For years, hedonists have enhanced the flavors of roasted meats and cheeses by feasting atop the supportive waves of their waterbeds. Set your dining experience afloat with today's Groupon: for $50, you get two dinner-cruise tickets to the Tunica Queen Riverboat (a $102 value), located on the river at Riverpark Drive.
The two-hour cruise is scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m., depart at 7 p.m., and return at 9 p.m., affording passengers plenty of time to successfully saturate taste buds, ear buds, and dance buds. As you set off into the sunset backdrop on the Mississippi River, the wafting aromas of a feast prepared onboard will tempt a range of palates. Select from salads, hot entrees, carving stations, and sides; choices include prime rib, roasted turkey, red beans and rice, steamed seasonal vegetables, and seasoned potatoes. Complimentary coffee, soft drinks, and tea abound, and tipplers can head to the cash bar for a classic cocktail. Panoramic windows, two enclosed decks, and two outdoor decks showcase the historic waterfront unfolding in front of you as live music invites dance muscles to twitch rhythmically under the stars.
Most people experience natural scenery on land. Whether going to work, driving across town, or selling stolen DVDs on street corners, there's no opportunity to sit back and soak in all that's Memphis. Even tourists commonly spend their time rushing from attraction to attraction without taking in the bigger picture. A cruise with Tunica Queen Riverboat provides a fresh perspective that even the oldest Memphis resident (Mary Higgins, 47) can appreciate. Call ahead to schedule a reservation.
