La st Saturday, Uno de Mayo, The Alliance of the Double Cross had one helluva fun time at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Irwindale,CA. The weekend was Swashbuckler weekend or somesuch, but we grog thirsty Pirates were not there to buckle and swashes--we was there to, uh, well, um, walk around and socialize primarily.
It was a gorgeous day to gather and we were able to enjoy our mates and meet some new folks. Not only did we have our regular array of miscreants, but we were also joined by Jamaica Rose Barton. Also joining us, was an addition to me crew of The Pride, Quartermaster Sebastian Cain.
We meandered around the grounds, drank some ale and did some shopping. We caught a few shows and overall just relaxed as if we had just come off account. Though there was considerable amount less raping. Well, ye can'ts have everything.
The regular Renaissance faire is going on through the end of the month, so go and visit.
Next major event for the Alliance is Pier Daze in Long Beach. It should be quite a show as we shall be firing our black powder flintlocks and doing some sword work. Come on out and join us.
