Despite being known for having the most theaters and broadway showcases, there is no shortage of bars with LIVE music in New York city as well. There is something very different about going to a pub with LIVE music...especially when we have talented artistes and comedians up on stage who are geared to entertain the night away.
A good place to head to with the rented charter bus for a bar crawl or a bachelor party bus get-together is a place called Bowery Ballroom located along Delancey St. between Kenmare St and Bowery, to be exact. The bar is open from 6pm till late into the night, officially it closes at 2am but the bar for most parts remain open because of the patrons and party-goers. The bar has ample space and can accommodate gatherings and large groups so, give them a call if a private space is what you are looking for. The best time to head over to Bowery is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. As it turns out, the main ballroom area has tons of space so that patrons can let their hair down and put on their dancing shoes for some serious dancing when they want to.
Gay bars are not exclusive to the LGBT community because bars like Marie’s Crisis have very regular, friendly and welcoming visitors too. The loyal customers know how to have more fun than anyone else, really. If that is what you are interested in seeing and experiencing during your New York City party bus rental tour vacation, then as soon as the sun starts setting, tell the charter bus driver that you would like to head to Marie’s Crisis on Grove St. in the West Village neighborhood. It is one of those friendly LIVE bar entertainment outlet that is loved in all of Manhattan and the good thing about Marie’s Crisis is that there is no cover charge.
You know how ‘Cheers’ the series made famous local bars with friendly people? How about the cafe that the friends in ‘Friends’ go to for their regular get-togethers? Well, yes, Marie’s Crisis is like that on most nights. A place for friends to hang around and catch up over a couple of drinks while enjoying LIVE entertainment.
The Happy Hour rate during weekday is unbelievable, the drinks are strong. The brew is a sure bet in loosening those knotted muscles that a long and tiring day at work may have caused. And remember to give us a call if a large gathering is what you are organizing. We can't wait to be a part of your party!
For those who are new to Connecticut might find it odd that the residents are so proud and fond of their river Connecticut...but the authorities have always played a huge role in accentuating the fact that the river is a connecting point between the metropolitan Connecticut society and nature. All year round, there are fun activities, games, festivals, gatherings, promotions and kid-friendly exhibitions being held at the river but come July 6, 2013, it would once again be time for jaw-dropping, gorgeous fireworks. It is River Fest time!
For one, admission or watching the games and contests being held during this festival is completely free of charge, there is no admission fee. At the venue along the river, there are activities like lumber jack competition, live entertainment, kids activities, rowing competition and also a spectacular water ski show that never fails to awe even people who have seen the shows year after year.
The fireworks, which is the highlight of the festival, is usually scheduled to go off at the strike of 9pm on that night so, be there early if you want to reserve a space for your family and friends. The festival is official on the road at 4pm sharp. If the entrance at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza is packed, we reckon you can get in more easily through the Great River Park entrance. Just get the Connecticut party bus driver to drop you off in East Hartford.
For this year’s participants, there is something new to look forward to - a new UConn Timber Sports competition which will see lumberjacks show off their unique techniques which includes modern and traditional techniques. For urbanites, this is quite an eye-opening experience, to be honest. It is exciting to watch them saw it off using different techniques but it goes to show that despite it being a profession that few people actually know or care about, they are completely in control of their work and the techniques are jaw-droppingly accurate. This year, there will be men and women in the mixed team contest and they will be fighting for the coveted titles this year.
Another highlighted feature of River Fest is the water ski show. The ski show is done by none other than the Oxbow team of performers who are all pumped to show off their best moves for the pyramids, ballet, skiing, and jetski shows.
At the point of writing this, the schedule’s not been updated and we suggest that our Connecticut party bus rental customers check their website at RiverFront.org for detailed itinerary and show schedules.
