River Yacht Club’s Memorial Day Weekend ‘Rock My Boat’ Party
We are big fans of River yacht Club as you can see from our review. Escape the madness of South Beach this Memorial Day Weekend at the oasis on the Miami River that is River Yacht Club (RYC). Not typically open on Mondays, it will celebrate the arrival of summer in style with a two-day, backyard-style barbeque.
The larger than life “Rock My Boat” Sunday brunch party will be packed with entertainment and amazing food and drink specials. In addition to their seafood-centric a la carte and brunch menus, a grilling station will be positioned outside, serving up delicious items such as fresh Maine lobster, Korean-style BBQ short ribs, Florida Yellowtail snapper, ginger barbeque half chicken and colossal tiger shrimp. For this weekend only, a variety of tacos including beef, chicken and octopus will be available at a taco stand.
What better way to welcome summer than a bottle of Moet Chandon special for just $80? Guests can expect drink specials all weekend long including the Iron Man, with Don Julio, organic lemonade, cucumber and charred rosemary; and the ‘Merica, with Ketel One, watermelon pulp, pressed lime and Thai basil. An adult lemonade and ‘make your own crab apple’ stand is sure to be a favorite among guests.
The epic backyard event will feature entertainment provided by DJ Jessica Who on Sunday and DJ Aloona and Yez on Monday, along with stilt walkers and surprise guests.
To commemorate Memorial Day, RYC will donate 10% of food and beverage sales to the Wounded Warriors Project, a nonprofit organization who honor and empower wounded warriors by providing free programs, support, and services to injured veterans, their families, and caregivers.
Brunch hours for Sunday, May 28 and Monday, May 29 are noon – 10PM. For reservation please call 305.200.5716 or visit www.riveryachtclub.com.
