Milo's store, 1975
Milo's opened a little restaurant next to their store. And for while the only thing on the menu was a egg salad sandwich. One day I went to have lunch and there was a handwritten sign on the door that said closed for their lunch break.
For a long time Milo Pazís property used to be the end of the village on the northern end. It was so until Paradise Hotel was opened just past Miloís and then the village simply expanded and blossomed all the way up north. First there was Miloís Hotel with the cemetery directly in front of it. Then there was Miloís Store. And which child in the 1980ís doesnít remember with fondness the Arcade Games that attracted hundreds of children at Miloís place. Indeed Miloís place has undergone a lot of transformation as was the time when they were hosts to the famous Sandalís Pub. Then there was Miloís Ice- all of which has always been with the very professional and hospitable service of its proprietors Milo Paz Sr. and Mrs. Velie Paz. It can be said with much certainty that even though it was the end of the village, Miloís Place has always been a very popular place for this island, town and community.
