    I think I had plenty of Brights for you (and everyone else) yesterday at the Bugaloe. We spent a few hours there in the late afternoon since the weather was a little overcast. I tried another Balashi Chill but with a lime this time - I didn't like it with the lime. It was pretty good without the lime when we had a couple on the first day but I still think Brights will be our first choice.

    Had a late night dinner at Bingo last night - great French onion soup and goat cheese salad.

    We tried the Balashi Chill side by side with the Amstel Brights. It's very similar in taste to the Brights but the Brights have a lighter taste. Chill is served with a lime but we liked it better without the lime. We're not big fans of the regular Balashi (except if it's on tap) but we did like Chill in the bottles. But.....we still like the Brights the best.

    As far as Chill vs. Corona - haven't tried them side by side but I would venture a guess that we would pick Corona over Chill because it has a smoother flavor.

    We've been here 6 days now (we're staying for 2 weeks) and the weather has been spotty. Sunny, cloudy, hazy - little bit of everything. Only had a few sprinkles of rain in the morning last Thurs. but could tell it had rained at night a couple of times while we slept.

    So far we've been to Pago Pago, Bingo, Papillon, Screaming Eagle, Bugaloe, Amadeus, Ellioti's, Taste of Belgium, and Dos Locos. This week we have reservations for Carte Blanche on Tues. and Passions on Fri. Thinking about going to Flying Fishbone on Wed. since a friend invited us and we haven't been there in some time. Too many places to get to......

    I hope your weather improves, though the forecast is calling for little wind

    I always look forward to more restaurant reports dh and I were just discussing the Flying Fishbone so I will be curious to hear your impressions.

    Sorry I haven't been able to post every day on this board. Vacation time is precious so I've only been posting on one Aruba bulletin board at the following link:
    http://www.aruba-travelguide.com/bul...r=asc&start=30

    The trip has been great but the weather still a little whacky - changes all the time. Today is my hubby's last full day (he leaves tomorrow) but I'm here until Tues.

    Amy, how was Dos Locos? My sisters and I looked for and found it in February but I couldn't convince them to give it a try. The parking lot was empty and no one was in the restaurant except for the workers so it didn't seem like a big draw. Do you know if they are open for dinner or breakfast and lunch only?
