What happens on Election day in the US Virgin Islands…..

usvi-govAs many of you may or may not know, the people of the US Virgin Islands do not have the right to vote in the Presidential Election, as we are a territory, not a state.  We can only vote for our local government officials, and a representative to congress.

The United States Constitution grants congressional voting representation to U.S. states,  and the President and the Vice President shall be elected by electors chosen by the States.

So we are not allowed to VOTE, but we do have the RIGHT TO ASSEMBLE, and that we do better than most!

Virgin Islanders love getting together for every and any reason possible: From a yearly Chili Cook off, a King of the Wings competition, Christmas picnics, Birthday parties and Political rallies are often held on the beach or in parking lots with lots of food, drinks and music.

Election day should be no different so Iggies Beach Bar & Grill, known as the “Place for Good Times”  on
St. Thomas, with nightly entertainment, good food, games and a great atmosphere, is throwing a Red White & Blue Election Party on November 8, inviting all to come celebrate unity among “all de people dem”

Iggies is promising a Good Time no matter who wins the election. So, kick off your shoes, put on your best Red, White and Blue’s, and stop by Iggies to party the night away. There will be a special on “Presidente” beer buckets along with many themed election cocktails.

TV’s will keep you up to date on the election, the drink specials will help you from caring too much…. and the Band will keep playing!

Ryan, the chef will make sure there is great American Fare being served, like an All American super tasty BBQ and Apple Pie along with the regular menu. See you on da beach at Iggies.



 Bolongo Bay Beach Resort 2016 Presidential Election Cocktails

  • Trumpical Punch: This swirl of controversy mixes up USVI strawberry and raspberry rum, topped with a comb over of cranberry juice. Served on the rocks, it’s going to be “huuuuge” and “make America great again.”
  • Chillary: Coconut rum, blue curacao, splash of pineapple juice and coconut cream become “stronger together” when shaken. Unlike 33,000 emails, this is served uncharacteristically straight-up.
  • Rum for the Border: Can’t handle the craziness? Start a new life with this mix of coconut, pineapple, citrus and banana rums and fruit punch for the win.
  • Screw’d Either Way: If the final two candidates lack “ap-peel” let this mix of orange vodka, orange juice and a splash of Sprite drdemocrat
    own the sorrows. Served on the rocks…with a chaser of “hard place.”
  • Server Dilemma: The secret is out…banana liquor, blackberry brandy and pineapple juice with a splash of grenadine. Served on the rocks, it can only be ordered through Iggies private email server.
  • Under Audit: The ingredients are under audit. Happens every year. Surely everyone understands. While this information is classified, Bolongo Bay is willing to release them, but only to guests who visit.
