    If the dates were closer, I could see one being a soft opening, but two months is way too long for that.

    Our house is almost across from the Ritz we all are hoping that they will have a "Welcome to the neighbourhood party" with free cocktails and snacks........probably the only way any of us will be able to afford a drink there!

    if the ritz does not have a nice cocktail party for you fine folks in the neighborhood.........maybe you could invite to your house? they though would have to bring the beverages and snacks....right

    i do hope that they are good neighbors and the increase in traffic is not problematic for you.

    boy, is that building large!!

    Hahaha Andrea maybe! although our good friend and neighbour works at the Hyatt so it might turn in to a rumble. We are tucked behind the salina so far enough away? i must admit i do love the traffic circle. That intersection was a bit hairy especially at night. Only time will tell the impact I guess but as long as our friends that life on the island permanently are okay that is the most important thing for us part-timers.

    i am still hearing mid/late nov 2013 for the opening.

    does anyone have any current photos of the progress?

    my guess is lots of interior work and landscaping going on at this point.
