    Hi Kath2me, Here's some answers to your questions:

    1. Aruba Ariba is one of billions of tropical drinks!
    1/2 oz vodka
    1/2 oz 151 rum (better if using Ron Rico from Aruba)
    1/8 oz Coecoei
    1/8 oz Creme de Banana
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup cranberry juice
    1/2 cup pineapple juice OR you're favorite "punch drink"
    Splash of Grenadine
    Do not shake, just stir lightly. Top with a "flag" toothpick and a cherry and orange. Top with Grand Marnier.

    2. With the player's club, you don't have to play a lot or big for comps, but the more you play, the more you earn... it is worth it to sign up and you can sign up for slots and/or table play. Mme J's is about 7 minutes and $9 +/- from the Radisson.

    3. http://www.yemanja-aruba.com/ Great restaurant, but frankly with the prices and the round trip cab fare I would actually opt for something closer to the Radisson next time. The menu has changed a bit from what is on the website. If you do go, you will completely enjoy the food and service. It's a coupla blocks before El Gaucho.

    4. http://www.saltandpepperaruba.com/ Great for lunch, and yes a S&P shaker that they don't have will get you a glass of wine. It's about 200 yards north of the Radisson in Arawak Garden nest to Tango, Fishes 'n More and Casa Tua. S&P is a great place for an economy lunch and Amstel Brights.... mmmm... Amstel Bright!

    5. El Gaucho.... yes, great steaks, tacky decor and ok service. They specialize in Argentine Beef with large portions. Do, at least, try Argentine beef somewhere.... Tango, Smokey Joe's and a number of other places offer it too. Keep in mind that El G has been in business since 1977... gotta be doing something right.

    6. When you check in, just ask for a complimentary upgrade. You could get a deluxe ocean view or even Plaza level. It doesn't hurt to ask and if it's available, you'll get it!

    Questions....bring 'em on..!!!

    Is that all it will cost?? Hmmm, why did I think it was expensive to take a taxi to Madam Jannettes.. thinking along the line of 20 bucks each way is why I took tht place off my list

    Serene56..... Don't take Mme Janette's off your list for taxi fare.... if you don't feel it was worth it.... I'll send you the fare... really! Besides, Mme J's will be cheaper than Ruinas del Mar at the Hyatt, Sunset Grille at the Rad, Ruth's Chris at the Marriott and Pago Pago at the Westin..! Probably cheaper than El Gaucho too! Have you visited their website? http://www.madamejanette.info/ The menu prices are very much in line... desserts are all $9.50... but very yummie! cp
