Yo-Ho-Ho and a Schooner called FAME

The Schooner FAME has added a special cruise to its October schedule!  This Saturday, October 22 at 4:00 PM the FAME shall set sail with ample parts rum and entertainment on deck. 

Here's the scoop from Captain Mike:

Rum and sailors have always gotten along like wind and water! Molasses imported from the West Indies was being distilled into rum in New England from the earliest colonial times, and rum was the basis for many of the libations imbibed by the Sons of Liberty as they plotted to push Massachusetts into open rebellion against the Crown.

On this cruise, you'll have the opportunity to sample contemporary beverages, hear Tobias Tripp squeeze out 18th-century songs on his fiddle and squeezebox, and even dance a hornpipe! Revolutionary beverages based on rum & wine will be available for $5; soda and water are also available for $2.

FAME is a replica of a privateer schooner from the War of 1812. During the Revolution and the War of 1812, hundreds of privateers sailed from New England ports to strike a blow for liberty. Come see what all the fuss was about! Sing the songs, drink the drinks, dance the dances, and sail the schooners that helped earn us our independence from Great Britain!
