  1. I’ve always wanted to go on a schooner!

  2. Um, Ok. THAT IS COOL.

  3. Ladies. We have two choices for tuesday night while we have everyone.

    1. we do the Rum Runner Cruise that does this whole 20’s Prohibition Vibe

    OR

    2. We do the Sunset on The Madeleine all classy like

    Which one…cause both have to be booked in advance.

  4. I vote for casual Rum Running over dress up classy, but if the Schooner is casual and serves liquid refreshment, I’m all about it.

    I leave it to up to yous guys, though.
