    Anything close during September 19th to 26th?

    Just was thinking I've never come to the island during this time before...

    Do any tourist attractions or restaurants close at this time?

    Chef's Table Resaurant was closed for vacation last year in Sept. Chalet Suisse will be closed this year Aug. 31-Sept. 23.

    We go to Aruba every year for a couple of weeks in late Sept. Once in awhile a restaurant might be closed for vacation but hasn't happened much in the past. This year the elections will be held in late Sept. so there will be one "dry day" on the island when everyone votes and alot of bars won't be seving alcohol to locals (some will not serve alcohol at all on that day.) All of the touristy bars at and around the hotels are definitely serving though. We were there during the last election period (Sept. 2005.)

    There will still be plenty of places that will be serving the tourists so not to worry. I just remember my friends went to Pincho's that night for dinner and they were "dry". We opted for a place around the hotels (I MUST have wine with my dinner! )

    Thanks everyone! Booked it and then was paranoid a lot of things would be closed since we don't normally go that time of year.

    Hey AMY~ How soon will you know the date of the dry day? Gotta have my Brown Ladies everyday. Does this include pool bars like at CDM - Matthews?

    I know the feeling on the menu looking. I looked at around 50 menus last night and ate 3 bags of "100 calorie cookies" in the process.........

    Not sure of the actual date for the election yet. I just know it's in late Sept.

    No, this won't have any effect whatsoever on hotel bars, hotel restaurants, etc. so you can have as many Brown Ladys as you like on the "dry day" as long as you stay at a hotel bar or a touristy restaurant!

    I would be extremely bummed out if it were closed while we were there. We had nothing less than a delicious meal there.
