Painkiller 101

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Soggy Dollar owner Jerry will never share the exact recipe for a Painkiller, but the ingredients are pretty basic.

We found a Pussers bottle in the freezer and that is the original Painkiller rum (though you’ll have to go to Barbados or Tortola – or Annapolis – to get it that way.)

With a little refresher course from an expert, here’s how you make a Painkiller…

Bar Wars 2015

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Sunday was Bar Wars 2015 on the beach in front of the Beach Bar.

It’s an obstacle course-relay race pitting local bartender teams against each other and, in keeping with their profession, there is drinking.

If you watch nothing else of this short video, watch the last 10 seconds. No beer goes to waste in Bar Wars, not even that spilled on a tray.

Jeep Cam: Concordia

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

A drive along the quiet upper Concordia road pays off with spectacular views, and a nice place to sit and enjoy them.

If you keep driving down the hill, you can park and take a very short hike to Drunk Bay.

An Awesome Vacation Video

Monday, July 13th, 2015

That’s how Justin and Lauren Crews from San Diego end their St. John vacation video. We all know that have-to-go-home feeling.

Justin and Lauren discovered St. John on their honeymoon four years ago.

Justin’s vacation video unique. We know his camera rigging because he told us. Set aside a few minutes in your day to watch, and see if you can figure out how he did it…

A (bargain?) Peter Bay villa auction

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Get out your checkbook and mark June 13 on your calendar. That’s the auction date for Villa Rivendell in Peter Bay.

And you might get the buy of a lifetime. Well, relatively speaking.

This villa’s been on the market for north of $6 million. It appears bidding starts at $2.5 million.

We’ve written about Rivendell before. It’s at the top of our list of all the villas we’ve been in and we’ve been in a lot of them. It’s our “if we win the lottery” villa. (Unfortunately we haven’t, so you won’t compete against us.)

It rents for as much as $2,500 A NIGHT, and it rents well. That’s what a villa with a walk to the beach goes for in Peter Bay.

We shot video of it several years ago, and a newer video has since been shot since a 2012 renovation.

Here’s some auction information. Good luck.

You’ll need caretakers, so give us a call.

St. John Food Trucks: The Triple B

Monday, June 8th, 2015

That’s me, enjoying an awesome, ice cold, thick and spicy homemade mango juice at the Triple B.

That stands for two Babes do Brunch on the Bay. A new food truck serving a pretty extensive brunch menu in Coral Bay Saturdays, Sundays and even Mondays.

Meet Erin and Amy, below…
