Talk Like a Pirate Day

Arrrrrr…how about “Talk WITH a Pirate” instead?


While finishing our family date night last night we found ourselves enjoying the company of Captain Jack and his crew.  Pirates of Halifax.  who knew?  Amazingly in character. Screen accurate costumes.  (and truly friendly pirates!  but shhhhh don’t tell anyone and ruin their rep.)

How much would a pirate pay for earrings?

A buck-an-ear!!!  haaaaaarrrrrrr!

Speaking of our Friday night dinner…we opted for McElvie’s for some delishes fishes dishes.  They really do have some of the nicest lobster in town!


Mom and I shared our appetizers…although I admit that once the mussels were placed in front of me I totally powered through them and kind of wished I had more to make my whole meal!  My only complaint was that they should be served with crusty bread for dipping in the incredibly tasty broth!  Our other appy was the tuscan shrimp…also very yummy!

Mom and FH each opted for the surf & turf…whole boiled lobster and NY strip steak.  I like to name all of the lobsters in restaurants Larry, but FH said his was Howard or Charlie or something.  :)

I chose their So Many Fish dish…this evening’s offering included a pesto salmon filet, spicy shrimp, and a half lobster thermador.  I thought the lobster would be the winner, but it turned out the salmon was the best.




Dessert Mom and I shared…creme brulee of course!


Deeelish food, excellent service, and impromptu pirate conversation!  What more could you want on a family date night?
