Fall River’s Floating Tables Have Returned to Cool You Down
Fall River's waterfront is truly underrated and it's the truth. The amount of possibilities, advantages and potential the city has doesn't get tossed around as much as it should. If you ask me, with the upcoming election on the horizon for Fall River, candidates should be focusing on helping to see the city make the most of the area that touches the Taunton River.
While I was down by the Tipsy Seagull last weekend, I totally spaced out on one of the establishment's unique features: the floating picnic tables that you can sit on and eat, drink or do both. I've yet to test out these unique tables, but I'm sure it's no different than being on a boat.
There are two floating tables that are to the right of the entrance of Tipsy and unfortunately, there is no reserving them. They are on a first come, first served basis and with the popularity of the Fall River restaurant, it's safe to say you might want to get there early to grab a chance.
Here's my question though: how much do I trust my feet dangling in the open water? Normally I don't mind the ocean, but when you can't see what's below because there's a tabletop in the way, that sounds a bit sketchy to me – but I know that's just my own hangup, and that this is an amazing idea.
As Jackson reported on this back in 2019, the tables aren't tethered once you're on, so be prepared to use your feet to kick back towards the dock. Just be sure to finish your beverages first; there's no need to waste a perfectly good drink.
