Beautiful Morning and Today Is the LobsterFest Main Event!

It’s another beautiful morning in San Pedro…yesterday was HOT…but the breeze is feeling a bit cooler today.  Hard to tell though…it’s only 6.46am. Today is the LOBSTERFEST main event.  The big block party.  It’s only 4 or 5 years old, but last year’s was PACKED and I’m sure we are going to see more ofKeep reading »

Two All Beef Patties, Special Sauce, Lettuce Cheese…in Belize!

I promised to tell the truth in my food reviews so here is the cold hard truth.  Brace yourselves. I walked into Roadkill Bar this afternoon after hearing lots about Wade the Gringo’s burgers. This week they are serving all day Friday and Saturday.  They do a Quarter Pounder and a “Big Mac”.I expected toKeep reading »

Wadda Gwan? Blackbeard’s Hideout.

Tanya M. did some great work reviving this little corner bar by the gas station just south of town.  She had some serious “wood to chop”.  The place used to be a place of ill-repute called the Thirsty Tiger.  Her pirate theme was cool, she is an uber-friendly bartender that brings in the crowd. But nowKeep reading »

Pedro’s Has the Biggest Party of 2011 Lobsterfest so far

I arrived at Pedro’s Lobsterfest party at about 7pm and luckily a seat had been saved cuz the place was pretty packed.  The poker game was in full swing and all the tables outside were filled with lots of families. It was $25bzd for all you can eat pizza and rum punch.  A big blackKeep reading »

Fave Business: La Divina Providencia

I am a total sucker for customer service.  Greet me with a huge smile?  Pretend I am your long lost BFF?  Ask me how I’m doing?   I am your newest and bestest customer.  I will pay $3 extra a pound for the same Quality Poultry legs or 1-2-3 oil or beans that they sell everywhere else.  ButKeep reading »

Good Morning Sunshine…

Beautiful day today…and still very very breezy.  (Ha!  Take that! Dawn and evening time mosquitos!) View from my window: Oh shucks, wrong folder.  That is just a random (and very professional) internet photo of Bora Bora. But the view out my window ain’t so bad…and my camera is pretty old school. Thanks to all the supportersKeep reading »

A Kid’s Eye View

I ran into J. Castillo yesterday (I will call him J. since I don’t know how to spell his name…Jahfur, I think) and he proposed the following:  He will take my camera for an afternoon and give me a kid’s perspective of San Pedro.  He’s a very smart kid.  He gets very excited about SAGA fundraising events, he’s politeKeep reading »

One Of the Hardest Working Guys in San Pedro: Anthony

Apparently I am bringing people down with my negativity.  But I don’t see it like that.  I am just pointing out what is quirky TO ME, funny TO ME and interesting about the town I live and work in.    I am not trying to offend anyone.  And for all of you who know me, you knowKeep reading »

What is the deal with Dia De San Pedro?

Okay…so I have been here for 4 summers…or maybe five.  And I’ve heard very few things about this festival…seen the green, red and white flags flying in town but I have very little idea what it is about.  In fact, the only information I’ve got is from “Good Morning, San Pedro” and most of that was inKeep reading »

Curious advertising around San Pedro

There is strange advertising everywhere, the states, here, everywhere.  But here are some examples that I saw on my way home yesterday. NOT?  Did we just flash back to 1994?  Don’t get me wrong, I love 90s slang.  The decade produced classics like:  Talk to the hand, Da Bomb, Phat, My Bad, Psych, I’m AudiKeep reading »

One Of The Hardest Working Guys in San Pedro…

This is going to be a running column.  So please let me know if you have any nominations.  I have quite a few people in mind. There are people we see every day around town working their tails off to make a little money.  My DVD guy is one of them.  Ok, technically he isKeep reading »

Lobster Lunacy…and added bonus! Peter is out of town!

Poor poor Cindy.  She works for Peter at Pedro’s Inn.  He is a giant pain in the ass and she is perhaps the friendliest, sweet, most normal woman is town.  But left totally in charge of Lobster Lunacy?  It’s…well…lunacy.  So much work.  But if anyone can handle it, it’s Cindy V. This party is sure to be goodKeep reading »

I love each and every one of you…

425 page views in 2 days…I am a happy person.  I don’t know what that means…or why I would even be happy about it…but I am feeling popular.  Don’t bring me down!  Got lots of ideas for tomorrow.  If you need me for anything…ideas…suggestions…gossip that needs to be reported on…let me know at [email protected] OrKeep reading »

San Pedro LOVES a Fashion Show…maybe even more than a beauty contest

Wandering down Front Street and this sign caught my eye.  One Barrel, One Love…very cute.  Free Rum?  YES!  Live music and giveaways!  YES YES!  Fashion show?  Now you’ve got San Pedro hooked.  This town loves that stuff.  Almost more than we love to see Toddler and Tiara style kids with fake eyelashes…  So, I wandered down to LoveKeep reading »

2011 Lobsterfest: Monday Night Out, Lobster Luau at Mojito Bar

Went out pretty early to Monday night’s Lobsterfest event at Mojito Bar.    I love their mojitos (coconut, tamarind and ginger are my faves) and I love the owner, Deona.  She is a kick ass cook…even won first place at last year’s lobsterfest for her lobster dish.  This year’s lobster menu was AGRESSIVE.  Particularly for a small bar withKeep reading »

SP Traffic Department, Really?

It’s 10.15am Tuesday morning.  Oh jeez.  Really?  The traffic department (as far as I have seen) has not set up a traffic stop since Easter weekend.  Why do they need to do this ONLY during the tourist times (now Lobsterfest)?  And cause big traffic jams when everyone is going to breakfast?  Is this the wayKeep reading »
