Depoe Bay, Oregon, Pirate Treasure Hunt

4 posts in this topic

Here in Depoe Bay, we have plenty of Pirate businesses... Pirate Cove gift shop, Pirate Booty Pub, Pirate Coffee Company, and down the road a spell there's Captain Dan's Pirate Pastry Shop, Pirate Island, Pirate's Plunder. There was until recently a pub called the Black Pearl. Why? We have a bay called Pirate Cove on any map you'd care to look at. Then there's the Sea Hag restaurant, and my own shop: Things Rich and Strange. All good reasons to visit.

But wait! Each August we all get together and put on the Pirate Treasure Hunt, Saturday August 21st to be sure. Teams of four compete to win treasure chests stocked by the local merchants and every team's a winner, of course some win more than others. It's part game show stunts tasks, part murder mystery, with teams solving the clues and interacting with local pirate characters to see whodunnit.

In the evening there's the Pirate's Ball, where the mystery play is enacted and the murder is solved. And there's an auction. And there's Rum. And there's Barbecue Dinner by Ripe Tide BBQ, our favorite Boucaneer.

What's it cost? Just $100 for a team of four. Dinner is $15, and the bar is no host. It's all to benefit the Depoe Bay Food Bank, and Kids Holiday Toy program.

Hope you can make it. Treasure Depoe Bay

Man, too bad it isn't October. I will have 10 of my crewe up there to put on our pirate dinner show for some big-wigs. Love Depoe Bay. Used to go fishing (well, puking) when I was a wee one with family. Glad to see that pirates are thick as thieves there. Will be hoisting one to you at the Rogue Brewery when we come your way.

We'll be doing a pirate event there at the Spirit Mountain Casino. We're performing for the VIPs on Friday at an invitation only dinner, but Saturday (Oct. 23) there is a pirate party we're hosting that is open to the general public and they'll be having a costume contest, karaoke and such. Everyone's welcome to join the fun that day.
