Hello and welcome to this 51st episode of One Happy Podcast where I and my co-host Maggie take a look at Aruba early-bird dinner specials. Very recently we booked another trip to the island and because we love to plan, have decided to attempt to shift our days forward. What I mean by that is we want to get up about 2 hours earlier than normal, therefore doing everything else 2 hours earlier. If all goes as planned our beach time, lunch time and dinner time will be something other than what we are used to doing.
On this episode of the podcast, we attempt to look at 10 different restaurants and their early-bird menus. For those of you not familiar with early-bird specials, here is a breakdown. Oftentimes restaurants will offer a portion of their menu as nightly specials for those who come in for dinner before a certain time. For example, a restaurant may want to increase traffic between the hours of 5pm and 7 pm, this is where an early-bird really comes in handy. The restaurant will put together a limited menu of appetizer, entree, and dessert and sell them as a package deal, at a discount. This practice was called early-bird due to the same the early bird gets the worm… or in this case, the early bird gets the discount pricing.
Each of us looks at 5 different Aruba restaurants that feature early birds and we describe and eventually attempt to choose which ones catch our attention. This is an awesome 50-minute episode that will most likely open your eyes to a segment of dining in Aruba that you may have overlooked in the past.
