Sept. 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day, and Anchorage is not excluded from the swashbuckling fun.


KTVA 11’s Emily Carlson, known as the pirate Shiny Buckles Doubloon, sat down with Kevin Hall, the founder of the annual Pirate Pub Crawl. This year’s pub crawl will be on Saturday, Sept. 24.


The event benefits the Blood Bank of Alaska, with donations accepted at each participating bar. All pub crawl merchandise proceeds will go to the nonprofit as well, according to Hall.
