Pop-up casino in Brooklyn? What? Not only can you gamble at this pirate-themed carnival, you can also snag prizes from its silent auction, join in on a Texas Hold 'Em tournament, booze out at the open bar and dance like a money-hungry pirate to bands like the Rusty Guns—or you could just dance like a normal person. All money earned during the event goes to supporting the Brooklyn-based Letter of Marque Theater Company, so you'd even be doing charity!
