Though debt riddled gamblers are prone to dining with the fishes, esteemed members of land-society often dine atop the fishes. Today's Groupon merges seafaring and supping: for $49, you get a dinner cruise for two aboard Alabama Cruises’ Southern Belle passenger ship. Dinner cruises, which depart from Bellingrath Gardens and Home in Theodore, are available Fridays and Saturdays from February-November, and nightly in December.
Alabama Cruises takes land dwellers and turns them into river-literate wildlife watchers on one of its many passenger-vessel cruises. The dinner cruise aboard the luxurious Southern Belle is two hours of live entertainment, river-stimulated conversation, and nature ogling. The three-entree meal includes carved roast, chicken Southern Belle, green beans, and bread pudding, which, unlike pudding bread, doesn’t explode upon being bitten. A cash bar allows for wine-generated warm glows, and the ship is temperature-controlled, making mittens unnecessary.
Dinner cruises on the Southern Belle are rain or shine, so you can enjoy a serenely marine excursion even during a foggy flare. Plus, dress is business casual, so guests should save monocles for demolition derbies or election concession parties.
