It’s often said that what matters is the singer, not the song, which is why music fans are still moved by Bing Crosby’s rendition of “99 Bottles of Beer.” Savor a voice that could sing the phone book with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $38, you get a Manhattan-skyline dinner cruise aboard the Jewel yacht with a musical performance by Pepito Gómez (an $85 value). The cruise begins boarding at 7 p.m. and sets sail at 8 p.m. Choose between the following dates:
- Wednesday, September 21
- Friday, September 23
Each dinner cruise includes the following:
- A full buffet dinner
- A live musical performance by Pepito Gómez
- A beginners’ salsa-dancing class
The Jewel takes to the waterways around Manhattan from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. as Pepito Gómez's traditional Cuban melodies radiate from bow to stern. Wielding his experience performing internationally as well as numerous accolades and staring-contest victories, Gómez boasts a soulful tenor that has garnered the admiration of the Buena Vista Social Club's Omara Portuondo. Dulcet tones wash over the yacht's hull as passengers take in the moon-kissed skyline from one of the vessel's two decks, ensuring plentiful space for up to 300 guests or one lonely brontosaurus. A full dinner buffet subdues unruly hunger pangs, and a beginning salsa lesson loosens joints while bestowing dance knowledge.
