New York Helicopter Tour: Ultimate Manhattan Sightseeing

Avoid the congestion of New York City down on the ground, and take to the sky to see Manhattan during this NYC helicopter tour. Catch sight of the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, George Washington Bridge, and many other top attractions without standing in line or sitting in traffic.

Looked for a show with some friends and this sounded entertaining. You learn about alcohol and get drinks in the process? Sign us up! We walked in to a high top table with small seating area with a bar as the stage and popcorn at our table. The actors were excellent and we learned a lot. You're served various cocktails that follow the story and they were good and pretty strong. It was quite the history lesson if you want to learn about how alcohol has evolved over the years.

If you've been to Drunk Shakespeare and enjoyed it, you probably will not like this show. It was painful to sit and witness this lack of everything. Talent, humor etc. We left at intermission. Only because we were right in the front and didn't want to disrupt the room just in case someone was enjoying it. 15 min. some folks that were sitting near the "door" (it's just a curtain that they close off the lobby) left. We wanted so badly to leave with those folks! The greatest loss is not the wasted money, it's the loss brain cells and our time. Drunk Shakespeare is wonderful and we will be going to see it again on our next trip.

The Imbible productions are educational musical comedies about the history of cocktails and spirits. Drunk Shakespeare is not. However, we've found that most audience members who enjoy their show also enjoy ours, and vice versa. We recognize that preferences in theater, like food and drink, are a matter of taste, and we also know that our shows are not right for everyone. As you can see from the rest of the reviews on this site, though, they are very much enjoyed by the vast majority of our audiences. We're sorry that our show wasn't what you were looking for, and we hope that your next theater experience will be more suited to your taste!

I have never once left a review before but after seeing "A Spirited History of Drinking" I feel the need to give it an honest in hopes that people save their time and money and do not see it...the content was incredibly dry, the drinks were watered down, and the audience gave no more than a few half-hearted pity laughs as most all I saw counted down the minutes until the end of the show. Not only was the content brutally boring, but the sound in the bar - despite being no larger than a small room - was imperceptible, especially when the narrator was going on his monologue. Please please: either change the content of this play to make it actually entertaining or discontinue it. Sounded great at first but was incredibly let down. Save your time and money.

We're very sorry you didn't enjoy the performance! The Imbible shows aren't for everyone -- theater, food, and drinks are all very personal tastes, though we try our best to appeal to as many people as possible. However, we can say without question that our drinks are not watered down, and we're not sure why you would make that accusation in a review. The vast majority of our audiences find The Imbible productions to be both entertaining and educational, as you can see from the balance of reviews on this site, and our drinks are often cited as one of their favorite parts of the shows. We hope your next theater experience, and your next drink, will be a better match for your taste!
