When you read about The Pirates of Lanier, you probably think of those bandits who overcharged you for messing up your water heater and refused to give you a refund. Right?
These Pirates of Lake Lanier are really good guys. Like the Lone Ranger, who wore a mask because … because … Wait. Why did he wear a mask? It doesn’t matter.
Sometimes Pirates are on our side! (At least until they get elected.) OUR Pirates don’t steal from anybody.
Participants in the Pirates of Lanier Family Poker Run pay to take part in three days of motoring their boats around the lake; dancing to tunes at the Lanier Islands amphitheater; a competition between insanely loud boat stereos; pseudo-casino gambling; and enough beautiful ladies that men would willingly walk the plank to meet a few. (Most wives will make that happen if their hubbies don’t weigh their dang anchors soon enough.)
