Rock the Boat

Bash Events is hosting another crazy party with the Jose Cuervo Rock the Boat spectacular taking place on Saturday, July 30th. 400 guests are invited to party on a 170-foot three level yacht with 4 DJ's playing the hottest top 40 pop music, acid blues, Celtic R&B and bluegrass techno that you never heard in your life! Of course everything sounds good when you're drunk on a yacht. Complimentary Jose Cuervo margaritas and a sandwich bar will keep the party going until Somali pirates arrive and hijack the boat.

Pre-register ASAP because the list will close by July 25th or as soon as capacity is reached. Technically this event is for people who work in the hospitality industry so feel free to pretend like you're a douche bag tour guide for one of those Segway rental companies.

Registration 9:30AM


Be sure to arrive EARLY!
