I lived on St. Thomas early 1980 through late 1982 (I was in my early 20's). Spent a lot of time on Morningstar Beach and remember Rick and his brilliant bartending skills. I lived up in Lerkenlund with Carlos ?? and Dale Mullins, the then manager of Megan's Bay Resort. I remember when Jimmy Buffett played at Rosie O'Grady's. A guy named Paul owned that bar. I had been at Syb's the night that Liz got shot. Terrible! Oh, and Studio 54...got a black eye on the dance floor one night. I worked for Warren Baugh, the CPA located above Drake's Alley. Foxy's Wooden Boat Race...do they still have that? I've been back, but it has changed drastically and I prefer St. John now. Still sailing but have much shorter season here in the Boston area. I had the time of my life!

Would love to hear from any of my friends from way back...

I lived and worked in St Thomas about 1980 to 1981, I worked for a company that was building the cable TV system. Lived at Larry's Hideaway at Hull bay for about 6 months then moved to a trailer house up Hull Bay Rd that had a great view of Megans Bay. There was a gal living at Larry's Hideaway for a while when I was there and I remember her taking a job downtown at a Bar named Rosie O'Gradys I think. Her name was Pam and I think she was from Boston. Cute petite gal, always wondered about her and how things turned out for her.

I was the world’s worst bartender at Bartolino’s Dec 1981-May 1982. It was my first bar tending job and everyone wanted a fruity cocktail like a Pina Colada (which I had never made before!). Best memory was kitchen crew meal where we ate daily chef’s catch. I remember a waitress - Julie. Bart never interacted except to frown at my terrible drinks!  Did the topless sunning at Morningside. Lived in a group of cottages off of Crown Mountain road. I remember a Ronnie and her young son David lived there too.

Don't know how many of these original and ancient posters are still looking at this forum - I knew almost all the folks mentioned - worked Fat City and Flying Fish in the 70's - played 2 on 2 volleyball most days at Morningstar beach and still live here in STT - saw many changes in 40+ years for sure - many of the names mentioned have gone to the beaches in the sky and are missed - the characters that lived in STT in the 70's and early 80's are the people novels, movies and legends use for examples!!

So true and I think may of the folks dreaming about moving to the USVI's are envisioning that lifestyle.  Fortunately or unfortunately, that was a different time, not likely to repeat itself anytime soon.
