Some of the first customers through the Krispy Kreme doors on Monday morning were looking for hot, glazed bounty on 'Talk Like a Pirate Day.'
“Usually we do this on a weekend, so Friday, Saturday or Sunday, and we usually have a line out the door,” said Krispy Kreme employee Phenix
Even on a Monday, there was no shortage of scallywags and swash bucklers.
'Talk Like A Pirate Day' was the perfect start to a senior year tradition for a group of girls from Riverpoint High.
“We don't have a senior sunrise, so then we decided as friends that we should just get doughnuts and go watch the sunrise,” said high school student and pirate-enthusiast Whitney Moses.
After a quick stop for some last minute garb, the ladies were in business.
“My sister was a pirate last year or a few years ago, so we got the costume, we got the hat, and just made the other things or went to the dollar store,” said Moses.
Now, before you head to Krispy Kreme, a couple of pieces of advice: don't be a slacker pirate. Just throwing on an eye patch won't do it.
“But we tell them in a fun way to try again and they usually come back in the full costume, it's great,” said Phenix.
Dressing up like a pirate will get you a dozen doughnut for free, but you have to have at least three pieces of pirate wear to be official.
Talking like a pirate will get you a single doughnut for free.
Krispy Kreme, located at 15401 E Indiana Ave in Spokane Valley, closes at 10 p.m. on Monday.
