Saturday, July 6, 2013's Lowdown

It feels like we're on the tail end of piratemania. It's been ten years since Captain Jack Sparrow first charmed his way into the public's consciousness in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Great memories. But we've moved on to zombies now. 

But that is not to say that it isn't still fun to dress up like a pirate (way less labor intensive than zombie makeup)! Thus, North Coast Repertory Theatre is inviting you to do just that for their 2013 Pirate Ball Saturday night at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka.

The event is a fundraiser for NCRT building upkeep and features music and dancing with Donna Landry and Swing Set, food, drink, belly dancing by Ya Habibi Dance Company, swashbuckling sword fights, silent auction, prizes, and surprises -- no zombies though. Maybe next year.

Other Saturday options below in today's Lowdown.

Brian Oberlin will be giving a mandolin demonstration in Ferndale. Eight strings tuned in unison sounds like heaven to me!
