The 411 on Piratz Tavern

There's been a lot of interest expressed in the soon-to-be-open Piratz Tavern at 8402 Georgia Avenue, but very little information available about the establishment. I was able to get the following information from the Tavern's "Task Master", Tracy:

The full [website] will be up by COB this Friday, and we plan to re-do the windows to include a bit more information as well as a now hiring notice. Full info, including menu, etc. will be on the web, but in the interim I can give you a few details.

We plan to open by the end of the month (hopefully). The tavern is a family oriented restaurant with a (obviously) pirate theme. The decor is pretty outrageous and the food and wine will be original, international and reasonably priced. We will have a full bar, live international music (reggae, moroccan/berber, pirate, etc.) and remain open at night as long as the county will allow. We have a fairly large terrace that has a caribbean/tropical theme. Our chef was born in the Canary Islands and raised in New Zealand and Portugal.
Sounds sweet!

Yet another reason for hipster D.C. types to laugh at SS, despite the fact that the place sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Well their nautical-themed bar, Sign of the Whale, is closing.

I must be a huge dork because I am really excited for this place to open. I hope they passout eye patches on their opening day, because that would make my day!
