    Dining while South Soul festival is going on

    Has anyone attempted to eat at places like West Deck, Pinchos or Barefoot during the week of this festival?

    Friends of ours are staying at Renn suites that week and she asked me about this event and eating. I feel very badly as this is her first visit and I didn't know this was event was during her visit.

    help me not feel bad❤️

    We did have an issue where we couldn't make a reservation at Barefoot during the start of Carnival - they were shutting down... I think because it was the first big parade. They should check with the restaurants for opening and closing times.

    Go to Gostoso for dinner!!!!

    We ate at Pinchos during a Christian Revival at the stadium. Sorry to say the mix did not go well together.

    I would suggest heading anywhere in the opposite direction --> Tierra del Sol? Just my humble opinion which surely ain't worth much, but it would surely be worth the cab ride to get away from the "festival".

    Soul Beach Festival is at Nickii Beach right where Barefoot is, so I wouldn't even attempt to go there unless they went before Thursday when all the events start. We have been there many times during Soul Beach and stay away from going into town from the High Rises starting on Thursday's the traffic is bad.

    Monday-Tuesday I think would be the best day. Not sure of practice times if it is on Wed. night or during day on Thursday. They also have things going on at different places besides Nickii beach. I guess the best bet would be to look on the Soul Beach website and see the schedule of events then make the decision where and when to go. This year I will be there after Soul Beach.
