        Depending on what you are looking for I would probably go to Luciano's for dinner first which is on bay street and then next door is a bar called Green Parrot ( luciano's and green parrot are located on bay street just before the bridge going over to Paradise Island)  used to be good but I am not so sure now, other option is to skip Green Parrot and go over to Atlantis there is a Bar on the Casino floor called High rollers which only has a few tables but is always a good starting point from there you can head to Aura the night club in Atlantis which is always good fun!  Another great restaurant outside of Atlantis is Cafe Matisse which is just off baystreet (downtown) i prefer this restaurant over Luciano's but it is also a bit more pricey.  There is a nightclub called Bamboo ( my favourite nightclub on the island) which is good fun it is also located downtown near where the big cruise ships come in.  One of the best buffet restaruant's i have ever been to is located in Nassau at the Cove Hotel (the newest hotel at Atlantis) it has an amazing variety of food for breakfast and dinner lunch is ok but no where near as good as the breakfast and dinner. If you need any more info please dont hesitate to ask.

        Funny thing is I'm am a CPA - the most boring, uncreative (well except for those Andersen folks working on Enron) profession there is.  I guess that's why I go overboard in my personal projects - I need an outlet to express myself.

         

        Kiwibride-I may need some recommendations for Nassau items - I'm looking to have a low key (ie not Senor Frogs) bachelorette party 2 nights before the wedding. Any ideas?

            OMG! Your invites are beautiful! I can't believe you did it yourself! That's crazy!! Thanks for the detailed how-to. Though, I think it's too ambitious for me..maybe I can convince my bridal party??

                      These are amazing! I've been debating on whether to do both STD (boarding pass) and invites (passports)- you may have just convinced me.  Just wondering- whats the usual timing for STD vs Official Invitations that everyone has been using? Im concerned about giving people enough notice to book vacation time, etc.
