Everyone is a Cub’s fan, right?
As the Cub’s enter the post-season in quest of the 2017 World Series, let’s review the best bar/restaurant in San Pedro to catch a Cub’s game.
When we visited there a few days in July, you could see that this was the place where the local Expats liked to hang.
The atmosphere is quite unique. Tropic Air and Island Maya planes are constantly landing behind Carlo and Ernie’s Runway Bar.
Ernie is one of the owners and doesn’t miss a chance to give up on glass-washing or bartending chores to sneak a peak at the big-screen TV when he hears Rizzo making contact.
And even though some of the Cub photos need updating, a 2016 World Series flag hangs proudly next to the other Cub’s photos.
I can see it proudly waving in the Belize Breeze from my perch at the square bar that seats about 25 customers.
Norman pours Linda a creamy-looking Bailey’s Colada (minus the chocolate at her request) and executes a perfect minty mojito for me.
He’s linda’s second cousin who grew up in back of her parent’s property in Orange Walk, but moved to Ambergris Caye a while back.
He pays close attention to his customers and has a drink ready for his regular expat crowd before they even make it to the bar.
He wears a Carlo and Ernie T-shirt over another shirt to catch the excess sweat. Even the Belizean breeze can’t keep up with his work ethic.
The Bar-B-Q is tasty and the sauce is tangy. Whether you have the pulled pork, ribs or chicken, you’ll be licking your fingers for every last taste.
During our day at the Carlo & Ernie’s, we had every type of drink imaginable, met a number of expats who were visiting to see if they wanted to make Ambergris Caye their permanent home, and met a bunch of new friends with the Cubs being a common bond.
If you see us at Carlo and Ernies, please introduce yourself and tell us your story. Just don’t tell us you’re a White Sox fan.
