What could be better than floating the Buffalo Bayou? Floating the Bayou with a buzz, of course. Cuchara is bringing back their Xochimilco boat tour: a booze cruise that serves ceviche, party favors, and all the margaritas you can drink.
Cuchara is a Mexican City bistro in Houston opened since 2012. Their boat tour is an homage to the Xochimilco tradition, that is, floating the city’s Aztec canals on flamboyant rafts while savoring food, drinks, and live music. After a four-year hold, Cuchara is bringing back the Xochimilican pastime to Houston.
During the winter time, the restaurant goes on hiatus. Now, they’re ready to set sail with two floats scheduled for this month: April 29 and 30 from 6 to 7:30 pm.
For a small fee of $120 (plus tax), Houstonians can get a ticket for this Mexico City-style party barge – at least as past voyages have detailed. As mentioned, the pass includes food, bottomless ritas, and party favors. While tickets are sure to sell out quick, Cuchara usually also hosts a float in the fall. You can only book tickets by phone at 713-942-0000. Tickets sell out fast, so if get the inside of a scheduled tour, you better get them on the phone, stat!
Word of warning, there are no bathrooms on this barge. DO NOT break the seal. Also, I don’t know why you would, but definitely don’t jump off the boat.
