NANNY CAY, Tortola, VI- Despite the devastation of hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017, many in the Virgin Islands were still able to ring in the New Year, 2018, in a festive way.

Among the places of choice to break the New Year were the Watering Hole and Aromas Cigar and Wine Bar in Road Town, Captain Mulligan’s Restaurant and Bar at Nanny Cay, Tortola and of course Foxy’s in Jost van Dyke.

Captain Mulligan’s, where the action was at!

It was in full swing at Captain Mulligan’s Restaurant and Bar on Nanny Cay, thanks to the energetic and quality performance of Final Faze Band, with the brother and sister combination of Miriam and Mark Morris Jr belting out various tunes to keep patrons hyped for the countdown to New Year’s.

The only thing that was missing was a larger crowd to witness and benefit from the delivery of the talented local band and the party atmosphere that was created.

Miriam was particularly sensational with her covers of Trinidad and Tobago soca queen Destra Garcia.

Many persons took to the dancefloor to buggy down and to express their joy of seeing it through to another year.

According to Proprietor of Captain Mulligan’s Restaurant & Bar, Randy George, he was pleased to have the presence of Final Faze Band, who previously would perform at Foxy’s on Jost van Dyke.

“They have been playing at Foxy’s for Old Year’s for the past five years or so but wanted to give something for the local people this year,” Mr George commented about Final Faze Band.

Patrons of Captain Mulligan’s Restaurant and Bar will also have more to look forward to for 2018, especially with the ongoing expansion of the popular and internationally renowned hangout spot.

The legendary Foxy’s

Over at Foxy’s on the sister island of Jost van Dyke, the party was not as big as previous years but the atmosphere was certainly joyous.

The legendary restaurant and bar was still able to attract a number of tourists from the United States, Canada and as far as Europe.

Patrons were entartained by Mystix Dino Band, among others.

The iconic Jost van Dyke resident and owner of Foxy’s, Philicianno 'Foxy' Callwood, OBE was also on hand and, while giving his respect to Irma, thanked the many persons who assisted Jost van Dyke to get back on its feet following the destruction of Hurricane Irma.

“I just want to hold this mike and tell you all you all again after that lady they call Irma, that we can get out here and do something like this for everybody to enjoy. But I want to let you know that if it was not for Kenny Chezney and his foundation there is no way we would have seen Jost van Dyke the way it is tonight. So I am here to tell you it’s not thanks to me alone, its thanks to Kenny Chezney and the Puerto Rican Navy and our friends from St Croix and a few friends from the American Virgin Islands.”
