The Anna Maria Island Privateers are hosting their Privateer Time Travel Extravaganza at the Anna Maria Island Community Center located at 407 Magnolia Ave in the beautiful kingdom of Anna Maria Island.
If your heart could go back in time, where would it take you?
Come join the Anna Maria Island Privateers and travel back in time to when pirates sailed the open seas, when adventurers explored unknown territories looking for treasure, when the age of steam and machine working together were on the brink of discovery, or when starlets and hero’s graced the silver screen.
So jump in your time machine!! It’s going to be a time for pirates, time travelers and adventurers to come together for an evening of fun.
Dress in your favorite time period costume. Ladies travel in time and be Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn, Cleopatra, Wilma Flintstone, Greta Garbo, Scarlett O’Hara, or a Roaring 20’s Flapper. Gentlemen be adventurous and come as Al Capone, Dirty Harry, George Jetson, Fred Flintstone, Indiana Jones, Clark Gable, or Blackbeard the Pirate..…Photographer Jamie Blatt will be there to take your souvenir picture.
Food to be eaten, drinks to be drank, music to dance to, and pirate booty to be had. Come early as the cocktail and social hour starts at five O’clock. A full liquor, wine and beer cash bar will be available. DJ Scott Kemp will be spinning your favorite songs, so prepare to dance the night away to songs from the oldies to the 80s, and don’t be afraid to request your dance favorites.
There be grub to be had, catered by J & J Events featuring egg rolls, garbanzo hummus, ceviche, beef empanadas, cheese, fruit, vegetable kabobs, boneless buffalo bites, and topping it off is a delectable dessert bar formulated by our very own Terry “Cookie” Rapert, and is sure to delight even the sweetest of your sweet tooth.
There be pirate booty to be had with a 50/50 raffle, a handmade Krewe quilt raffle, a silent auction with lots of baskets of goodies, and a live auction. Renowned artist Don Maitz (the creator and artist of the Captain Morgan logo) has donated a signed piece of art, framed and matted as just one of the live auction items, and skuttlebutt is that Don and his wife may be there in attendance.
So all you time travelers and adventurers, gather up your friends, family, co-workers and Krewes and come eat, drink and be merry with the Pirates and Wenches from the Anna Maria Island Privateers in September.
