It does not even seem like it has been 6 months. Such a shame that spent all that money and time fixing it up too.
you know, I was thinking about this because a meetup group was planning an event on this boat, a cruise or something. And I thought, how many pleasure boats does the Philly market really need? The harbor cruises by that other sleeker boat (Spirit of Philadelphia) don't seem all that popular and that's quite a big vessel. And the Philadelphia Belle isn't small either. We're not NYC, where you've got a ton of stuff to see right on the river, nor is this market really that huge. But obviously someone tried to make it work... too bad, it didn't pan out.

Whew, someone from there tried to get my Wife to leave her job where she bartends to come work there, she pondered and pondered it but eventually decided not to do it... gotta call her up and let her know GOOD CALL
I liked the idea... Sad it didn't last... Would have like to try it.
We had a river boat?
Why did we have a river boat?
And is this is a successful business model without gambling on board?
The market was probably too soft for their entry at this time.

Actually it is to a whole lot of people who told investors it didn't make a lot of sense for Philadelphia.
They never even used the paddle-wheel, just those smelly diesels. One patrol we were stuck in its exhaust for a good minute before we could get out, gave me a nasty headache.

An org that my hubby is a member of was supposed to have an event there next month. Now they are scrambling to find another venue. Sigh..
