It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day. We here in Santa Barbara take our pirate heritage very seriously! Aaarrgh.

All you landlubbers, call up ye old Cap'n Don and take a sunset Pirate Cruise tonight.

Pirate Sunset Cruise
Quench your thirst on Pirate rum or other drinks in the galley. The spirits run high on this 1 ½ hour adventure along the coast of Santa Barbara. Gather up your mates and enjoy a golden sunset from the Pacific Ocean over looking beautiful Santa Barbara.
Sail on down to the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum and swab ye some decks...I mean enjoy the historic treasures.

Young visitors and their families are invited to dress in their fearsome pirate best and join us for swashbuckling fun and adventure each September 19th.

Internationally celebrated, “Talk like a Pirate” Day gives young and old alike the opportunity sample life as a pirate, traveling an uncharted course to adventure and hidden treasure. Once ye can talk like a pirate, any buccaneer can explore the unburied treasure that the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum has to offer. With a treasure map to lead you through the Museum, enjoy pirate-themed trivia & activity sheets. Arrgh, matey
Take ye selves down to Video Schmideo and see if they have a copy of The Plack Pirate (1926) which was filmed on Santa Catalina Island and stars the ultimate swashbuckler, Douglas Fairbanks.

Put up the spinnakers and set sail to Ojai for their Pirate Faire this weekend.
The Ojai Pirate Faire, taking place over two consecutive weekends this month, will celebrate all things piratical, from rum to cutlasses and from buxom lasses … probably back to rum. This September’s Faire, Ojai’s 17th annual pirate invasion, will include all of the above plus a myriad of other activities and entertainments, including something tantalizingly described in the event program as a “Bawdy Juggler.” And there will also be belly dancers, just in case the juggling isn’t sufficiently bawdy. - The Santa Barbara Independent