Is your prom creeping up on you and you are wondering if this is the right time to book yourself in for a spa session? Or maybe you are all stressed out about your upcoming wedding reception and are desperately in need of some really good pampering. If that is the case, we have some spas and salons recommended for you, our loyal Denver party bus rental customers and blog readers. Bear in mind that you will need to read up on the online reviews on your own before heading over because everyone’s perception, review and feedback is different - hence, we encourage you to read up on the suggestions before heading over.
We have heard random raving reviews about Voila Salon, Spa and Parfumerie which is located along Curtis St in the Five Points neighborhood. Professionalism and experience is an important thing to consider when it comes to spa selection. You are entrusting a stranger with your face, skin, hair and nails. You need to know that the people are well-trained about delivering on their promise. The people at Voila Spa are apparently well-trained to start work on complete strangers because they let you pick the stylist that you want, even if you are a walk-in who have never been there before. So, there is no preferential treatment to contend with. What is important is that the staff are thought to listen to your thoughts, requirements AND pay attention to your worries. After listening to what you have to say, the staff will give you a couple of suggestions to ponder and there you have it....your new look!
We know that planning for a prom Denver party bus gathering can be stressful and you know what stress can do to your skin, so book yourself in for a series of skim pampering session about a week before the wedding reception. If possible book a day spa which means a WHOLE DAY worth of proper TLC! A much deserved one, we are sure. We have heard from our party bus rental customers that you can get exactly that, for a fraction of the usual price, at Synergy Salon and Spa. Apart from the day spa, book up their individual massage sessions that last for sixty or ninety minute pampering sessions. If you need to add more time, you can add up with fifteen minute block time upgrade.
Don’t let the stress of organizing a prom or wedding affect the way you look on your special day. Please do book the wedding limousine through our special Denver party bus limousine rental packages so that we can take the load of ground transportation off of you. We hope to hear from you real soon.
It has been said before (but we will say it again), if you want to the dirty details about a locality, the best way to do it is...to do it THEIR way, instead of doing the touristy thing that most of the time aimed at foreign visitors. But if the curious you is starting to get just a wee bit tired of the fanfare, then give this a shot - bird-watching.
And the locals call the bird-watching activity ‘birding’ and it is one of the most popular ‘sport’ in the state of Arizona. Phoenix locals are also quick to jump at the chance to go birding with their best pals during the weekends or off days. The reason behind why the activity is popular is because of the multifaceted terrain that is so Phoenix and this fact lends to the fact that birds flock over seasonally. On last count, according to experts, there are now more than five hundred different species of birds right here in Phoenix alone.
If you have a local tour guide to help you out, he or she may help you catch sight or catch on photograph the Arizona state bird called the cactus wren. The name tells you that the beak on this bird is curved but they are quite small birds, making it hard to catch without a good pair of binoculars. You don’t need to climb very hike up very far because the birds prefer to make their homes where it is four thousand in elevation. They don’t like to get too close to people (they are considered introverted but loud and noisy birds) so, getting an up close and personal look at them. Catching them in action on your camera should suffice.
There are countless places for birding activities and they include some far-flung places (but they are worth visiting, though, because some offer more than just the opportunity to chill with the birds but also some wine-tasting and hiking) like Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Oak Flat Campground, Burro Creek Recreation Area and also not forgetting places like Desert Botanical Garden, Pima Canyon and Gilbert Ponds. Get a guide if you are traveling and doing this alone. Another great option would be to take on a photo tour on the Riparian Preserve right along the Water Ranch. The Preserve is managed by a group of environmentally-friendly activists from the Town of Gilbert. Once you are done with bird watching and taking photos, a respite can be found at the nearby lake and do some fishing.
So, don’t miss the chance to get up close and personal...not with the birds, but at least with Mother Nature.
After a night out with your friends and family members, whether you are there for a large birthday gathering, a wedding anniversary, a business socializing event, a bachelor or bachelorette party, one thing is for sure…food sounds like a good idea. While there are many eateries in and around the downtown Fort Lauderdale area that remain open to the public after the sun has gone down because they wish to cater to pub crawlers and party goers, word has it that Slice Pizzeria Restaurant is quite hard to beat.
