Attention all USF swashbucklers in the Big Apple, the USF New York City Alumni Chapter will hold their very own Gasparilla party on Saturday at Van Diemen’s beginning at 2 p.m to celebrate the invasion of Jose Gaspar.

If you can’t be in Tampa for one of the greatest holiday’s on earth, you can still dress and drink like a pirate with fellow Bulls in the area. Cigar City Brewing is sponsoring the event to make it feel even more like home.

There will be great food and drink specials AND NO COVER CHARGE! If you’re not the beer drinking type they will have a special Gasparilla Pirate Punch for you to enjoy.

Costumes are not mandatory, but you can dress like Jose Gaspar himself and you can win the Best Costume prize. There will be raffles and giveaways as well.

Beads? Oh, they’ll have them.

So come get your pirate on even if you’re over 1,000 miles away from the party.
