Light The Candles: A Hanukkah Concert

All Aboard For The Christmas Eve Dinner Cruise
Take to the local waters for a four-course meal in an intimate setting. Maybe you haven’t made any plans for Christmas Eve yet, but know you don’t want to stay in that evening. Perhaps you’ve promised not to sit through yet another Christmas Eve dinner with Uncle Fred, who wears ugly sweaters and incessantly talks with his mouth full of turkey. Consider 2011 the year you treat yourself to a yacht dinner cruise.
