Riverhouse was the Perfect Venue for our Wedding Reception

Riverhouse was the perfect venue for our wedding reception from day one of planning until the end! They were very quick to respond with any questions or concerns that I had, and made sure that everything went smoothly! They were readily available to meet with me whenever I wanted, and made sure that everything was organized and taken care of prior to our “big day” so that I was worry free! I would definitely recommend them for any wedding or big event!

Pokémon Go and Boating: Three Tips from BoatUS

A Pokémon Go “gym” is located next to the iconic BoatUS Buoy at the recreational boating association’s national headquarters in Alexandria, VA.

ALEXANDRIA, VA, July 14, 2016 – The reality-game-meets-exercise app currently taking the nation by storm, “Pokémon Go,” now has 21 million users every day – reportedly the most successful mobile game ever in the US. The game features characters called Pokémon that players capture in the real world using a combination of GPS and augmented reality. That also means that Pokémon-mania has also come to the water and with it, BoatUS, the national boating advocacy, services and safety group has three tips for playing Pokémon Go while boating:

  1. Be aware: The US Coast Guard reports “Operator Inattention” as one of the five main primary contributing factors in accidents. When searching for a “water type” Pokémon such as “Magikarp” on a waterway, let the first mate or friend handle the cell phone while the captain keeps a safe lookout. 
  2. Watch cell phone battery use: Users report the game eats up a smartphone’s battery charge. With many recreational boaters today relying on their cell phones for communication, it would be wise to bring along a spare charger, or use battery saving mode. BoatUS also reminds boaters that only a VHF radio can summon emergency help from the closest rescuers, ensuring the fastest response.
  3. Have fun: The BoatUS National Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia offers a Pokémon “gym” located next to the iconic BoatUS Buoy at 880 S. Pickett Street. At lunch, some BoatUS employees can be seen playing the game. (Insider’s tip: The yellow Pokémon Go BoatUS Marine Insurance underwriting team often battles other BoatUS departments, and for a limited time, free boat insurance quotes will be available to all players.)
REGATTA POINTE MARINA NOTE: We have had a number or Pokémon sightings reported right here at Regatta Pointe Marina, including some all of the way down the main pier in front of the Riverhouse Reef & Grill!
