Our Second Annual Women Who Whiskey: Nautical Edition in June was such a success that we rallied an even bigger group to head Back to the Barge at the end of August!
On a gorgeous late summer evening, just in time for Friday happy hour, we boarded the launch and headed back to our favorite floating establishment, the Honorable William Wall Barge.
We had a sizable group, including a number of our of preferred gentlemen guests, and a few new lady members!
It happened to be on the same day as a celebratory event for that summer's graduating class of junior sailing instructors--many of whom were foreign--so the barge was overrun with tan, sun-streaked, rowdy 20-year-old Irish lads. They were incredibly charming, and unfortunately, incredibly young.
But we managed to entertain ourselves, drinking, chatting, laughing, eating (this time we had the foresight to bring food!), and once again we watched a spectacular sunset descend over the Hudson River.
It was the perfect way to bid adieu to the hot days of summer, drink in hand.
