Pier 83 (Hudson River and West 42nd Street), 212-563-3200, Midtown West
After long days of ferrying the sightseeing masses around New York, Circle Line's boats like to let their hair down with events like NYC Rockin' the River Cruises, complete with live music from tribute bands and up-and-comers. Shows include Billy Joel tribute group Big Shot, Louisiana guitarists The Malone Brothers and quirky cover band The Nerds. And the party isn't confined to New York City proper. Come autumn, events like daylong booze cruises make their way upstate with a stop-off at Bear Mountain State Park's annual Oktoberfest.
