Wedding bells are in Beach Bar bartender Dave Arbogast’s future. But St. John no longer is. Dave and his fiancÃƒÂ©, Dana Durfey, are packing their bags and heading for California.
“We’re getting married in August and we’re researching all those little details like buying a home and starting a family, ” Dave tells us. “There are a lot of ex-St. Johnians we know living on the West Coast so it seems like a good place to check out. ”
Dave, who came to St. John from Colorado, by way of school in Kansas City, landed on the island in 1995 and has been at the Beach Bar for 5 years
“We will miss the locals and the tourists, and I appreciate each and every one who has visited the Beach Bar. It is the customers who make the Beach
Bar what it is. ”
-His favorite drink to drink is Crown and 7 with a lemon.
-He has a pet tortoise named Cheba (who gets to stay on St. John with friends.)
