Goldman Sachs are equal opportunity pirates. Whether it’s raiding the pension funds of the 99%, or pilfering the portfolios of the 1%, their corrupt lending and trading practices and endemic hornswoggling are hurting 100% of us. It’s enough to make a pirate say, “ARRRRR!”

The Jolly Tax Dodger will be taking this message straight to yachts of the 1% on Cinco de Mayo! We’ll be sending out raiding parties to raise awareness about Goldman Sachs and their practices and encourage their clients to divest. Let’s hit Goldman Sachs where it really hurts; the bottom line.

Come get your Arrrrr on! Dress-up in your best pirate garb, grab your sea legs, batten down your hatches, and hit the high seas.

Cinco de Mayo is the unofficial “Opening Day of Boating Season” and sponsored by the Seattle Yacht Club. So they’ll be plenty of 1% timbers to shiver! We’ll have small bags of booty and flyers for people to hand out and toss aboard.

More of a land lubber? No problem! They’ll be a pirate BBQ & picnic happening on the solid ground of Foster Island from 12:00 – 5:30.

What to bring? 

  • A Pirate Costume!
  • A flask of rum!
  • Your best “ARRRRR!”
  • Sunscreen
  • A coat! (Yes, it’s still Seattle in May on the water, “BRRRRR!”)

What not to bring? 

  • Your laptop.
  • Anything you don’t want to get wet.
  • Your annoying friends (leave them at home!)
  • Dogs, while not annoying, will have to stay shoreside.

The Plan:

  • 12:00: Kick off the picnic & BBQ at our secret pirate cove (Foster Island).
  • 2:30: We will be taking to the water dressed as pirates!

Where is this secret pirate cove (A.K.A. Foster Island)
It’s by the Arboretum. If you are driving you can find parking by the MoHAI museum, or the Broadmoor Golf Club at the Foster Island Trail. Google is your friend.

We have fun!
