Malibu Rum Station Invasion Concert Tour Hits New York

The Caribbean came to New York when Malibu Rum transformed South Street Seaport’s Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club into an island getaway for their New York stop on the Malibu Rum Station Invasion Concert Tour making it the party of the summer.


Media and VIP Guests enjoyed some wonderful cocktails like the Liquid Sunshine, an unlimited supply of burgers, hot dogs and yummy hors d’oeuvres, a great performance by Ciara and hot tunes from DJ Skribble. We also got to get our first tastes of the new Malibu Black – a 70 proof darker-colored rum with a lighter taste of coconut. A strong but very smooth rum

Before Ciara’s performance, Malibu Rum Dancers entertained and danced with the vivacious party crowd – not that this crowd needed much to be in a party mood as Malibu Rum knows how to throw one heck of a party

DJ Skribble had guests dancing the night away as we sipped on the delicious Malibu Rum cocktails

But we also got a chance to get a shot of him enjoying himself before he got down to business

And the moment everyone was waiting for – not long after a fantastic fireworks display that almost rivaled 4th of July, Ciara hit the stage to a anxious crowd and rocked our socks off with her energetic performance

The appreciative crowd showed their love by giving a rousing applause – all in all, an amazing event. Thank you Malibu Rum, hope to see you next year.

NY Water Taxi 10th Anniversary

Not too long ago, we at My Life on and off the Guest List were in attendance as the NY Water Taxi treated guests to a fun-filled event in celebration of its 10 year Anniversary and the retirement of its Founder, Tom Fox.

Held at Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club in South Street Seaport, the event had guests entertained upon arrival. After gaining entrance to the event, we were greeted by this funny fellow who kept guests laughing

Then if you felt so inclined, NY Water Taxi offered the choice of getting what I like to call “mermaid hair” – fun, elaborate items placed in the hair as decoration


And speaking of mermaids, yes there was one much to the delight of young guests and which allowed for some great photos

While guests dined on some amazing food like Salmon, roasted chicken, etc and sipped delicious cocktails, colorful dancers (who I got a great shot of as they were arriving) at various positions wowed the crowd with their vogueing skills

We were also treated to a wonderful champagne-toasted NY Water Taxi tour (naturally) to the Statue of Liberty – something I hadn’t done in years. it’s also a great reminder of why the NY water Taxi is so wonderful and a must for anyone whether they’re a tourist or a local.

The activities continued with on site artists ready to capture your image in delightful form

After a farewell speech from Founder, Tom Fox and some more libations, we got an amazing fireworks display which would make The 4th of July fireworks a bit jealous. Check out the amazing display of celebration below as the NY Water Taxi honored their ten years.

All in all, an amazing event. You couldn’t ask for a better way to celebrate NY Water Taxi’s 10 years of showing the beauty of New York. Enjoy a few more photos below
