What's to do in August - September??? - 08/18/05 02:45 PM

Our previous four visits have been January/February. Our routine was BCs, Palapa Bar & Hammock House on Sunday, Canucks on Monday...Does the same go for low season? Anything new or different? Suggestions welcome. Thanks.

September features two major Belizean holidays (10th and 21st)- there are parades and celebrations for both. Fun and lots of local color.
September is also the time when a lot of restaurants take time off for refurbishing and a general vacation.
September is also when we spend a lot of time watching the weather - Iris and Keith were unwelcome September visitors.
If anybody wants a hint about October - Halloween is a big deal in San Pedro - tons of parties with prizes for costumes (the rest of the country is not into Halloween, but SP does it up BIG).

Diane - thanks for the info. Unfortunately, we will miss the two holidays. In town last week of August. Is the routine the same then as far as music offerings, etc.?

I have just returned from AC. Things were very quiet.

As for music offerings, Dennis Wolfe plays all over the place still - BCs on Thursday and Sunday nights (6:30 - 10:30pm I believe).

The Lady Sharon is headed for protective waters so she is not sunset sailing frown

Skinny has closed the Hammock House for the hurricane season. He plays at Mambos (or is it Mangos?), Fidos & Tackle Box (Mon/Tue/Wed respectively I believe).

As previously mentioned by Simon, there's a new band called 20/20 - did not check them out but they appear to play Fido's several nights a week.

Restaurants:
Casa Picasso is closing at the end of August and will reopen in November with some new menu treats laugh

Yes, the band 20/20 plays at Fidos Courtyard on Wed. and Sat. every week. You guys really need to check them out. They do a great blend of old and new rock, plus lots of blues and funk to get the booties shakin'

"September features two major Belizean holidays (10th and 21st)- there are parades and celebrations for both. Fun and lots of local color. "

Could you advise what Holiday is on the 10th? any events to go see? does anything close down?
