Ribbiz is ready for the World Cup!

Great TV logistics, you can see one anywhere you sit, but for matches with favourites you better get there early due to crowding.

Popular items such as the Salmon Burger and Seasoned Fries may go quickly. Prices of cues and a few other items have gone up slightly but the food is good, burgers are a decent size, service is good and the environment is full of energy. Ofcourse, there is also the convenience of having Just Bet nearby.

 

Gabby from SuGa Lifestyle Celebrates her Birthday at the Blue Window

Gabby took it to the poolside of The Jamaica Pegasus for her birthday last week, where their new Restaurant, the Blue Window hosts their weekly Tuesday night Grill. The poolside was buzzing with patrons from about 7:30pm and General Manager, Peter Hilary was in eyeshot for most of the night being a perfect host, also monitoring staff throughout.

I was initially seated and served my choice of soup from the two kinds offered for the night, then I was free to head to the buffet tables, where I could pick, choose and refuse. There were a variety of options from Jerked Chicken to mouth-watering Beef, accompanied by many sides, to a wide array of Salads, but the highlight was the Pasta station with Pepper Shrimp. The desserts were pleasant to the palate as well, including Chocolate Cakes, Cheesecakes, Tarts, Gizzadas and much more.

The entertainment was good and I thoroughly enjoyed the Happy Birthday song dedicated to me, surely putting a bright smile on my face on my special night. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. For an ‘All-you-can-eat’ Buffet with lovely ambience, food and service, $2960JMD per person, tax included (Beverages separately*) is a steal of a deal.

Check out the Blue Window’s Tuesday Night Grill by The Jamaica Pegasus poolside tonight!

 

 

Congratulations to the 5-time NBA Champions, the San Antonio SPURS !!!

Congratulations to the San Antonio SPURS for their 5th NBA Championship title in franchise history, joining the Celtics, Lakers and Bulls as the only team to accomplish that feat. The Spurs won the series 4-1 last Sunday night in blowout fashion with a final score of 104 to the Miami Heat’s, 87.

LeBron James had a blazing start in the first quarter and ended with a commendable 31 points, but nothing could stop or stand in the way of the Spurs achieving their redemption title as it slipped through their fingers last year. This rematch was also a big hit with television viewers compared to last year. The unselfishness, teamwork and ball movement of the Spurs was phenomenal with superb execution. All players made a significant contribution to the title, however out of so much talent, an MVP had to be chosen, young Kawhi Leonard who scored 22 points in the final game. Imagine what he could have done if he wasn’t in foul trouble.

Special mention also has to be made to veterans Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker. Tim Duncan is now the all-time Double-Doubles leader in NBA Playoffs history passing Magic Johnson and also passed Kareem Abdul-Jabar to set the all-time record for most minutes played in play off history.

One word, GINOBILIIIIII! Manu redeemed himself majorly after 2 years of horrible inconsistency, but showed everyone how hard he is on himself and how much of a true competitor he is by both facilitating unforgettable plays and scoring huge necessary shots.

Tony Parker had his ups and downs this season and didn’t even score until the 4th quarter in Sunday’s game, but once he started scoring he was on fire. His style of play and speed is always a beauty to watch and he said this was the sweetest victory for him yet.

So what’s next?! According to Tony Parker and Owner, Peter Holt, the Spurs should be back to try to defend their title next year. Tim and Manu may play until they die. Gregg Popovich would also like to coach beyond this year. Congrats to him as well for an excellent season, many years of great coaching and the ability to bond with all players. The relationship Pop has with the Spurs is on a different level compared to other teams.

So until next year, Go Spurs Go!

Disappointment at the 146th Belmont Stakes

California Chrome tied for 4th with Wicked Strong, falling short in the bid to win the first Triple Crown since 1978.

Tonalist was 1st, Commissioner 2nd and Medal Count 3rd.

California Chrome, without a ‘Champion’ hereditary line and an owner from the working class was America’s favourite to the win the race. So let us see what will happen next year.

Half Moon Booth Outstanding at Table Talk Jamaica Food Awards

The food at the Half Moon Booth was outstanding for me at the Table Talk Jamaica Food Observer Awards held last night.

Their lamb loin was cooked to perfection, succulent to taste with their special sauce. Also, jerk yam risotto, really?! Who knew that would be a hit. Kudos for creativity and good quality.

The booth also had delicious chocolate treats and smoked marlin sushi bites.

Special mention to the CPJ and Bigg’s BBQ Restaurant and Bar Booth that was in one area. Their design and decor by Tai Flora Luxe stood out to me and was surely the best. It gave you the feeling that you were in a modern-day tavern for some good wine and a wide variety of cheese and pork.
