Anyone know if the cave bar at Grotto Bay is still open? That was a fun place with all the black lights on the stallagmites & stallagtites hanging and the music pumpin hard.

We got marriend at Grotto Bay, my Best Man was a big black dude that I met in that cave bar the night before. Also had an underground pond that the drunk people would skinny dip in.

What a hoot!

Thanks fellas, never realized how many of u actually have visited the rock..very lovely place with the people to go with it.. Swizzle is definiately a great place to visit, as well as many other bars, beaches and since its only a 2hr flight out of NYC it makes for a short hop..

kreed I'm a school teacher..lol but i'll be sure to take u around during your stay here..and if u and d fam want a tour of the island i will be more than willing to take you around..

Paul, whats up bud, I still have that V looking the same as when it left Fl. Thanks for the kind words..hope you can visit as well..

qaberdeen, does Derek Simons still race offshore down in Bermuda? I remember him running a 24 Skater with tripple 2.5EFI's that flat out rocked! I remember watching him thread the needle through the old railroad trestles airborne at well over 100! Man, he could drive that boat!

...correct me if I am wrong but I believe the often played Freeze Frame footage of the 24 Skater submarining is Derek!

Good to hear, I've got pics of his boats going back to the mid 80's. He's sure got endurance hanging in that game for so long! I used to meet up with him and his buds in the Grotto cave bar years ago.

Man, we gotta get back there!

Thanks for the pics.
