Ahoy Pirate Lovers
September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Couple that with the well known fact that sailors were given a daily ration of rum to prevent scurvy and I know you'll right keen to join your maties at the Elysium Lakeside for a drop of the old Captain Morgan (for medicinal purposes - that scurvy is a nasty business),

talk like a pirate, elysium, pub,
Don't miss it me hearties.

Not up on Pirate talk? All you need to do is put a scarf around your head and poke a gold ring through your ear, roll a few rrrrr s and shout a few nautical phrases and you'll be Jake. There's no need at all to remove an eye or a leg - that's just stereotyping. Mind you, if you happen to have a parrot ..... there be treasure for well dresses pirates and wenches thanks to Captain Morgan.

Try these:
Avast me hearties
Scurvy Landlubbers (that's an insult)
Shiver me timbers ( that's swearing)
Perhaps a few tales about how you survived walking the plank or keelhauling.

Perfectly positioned for piracy on the Victoria Point Lakeside, Elysium is normally a wine and tapas destination. As well as rum and beer you can also find fresh Australian grub, - no salt pork here - wine and cocktails. No need to travelling into the city for a great night out, Elysium has you covered.

Read about the suitably ridiculous origin of this day here.
Open Tuesday to Sunday 11am till late.
