Following your link above to the time zone listings at ClariNET, it appears that Mr. Buffett would actually not be very likely to enjoy spending time in St. John's at GMT -0230/0330 as that St. John's is actually in Newfoundland, Canada :)

    Doh! Excellent catch. I just assumed it was St Johns of the Virgin Islands.

    Well, the principle still stands, even if it's not an island paradise.

    However, that puts you plenty close to Halifax, NS, Canada
    which may be {is} one of the best places on earth to drink beer ;-}

      I had occasion to test this premise recently, and I have to say I fully concur. Halifax was wonderful -- in addition to the great regional/local beer (which can be found on nearly every corner downtown), the people were absolutely wonderful. There were great maritime/celtic bands, good crowds, etc. I hung out with some of the local artists and we managed to go rockhounding up on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy, which made the whole trip for me. I came back with some nice samples of amythest and agate. On the way back from that expedition we actually stopped at the house of a friend of one of these local artists, someone that was 'into movies', as he put it. This guy had his own boutique vinyard and we sat around his fireplace drinking his homemade muscat wine and talking about politics and philosophy. Great night. As it turns out, this guy was Paul Donovan, one of the writers/producers for the sci-fi series 'Lexx' (of which I was a shameless fan). Small world.

    Actually, Mr. Buffett would have had a great big time on "The Rock". St. John's has George Street which boasts the most bars per capita in the world. As he would be a CFA (Come From Away), they'd have 'Screeched Him In' to make him an honorary Newfie, which includes drinking some very potent rum imported from Jamaica. That sort makes up for having to kiss the cod.

    Anne from Newfoundland (pronounced like 'understand')

      Sounds like a pretty great place as far as I'm concerned. Not too sure about Jimmy Buffett though - he's really more the Caribbean type I think.
