You'll note there's no grand opening sign or anything. I'm still flabbergasted at how new businesses open up in secret on this island. The only reason I knew about it was that someone mentioned it on Facebook. Ok, let's go inside. Zzzz. We're always excited about a new food shopping experience, but we were pretty unimpressed with this one. So much so, I didn't take any pictures. There was a deli with some take-out food that might make people happy (if they eat meat). It looked a lot like their other store. Ho hum. Ok, let's go upstairs and get some grub at the Dragon Garden.
I have to admit we were a little put off by the stark, cafeteria-like interior, but we were determined to give the place a fair shake. Speaking of shake - or shaker - we thought the salt & pepper shakers were ingenious - they have lids to keep the moisture out. We want a set! It really doesn't take much to impress us.
We had a great view of the street and enjoyed people watching.
|Rude! The boy is rude!|
We then headed to the Shiggidy Shack to congratulate the friend that will be deserting us soon. Whaa. The band playing was The Core (Kore? from Nevis) and they were fantastic. There were quite a few band members. The 4 vocals had great harmony and the rest on the instruments were no slouches either. We like KC-5, Royaltiez, and Jazzique, but it's nice to hear new talent. Mr. X start them earlier next time! I decided to let everyone go incognito and didn't take any pictures, but watching our newly returned pal Heather try to dance on crutches was entertaining. Fun night out!
We had a great morning as well when, for the first time in 3 months, we weren't woken up by that horrid construction noise I just posted about (it was terrorizing us 7 days/week including holidays from 8am to 4/5pm). I don't know if it was just coincidence or the Manor heard my cries of desperation, but thank you.
Congratulations to our pal Kat who just finished the South Carolina marathon in 3 hours 32 minutes and qualified for the Boston marathon. Considering she's been training in 80-degree temps + humidity, I'll bet her lungs were loving the 35 degree temps for the run this morning. Great job Kat!!
