    Just got back last night, they are painting the building white, the clock is gone, replace with RUI. Work is moving along.

    That's not right....... everyone on Palm Beach referenced that clock.

    I agree cp, and who wears a watch in Aruba? I used that clock at least once a day while on the island.

    The clock went up sometime after June 2002 but before June 2003.

    I wear a watch and never gave a thought to the clock on the Westin. Probably because we are in the low rise area. If folks consider it a landmark, it would have been nice to keep it.

    Hmmm...

    I used to use the Westin clock a lot to ensure I had sufficient cocktails lined up before the end of happy Hour at Bugaloe !!

    Don't know what I'm going to do now...

    May have to buy a watch !!

    Wait, I thought there was a clock behind the bar, if not just ask someone. Might get to make a great friend and know what time it is to boot. No need to spend any happy hour money, know your priorities...
