I usually attend multiple events in one night, but on June 21st I was able to thoroughly enjoy one event - New York Water Taxi 10th Anniversary celebration / Tom Fox's retirement. The party was held at the Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club, (formerly Water Taxi Beach, South Street Seaport) north side of Pier 17, at Beekman St.
This is the perfect summer venue - sofas in the sand, food, cocktails and an amazing view!
As I walked in and grabbed a drink, I met Edisa from Delirious Hair Designs. She creates playful, dramatic hairstyles with fun accessories. Some guests with birds, feathers and tiaras in their hair. One of my favorites was a paper lamp shade hat with a light inside it. I opted for a mermaid hairstyle, with coral hair pieces and even a sea creature in my hair.
There were some fun activities, including customized aromatherapy, portraits, drawings and a photo booth.
I quickly had salad, chicken and ribs from the dinner buffet (I would have loved to try the salmon but it was gone in an instant! Must have been good!) and then went on the half hour Statue of Liberty tour hosted by NYWT.
After the Statue of Liberty tour, I enjoyed some chocolate ice cream, cocktails and an exciting fireworks show!
