The Details

What can guests expect? A scenic 90-minute cruise for women aboard the Patriot provides the backdrop for a wonderful evening filled with good conversation, delicious wine tastings, and the most devine tapas menu -- all to benefit Talbot Humane and Talbot Hospice. Live music provided by local singer-songwriter Emma Myers. Upon departure, guests will receive a custom-designed cookie!

Food and drinks? The evening's menu, thoughtfully designed specifically for the cruise by Stewart's Catering offers six tapas stations, boasting crab shooters, lamb gyro with mint tzatziki, shrimp salad toast, fried brie in puff pastry, served with a peanut and golden raisin chutney, and more. Guests will also enjoy wine pairings, courtesy of the St. Michaels Winefest's favorite labels. And the dessert menu, crafted by Y Knot, will satisfy even the sweetest sweet tooth! 

What about parking? There's plenty of complimentary parking in the nearby Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum lot, located a short walk from the dock.

Are tickets still available? Tickets remain, but they're moving quickly, so if you haven't yet purchased yours, don't delay! Tickets are $75/person. Visit or call Betsy Griffin at 443-239-0307. Please note: Tickets WILL NOT be sold the day of the event; tickets WILL NOT be available at the door.

The dress code? Although it's been hot and humid recently, it can be pretty breezy on the boat! We recommend casual layers to fight off any wind, along with a pair of sturdy boat shoes that can navigate a short boat ramp!

Where do the proceeds go? A portion of the proceeds benefit Talbot Hospice and Talbot Humane.
