To celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day (Yes, there is such a thing), the culinary department at Pennsylvania College of Technology, in Williamsport, hosted a Talk Like a Pirate…Eat Like a Pirate event in the Capital Eatery residential dining hall. The event featured a Caribbean-themed menu, a dessert “island,” pirate trivia and a demonstration by the Williamsburg Fencing Club. The menu included Jack Sparrow jerk chicken, Pearls of the Sea mini crab cakes, spicy mango salad and spiced banana rum cupcakes. Dining services staff also dressed the pirate part.
