Decorated to resemble a pirate's lair, the Funky Pirate lives up to its name -- especially the "funky" part. The Pirate is as far from urbane modern jazz as you can get, so there's no chance you'll confuse it with the Funky Butt, should the latter ever return. The place seems to be perpetually full of loud beer drinkers, and at night it can get jampacked. "Big" Al Carson and the Blues Masters hold court here playing live blues, and Big Al lives up to his name -- especially the "big" part.
