The 2nd Annual Ocracoke- A Pirate Gathering

Legend has it that near the end of his infamous career, Blackbeard came up with a plan to fortify a base to make it into a pirate haven. The location for this endeavor was to be village of Ocracoke, in the North Carolina colony, where many believe the pirate had established a “business relationship” with the colonial governor.

In memory of this idea, our good friends from The Copper Coin Festhall are presenting “Ocracoke- A Pirate Gathering” in Centralia, Washington, this weekend.

The 2nd Annual Ocracoke- A Pirate Gathering kicks off on Saturday, January 14th at 1pm. This 21 and over event will be featuring games, shanties, grog, belly dancers, performers and food. PDXYAR will be on hand to provide not only shanties, but also a performance featuring the sultry stylings of The Broadsides.

If you are not familiar with The Copper Coin Festhall, it be not your typical bar. Harkening back to an earlier age, The Copper Coin operates essentially on the concept of Bring-Your-Own-Booze, but with a twist. Just bring a bottle of rum, vodka, whiskey, tequila,or whatever you like and give it to the bar. Then you get to drink what ever you like all night. The Copper Coin has a large selection of cocktails and tasty drinks they can serve. Simply put, be good to The Coin and they’ll be good to you!

On top of the delightful entertainments and fine drinks, here will be a free dinner on Saturday night, as well as a free breakfast Sunday morning.
