There’s nothing like summer weekends in general, but down by the Peconic River in Riverhead, they’re taking TGIF to a whole different level with Friday Moonlight Cruises.
The East End has all the necessary ingredients to create a memorable Friday night: the intimate Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat, owned by Long Island Aquarium; and the Seaside Grill and Hyatt Place East End right next door. The Moonlight Cruise boards behind the Seaside Grill as the sun sets; you then enjoy fruit, cheese and wine from accompanied by music and the sounds of a summer evening on the river. It’s all very fun, and very tranquil.
Cruise runs from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm and is adults only. Tickets are $39.95 per person. Since the Seaside Grill is where the boat boards, you might want to start with dinner there; book the cruise and you’ll receive a 10% discount for that evening. Reservations required – call 631.208.9200, ext. 426 or see website.
