Free Rum Party NYC Monday 18th on my boat!

I know theres a few New York people lurking here and I wanted to flush them out with free Rum as bait!

Next Monday night 18th of July
6:30pm
79th Street Boat Basin Marina - PARKING AVAILABLE! ($10)
West 79th Street
Manhattan
Ph 718 300 5627

Rum is Mt Gay XO Reserve Cask - yep, the good stuff
Bring your own mixers, beer, wine etc.

My boat is on a mooring and we won't go for a cruise, so I can drink.

So it would be great to meet people as well as catch up with some of the forum people i have met before.

Can't make this one Mark, but we should start up the ditch to New Jersey next week. Maybe cross paths along the way if you're heading south any time soon.

Re: Free Rum Party NYC Monday 18th on my boat!

I am not an Aussie, but I think the right response is: "Good on ya, mate!"

Sounds like a good gathering with good rum and likely fun. I wish I could be there to have a tot of rum and enjoy the company.

Re: Free Rum Party NYC Monday 18th on my boat!

Hi Mark,
mmm ...Been thinking of going up the Hudson later this season...maybe a trial run is in order
(nothing to do with the rum of course).
Mooring usually available at the basin or resv. needed?
Would be great...will know/confirm tomorrow/Sat.

Re: Free Rum Party NYC Monday 18th on my boat!

Hi Mark,
I'm an aspiring boat owner and read the forum daily. I'm hoping that it's okay to come by and meet some real cruisers and ask some questions in addition to having a good time. How does one get to the boat if it's on a mooring? Should I call the number you have listed?

Todd

Best Aussie reply to that is "Cheers" Followed by the Good On ya Mate!

Re: Free Rum Party NYC Monday 18th on my boat!

I was raised to respond to RSVPs whether I was able to attend the generous invitation or to decline if I was not.
From Hobart, Tasmania, please accept our apologies but we shall have to decline the invitation
