Wine cruise with Corksaway in Los Alamitos Harbor, scheduled for 6:45pm.
6:30pm, we arrive. Wait at the tables outside that the helpful valet says people normally wait at. There's not much else marking this as where Corksaway is...
6:40pm, we see some drunk people walk off the pier. There's nothing to say they're from Corksaway, there's no one official looking following them, Shug and I are both looking over there and aren't sure what to look for, but nothing stands out.
6:45pm. Supposedly the cruise picks up 2 people and leaves. They only have 6 people total booked, so they missed 2/3rds of their customers??
6:50pm. Teresa calls the number on our Livingsocial deals. A live human answers (!) and says they're probably still out cruising. Okay.
7:05pm. Teresa calls again-- after all this is only a 1 hour or a 90 minute cruise or something, what the hell is going on? The same human answers and says they're sailing around they bay, they left without us. We're pissed. We were right at the usual waiting spot fifteen minutes early. We didn't see a sign or anything, didn't see an obvious wine cruise "Captain" walking off the pier... what the hell??
The guy says since he knows we called him twice and we were there, normally we're SOL and no refunds, but he'll let us re-book our wine cruise. Again. (for the second time. yes, second). $*@()#@!#
Since we're all the way in Seal Beach, we might as well grab dinner, so Marut, Teresa, Shug, and I have a decidedly mediocre meal at The Crab Pot, right on the harbor. Our server is very good in crazy/enthusiastiac way, but the so-so food and extremely slow kitchen are just too much. I think we spent two and a half hours at our meal. Blah.
