Another Gasparilla in the books for the pirates of Tampa Bay. Each year gets a little more tame due to limiting drinking to “designated wet zones”, increased police presence and a heck of a lot more porta potties. Nothing leads to more chaos then not having plenty of opportunities for people drinking alcohol all day aka a diuretic for places to relieve themselves. The million dollar homes around Bayshore were getting fed up with people using their lawns in the same manner that their dogs would. This year in my opinion the parade looked well organized and I saw less public arrests.
With that said. I am starting to feel old. Well maybe not old but at the point in my life where I feel it is inappropriate for girls to dress up in lingerie and call themselves a pirate.
As we were walking around the invasion I asked about 5 different girls if they were wearing pants. Apparently I didn’t get the memo this year the dress code was a shirt and boy shorts underwear. Don’t worry I captured some evidence for you.
