Sailor Jerry Rum is sponsoring a block party during NYC's Fleet Week! Drop on by!
Who could resist this temptation? Norman Reedus, Cage The Elephant, Fleet Week and and block party? Yesss! It's all happening this Sunday in New York City. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is sponsoring this extravaganza that'll be held at Hudson River Park's Pier 84. The party kicks off at 1 pm, Sunday, May 29th.
Sailor Jerry Spiced rum was created to honor the father of American tattooing, Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins. He was a Navy vet who inked soldiers and sailors in WWII-era Honolulu in his legendary tattoo parlor. Not only did Collins have a tatto shop in paradise, he was a licensed skipper (three-masted schooner, no less), played the sax in a band and was a radio DJ.
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum will be participating in many of the Fleet Week events. To find out all of them, visit Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum's site. Here's what's happening at the Block Party that celebrates the Navy, Marines the Coast Guard and their families. There's going to be free tattoos, splendiforous BBQ, hair cuts, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum cocktails and more.
At 4:30, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus will lead a toast to the servicemen and women, and then Cage The Elephant will perform.
