This coming Monday is Talk Like a Pirate Day. So Aaaarrrr ye feelin’ like talkin’ like a pirate? Talking like a pirate can be a lot of fun, especially if you are a Buccaneers fan, work on a boat dock or cruise ship, or plan to attend a certain Orlando dinner show! For 14 years, this non-traditional celebration has grown into an international phenomenon. You don’t even have to go to Davy Jones’ locker to get the treasure! It’s right here in Central Florida.
Ahoy! This fun-filled day with maties carrrrry-ing on creates plenty of yo-ho-ho-ing amongst seadogs. So much fun that many local businesses have created special events whar ye don’t have to be walkin’ the plank to get some booty. Don’t be a scallywag and hang the jib, find or create a party and get talkin’ like a pirate!
Talk Like a Pirate Day Special Events in Orlando
This is one of the first years that Pirates Dinner Adventure in Orlando, Florida has not offered a special for this holiday. According to I-Drive, Pirate’s Town will have a short contest prior to their show to see if guests are able to talk like pirates. Their “EFSAVINGS16” special covers the entire month of September. This is when crowds are fewer and discounts are widely used in all of the area’s attractions. Discounts lure the remaining tourists into these lesser-known venues. They also give local residents an incentive to get out and experience what is offered to visitors. Take advantage, people!
The Florida Hospitality Industry is hosting a Talk Like a Pirate Day at the Tin Roof at I-Drive 360. If you are in the hospitality industry, it should be a fun time. Special drink prices will be offered. If you win the talking contest, your bar tab could be taken care of! Other prizes will be awarded as well. The party takes place from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
An Especially Sweet Incentive on September 19
In addition to these fun events, the one I am most excited about is Krispy Kreme’s Talk Like a Pirate Day offer. Any landlubber who dares to enter a participating Krispy Kreme on Monday and talk like a pirate will score one free Original Glazed doughnut. Want a dozen donuts? Use a custom Snapchat pirate filter, ‘dress’ like a pirate, show your Snapchat image to a team member and score ye bounty! Here are the closest participating locations in the Orlando area:
- Krispy Kreme Winter Park – 1031 S. Orlando Avenue (17-92), Winter Park, FL 32789
- Krispy Kreme Millenia – 4080 Millenia Blvd., Orlando, FL 32939
- Krispy Kreme Kissimmee – 5310 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, (192 / Mile Marker 11.5), Kissimmee, FL 34746
If you’d rather talk like a mobster, you do not need a special holiday for that. Every evening, Capone’s Dinner & Show immerses itself in the hay days of mobsters and dames. As with pirate lingo, the online 20’s slang dictionary is a blast to read through and will properly prepare you for an evening at this joint.
Take a trip back to 1930 and enjoy an Orlando dinner show for half price! You won’t incur extra charges for parking, electronic tickets or alcoholic beverages either. It’s a blast from the past that you can enjoy every night of the year, no matter how you talk.
Remember to switch your language preference on Facebook back to English from English Pirate. Otherwise you’ll annoy your winches and scabbard friends!
