Friday night is ‘Fish Fry’ night at Oistens, Christhurch, in Barbados. The air is filled with the scent of snapper, marlin, tuna, and many other local fish being BBQed. Music calls hungry revellers from near and far to satisfy their craving for food and dance.
All this usually happens on a Friday, but this week as part of the Food, Wine and Rum Festival it happened on Thursday. There was karaoke at Lexie’s Bar and a steel band on the main stage.
I soaked up the atmosphere, wandering past the many vendors and restaurants before settling on one who, as well as serving delicious fish, also cooks up wicked Ital food.
Shame I had to work on Friday. I could have danced all night.
