September was a crazy fun month as LBPP celebrated our 5th annual Talk Like A Pirate Day Party which was held at Clancy's in Long Beach. This year the holiday fell on a Sunday so we kept it kinda low key, but everyone had a blast. With a great line up of all local bands, tons of free pirate swag, and cheap cold beer on tap how could you go wrong.

Then it happened. Following a brief environmental plug, the… Continue

Late again and this time it cost me! As we walked down towards Gladstones I realized how incredibly packed this small harbor was. The lighthouse park where I had originally intended to set up was so thick with people you couldn't even tell they were standing on grass! Long Beach set a record for the RedBull Flugtag in attendance, with over 105,000, but there were no flight records set as not ONE team achieved successful flight. It was funny as hell though… Continue
