Sports Zone at the CBA is ready for the World Cup, where is not?!

The Sports Zone at the CBA has free entry, food by Jacqui Tyson on sale and drinks on sale. I’ve heard it also has its own feed and not the poor quality feed from CVM. VIP seating and parking available. No wonder you have to get there early before the crowd.

Word has it that a company has bought out the main viewing area of Triple Century for World Cup so it’s continuously filled with their employees. Not a good look.

Tracks and Records and Cuddyz are definite NOs to view the World Cup or to even go and eat or drink for that matter. Extremely poor service and food quality. The screens can hardly even be viewed properly at Tracks. What a shame.

Dinner at the Seaside Grill, Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa, Montego Bay

It was the night to see what fine dining restaurants at the Hilton had to offer last week Thursday for the Rotaract District 7020 Conference. Of over 100 attendees, 32 dined at the Seaside Grill including myself. Our reservation was made weeks in advance and everyone was on time for their 8:00pm reservation excluding about 4 of us. So I was surprised to see them off to such a slow start.  By 8:20pm only some orders were taken and no appetizers had arrived as yet. I quickly contacted our Sales and Catering Manager who came down to the restaurant soon after. Then things started clicking.

I ordered at 8:30pm, immediately got my Lobster Bisque that was quite appetizing. We waited a little bit for our entrees that arrived at 9:05pm, but the wait was tolerable and quite worth it. I had the Seafood Mixed Grill with shrimp, fish and scallops kebab style accompanied by Cilantro Beurre Blanc, Rice and Vegetables. It was surely divine as the Cilantro Beurre Blanc sauce truly complemented the seafood well, as expected. Others were happy with their entrees, all of good serving sizes. Persons had Pork Loin, Grilled Swordfish Steak, West Indian Spiced Curry Shrimp, Beef Tenderloin and more. Clearly a wide range on the menu.

Sadly the Pie and Chocolate Cake may have given us diabetes, but the lucky ones had tasty Ice Cream and the divine entrees were still on our minds. A decent selection of wines were also available. So overall the Seaside Grill is a good choice for dinner at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa, Montego Bay.

Who is going home, gone home and who will top the groups for World Cup 2014?!

GROUP A:

Camaroon should be going home. Brazil may top the group as they meet Camaroon next. Mexico and Croatia to vie for 2 nd place.

GROUP B:

Spain has gone home. So has AustraliaNetherlands and Chile will face each other with 2nd place likely to face Brazil. Note that Van Persie will be sitting the next game out for the Netherlands due to 2 yellow cards.

GROUP C:

Greece and Japan should be going home with Columbia topping the group and Ivory Coast in second place. Though we still should keep an eye on Japan.

GROUP D:

England should be going home with Uruguay likely to follow. Uruguay still has a little hope but its all in Italy’s hands who should top the group with Costa Rica in 2nd. So Columbia will face either Costa Rica or Uruguay.

GROUPS E, F, G and H:

Matches to play out by Sunday, however top of the groups should be France, Argentina, Germany and Belgium respectively.

HAPPY VIEWING !!!

Updated Scores for World Cup 2014!

What a day!

Columbia has advanced to the knockout stage with their victory over the Ivory Coast and the Japan vs. Greece draw in Group C. The World Cup futures of Japan and Greece depend on their must win final match to have a chance of surpassing Ivory Coast into second place. Both teams only have one point after a scoreless draw today.

Wayne Rooney ties for 4th in England goal standings after he scored his first goal in the World Cup finals against Uruguay. He has tied with Michael Owen on 40 goals. But it was not enough. Luis Suarez played one of his best games ever and scored 2 goals for Uruguay, still giving them a glimmer of hope. Group D is one to watch to see how this all plays out.
