And yeah, I can show casino stuff from all of those places. Without my free image hosting site, though, I don't think I can still post photos.
    Oh, I wished there were a time machine! That must have been a glamours time with it's own charm! Would love to see your photos.

    We spent our honeymoon in 1973 at the Aruba Caribbean aka Radisson aka Hilton. The Sheraton was next door and then not much more on Palm Beach. Had our special dinner at Talk of the Town.

    Does anyone remember L'Escale? It was a very romantic restaurant where the LG Smith Steakhouse is. I remember being serenaded by a violinist.

    On one of our first trips we went to Rhumba Wine bar. We loved it. There was a server there who could pour a Heineken, with one hand, and not touch the glass. I was amazed! At the time, I think Casa Tua was on the second level.

    Does anyone remember Cook's Restaurant in Oranjestad? And Omi (sp?) the owner? Quite a classic! I believe the restaurant is closed, unfortunately.
