Dining Services hosted its second annual “Talk Like a Pirate … Eat Like a Pirate” event in the Capitol Eatery from 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, a buccaneers’ bash that served as a prelude to Friday’s international celebration of seafaring scalawags. Appropriately attired employees served up a cleverly crafted (and titled) menu – with Castaway Pork Loin, Jolly Roger Rice and Shipwrecked Chowder among the evening’s offerings.
