Join the Cleveland Scene Press Club. Because No News is Bad News.

At tonight’s 17th-annual Flats Oxbow Auction, a six-day cruise on the Lee A. Tregurtha tops more than 70 items up for bid. Also available: a ride on the Goodyear blimp, a 10-man bachelor party at the Hustler Club, and lunch for you and 49 of your closest friends during a three-hour tour on the Majestic. But it’s the Tregurtha package -- which includes sleeping quarters and meals for six people on the World War II tanker -- which has the Flats Oxbow Association’s assistant director Laura Furjanic beaming. “The accommodations are like hotel rooms,” she says. “The food is fabulous, and they treat you like royalty.” One caveat: The boat sets sail from Detroit for a trip on Lake Superior. The winner is responsible for getting to the Motor City.
