This June, for the low price of $38,800 you can buy a ticket for yourself and four friends that entitles you to cocktails, sailing, and canoodling with the Kennedy’s at John F. Kennedy’s former Hyannis Port home. If the cost of a new car is too steep for you, don’t fret, there’s still a chance for you to party with Ethel, Kiki, Ted Kennedy Jr., and Joe Kennedy III at JFK’s former beach house: for only $10,800 you can buy two tickets to dinner with the Kennedy’s (no sailing, no picnicking).
Isn’t that the dream, bros? Sailing and drinking with the Kennedy’s in Hyannis Port? Does it get more American than that? Can you really afford NOT to spend tens of thousands of dollars to get crunked with America’s First Family?
All proceeds from the weekend kicking off on June 13th will go into the war chest of Congressman Joe Kennedy III, who represents Massachusetts’ 4th District, and is seeking his first reelection. Why they feel the need to fundraise by asking us to spend tens of thousands of dollars to party with the Kennedy’s is beyond me, because as we all know: Kennedy’s always get reelected. There’s less than ZERO chance that ol’ Joe Kennedy III doesn’t return to Congress.
The NY Post’s Page Six reported that Ethel Kennedy sent out invitations to the weekend at Hyannis Port estate that was once home to President John F. Kennedy. You might recall Ethel as being the Kennedy’s matriarch who once gained the favor of millennials by stating that she highly approves of Taylor Swift. The weekend’s activities will be ““filled with politics, picnicking, sailing and friends” in Hyannis Port, starting with cocktails at Ethel’s home on June 13.”
Wikipedia‘s got some interesting info on the Kennedy’s Hyannis Port compound:
The Kennedy Compound consists of three houses on six acres (24,000 m²) of waterfront property on Cape Cod along Nantucket Sound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, United States. It was once the home of American businessman and political figure Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., his wife Rose, and two of their sons, Jack and Bobby. Their youngest son, Ted lived in his parents’ house, and it was his main residence from 1982 until his death in 2009.
Ted also bought President Kennedy’s house from his daughter, Caroline. This house now belongs to Ted Jr.
Jack used the compound as a base for his successful 1960 U.S. Presidential campaign and later as a summer White House and presidential retreat until his assassination in 1963. Ted died at the compound in 2009 and in 2012 the main house was donated to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, which said the house would eventually be opened to the public.
That last part about being opened to the public is interesting, because as of now it is NOT. So dropping coin on a weekend of sailing and drinking with the Kennedy’s this June might be your only realistic chance at experiencing what American Aristocracy is like.
To get a sense of just what the weekend might be like, might I suggest checking out ‘The Other Kennedy’s’, a YouTube series co-created by a friend of mine that’ll have you bros laughing your asses off (and which you can probably relate to). It runs through what life is like for the lesser known Kennedy’s of the world. Here’s The Other Kennedys Episode 1: Picnic Table
