Celebrating Fall on the River

Many people assume that once the flip-flops are put away it’s time to stop thinking about river cruises, but that’s just not the case. If you’re looking for something to help you celebrate fall or need a last-minute idea for a company/group outing, check out Spirit of New York and New Jersey.

These fall foliage cruises depart from Chelsea Piers in Manhattan and Lincoln Harbor in Weekhawken and offer a lovely way to sightsee and enjoy the autumn colors.

Winter Is in the Air

All planners know the importance of looking ahead—the earlier the details fall into place, the less stress one has to deal with as the event nears.

A smattering of event venues have started holding receptions decorated for holiday parties to give planners an idea of what a holiday event would look like there and to have soirees booked far in advance. We know Christmas in July sounds crazy, but it really is a planner’s dream. With all the heat and sunshine, winter feels light-years away.

Signature Drink - The Peacock Fizz

The Peacock Inn offers that rare combination of a thoroughly modern look with a whisper of the past. Drop in for a drink at the seductive bar or pop in early before reservations at the award-winning restaurant across the hall. Either way, you’ll be in good company; F. Scott Fitzgerald and others used to imbibe here back when it was a speak-easy.

Signature Drink - Spring in St. Tropez

The legendary Ryland Inn has always been a destination restaurant, but with its reopening two years ago, it’s not just the kitchen that’s shaking things up anymore. Patrons travel long distances to sample the cuisine and cocktails, thanks to mixologist Chris James. James, who is something of a celebrity in his own right, won New Jersey’s Iron Shaker (or best bartender) contest late last year. Here, he whets our appetite for spring with a taste of the French Riviera.
