Partying outside of the house means you won't have to articulate to the landlord what inspired you to dye the carpet an uneven sangria. Paint the town red with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a three-hour after-work cruise including dinner and dancing for two from Above All Cruises (a $70 value.)
Above All Cruises' staff launches party-goers into a whirlwind night of dinner and staggering views of the city's skyline aboard their fleet of soiree vessels. Revelers board the sleek Harbor Lights cutter, which sports multiple decks, handsome dining rooms, and cash bar serving wine, beer, and drinkable dollar bills. Power up for three hours of harvesting eats from the hot buffet, which typically serves pasta, chicken breast, roasted potatoes, and marinated stilettos. An on-deck barkeep kindles carousal with an array of wines, sodas, and beers for an additional fee. As the ship is entirely enclosed, passengers can catch a groove regardless of the weather and feel comfortable to don whatever evening wear inspires the mood for revelry, whether that's casual togs, a nightclub getup, or a costume from Cats. After-work cruises conquer the harbor on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but savvy sailors should consult the schedule before planning a trip.
Above All Cruises
The advocates of ocean-based travel at Above All Cruises unveil awe-inspiring views of New York City's sprawling skyline during weekly and holiday cruises that set sail out of Skyport Marina or World's Fair Marina. Rather than engaging in terra firma's exhausting recreational activities, such as hiking or the Running of the Taxis, visitors can while away the evening in one of three luxury ships: Lucille, Paddlewheel Queen, and Harbor Lights. Although each vessel flaunts its own personality and design, all three sport dance floors, flat-screen TVs, and hunger-quelling dinners. Experienced captains ensure that cruises always stay on course, and equally experienced DJs keep dance floors afloat with energetic songs.