As far as location is concerned, it is on the dot because it is parked right smack in the middle of Shoppes at City Park which makes it easy to find. The restaurant is located on SE 1st Street. But that also means you will need to get in as early as you can if a table is what you are looking for. The joint is open in the early hours of the morning for breakfast and later on, for lunch.
The restaurant manages to balance out quality and pricing and they have it down pat as far as portion is concerned. If you there for the first time, give their gourmet sandwiches a shot…it is hard to go wrong with their Roast Turkey with brie, in fact. Absolutely mouth-watering! Other popular options include their Roast beef and blue cheese where every bite is said to be delectable and heavenly. While the attention should be given to the main dish, we reckon you might want to give their soups a try too…and they have many to choose from. From Thai chicken curry (if you have the palate for spicy stuff in the morning) to Tomato Bisque, there are soups of all kinds in their menu.
Don’t know what to order form the large number of options? Worry not, the friendly staff will not hesitate to point you in the right direction. After all, they know best about which item on their menu is fast-selling. The best thing about Slice Pizzeria is the price – it’s affordable and caters for large group gatherings. The unfortunate thing about having a group gathering in Slice Pizzeria is that they do not take bookings. But all is well if you head over bright and early first thing they open for business at 10am, then. If you are wondering if Slice is kid-friendly, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’. In fact, looking at the things that they have on the menu, the kids might end up falling move in love with it than the grownups are!
Have a good time during your Fort Lauderdale party bus visit!
Located slightly on the south side of the country most certainly has its benefits - warm weather all year round and of course, endless trails of beaches is just another one of those benefits that Mother Nature has decided to give the Miami locals. That is the precise reason why people love to bring their rented party buses to Miami for their beach parties. As the temperature drops in other parts of the country, the number of celebrations related to birthdays, proms, bachelor or bachelorette parties increase tremendously!
Miami stands at being the eighth most populous cities in the country and it faces the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean. To see how much the locals love their beaches, try hitting one of the beaches during a weekday - they continue to be crowded with people from all walks of life, be it local residents, holiday-goers or foreign visitors! So, it would be strange to find a Miami beach completely stranded, in all honesty.
Made out of the 2nd most number of Cuban-American populations, the diverse culture and multi-ethnicity of the city of Miami makes a party bus trip here even more exciting and educational. Through the hotbed of culture, you will get to learn more about and adapt to their lifestyle - which is eye-opening, to say the very least.
The Miami port is not called the cruise capital of the world for nothing, mind you, it is one of the busiest ports in the world and it serves both import-export industry and passenger/tourism industry at the same time which explains why it is one the busiest ports.
Along the coastline, you can easily locate and rent out a beach house to have your party or gathering. After a languid day of sunbathing, swimming, trying out some watersport, and perhaps some surfing (If time permits. There are just too many things to do that sometimes you will find yourself spoilt for choice), come back into the rented beach house and it is time to get the barbeque going.
As night falls and the sound of waves lends the atmosphere a calming and relaxing sound, the mood is set. Get the drinks out, dig into the party comfort food, pull out the guitar and the party will soon head towards an unforgettable climax. A climax that you will most probably remember for a long time to come.
Another good reason why people love having their party bus rental beach party in Miami is because renting out a party bus or a beachside property is easy and affordable. Unlike other cities in the country where the property rental market isn’t as saturated, the beach house rental industry here in Miami is extremely competitive. And this can only mean one thing for holiday-goers and the everyday tourists - affordable travel!
Lonely Planet’s review goes along the lines of ‘sleep in if you want’ quite accurately describes how The Flying Biscuits’ menu is not just a place for breakfast. Their all-day-long morning menu goes around the clock and the cafe serves up a storm of yummy vegetarian-friendly breakfast meals like omelets, oatmeal pancakes, tomatoes and a string of no frills fanfare of amazing grills. Of course, The Flying Biscuit would not be The Flying Biscuits if not for their famous fluffy biscuits and diverse choice of breads to go with the breakfast dishes. With all things said and done, our Atlanta party bus rental customers reckon that having their ‘breakfast meals’ for lunch and dinner is quite filling and adequate as well because of the huge portion of food.
