on friday, july 31st . . .

you are invited to join us as we

take a moonlight cruise on the hudson

river, with the majestic manhattan skyline as

our backdrop. let us 'shanghai' you and take you

hostage for an evening of music, cocktails, glamour,


OLD SCHOOL will be playing hot new orleans jazz and

jumping ragtime from the 1920s and 1930s. this late-night

cruise will be on the "clipper city tall ship"', a pre - civil war

era style sailboat that's 158 feet long and a stunning 120 feet

high. it will carry us beneath bridges and around manhattan

from 11:30pm to 1:45am, though the party will start around

11pm on the dock. i hope you can join us for a lovely night

of music and moonlight. dressy and/or vintage attire is

suggested. though we won't be enforcing a dress code

for this soirée, it would be appreciated if no t-shirts,

jeans, or tennis shoes be worn. you'll have more

fun if you dress up, i promise! the weather

should be amazing, and the views of

the statue of liberty, simply


moonlight and music on the hudson

is not a shanghai mermaid, but a different,

much smaller event, created in the same spirit

of celebration, as we travel together

to another time and place.

i look forward to seeing you!

and if you won't be there this friday

night, there will be more sailboat soirées . . .
