We have one here (Ojai, CA) with a pirate theme.
I am leaving to go to it right now.
I will let you all know how the grog and gruel is.

Hi, Used to lived in Venice beach and was part of the Irish music scene around there, our band, Southwind Irish Band, played for some big audiences and smaller ones like McCabes Guitar shop in Santa Monica. Ever go there? It was our dive for a long time! Nance Covey, Karen Olsen, people like that used to work there.
BTW, since you live in Ojai, a buddy of mine used to live in that area and I lost touch, Bill Jackson, great irish fiddler, worked for the phone company for decades. Could you look in the phone book and see if you can find him? Would appreciate it.
