Ohio River Riverboat Dinner Cruise
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm / Boarding Starting at 6:00 pm
Location: BB Riverboats, Newport, Kentucky
Food: Slow roasted beef brisket, roast herb seasoned chicken, pasta primavera with fresh vegetables, southern style green beans, twice baked potato casserole, tossed mixed greens with choice of dressings, assorted accoutrements, fresh baked dinner rolls with butter, coffee or tea, and chef’s choice of dessert.
After a cool, cloudy day filled with drizzle, the evening turned nice. We started boarding the “River Queen” at 6:00 pm and officially kicked off our reunion. We had a total of 15 persons on the cruise including classmates and spouses/guests. After a 60 minute cocktail hour with lots of conversation, the boat left the dock and we were on our way.
Immediately after leaving the dock, we enjoyed a great buffet dinner, ending with some wonderful deserts. After that, as we slowly moved up the beautiful Ohio River, a DJ played music as we continued our conversations with a little dancing thrown in at times. The highlight of this evening was watching our esteemed Senior Class President Alan Siebe, and his wife Gail, dance the Macarena (an encore performance was seen at the Saturday night event). Our very enjoyable evening ended around 9:30 pm with the spectacular Cincinnati night skyline visible across the river as we arrived back at the dock.
