Bougain Villa. Pierrette and Normand Tremblay have decided to put their beautiful Anguilla home up for sale so they can travel more. Normand has created a web site for the waterfront complex near Little Harbour, which is called Bougain Villa. Click Here for lots of pictures and full features. They have priced it to sell at $795,000. (That sounds like a lot, but you could not build their home for that price.)

Tête-à-Tête

New Years. Every restaurant on the island is having some kind of New Years bash and every band is employed. And the prices aren't too bad, about $100 per person. For example, Santorini Restaurant at the new CuisinArt resort has a Five Course Dinner for $100, plus live music featuring Resident Opera Singer Michael Amante, Resident Harpist Ruth Garita, plus Keith Gumbs and band. 498-2000. Or go to a DJ dance at Masara on Katouche Bay ($10 at the door) or Dine, Dance, Moet & Chandon, and Fireworks at Frangipani for $150 ($15 only for the dance and fireworks). All these choices taken from advertisements in this weeks issue of The Anguillian.

Please review Menus.ai - we have created a new Anguilla Restaurant Guide at menus.ai and we could use some feedback. Please take a look at send any corrections, additions, or suggestions to bgreen@news.ai - keep in mind that we are trying to make it easy to maintain, which is why the main directory is somewhat sparse.


Sunday, December 26, 1999

Lambert's Web Site. Roger Lambert (email: lambertventures@worldnet.att.net) writes:
I first made a web page: www.lambertventures.com for making an advertisement to benefit Mac Brooks for Masara Resort and Caribella Beach Resort. We have been friends for almost 20 years and I wanted he and his family to be of benefit because I have always believed that Anguilla should benefit Anguillians.
Roger's site has detailed information and booking services for Masara Resort on Katouche Bay, plus on Barnes Bay, Caribella Resort and Arbron Villas (owned by Arthur Richardson).

More On Blanchard's Restaurant. Melinda Blanchard, the executive chef, sent me her dinner menu and new take-out, using Email attachements for the first time (and successfully). You can study them (and drool) on the News.ai Blanchards page.

The new menu looks yummy: Crispy Crusted Snapper Filet drizzled with a Thai citrus glaze.. $35. Phone ahead for dinner orders (497-6100). Picnic orders can be placed the night before. A few items that caught my eye on the new takeout menu:

Hummus with crackers $6, Creamy dill potato salad $4, Whole roast chicken (about 3 libs) stuff with lemons and thyme $16, Coconut cupcake (1 large) $3.
Catering is available from the regular menu and the take out menu.

Discuss Internet Access With Your Hotel. Anguilla has had Hot-Inet access for 4 years, but some hotels do not know about it. This communication option gives you Internet access for 25 cents per minute without opening an account at the ISP. It appears like a long distance charge or a 900 number. However, unless you discuss this with the hotel and ensure they know about it, their switchboard and accounting system may charge you the standard long distance rate plus surcharge (could be as much as $3.00 per minute).


Chinese Food. The Light House restaurant in South Hill has a wide selection of chinese dishes. Click here for their entire menu.


Tonight - Full Moon Bash. Dec 22, from 7:30pm until... Serenity . Shoal Bay. 497-3328. Come for dinner or join them on the beach for your after dinner drink. Music and free hors d'ouevres.
