Well, second time was the charm. After a tropical monsoon wiped out their first attempt at a promotional cruise, Cape North Vodka managed to shoehorn in a twilight jaunt around the bottom half of Manhattan for them and a couple dozen of their friends and fans. And me. It was chilly in New York Harbor, and most of the guests wound up in the TV room, but there was some sightseeing to be done for those who were into such things, and while drinking to stay warm is not really the same as drinking to enjoy the spirit, I didn't see anybody complaining too hard.
I've already discussed the vodka itself at reasonable length, but their follow-through and hospitality were greatly appreciated.
