    Yes...I can’t speak for dinner, but it’s the same view and there happy hour is a pretty good one. They also serve a limited selection of apps for purchase at the bar.

    Price Hacker had large appliances, TV's and split A/C systems. They also had kitchen dishware, plasticware, furniture, tools, blankets and a number of other items. Some things appear to be regular items and others come and go.

    Wednesday Day 22:

    We parked the car at the gym and noticed a vine/thorn branch sticking in the sidewall of one of the tires, so after we were done, we drove to the garage that serviced our car. I pulled out the branch and sure enough, it had punctured the sidewall in two places. We put the spare on and drove to BONTIRES, since our garage does not repair tires, to see if it could be repaired or needed replacement. Ended up having two additional small holes, so we had the tire replaced. The service was excellent, and we were out of there in twenty minutes. I also thought that the cost of replacement was very reasonable. I told the wife when we purchased the car, that our two recurring expenses would probably be tires and battery, so here it begins...

    Went back to the condo and sat by the pool for the rest of the afternoon, soaking up the sun and taking an occasional dip.

    We decided on a new to us venue for happy hour, the Bohemian Restaurant. The setting is very nice, and the happy hour includes the entire bar. Their happy hour prices are very reasonable. We'll return for sure.

    We had some time to kill, so we went to the casino inside Barcelo. It is very small, and we only stayed a short time.

    From there we headed to the movies and saw Ford vs. Ferrari. Christian Bale and Matt Damon did a great job and we enjoyed the movie.

    By the time we got back to the condo it was getting late, so we called it a another day.

    We have never been to Pinchos. Our oldest daughter went there a couple of years ago and loved it.

    We've been to Pinchos a couple of times and enjoyed it... great view, food and service..... a bit tight seating for the two top tables...... but everyone generally likes neighbors.....!

    Thursday Day 23:

    The wife wanted to go to Flora today to see if they were decorated for Christmas yet. The amount of time and effort that they put into their holiday displays is nothing short of amazing. When we got there, we found the store completely decorated. I’ll post a second photo link for those that are interested.

    We drove back through downtown and there were two ships in port, which I knew before we headed that way, so it was a little congested. As much as the highway avoids downtown, we still enjoy driving through it on occasion.

    We loaded our beach chairs in the car and parked ourselves on the beach between Divi and Manchebo. It’s another location that we enjoy, and we had planned on going to Mathew’s for happy hour anyway to see if we could catch up with our favorite bartender there. We were headed to the car to put our chairs away and happened to see the bartender that we were headed to see leaving for the day, so we changed our plans and went to the Beach Bar.
    We sat at the bar and noticed that they have added a second happy hour, so now they have one daily between 2-3 and 5-6. We stayed for sunset and then headed back to the condo for dinner in and a work night.

    Watched a little TV and nodded off for the night.
