Barbados After Dark
After Ambrosia, the 2010 Barbados Food & Wine and Rum Festival went late-night with a party on Second Street in Holetown: ABSOLUT Barbados After Dark. Second Street, at least dressed up in festival form with flashy purple lights and Lady Gaga playing on loud speakers, feels like the Buckhead of Barbados. Lots of bars and open-air clubs. There's a DJ booth set up, and tents sheltering some of the first bars at the festival that aren't 'open.' At midnight, while there was more Mount Gay Rum to be had, it was still pouring more rain than rum. A little later the rain cleared and there was dancing in the street.
