As the island goes, who knows but it was from a local source who has had business interests on the island. There appeared to be some land clearing going on in the area around Topper's when I was just on the island.
i remember years ago when Toppers opened up....I was talking to Topper himself..and am pretty sure that he told me that the land that his establishment is on is owned by HIM. The previous establishment there was called Banana's?? but Topper had them leave, because he wanted to open up his own place. This goes back now many years..
The previous place was called Bananas. I think Bananas ceased to exist for other reasons from what I understand. The couple who ran it went to Anguilla and supposedly started a restaurant there. Not sure of the ownership of the land but I was told by another long time business owner very recently owner PDP owned it. There are some local sources I trust as far as information and some I do not.
The murder of Mike and Thelma still haunts me today and the fact the animal who murdered them worked at Toppers for 4 months... It is fitting that Ocean Club was demolished and Toppers has lost his lease?
