I will be there on Dec. 11th, may be we should hold our BB get together that Monday at Busters? Mark said he would be arriving on Dec. 12th and the Monday is the 13th?

What do you think?

Gaby I got your PM's just fine. Hope it all makes sense. Giving directions is not one of my strong suits comes from growing up in a small town where directions were "turn left at Johnson's farm" etc..........

We will be in Aruba December 4-January 10th............

i remember reading that everyone who's in aruba meets on a monday for happy hour. where would that be? i figured if we could, we'd drop by, providing by then we know where we're going, lol.

and karen, your directions definitely cleared everything up (especially the two wendy's). that would have thrown me, lol. thank goodness the island is small.

Monday 's happy hour party/get together is at 5pm at Amsterdam Manner at the beach bar next to Passions on Eagle Beach. I will try and make it there on 12/13 and will meet Randi later at Busters.

Mark, it got changed in honour of you being the new owner of Busters for that particular Monday (Dec. 13th). It was discussed earlier on this thread and another one.

Andrea commented on our O Canada thread:
dec 13 (monday) 5 pm @ BUSTERS an Aruba.com community forum meet and greet happy hour (or 2)

So that will make it easy for you. BB get together and the Canada group will all meet at Busters.

Every Monday is the weekly bulletin board party at Amsterdam Manor's beach bar. It starts at 5pm and happy hour is from 5pm-6pm (2 for 1 on all drinks and the sunset is free.) :D

thanks Amy. can anyone walk on the property, since it says its an all inclusive.

anybody can walk onto Amsterdam Manor's property.
the beach bar, their pool bar and restaurant is open to the public/customers.
we go to their beach bar and pool bar often at happy hr.

Amsterdam Manor is not an all-inclusive resort. They do have an all-inclusive option you can purchase but very few people use it (we stay there every year and never purchase it.)

In other words, yes, anyone can use their beach bar or their restaurants (Passions and Mango's.) :)

That's great Randi but I believe in tradition and don't want to offend anyone from other boards or the staff from Amsterdam Manor. Some members stay in the eagle beach area and don't have transportation and samething for people at Palm Beach. I know Andrea and Paul and other members meet friends on Mondays at the BB, I will start at the Manor at 5 and stay for a for a while, the Happy Hour at Busters is 6pm to 8pm. It may mean a longer day of drinking but I will take one for the team, maybe you could start with us at the Manor and if you need transportation I can bring a few in my vehicle. If not I will see you around 6.

Randi

Mark you are correct. It was just a passing comment to welcome you to your new business venture. I agree that it is a little too confusing to change the BB regular place.

I will definitely see you over at Busters later on with our Canadian group meeting! You know Canadians and their hockey!!;)

We will be coming to Aruba to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary January 24th to February 1st. We renewed our wedding vows for our 50th on January 16th last year on the beach at sunset. January 16, 1960 is the actual day we were were married. Also on a Saturday evening :-). We vowed last year that we would celebrate all our anniversaries to come in Aruba. Unfortunately we could not be in Aruba this coming January 16th. Can't wait to get out of this cold weather and come to our home away from home. We will be starting our 35th year of visiting Aruba several times a year in January.

My wife and I will vacation in Aruba from Dec. 18 through Christmas Eve. We're in the midst of a snow storm as typing, so it will offer welcome relief.
