Fish Fridays, St. John
Concierge.com's insider take:
What began in 2005 as a once-a-month attempt to lure a few tourists to the island's largest fishing town (about a half-hour drive up the craggy coast from St. George's) has expanded into a weekly street party. Every Friday at 7 pm, several roads are blocked off, and local chefs rustle up everything from steamed red snapper and shrimp kebabs to marlin pizza. The winning combination of seafood, cold Carib beer, hot music, and great people-scoping guarantees a big turnout that doesn't break up until midnight, when the food runs out.
