Apalachicola boats debut ‘booze cruise’

There were luminary hijinks on the Apalachicola River Friday night when a group of local boaters staged an impromptu procession/ bar crawl they named the first ever “River of Lights Booze Cruise.” Grayson Shepard said the plan was formed during a discussion at a social gathering last week. The only bar open on the river this week was the Roseate Spoonbill Lounge so, after parading to the Mill Pond and back, the revelers paused for a refresher and a quick rumba on Jerry Weber’s houseboat and then crawled to the Spoonbill for more of the same. Five boats, including Jay Kannuck’s in photo above, participated in this year’s spectacle. Organizers say it will be bigger and better next year.
