Popped over on Friday to this local island tradition. The water department holds this barbeque every week and the funds they raise go towards enhancing their families' lives. The barbeque was great and we enjoyed talking with the folks there - great fun experience.

This is a popular and lively BBQ spot that is open Friday and Saturday evenings. You can find it by the blasting - but really good - music. Great ribs and chicken. While you're waiting you can dance and drink beer.
