You know you live in a pretty amazing spot on earth when the Travel Channel and HGTV consistently feature your little slice of heaven in their programming. As you may know, the Travel Channel was in town earlier this month to film a program on St. John Brewers and Angel’s Rest. Well tonight will be no different, as HGTV will feature a familiar island couple in one of its popular programs.
Tonight’s show – Caribbean Life on HGTV – will feature the owners of Sam & Jack’s, the delicious deli over at The Marketplace. Caribbean Life will chronicle Samantha and Erik’s dream of moving from New England to the Caribbean. Here’s a bit of their story straight from their website:
“Founded in 2011, the goal of Sam & Jack’s Deli has always been to provide a fresh, gourmet affordable dining option for local St. John residents and tourists alike. What began with simple sandwiches has grown to include a full menu of gourmet comfort food, grab and go dinners, house-made desserts, a large catering menu and private chef services.
“Leaving the New England winters behind for good, owners Erik and Samantha purchased the deli in 2013 as part of a larger effort to simplify life. Although their backgrounds are in the corporate world (Erik was a civil engineer for a boutique firm in Portsmouth, NH and Samantha was a commercial real estate paralegal with a large firm based in Boston), their passion has always been food, wine and travel.”
The episode will premier tonight, March 22, at 9:30 p.m. EST on HGTV. It will replay tomorrow, March 23, at 12:30 a.m. EST and again on Thursday, April 2, at 5:30 p.m. EST.
