We were @ Iguana Bar @ Capt Olivers on Saturday for happy hour and were informed by Ali that there was no "2 for 1" happy hour any more!! $5 for a 6oz wine, $4 cocktails, seems that maybe the only "special" is a $2.50 beer. Just a head's up....we go there typically once/week so unhappy to hear this news!!

$4.00 for a cocktail is an issue?? Seems pretty reasonable to me...... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/dine.gif" alt="" />

Me, too. Two Mai Tais in Hawaii ran us thirty dollars with taxes and tip in Honolulu and one can of tonic water on the cruise ship was $3.51 and they weren't even served in real glasses..... But if it matters, the fruit in the Mai Tai was fresh..... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" />

And I agree with you, just saying it's not 2 for 1 anymore!! When you are used to a $28 happy hour tab and it's $56...that's quite a big difference!! Would like to see at least a bigger wine glass <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Wink.gif" alt="" />

Wish I could get a glass of wine in the US for $4 a glass.
Why a bigger glass for a inexpensive wine?

Actually, there is a little bar not far from me here in Florida that has (cheap) wine for $3 a glass at happy hour! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

Made it to Iguana this afternoon while waiting on unit housekeeping. Ali was his usual up-beat smiling self. Mixes a very MEAN <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Hairy.gif" alt="" /> long island ice tea. The view and breeze off the ocean along the dock is so great. Been toasty here.
Travel safely

I think she was just stating what she paid in Honolulu. It was all about value. I think we all are willing to pay whatever we want if the experience warrants it.

i believe the OP's reason for this thread is to give a heads up that the HH prices have changed at the Iguana Bar (in her case the tab went from $28 to $56)...so what's the point of comments minimizing the value of her information by bringing up prices in other parts of the world?.."context", look it up

Understood, but Pat's comment was a reply to $4.00 cocktails not being out of order. "Out of context" look it up

Wow, you have them using words in quotes. This is turning into a real brawl over your honor. Pass the quacamole and let's watch them go at it. I hope they get in a few more posts before the Quakers shut down the thread. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" />

Islandboi--a little less heat is needed here. Pat would be the last one to minimize anyone else's comments. It's just a message board...

This is not "just a message board", this is a messaging board about St Maarten and even sometimes about the French side. Bite your tongue and then soothe the discomfort with a glass of wine.

Here at home, 9:17 in the morning is a BIT early for wine! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" /> Now, I could do with a mimosa, if I wasn't at work. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" />

How much does a mimosa cost at Iguana Bar??? <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Devil.gif" alt="" />

Just read this and while I'm a bit surprised at the sniping, have at it!

My comment was meant to imply the value of the drink is in the eye (hand?) of the holder, be it a $4.00 cocktail in SXM or a $15.00 Mai Tai in Honolulu, and nothing more.

If you have a problem with that, c'est la vie! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

No. As I said, Pat is the last one to denigrate anyone's comments here. However, sniping at others is not tolerated.
