You had me at “endless margaritas”.
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. [Featured image: courtesy of Cuchara’s Facebook]
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.
Due to the pandemic, the company was forced to go on hiatus. Now, they’re ready to set sail with three floats scheduled for this month: September 17 and 18 from 7 to 8:30 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.
