Anyhoo, we decided to go next door(ish) to the Marriott and have some Slippery Monkeys and were NOT disappointed! After that, we came back to our Airbnb again, swam a bit, had some Balashi and decided to try Straddle It Saloon for dinner. The view was OUTSTANDING and the food was mostly ok. I had the ceviche which was awesome. Hubs had the wings and ribs, which were meh-ish. That view though is something else!! After that, we came back to our Airbnb to grab some local-to-Dayton craft beers that I brought to share with Fireson's owner, Tony. He's struggling with the government permits and things that he's had for three years now that they suddenly have stopped on him. Anyway, he liked what I brought and we had some snacky food there too. Back at the Airbnb now so we can go to bed soon and be at Bugaloe tomorrow morning for breakfast, so I can rub it in at work. Hahaha!

    A few other random things: we drove down Watty Voss Blvd earlier and saw Amsterdam Manor, Playa del Carmen, Divi Links and Whatever Else, Oceania, Eagle Beach and a bunch of stuff everyone here talks about. It was seriously cool to see all that stuff in person!! I've read so much about it now that to actually see it was faboo! Robin, I waved at your condo for you! Lol.
    If you're bat hopping...no not you Stop at the Beach Bar, across from the Divi for happy hour. I think it's still all day!!!

    I need that shirt!!!

    My hubby is not much of a drinker, which is good and bad. Good cuz I have a designated driver but bad cuz I look like a lush. Ha!!

    For example, we are currently at Bochincha and have a bucket of Balashi in front of us. He's had 1. I've had... the rest. And a Zozuna, which was some blue sour drink. One of us is thisclose to dancing on the table. The other, not so much. *sigh*

    Bochincha was pretty awesome! At least as far as atmosphere is concerned. Not a lot of people there, but it IS Monday. The concept is super cool and I'm sure when there are a lot of people there the place is hoppin'. I was trying to hop, but got the kibosh put on me by hubs since I kinda had a lotta Balashi. He's so mean. Lol. Ok, no, he's really not mean at all. He's very tolerant of my.... imbibing. Vacation, man. What can I say??

    Tomorrow will be Linda's for breakfast and Pega Pega for lunch. I think. Boca Catalina will also probably be thrown in there, as well as possibly Alfies for dinner. We are trying a lot of new things this trip before my kids and dad get here.

    Balashi count = a LOT

    Love Alfies for the local atmosphere.

    Also try Cafe Chaos on Friday for happy hour. Great local pub.
