Felix and Fingers recently dueled on a CAF Docent cruise, which was held to thank the volunteers who host Chicago architecture tours. Docents are CAF (Chicago Architecture Foundation) tour guides who conduct public and private tours and breathe life into the history of Chicago’s architecture.

CAF Docent Cruise
On this rainy night Felix and Fingers and CAF Docents enjoyed the views and party atmosphere from the lower deck of the boat as we glided on Chicago’s waterways. Even though the water was grey, the light from surrounding buildings reflected off the water and through the fog like dancing stars. Food and good drinks were served as the sunlight faded. Our favorite dish of the night was fried chicken. Duncan, one of our pianists, couldn’t stop eating it before our set!
After the buffet opened, guests gathered and chatted, happy to celebrate a job well done. Then, managers gave quick speeches filled with funny anecdotes. They praised the Docents’ curiosity and desire to be lifelong learners. All in all, everyone was pleased with the accomplishments from this past year.
Once the speeches were finished, we began our set. The small boat made for a dense crowd, but guests still found room to dance with their spouses. Throughout the night we had a lot of requests for “river” songs. One of the Docents explained that this meant they wanted music fit for a boat ride. We were happy to oblige and played as many boat songs as we could, including “Come Sail Away” by Styx and “Five O’Clock Somewhere” by Alan Jackson feat. Jimmy Buffet. Overall, despite the rain, this night was still a great party and celebration for all involved.
