Party on a yacht down the Delaware River in style with a three hour open bar, a dinner buffet, and a live DJ all included with your ticket.

Get ready to celebrate Fall in style. We're teaming up with the Spirit of Philadelphia Cruises to bring you the ninth annual Drink Philly booze cruise.

On Thursday, September 28, prepare to hoist anchor for a three-hour tour of crazy proportions. Kick off Fall in style with our All Black Attire Boat Party. We'll sail down the Delaware River in style with a three-hour open bar featuring craft brews, wine, a select signature cocktail with New Amsterdam Vodka, a dinner buffet, and live DJ, all included with your ticket.

We'll also have some professional photographers on board, so you'll want to slip into your best All Black Attire for the evening. If you're not sure what to wear, we've included some "Pin-spiration" below, and you can check out the photos from last year's cruise here. Boarding for this year's cruise is at 6:30 PM and departure is at 7 PM.
