All Aboard the Booze Cruise

Get on board with Torpedo Factory



    All Aboard the Booze Cruise
    Just remember, the Potomac doesn't count as international waters.

    "Open bar" and "boat" never seem like a wise combination, but we can't keep Torpedo Factory Art Center down. The studio/gallery is going out to sea (OK, out to river) for its second annual Open Bar Boat Cruise.

    Board a double-decker boat -- hope that's not a bad omen -- on Friday at 9 p.m. for a three-hour cruise. Which, by the way, was the exact length of time that Giligan & co. were supposed to be gone.

    Feast yourself on an open bar, heavy appetizers (shrimp cocktail, meats and cheeses, wraps) and oh yeah, did we mention the open bar?

    A DJ will be spinning as you take in the DC skyline from the Potomac (which will probably be a lot more enjoyable than that time you rented the Paddle Boat and splashed around the Tidal Basin algae).

    And hey, Mr. Fancy Pants -- cocktail attire is required.

    The cruise will leave at 9 p.m. from the marina near the Torpedo Factory (105 N. Union St., Alexandria, VA). Party people should arrive by 8:30, and remember to make a reservation first. Tix are $55.
