Whereas tattered ragamuffins with gambling hands are prone to dining with the fishes, it’s the esteemed members of land society who dine atop the fishes. Merge seafaring and supping proclivities with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a sunset cruise on June 4, including dinner, two drink tickets, and dancing (a $145 value), from Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters at Jefferson Beach Marina in St. Clair Shores.
An award-winning special-event venue, Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters ushers guests across the waters of Lake St. Clair aboard the 138-foot, three-decked Ovation yacht. At 7 p.m., partiers climb onto the watercraft to enjoy a menu of gourmet edibles and DJ-spun sounds. As eyes feast on the bobbing Detroit skyline and watch the orange sky drench ripply waters in its juicy rays, stomachs stuff themselves with an array of edibles and two complimentary drinks, with more available from a full-service cash bar. Engage in friendly dinner conversation while relaxing on the ship’s imported Italian furniture, or devise a plan with friends to stage a UFO hoax with life preservers. After dinner, cruisers are invited to kick off their sea legs and engage in hearty fun-having at the no-cover, no-line after-party on the boat’s very own dance floor, accommodating numerous dancers or a few big, red Clifford dogs.
