It looks as though quite a few of us will be on the island again this coming May. Anyone up for a get together? Unfortunately Legends is no more, so we'll need to pick a new place, but we have plenty of time to kick around some ideas. I think Local Store might be a fun place, but we're open to just about anywhere. Thoughts?

I think Local Store would be fun too.

Count on Paul and I.

Local Store sounds like it could be a good fit. We’ve been wanting to try it and will be there in May, so count us in!!

When in May? I usually go in May or September. When I go in May I try to go Mid-May to be there for my birthday May 20th..

We’re there May 7th until the 16th.

I'm going to miss you all. just got a trade confirmation to la cabana for May 18th. Nice room too 1 bedroom first floor 134A I think was the unit. On the interval trade to La Cabana, they confirm the unit number. On other resorts like Divi Aruba Phoenix, they don't give you the unit number. Hope I get a good room at Divi Phoenix for my trip next week.

I know Local Store would be a good place!
I really like the Local Store.

I would like us to consider Alfies too.

Pegmeister
12-13-2018, 12:27 PM
I would be good with Alfies or Local Store. They are both on our to try list. Just tell me where to go and we’ll be there!!

WaltVB

You know... we could get together more than once, at Local Store and Alfie's.

Wish I could make it to Aruba in May. My trip to Aruba usually coincides with my annual vacation from my job which is normally in September. However I do have a lot of casual days that I have not used.....hmmmm. If I can't make it there in May I will be there in Spirit. As for the Venue, both Alfies and Local Store sound like good locations.

We will be there April 27 til May 11 at lacabana. We have not had the opportunity to meet anyone from the forum and would love to be included. I’ve written trip reports before but I’ve been a stalker for awhile because I got a new iPad and lost my password and user ID. Just found it so we are back! Love the local store! Just let us know when!

Looks like Alfie's will be a crap shoot, but Local Store is a go. We'd love to meet you guys, and welcome back!

We are there 5/13-5/24 Segway tour?

WaltVB
04-23-2019, 05:47 PM
Well I guess for our upcoming forum get together in May, Alfie's Palm Beach is out for now. I'm pretty sure Local Store is still on our list for a get together and it seems like we're gonna have a good turnout. Since we shouldn't just stick to one place are there any other suggestions? I see "pop-up" forum get togethers on Eagle Beach and even downtown. You know, spur of the moment, 3 or 4 or more members get together for drinks, dinner, UTV tour, snorkel trip, whatever and share with the rest of us here. Anybody have thoughts on any of this?

We will be busy with friends the first week but would love to join a forum get together our 2nd week - May 12-18.

WaltVB
04-23-2019, 06:03 PM
Thanks Kim, we should try to nail down a date that works for all of us. We are there from April 29 to May 20, so we're pretty much wide open.

Pegmeister
04-23-2019, 06:20 PM
I like the idea of Local Store for the group. The only other place I thought of was Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar but since it’s downtown it may not be convenient for people. I’m sure smaller groups will probably get together on the fly. We already have plans with Andrea and Paul for a day when we’re at the Ritz. We’re flexible. Arriving on the 7th leaving on the 16th. The only days that don’t work for us are the 7th and 8th.

Rebecca and Scott
04-23-2019, 08:35 PM
We are there May 12 to 19th. We would like to join the group for drinks.... great way to learn about the island and meet some new friends....

Cheers

We would like to be there too but not out time on the island. I will volunteer to have a beverage here in the states, for anyone that wants to be there that day but can’t make it. Least I could do...

I cannot post a photo with the location circled.
It is on Rte 3 aka Palm Beach Rd. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Local+Store+Aruba/@12.5668512,-70.0418906,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x8e8538120903e363:0x1b3835501aeae 9ce!8m2!3d12.5656731!4d-70.0391011
Local Store is a Burger/beer/wings kind of place.
It is pretty awesome and it is almost sort of "a dive", but a dive in the nicest form.
It is very popular.
Good food. good staff.

hooray I got it to post.
the large circle/oval is just marking a portion of PALM BEACH/HI Rise area.
Palm Beach Rd/Rte 3 is perpendicular to the ocean.

Again, I have no idea if we are at Local Store for dinner.
I would guess that yes it will involve food.
I feel pretty comfortable saying yes it will involve beverages.

Glad you will be able to join us! These meet ups have always been pretty casual. There have been times when everyone had drinks and times when people grab a bite. We haven’t been to the Local Store yet so looking forward to trying it. Their menu leans towards plenty of wings, burgers and such.
