Thanks B - I've been to a few of the Beaujolais events in NYC in the past. They throw some decent events - last one I attended was on a boat! Never been to a Nouveaux one though.

Boat Parties are great to begin with but a Boat Wine Party must be the tops!! Let me know if you go, would be interested to see how it is.

The boat wine party was good - it was lat year, and during the summer. I wouldnt want to go in this weeks weather! I remember a lot of the women were in high heels, and after 2 hours of drinking really struggled to stay upright as the boat lolled on the occasional wave...

Hmmm... that's tempting. I may have to gauge interest among my compatriots.
