August Business of the Month

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

I am a pizza lover.  Pepperoni, olives, and green peppers.  Honey crust basted with olive oil.  Roasted garlic marinara sauce.  The previous three sentences are usually enough to set me on a dead sprint into town.  By the time I make it to a restaurant that serves pizza, they usually ask if I’m ok.  I used to make an attempt at collecting myself by breathing slowly and then justifying my inexplicably ravenous look by replying that I hadn’t had a bite all day.  Until one day when I used that excuse and the guy bit me.

Well, my business of the month serves the best pizza on the island and they don’t bite!  The winner is…


The Manta Ray Cafe

This place is awesome.  From the first time I visited, their service has been excellent.  The dining area has a great view of the ocean and there are lots of friendly fish to keep you entertained if you choose to sit by the rails.  They have a great selection of drinks and can always recommend the right combination…ever tried pineapple pizza with Pina Coladas?  This is the place to experience that unique taste, and many more.

I look forward to seeing some of your comments about the Manta Ray Cafe for those of you who have been lucky enough to enjoy it for yourselves.  For those of you who have, please share with the rest of us your favorite dish so we can try it next time we go back!

Comedy on Vieques Island

Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

So 1,000 people walk into a bar holding job applications.

The bartender says,  ”What do I look like, a Google TV ad contest?”

Thank you, thank you.  I accept PayPal if you want to leave a tip!
