TTOL Meet & Greet 1st week of November
      #1698339 - 05/30/16 10:18 AM (74.74.69.24)

Any interest? Last visit was in 2005 and we organized a TTOL M&G with several others staying on SXM for a happy hour at a newer restaurant in Philippsburg that provided free apps and discounted drinks. Nice way to meet others, and the next morning several of the group enjoyed the Friday Farewell cat sail on the Golden Eagle. Some folks bowed out because the early morning weather was iffy, but what a gorgeous day it turned out to be!
Still 5 months out but anyone there that week and interested maybe we can plan something.

We will be on Island from the 6th thru the 20th but won't go near P'burg but will consider another area to party.

Will be there 11/17 - 12/8 and would also attend but I suspect you are talking about earlier in the month. May organize one myself later in Nov if no one else steps up to the plate.

Linda,

Now that I know your dates I'm even sorrier yet we won't be there this November. I would have waved to you on your balcony at Blue Marine from mine at the Towers, and as long as you had binoculars, you might have even seen me.. Sort of...... Or not!!

--------------------
Respectfully,

pat

We'll be there from the 4th-11th. would be interested in meeting up, but not crazy about P'burg area. Never been in November, so this will be a first for us. Will also be on the island again in February and March.

We're going for a week. Bringing our son with us this time. Been trying to convince him for years! He finally gave in! We are staying in a different villa, just down the street. Took a tour of it last March and fell in love with it. It's always booked solid in February and March, so thought we'd try something different and take a week in November. Still doing our usual three weeks during Regatta at Sera Bella.

Has it been decided yet which one of you gorgeous and warm-hearted ladies is putting together the shin-dig?

Here's a novel idea, how about the Canadians who are vacationing on island that 3rd week of November host a party for their American Cousins. You can get with IslandGem(Elizabeth) and work it all out. I, for one, would be most appreciative.

Experience speaks volumes, you already know the ins and outs and have the connections.

Me, I'm more like the wedding crasher type instead of the marrying type. You host the soirée and I'll be sure to crash.

Let us know what the definition of "first week" becomes...

Drat, we leave on the 4th.

With a tag line like that, you must be a government employee. (ducking)

Actually, it's from some Anguilla merchandise...laying in a hammock all day under the palms (old Gwen's) drinking rum punches is downright exhausting!

Moxie (a Canadian) and I did host a meet and greet maybe 3 years ago with a poor attendance. Seems folks don't like to come to Philipsburg or Oyster Pond Area (except for Norm's party in February).

crmoores did say "maybe". I wouldn't put too much faith in a maybe. But maybe they are last minute people and will put something together in October...maybe.

Sorry folks - my bad! I do apologize for starting this thread and not following up...

We're there just a week from Oct 29 and leaving on Nov 5. Does anyone know of a restaurant or other venue that is newer perhaps and would like the exposure that a M&G would give them if they provide drink discounts or apps? Or a place that is known for this? I can also contact some place if anyone has recommendations? We haven't been to SXM in 11 years so we're not familiar with the places.
Thanks and hope to meet some of you in a couple weeks!

The Greenhouse in Simpson Bay would be glad to do it as they have done others in the past. They have reduced price apps and 2 4 1 drinks until 7pm. here is a link to their website, ask for Mike or Conan....http://www.thegreenhouserestaurant.com/

We're also looking at a day trip to Anguilla. We're trying to decide between the ferry/taxi option to get about 8 hrs on Anguilla, or an excursion like Bluebeard's or Blue Safaris. Not sure if Blue Safari would give a discount to a group if they had no other reservations on one day but it's worth asking if anyone else is interested? The tour we're looking at is the Shoal Bay Splash, looks like a nice mix and we get there much faster than on a cat.

As Sammy said, the Greenhouse is a good choice. 2 for 1 drinks and reduced price apps...

Sounds good, would be great to meet some of you folks! Do we just want to set a date/time and meet at the bar, or request a large table ahead of time? I can contact them if need be.
How does Monday, Oct 31 work for you all? And do you like 4:30ish? We're flexible, the discount apps at 4:30 sound good before dinner whatever day we choose...

I'll also seek out a place that might offer "special" discounts to the group and report back if I come across anything.

It's neither here nor there for me, but Oct 31 is Halloween. Might not be the best day, if people are planning on attending specific Halloween parties, IF they have them on Halloween on island. Never been on island for Halloween myself.

Red Piano is having their party on Monday night, 10/31 while Topper's is on Saturday, 10/29. Unsure when BBB is having there's. Most bar-restaurants and casino's have Halloween parties.

You need to contact someone soon, as all the places do want a heads up as they might need to bring additional staff in for bartenders or waitstaff as it is still low season. When I hosted a few years ago, 88 people replied that they would come and 53 did show up. That is a lot of people who are interested, and I gave The Greenhouse plenty of notice so that they could plan for us.

For us we wouldn't be available until after 11/2. We are moving locations and don't want to make any commitments the day after a big party. Wink, wink.

ah, yes - forgot about Halloween!
Sorry you're coming later Kish and Cheryl & Ted.
I see only a couple folks that may be interested for Tuesday, Nov 1 so does someone else want to schedule something for the 4th when others are available? We leave the 5th so we may or may not be able to make it...

Are these typically costume parties or can you just wear something funny and be ok?

Costume parties. Non costumed are in the minority at Red Piano but a costume is not mandatory anywhere we've gone to

I doubt most visitors pack major costumes, just need a little imagination!
Thanks

Your are incorrect that statement as we have seen the king and queen of hearts, a large pastry box from Mike's Pastry in Boston, People dressed up in some pretty sniffed out stuff.

Back to the real subject line of this thread, So where and when and what time is the get together?

Have to agree with Sammy. Most do pack costumes who go to the parties. This is our 11th or 13th visit to the island during Halloween timeframe. We use to go earlier in October but once we heard about the parties we decided to push it back and so glad we did. We met some wonderful people who have become good friends we would have never met had we stayed in the earlier October timeframe.

I stand corrected - these folks are serious Halloweeners!
We are usually in Mexico over Halloween and Dia de Muertos and that's a different experience...We'll have to pack better for this trip!

Regarding the meet & greet, see my post above - with the "holiday" and limited interest (2 people?) for Nov 1 someone else may want to coordinate a get together later in the week when the others interested (Cheryl/Ted and Kish) are also there?

You will not be able to please everyone when you schedule the party, just pick a date, get a place and let us all know....

Sorry, not interested in planning a meet and greet party or any type of party. We will have our son with us this trip, and this is a 35th birthday present trip to him from us. (It's his first time on the island). Only there for a week (our usual three week trip by ourselves is in March), so neither time nor interest in planning is on the agenda this time. However, would probably stop by if the soiree is on the Dutch side and in our time span.

Sorry, I was asking if anyone else wanted to coordinate another date since there are only 2 people available on the 1st and there was some interest later. We're not available later in the week but you all can get together.

Good luck, and have a great trip folks!
