    Prices?

    Does anyone know if there are price changes between high and low season?

    Was out with Mrs. 44 last night and was absolutely clobbered by the bar bill on a per drink basis. For those prices, I'll buy the bottle, pour for myself, invite friends, give them drinks for free so long as they wash the glasses.

    Really, man, those prices were insane.

    I'm sticking to the other side of the bridge where I can guzzle for much less.

    Sorry, and would appreciate any info.

    i don't think there are price differences at restaurants and bars depending on seasons.

    ex: i had 3 coconut martinis in aruba back in january at the radisson or the hyatt
    $42.
    i had no idea how it was made and what was in it, but good lord was it magnificent.

    it was obscene and you are so correct dan.

    That's why I keep a well stocked drinks cabinet at home.

    On a side note, the best deal I know is at the Lighthouse restaurant where they charge only $2 for a bottle of Balashi. At the vendors outside the restaurant they charge $2:50 for a Balashi in a plastic cup with ice. Even for a Scot like me, ice in my beer is a no no.

    Do nto think there is a difference with seasons...have been during high and low and just cringe when the bill comes no matter what season...that is why we buy bottles once on the island and try to stick with those drinks only....of course when out we indulge, but it hurts like crazy....