One of the things that one notices about the customers is that they are just a happy, easy-going bunch of people who truly knows how to enjoy their food, albeit the healthy way. They understand and promotes healthy eating to patrons who are not vegetarians too so that we can simply enjoy the black bean quesadillas and burgers completely guilt-free.
According to fans of the place, one of the best traits about eating in The Flying Biscuit is that it is strategically-located, straddling a cozy neighborhood and adjacent to a bustling city center on Northside Pkway in Buckhead. For those who prefer to eat on-the-go, it is even more memorable to take away and then head over to the nearby Candler Park to slowly digest and enjoy the meal, all this while people-watching. Although finding the place is easy but the long queues, especially during breakfast and lunch hours is quite long, so please do be patient and trust that the food will be worth the wait in the end. This is a franchise outlet, therefore, you can expect the same consistency when visiting The Flying Biscuit in other locations in other parts of the country.
For those who are looking for a romantic night out with your partners, family and friends, The Flying Biscuit could be the wrong choice. What they offer is good food, prompt service and a laid-back atmosphere. Yes, it is extremely kid-friendly too and you can bet your bottom dollar that the little ones will not hesitate to lick up every last bite of great comfort foods like creamy white cheddar cheese grits or the famous flying biscuit meals served with your favorite jams or honey.
While The Flying Biscuits is banking on their loyal customers and local residents loyalty for business, it is on the receiving end of internet popularity too, so much so that foreign visitors DO come here in large groups during their Atlanta party bus tour.
That is, indeed, the great thing about the internet - good things will go viral.
There is no shortage of options for those who are looking for a great night spot for a bachelor party, bachelorette party or gathering amongst friends. Detroit party bus rental Visitors from all walks of life will come alive and celebrate in earnest the very moment the sun goes down, the same way the night scene comes alive in many other large, major cities in and around the United States.
One good example would be Luna where they claim that the atomic bass beats will mercilessly invade your senseless and leave their guests breathless at the end of the night. Luna is located on N. Main Royal Oak and rings slightly of the old-school beat bass. The theme is almost always retro and techno so, the atmosphere is a pulsating one that will have patrons putting on their dancing shoes and hitting the dance floor. The Luna, at the point of writing this article, opens its doors from 9pm right down to the early morning hours. There is no restaurant or kitchen in Luna but there is most definitely a full bar that serves you a wide variety of concocted drinks while you enjoy the hip hop, house, alternative, dance and electronica music that the DJ spins you.
Tonic is another fantastic night spot to dance your troubles away. This authentically individualistic nightspot can be found on Saginaw-Pontiac and they are ever ready to help you relax yourself and dance the night away. It seems to be one of the best places to be in Pontiac Detroit for a great time with VIPs, friends, family or to head to during a Detroit party bus bar crawl. The great thing about Tonic is that it is spacious, being housed in a multi-storey building boasting of multiple dance floors within the same premise. Detroit party bus rental guests who are not into dancing can find a relaxing lounge equipped with modern facilities which includes television and leather sofas on the upper floors of the building. The admission fee varies according to what you intend to do at the club but the dance and DJ service is most definitely worth every single cent spent there. It was reported that the DJ serves up a whole host of Top 40 music, hip hop, rock and techno as well.
V at MGM Grand Detroit is another force to be reckoned with. The bar is located inside of the casino club and is famous for the hottest scene deserving of locals and visitors from out of town alike. The admission fee of $10 and $20 for women and men means that you will get to mingle around with hundreds of party-goers every night. On Fridays, however, the DJ is inclined to spin more 80’s music than Top 40 music.
With places like this, we say it is most definitely time to put on your dancing shoes!
