  1. Re: Recommendations for 1st night on island dinner

    For a 1st night dinner, after a long travel day, I prefer to go low key, reliable, and comfortable. My choice would be the same as Rivertrash - Le Repaire. I wouldn't argue against my friend...
  2. Re: All you frequent flyers have your October star?

    Yes, having a RealID driver's license is important. We should all have one. However, if you're traveling to/from St Barth, you should already have, and use, an acceptable ID. If you don't then you...

    Re: Dengue Virus Death

    Many healthy people catch the disease, some more than once as there are 4-5 serotypes of Dengue, and recover. We all know people on the island who have had Dengue at least once, and are fine today.
