Best bar in North America


Why is the bar tilted?

After years of dreaming about it, I finally got to visit ‘his’ bar. I’ve made the trek to visit his home and even his grave but I had never made it to his bar. When i walked in the door, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The bar is tilted at an insane angle due to the earthquake over a hundred years ago and the same tables that historic figures like Robert Louis Stevenson, famed author of the classic adventure book, Treasure Island sat at are still here. Let me say that again, I sat and drank at the same table as the guy that wrote Treasure Island. Click on the photo to read the whole story.

Saint Thomas & Saint Croix tout guide, Jackie Sonia

virgin islands tour guideGudday! I was fortunate enough to grow up in paradise on earth, the U.S. Virgin Islands. Growing up on the island of St. Croix was magical. Since I was born in St. Croix, that is my true hometown. However, I can claim St. Thomas as my hometown, too since my younger years were spent in St. Thomas. Sometime during my middle school years, my family moved to St. Croix where I attended catholic school. However, we would go back and forth from one island to the other as we had families on both islands and my dad worked in St. Thomas. My grandma’s house was a hop, skip and a jump away from a lagoon in St. Croix. many a days we would trek there to catch crabs and swim. One of my fondest memories is of the family picnics we used to have at Cramer’s Park. The whole family would gather together, bring side dishes and my uncles would cook a pig right there on the beach. We [kids] would be in the water just splashing around and having fun. It sounds strange to say, but living on a beautiful island surrounded by all that crystalline blue water, many of us couldn’t swim a stroke.
