Bar Hopping on the Water Labor Day Weekend

  • Sep 1, 2013 · 12:45 PM

Please read. A friend of mine has a boat and we will be bar hopping in Long Beach. I have not done this event for a few years now, it's really fun! I will be collecting $5 per person to cover the high price of gas. Only XLB members can RSVP, NO guests, NO plus ones. First come first serve, only so many can fit on his boat. Please RSVP with a current picture of yourself, not your dog, cat or anything else or you will be removed. BYOB and please bring something to share thats easy to eat and does not require utensils. I will be bringing cups, napkins and plates. If someone can bring water in lieu of something to share please let me know. I will send those of you that have RSVP'ed the secret location, sorry, no crashers allowed.

    Marilyn I can't thank you enough and Captain Carter for a wonderful day! I could not have asked for a better event on a holiday weekend and you did a phenomenal job coordinating, ensuring nobody was left behind and trusting a group of strangers. Thank you for your hospitality and if you want to pursue the aqua link deal we were discussing just message me and I'd be happy to be a co-organizer. :)

      Can relate to that Melissa! Did lots of boating in the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, and lots of summer Ducky Dodge races in Lake Union in Seattle, miss it! This would feel like "home"!

    Mojitos it is! So glad to have "made the cut"! Can't wait for the salt sea air in my face! So this is a long shot but any chance there is another Long Beach lover who is land locked in egad the SFV/Hollywood/Burbank area or adjacent like me who would like to get together for a carpool for this?! Just putting it out then in the off chance!
