I survived! Although my liver is still a little swollen, I don't think the transplant will be necessary, CabinGirl. Before I got to the island, I thought I knew the place inside and out just from everybody’s posts. Little did I realize the shear volume of beer/booze that would pass my gullet. In short, it was more fun than I imagined and a good report came back with me to So Cal. And we didn't even hit all the spots we planned on. Just give me the PIB Resort pool, a few bucks, Ashley pouring the drinks/opening the beers and Chuck force feeding me food when it looks like I might need it, and I'm fine. The Roundhouse had an awesome band playing on Sunday night, but I was too loaded from an 11 hour stint at the pool bar to notice the name of the band. You're all right on the money about the Beer Barrel. We went in there early on Saturday and we were the only people in there besides the 5 wanna-be's at the front door and the 15 or so people behind the bar. They certainly don't act like my cash was important to them. Mr. Ed’s was top notch as well as the other 8-10 bars we forced ourselves into. We managed to host a bachelorette party since we had a big room and 10 of them shared 2 rooms. And ahhhhh yes....the CHEER MOMS. I only met a couple of them, and for the short time we spent with them was a interesting to say the least. And yes MIDNIGHT, I did have a good time. There was a lot more to the weekend then I can put here, but it was definitely a great time. Everyone we met (except for one nut-ball stalker in a bachelor party at the PIB Resort) was great! Next time I'll have to check out the docks though. It just seemed like we were too busy drinkin' at bars to make that looooong walk. Thanks for all the info to all Bay-Talkers!

You bet your bottom dollar we had a good time, Taz! The only thing that kind of threw me off was the attitude of a LOT of tenders in some of the bars. I've been to a few other party destinations around the country and I've never come across the scale of bad or grumpy service to the scale of which I encountered. I mentioned the Beer Barrel, which was bar far the worst. But there were a number of other bars, which I'll keep un-named, that had staff who seemed not to be interested in making a good impression. But, I guess that when the island is pretty much sold out the entire summer and the bars are making cash hand over fist, impressions takes a hit. Not to worry though, it's not going to keep me from coming back to this little gem of a party destination. The places I DID find great, friendly service was the PIB Resort pool bar, Frosty's (including the late night staff at the pizza joint!), the big place with all the decks on the water (I can't remember the name), Pasquale's for breakfast (I think the waitress was trying to get us drunk...and succeeded) and the Boat House. We spent some time in Mr Ed's and liked it, but way too busy for the bar tenders to be personable. Anyway, there's my $.02. Yes, CabinGirl, we’ll be heading out there next year. Probably around the same time or maybe New Years. And as far as sharing stories here, I just thought you wouldn’t want to hear about the charity bake sale, the hop-scotch tournament and the “Save the Bark Beetle” convention we attended while on the island. Have a great day!
