In a post to their Facebook page this morning, the owners of Lime Out, a floating bar located in St. John in the US Virgin Islands, announced that they were closing. The reasons presumably are related to issues with the local government. From their Facebook post:
“≪ C L O S E D ≫ Thank you so much for all the love + support! 💚 ∕∕∕ We will be closed for now. We are working closely with the government to come up with a short term + long term solution! ∕∕∕ Please contact Chelsea Baranowski at Chelsea@LimeOutVI.com if you would like to write a letter. You can also sign our petition at https://www.change.org/p/virgin-islands-dpnr-keep-lime-out-…. To view more information about Lime Out’s economic impact, environmental sustainability, location + more by gong to our website at LimeOutVi.com/LoveLimeOut. We hope you se you on the water!”
News of St. John first posted articles about the issue in this post about http://newsofstjohn.com/stjs-floating-taco-bar-may-be-shut-down-owners-asking-for-publics-support/ and the response from residents of Round Bay, the bay where the boat is currently moored.
Both of the aforementioned articles represent two differing points of view. Hopefully we are able to see a compromise reached soon.
