Arrrrg! We're heading to the White Lake Beach Resort for their First Annual Pirates Take the Beach extravaganza! We are dusting off our pirate hats, Christie is collecting new pirate jokes, and we are oh so ready to spend a weekend digging for treasure on the beach. There are accommodations galore and a restaurant right on site. There's also a full bar with beverages to satisfy the most savage pirate ... like three different kinds of kiddie cocktails, really, true story, THREE different kinds! Come on out and support this family owned business that continues to promote folk music in all its forms. Plus, PIRATES!
