Local Livin’: Baked With Love in Love City

Local Livin': Baked With Love in Love City 5

A while back, I was privileged enough to sit down for dinner with two dynamic and talented St. John born women to chat about their homegrown business in Coral Bay.  An ingenious build out of a shipping container with the lingering smells of freshly baked treats sits adjacent to the building that used to house Pickles in Paradise.  And within the walls of this shipping container, Ann Monsanto and Brenda Stephenson create magical, freshly baked flavors on par with the quality of a decadent corner bakery in Manhattan with the charm and hospitality of Love City.  Building their dreams, one muffin at a time.

Governor Bryan Loosens Restaurant and Beach Restrictions

Governor Bryan Loosens Restaurant and Beach Restrictions 11

Happy Hump Day! And, we are halfway through the week!  How’s everyone doing out there?  Things seem to have calmed down a WEE bit on St. John this past week.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s still super busy, but it doesn’t feel like we are bursting at the seams anymore.  And, seemingly, the government imposed mandates in regards to COVID-19 have remained effective through the Winter and Spring Break booms.  On Monday, Governor Bryan announced a few more small steps to loosen some of the current COVID restrictions in light of positive cases remaining low and vaccination distribution remaining high in the USVI.
