Happy Reading Hour: Talk Like a Pirate Day

(General Event)

Sep 19,2014, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ 826 Valencia, The Pirate Store
On “Talk Like A Pirate Day” this year we want to celebrate Pirates from all walks of life from the deckhands with experimental grammar to speechifying Captains. 826 Valencia will be hosting our monthly Happy Reading Hour on the 19th from 6-8 PM at 826 Valencia and will be providing snacks and drinks. We will be reading from our student's published works, and educating people on the finer points of what speaking like a pirate actually means, as student Layla Durrani so eloquently states, “To be a pirate, you need to do more than put on a plumed hat and say 'Aaarrgh!' every moment you get.”

If you've missed our previous Happy Reading Hours, here's the idea: from 6pm - 8pm, we (you and us, 826 Valencia, plus our friends from Vouched Books) gather in the Pirate Store and fill the space with our melodic or not so melodic voices (you know who you are, but it's okay, we take all types here). You may choose to read a piece aloud or, for a more introspective evening, write your own. Drinks and nibbles are always available and honestly, we can't think of a better way to start a Friday night.

And, as always, you can stock up on all your Pirate needs at 826 Valencia: San Francisco's only independent Pirate Supply Store.
