San Pedro’s LobsterFest 2014: The Official Schedule
It IS official because I saw Belikin posters in town…and well…the festival starts TOMORROW so here is the full schedule. I’ve added a few “unofficial” events you want might want to attend…have fun!
but always remember to…
SATURDAY, June 14th
El Divino’s Kick-Off event. 6pm. Live Music. The Lobsterfest passports will be distributed here.
SUNDAY, June 15th – Official Day One of Lobster Season
Daytime Event: Beach BBQ and Live Music at Caribbean Villas Resort. Sailing races, Lobstertail BBQ, games for kids…
Nighttime Event: Pirate’s Treasure Chef’s Table for the June 15th evening Lobster “Crawl” event which will be a three course meal (all lobster) (2apps & 1main course). Everything is made in front of you, seats only fifteen people so must be reserved. Anyone interested can call 668 2156 for more details.
The Scoop: Caribbean Villas has a great beach, water sports and draws a good crowd on Sunday. This one should be fun. The Pirates Treasure Table is full for June 15th but call and set up a dinner for any night during the week.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 18th
Daytime Event: Belize Chocolate Company This is probably not the first time you are stopping by this gorgeous shop on Front Street. But if it is, may I suggest a brownie, a cookie and a milk shake? The chocolate torte is one of the best desserts in town. Love this shop.
Nighttime event: Pedro’s Sports Bar & Pizzeria – This one is always popular with all you can eat PIZZA including Lobster pizza. Live music and lots of drinks. Beware the bell at the bar! Ring it and you bought EVERYONE a shot of Jager.
THURSDAY JUNE 19th
DayTime Event: Mesa Cafe. The food here is divine especially breakfast. Try the coconut french toast or the Churri-Chocolate Hot Cakes. YUM. Their coffee drinks are also the best in town. I bet you come back…
Try the scotch eggs too!
Mesa Cafe will be doing a Lobster special all week – one for both breakfast and lunch.
Night Event; Fido’s Restaurant & Bar. Live music and great food, Fido’s is pretty much the only bar in town that is always buzzing.
ALSO for your list. Tuesday and Thursday night’s are SUSHI night at Blue Water Grill. The sushi is the real deal. Super fresh and super delicious. All of their seafood – cooked and uncooked- is great. OR Head over to Casa Picasso for their Thursday night Tasting Menu which this week will feature…guess what? LOBSTER. For both spots, have your hotel call ahead for a reservation just in case…

Two years ago I was a judge and ate an INSANE amount of delicious lobster. Elvi’s Coconut curry Lobster was the fave. But it wasn’t easy to pick…here is a recap of the night.
Oh and guess what…I get to be a judge again this year!?!?! Woo hoo!
