Claus & Claws

  • Because we can’t resist a great pun… we’re making one exception to our “locals only” beverage policy this season. Claus & Claws is our newest theme, in which we encourage guests to “BYO Beard” and dress up as their favorite form of Santa (Hipster Santa, Dapper Santa, Tiki Santa, etc.). Each guests will also receive two White Claws to kick off the festivities- we’re dreaming of a White (Claw) Christmas!

Drag Queen Caroling 

December 22nd, 2:30-4:30pm

Join our resident Drag Queen, the lovely Colleen Deforrest, as she leads multiple rounds of caroling from the upper deck of the boat!
