Thanks to all who attended the 11th annual Taste of St. Croix on Thursday. Once again we had a crazy good time with all of you. This was my first time with my own table and I’m proud to report that the St. Croix Libation Society took home the 1st Place prize in the Beverage [...]
There are few places on STX that I can truly walk into without reservations. And I’m not referring to those oh, so necessary reservations like “Hey we’d like a table at 8:30″ kind of reservations, I mean the kind of place that doesn’t instill a small level of fear when I order from the menu. [...]
Oh, where to begin… New Orleans is a complex city. They love to flaunt their paradoxical ways in your face like a drag queen Lutheran pastor tickles his flock with a righteous feather boa. (I’ve not seen this happen, but with the incredibly large amount of Midwestern Lutheran youth that are flocking to Bourbon Street [...]

The first thing you notice as you drive into the Cruzan Rum distillery is how small the operation looks. The ubiquitous Cruzan Rum sign, frocked by palm fronds and guinea grass, sits out front in the Caribbean sun comfortable in its age, challenging nearby dilapidated sugar mills to crumble before it. You can hear the [...]
Here on the rock, if you’re here long enough, you begin to long for those small comforts of the continental states. Live music from somebody new, the ability to drive for more than 40 minutes without having to turn around, terrible 24 hr fast food joints, teenage girls stripping on ice cream trucks, (Just kidding, [...]
Living in the Caribbean can be tough sometimes. Imagine a land of perpetual summer, sunny skies and 80 degree weather. Every day. All year long. Some people like to deal with such hardship by swimming in the bath-water like Caribbean ocean, or diving into it’s depths, or surfing, parasailing, kiteboarding, sailing or one of the [...]
