Each year, pirates from each of the seven seas storm the pier of Belmont and invade its shores, dropping anchor and setting up camp. Hundreds of pirates camp out for the weekend selling their wares, eating giant turkey legs, drinking mead and chasing booty.
This year we sent our friend Doug the Millionaire to cover the festivities. We figured he would be a good fit because venture capitalists and pirates are cut from the same cloth--they rape, pillage and over-compensate with large nautical vessels. They both managed to do well in life despite getting mediocre grades in school (they both got High Cs!). Watch our video, as Doug the Millionaire mingles with the pirates and makes it through the whole thing without making one seamen joke!
