For Talk like a Pirate Day:
In observance of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, Telltale will be giving away the first episode of Tales of Monkey Island.Less enjoyable probably but still topical:
Gamers looking for this free booty should set their compasses towards Telltale’s “Play Like A Pirate” website starting at 8 p.m. Eastern Friday (that’s midnight UTC) to nab the download. A classic Monkey Island game will be discounted on Saturday as well. The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, LucasArts’ re-release of the 1990 original created by Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman, will be half off for the iPhone and iPod Touch (via the Apps Store) and PC (via Steam and Direct2Drive).
North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh is offering free admission to those dressed as pirates.
There's a pub-crawl in Phoenix, AZ and I'm sure lots lots more...
