Circle Line's Phantom Masquerade Cruise

There’s nothing quite like your first Broadway show. Everything, from the booming show tunes to the intricate set design, is made to dazzle you. You can’t help but fill with a hope for magic, so tangible it is merely a stage away. Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises invites you to relive that same nostalgia this Halloween weekend, for a chance to win tickets to our most beloved Broadway sensation, Phantom of The Opera.

In awed celebration of its 10,000th performance, you’ll don that impeccable costume you scoured for all month, and make your way over to Pier 83 for a naughty three-hour night cruise. There, you’ll delight on complimentary champagne (from B. Smith’s Restaurant), or if your tastes are skewed toward Oktoberfest, you’ll delight on Heartland Brewery’s top two brews, Smiling Pumpkin Ale and Grateful Red Lager. You’ll cruise the New York Harbor while dancing to top hits by VJ Randy Esulto, until the costume contest where the winner will receive a pair of tickets to the 10,000th performance of Phantom. That’s right, for a $40 ticket, you’ll not only have an incredible Halloween Saturday night, you’ll also have a chance to see the best show on the Broadway block. Snag your tickets here.

Tips on Throwing a Killer Bachelor/Bachelorette Party

Let's face it -- weddings are for parents. Receptions, with their buffet meals and tired DJs, might as well be for grandparents. The real party lies a few days before, as best men and bridesmaids try to show their besties one more wild night before they get hitched.

But as anyone who has ever thrown a stag party (or "hen party," as bachelorettes are called across the pond) knows, debauchery takes planning. No one likes being forced to make decisions late in the evening, and if you're doing it right, no one will be able to. Luckily for the faint of heart, we've assembled some tips for those who dare to go above and beyond for their soon-to-be-newlywed friends.
