More on the Taste of St. Thomas

On our third day we took the ferry to St. John. We had fun at Trunk Bay and ran into Wes, the owner of Captain Mayhem's. He invited us for a drink with his friends at Woody's Seafood Saloon.
This local dive and hangout at Cruz Bay is more famous for its beers on tap than for its cuisine. It is known to be one of Kenny Chesney's favorite spots. I ordered the BBC (Baileys Banana Colada) and Corey got a $1 Coors Light. We had some blackened shrimp and calamari. The food was actually really tasty. Wes and his friends took off, but we hung around to watch the Cardinals and Cubs game and met John and Deidre. Deidre used to live in St. John so she knew all the best spots on the island. Turns out, John was going on an interview in DC and they might move here. Our new friends invited us to dinner at Rhumb Lines. Rhumb Lines Restaurant encompasses the flavors of the Caribbean as well as Pacific Rim cuisines. Don't be afraid of spice if you dine at this restaurant! We had some of the best pad thai that I've ever tasted, but it was also the spiciest. Rhumb Lines had a great laid back atmosphere with a woman (T-Bird) playing acoustic guitar in the background. Lots and lots of fun and delicious food.
