day 2 - Started with wonderful croissants from Bread n'Butter grocery in Oyster Pond. A visit to Tijon to restock my glass shelf. Discovered that AA had broken three of my pieces, a stop at Marriot Market which was pretty busy with ships in town, purchases at Secret Spot, and zipper purses, lunch at Friars Beach Bar, a cheeseburger15E. Got my Caribbean Card from Angie. Drunken Ribs at The Palm's, unprofitable stop at Princess Casino, finally an entertaining stop at Red Piano to hear Susan and Cliff. They really get the place jumping. Presented them with late wedding present. Long drive home to OBBR. PIctures to follow.

Hi Norm! Sorry AA broke your beautiful pieces. Can you get reimbursed?

Is Red Piano still allowing smoking?

Scubaman, it’s Magic of the Caribbean card, through their FB page or via Angie Stmartin. It’s brand new. Lots of good discounts.

Norm--how was the road to FBBC? Did you go down the road directly there, or the one that comes out at the other end by Kali's?? Sorry to hear AA broke your pieces. Hindsight is 20-20, but I would have put them in carry-on... Have a great rest of your stay!

Carol, My pieces were in my carry-on small hardside suitcase. We were on a regional jet, fully booked, and the agent said I had to have it stored with luggage. In retrospect,...never again. There was plenty of room and others with bigger carry-ons.
The first part of road to FBBC is worse than ever. Once you get to Kali's there's a much improved road.

I looked at the facebook page but doesn't say what it is or what you get. Pretty vague.

I have found with some of the past discount programs, some of the businesses are clueless when it comes to honoring them and what the discount is supposed to be.

That was the way it was with the caribbean card in the past. Or some wouldn't honor it saying the didn't renew the discount. Like to know how this one differs.

I went there. Not much info. Saw a few but not much info. Kind of like Jeff burgers. Have to pay money before you find out what the so called 300 discounts are.

They have a sign on the piano that says no smoking at the piano. Seen people smoking at other seats.

Just another way to make revenue, read between the lines. Four letter word, starts with “S” ends with “M”. Just me saying, we have been in the same boat wondering about those cards long ago. If it’s too good to be true, it normally is............

They have built little tables on the beach at FBBC since we were there. Looks great!

That looks like a different lady at Secret Spot. The one we've always seen there is blonde...
