St. Johnians need a vacation, too. Living on a rock in the ocean has its own challenges. The simple fact is that everyone needs a break.
Many restaurant owners find mid-August and September to be good times to cut back hours, if only to try and lessen the odds of having their businesses affected by severe weather like tropical storms or worse.
Ruth Ernst, the owner of St. John Spice maintains a Web page which keeps track of who’s open and who’s closed, and when. If you’re headed to the island, it’s a good idea to print this page out and them, as a last check, call before you go – just to make sure there hasn’t been a change in plans.
