Good Friday = No Alcohol Sales for Most of the Day in USVI & BVI

You should give the Heineken 0.0 beer a try if you’re in the VI this Friday.

Today’s post is for all of my readers who enjoy indulging a bit while on vacation. 🍹🍻🍾🍷

For those of you who will be in the US Virgin Islands or over in the British Virgin Islands this Friday, alcohol sales will be restricted due to the Good Friday holiday.

Here in the US Virgin Islands – St. John, St. Thomas and St. Croix – there will be no alcohol sales throughout the day and until 4 p.m. on Friday, March 29th. This means you cannot purchase alcoholic drinks in the grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurants or bars until 4 p.m. that day. At that time, the restriction is lifted. Beer and wine sales are permitted during this time.

Over in the British Virgin Islands – Jost van Dyke, Tortola, Norman Island, Cooper Island – Virgin Gorda, etc. – all alcohol, beer and wine sales are prohibited until 6 p.m. on Friday, March 29th. This means no Painkillers at the Soggy Dollar Bar, no beers at Willy T and no wine at Pirate’s Bite (just a few examples) throughout the day on Friday only. Again, that restriction will be lifted at 6 p.m. that night.

I’ve totally been on a Heineken 0.0 kick lately. It’s their nonalcoholic beer, and it’s pretty darn good! They’re sold at High Tide, Parrot Club, Beach Bar and Banana Deck to name a few spots on island. Give it a try. You just may like it!

Super random tidbit here…

I was on vacation here about 15 years ago and was sitting sat the bar at Cafe Roma when a woman next to me ordered a Virgin Bushwacker.

The bartender replied,” So you want a glass of ice.”

I cracked up! And clearly never forgot that!

Feel free to grab a virgin daiquiri on Friday, but I’d forgo to the virgin Painkiller. 🙂

Have a great day everyone!
