Brooklyn Yacht Club Cruisers' Dinner

This has not been my experience in Brooklyn. This is a yacht club of the old tradition. I (and HOBO and H2OBO have been adopted by the club. We have been run into town for food. Today all of us ( and EXCALIBUR) were run into town so we could use the laundromat before our planned departure tomorrow. But last night was the ultimate experience. Wayne ("I'm just a cook - see Assault on a Queen) from the club asked us if we would like a special dinner. We all said yes. So last night we had steak, scallops, potatoes, and lots of wine, beer, alcohol, and great company. What a terrific evening of cruiser comradary.. I know that if I am up this way again I will clearly stop here again.
