Once and for all. Where EXACTLY is the BC BBQ and what does "BC" stand for? I've heard so many talk about it, and would like to have my birthday there. It's on Sunday afternoon. Last year when we arrived, we asked about the beach BBQ and nobody seemed to know what I was talking about. We were directed to one that was held at night, on a Wednesday I believe, and now know that was not the right one. It was in front of the Holiday Hotel if my memory serves me correctly. It was okay, but not very lively. Can any of you help?

By george, my dear Watson, I think you've got it!!!! Okay. Now I'm on the right track. Thanks Jane. Don't know why I didn't ask. Didn't occur to me at the moment. But thanks!!!! Any other info about it? Cost of BBQ, exact time it's open, is there a Palapa bar still standing? Mixed drinks? Blue drinks? (choo choo??) etc. etc. Basically.... Is it a good place for a party? Opinions?
Oh!!! And where could we get a birthday cake on a Sunday? We arrive Saturday afternoon...

Deb! I am glad you where asking this because I had no idea where the BBQ was either. I only knew of the Lions Club BBQ on Saturday night where all the local folks go and I would love to meet lots of locals/expats etc.
I also heard of a nice BBQ at Ramon's but I am sure that was not the one you where looking for right?

Palapa is the place to be after the BBQ at BC's. Even Bruce gives up the grill and comes by late afternoon. Every Sunday the whole local gang is there. Casey runs a great party. Duh....

The cost of the BBQ is between $9-$13 US depending on the combination of yummies. It starts at 11 a.m. and goes to about 3 p.m. BC's would definitely be a great place for a party, as well as the Palapa (a short distance north of the cut). BC's is more central but the Palapa is...oh boy, you will just have to see for yourself. Either will accomodate your requirement for adult beverages in large quantities should one so desire. (Both have been known to provide alcoholic provisions in "funny" colors.)

We have obtained birthday cakes three times in the past couple years. Charlene has each time managed to provide the infamous "Better than Sex Cake" through one of her lady friends. (Approx $22 US) I'm not sure if she can do so this time but it's worth a try. Word of caution..it is desirable to have some sort of refrigeration for same. It will take days to finish it, but you WILL finish it. It is MOST important to return the cake pan...such things are expensive to replace. You might want to give Char a note regarding the cake at bcbar@btl.net

Thursday evening at BC's is worth the trip also. This is when Art (endearingly "Coonass") does his Cajun cookin'thing. $7-$11US and the food is only part of the entertainment. Starts around 5-5:30 p.m.

Give Char a hug for Mrs CC (SWMBO) if you see her, and tell we'll be there for two weeks the 26th.


(Ooops. Forget the hug thing, I just saw you are going in June not this weekend.)