Baltimore may not be known for being the most visited cities in the country nor is it known for beautiful landscapes and quality attractions. But, for the record, Baltimore does have quite a long list of ‘firsts’ in the country.
For example, Baltimore was the first city in the whole of United States to come up with their very own professional sports organization in 1743. The Maryland Jockey Club was, much to many people’s surprise was founded before the Revolutionary War and is known as the oldest sporting organization in the whole of North America. It is something that many local residents are incredibly proud of, and they have the right to be so.
Other firsts for Baltimore includes having the first Post Office system in 1774 and the progressive people of Baltimore also created the first cross-state route which runs from Baltimore to Philadelphia. in 1773.
A more significant first for Baltimore is the first American warship to capture an enemy vessel - the Constellation which captured an enemy war ship despite it being a single-gundeck sloop war ship. The Constellation is the second American war ship to carry the same name, though, but despite that the role that it played during war remains significant to this very day.
And who would have thought that Baltimore is the first city to actually have their own umbrella factory in American soil way back in 1828. William Beehler was an innovative man and saw the needs to mass-create umbrellas....well, because people need umbrellas. There you have it....a need fulfilled.
In the 1830’s, Baltimore recorded two firsts, which is Tom Thumb coming up with the first ever coal-burning locomotive and the Baltimore authorities coming up with the first operating railroad depot at the Mt. Clare Station. It might seem like an insignificant implications today but back then when traveling and transportation was at its very basics, this was a much well-received news from locals and other Americans alike.
Moving on about ten years later, Baltimore had the first dental college...not in the United States but the first dental college in the WORLD which is called the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. And then within the same year, Baltimore Steam Packets Co became the first American steamboat making company.
Many years down the road, in 1966, Baltimore started becoming more well-known on the sporting front and Frank Robinson became the first ever baseball player to be named an MVP for both minor and major leagues, this is the kind of establishments that can only be achieved by really motivated, talented and incredibly focused individuals.
As you can see, Baltimore’s rich culture is reflected in the many ‘firsts’ that it has achieved over the years and knowing these facts, it makes visiting a local museum a much more interesting visit, doesn’t it?
After the long winter months, we are sure San Diego is ready to peel back all the layers of clothing and finally find the chance to head outdoors for some fun! Spring time in San Diego is all about endless beautiful beaches, picnics in the parks and enjoying a languid time together with family and friends in a local attraction. Somehow, with spring in the air, the blossoms are out in full bloom while the animal exhibits in zoos and aquariums are also more active.
Not only do photographers love places like The Flower Fields of Carlsbad and Anza-Borrego State Park, the kids will too! There is something about the splashes of color that the flowers in full bloom automatically puts the spring back into your steps.
San Diego’s Seaword, if you don’t already, celebrated the birth of a new baby killer whale in February and is ready for the world. Apart from being the largest sea animal there is in the world, the baby killer whales are instant hits with babies, toddlers and little ones.
Seaworld is not the only theme park celebrating a new addition it seems, because the San Diego Zoo Safari Park also welcomed a new baby southern white rhino the same month this year! Under the watchful eyes of its caretakers, the zoo announced the birth to locals and proudly told the world that the baby weighed an astonishing one hundred and twenty five pounds....yes, at birth.
More recently, in the month of March 2013, Legoland introduced a new 4D exhibit called the Legend of Chima. The 4D exhibit is based solely on LEGO-made enchanting TV series of the same name. Chima lives in a land of mythical animals and they formed tribes over Chi, an energy can gives power to the animals, and the same power can be used to power their own vehicles. When the kids enter the exhibit, they will get the chance to join in on the battle and be surprised with the ultimate battle between Laval the Lion Prince and Cragger crocodile.
It IS spring time so, the San Diego is offering something fun for the kids too as they turn the zoo into a huge playground for the young ones through an extensive playtime program called the San Diego Zoo Play Days. Throughout spring, visitors can expect non-stop presentations, food features, opportunities to get up close and personal with the animals and also enjoy special activities featuring some of the animals in the zoo.
