  1. Please confirm with The Fish Trap Restaurant that the are closing Aug 24 until early Oct. 693-9994. You did not have them on your list.

    • Hi Lonnie,

      Yes, we just confirmed with The Fish Trap. They will be closing August 23 and will reopen on October 4.

    • Many close because it is super slow in September/October. People on-island tend to take vacations, businesses renovate and tourists tend to stay away because of the potential for hurricanes and tropical storms.

  2. Asolare will be open in September. The only day we are not open is Sunday, starting Sept. 8. We are closed the first two weeks in Oct., reopening Oct. 15.
