The Rewind: Cruzan Foodie Rum & Rosé Experience

Q the Cruzan Foodie - October 3, 2018
Pink and white bendable wine glasses were the perfect way to enjoy the cocktails, drinks, and rosé wine being poured at Cruzan Foodie Rum & Rosé Experience

Endorsed by the USVI Department of Tourism and sponsored by Viya, this end-of-summer soiree is designed to encourage locals to experience something a bit different while simultaneously attracting a new brand of visitors to St. Croix …

Q the Cruzan Foodie - September 17, 2018
Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles

It only took ten years but I finally made it to Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in California! If you’ve visited the Los Angeles area, there are few restaurants and eateries you’re told are a must during your visit. In-N-Out Burger is usually at the top of that list. The other is Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles. I have been to the LA/Anaheim area three times in …

Look Trouble Now: Ubersoca Cruise 2017 Review

Q the Cruzan Foodie - December 29, 2017
Ubersoca Cruise 2017

Ubersoca Cruise 2017 was, by far, one of the best travel experiences I’ve had to date. The combination of sweet soca music, the essence of Caribbean Carnival, great people from all over the world and events on board geared towards the love of soca makes this event a must for anyone who considers themselves a lover of soca music. Between the live artist performances, themed …

Hurricane Irma

On September 20th, Hurricane Maria made landfall on St. Croix with category 5 winds causing much devastation and damage to the island paradise I’ve been blessed to call home.

Hurricane Irma

On Wednesday September 6th, Hurricane Irma made landfall in my home islands of the U.S. Virgin Islands. This super storm has been categorized as the largest system ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean and caused an insurmountable amount of damage, specifically to St. Thomas & St. John.

Crop Over 2017: 1Love Concert Review

Q the Cruzan Foodie - August 21, 2017
1Love Concert

Fete Rating (On a scale of 1-5): 5 My rating for the 1Love Concert is based primarily on the fact that two of the biggest soca artists were on stage TOGETHER! Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin were the headliners for this remarkable concert experience and it was as fantastic of a performance as one would expect! We went with the VIP ticket, which included a …

Crop Over 2017: Caesar’s Army A.M.Bush BIM

Q the Cruzan Foodie - August 17, 2017
Barbados Crop Over Festival 2K17

Fete Rating (On a scale of 1-5): 5 Caesar’s Army A.M.Bush BIM – you were absolutely epic! I have been a #Roman since A.M.Bush 2012 debut for Trinidad Carnival. While nothing will ever compare to that initial year, Caesar’s Army A.M.Bush BIM came pretty close. I’ll compare getting an A.M.Bush package to being on the waiting list for a kidney, a heart or some other …
