland Pirate Festival, a raffle for some prizes, merchants of pirate nature, Caribbean themed food, and of course a full bar.  The event is being held at the Melody Ballroom in Portland, OR on Saturday, November 20 2010 from 7:00 pm to Midnight. So come out and support your local pirates and have a good time while doing it. 

 Excerpt from the Swashbuckler's Ball website.
"In the wake of Poseidon’s wrath providing us with less than spectacular weather during the 2010 Portland Pirate Festival, there were a few of us who wanted to give back to an event that has meant so much to our town’s piratical community. After five years, the Portland Pirate Festival has become a cultural mainstay of our fair city and a unifying gathering for brethren from all shores. It is our collective hope that the Pirate Fest returns in 2011, but there are ultimately some financial issues that must be addressed before that can become a reality.
To that end, we would like to officially announce this glorious event which aims to help a cause that be near an’ dear to our black hearts."
