Pirate Pub Plunder Tonight!

Ahoy mateys! Set sail with us as we plunder pubs of downtown Madison to raise money for the Dane County Humane Society! Bring $10 in dubloons to donate to the DCHS and then join in for an evening of shanties, grub, and grog and we march from port to port for an evening of merriment!

Here's an approximate route, subject to change if we get delayed, get lost, feel like moving early, stumble into somewhere else, or otherwise decide to change it. We'll try to keep things on or close to the square rather than heading towards campus.
