It’s that time of year again to take the Blues Cruise. The popular Soulard Blues Band will be entertainment that night so have your dancing shoes ready to go on August 21st.
Many of you have gone before but here is the scoop for newcomers and a reminder to all. This is a three hour cruise on the Mississippi leaving from the riverfront aboard the Becky Thatcher or Huck Finn riverboat. While on board you can dance to the music and see the skyline of St. Louis from the top deck. We always have a blast when we go.
The particulars – Cost is $18.00 and everyone is on their own to acquire their tickets. The number to call is[masked]-1410. This the ticket price only. There is a cash bar and a few concessions. The boat leaves promptly at 8:00pm and waits for no one. There is no reserved seating and we will be down there early to try and get in line to grab some tables but any early goers will help. We will try to get tables near the entrance on the right.
I can’t emphasize enough to get your tickets early!!!!!!!!!!! These cruises usually are sellouts when Soulard Blues is playing.As of today (7/8) tickets were available. If you wait to the last minute it may be too late (it happened last year). Dress is almost anything you want. I have seen shorts and blue jeans to dress coats and cocktail dresses.
There is parking on the levee right by the boat or the Arch garage. The boats and ticket office are right down the hill from the south leg of the arch on the river.
Hope to see you there. Post if you have questions or want to car pool.
