Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Rooftop bars over looking the Caribbean, awesome beach bars of Punta Cana, and somewhat sad news from Margaritaville. The Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up is a must read if you’re in love with the islands.

I just read Bahama Bob’s report that the 10 store Margaritaville restaurant chain was sold to a Brazilian company. I’ll let you read the details that are linked below, sad news indeed. I can understand why Buffett would sell the chain, he might be winding down and cashing out of businesses that he doesn’t want the responsibility of running any more. Whatever the reason is, it won’t quite be the same next time I wander in off Duval Street looking for a cold Landshark and juicy cheeseburger.

    Love your site, Ryan, and especially your links to and stories about beach bars! Beach bars are very dear to our hearts 😉 Our bar (and beach, and bungalow) searches are based in Florida but your site gives me a lot of good ideas, and eye-candy. Also, I have a “Travel Global, Drink Local” Team Cocktail t-shirt that is one of my faves. It’s well made and has a great message!
