Rebuilding our Trinidad carnival 2015 fete list! Part 1

UPDATED LIST HERE

So the Lehwego team has decided to “tun down” a notch for carnival 2015. Well that doesn’t mean we are going to sit at home doing nothing or lower out fetting standards.
We here at team lehwego have only a few criteria for a good fete.

  • It must be comfortable
  • It must have vibes (AKA wine ah gih weh by pretty woman… Freely!)
  • It MUST be drink inclusive.

If it costs 200usd and doesn’t have these ingredients, it flop. I could be standing next to the Queen of England in the fete… It still flop if it don’t fulfill the above criteria.
If it cost 50 dollars and it gives us what we need…. It win!
Simple!
Remember we are partying “hobo level” so this year price will also be a big factor

So first step.  Review our current list:

Mental
The morning after
Beachhouse
Phuket
Party bus
Blue range
Ambush
Double Up
Roast cruise
Dirty dozen jouvert
Wine down cruise

The fetes were all good last year but I eliminated fetes either based on cost or value for money or the presence of other fetes I want to attend at the same time.

From this list if we add the financial factor in we are left with:

Mental
Phuket
Blue range
Ambush
Roast
Wine down cruise

New fetes being considered are:

C’est la vie (still expensive)
Suits.
Soca brainwash
Silent morning
Sunny side up/shades

Now this is where you all come in. I need suggestions from you all!  I have been doing the same fetes for so long I don’t even know my options!
Where is there to fete Thursday apart from beach house and C’est la vie?
What other good breakfast fetes should we consider.

What fetes should we remove and add?

This is but the first step and as time goes on we will add and subtract.

    How can you eliminate AMBush? LOL, that’s a must!! I always party like a hobo in comparison to others so I wish I could help.

    Wed/Thurs – Morning After
    Thurs – Beach House or C’est La Vie or just go to the beach
    Friday – Blue Range
    Saturday – AMBush
    Sunday – Vale Vides

    All drink inclusive and some food inclusive except blue range

    I went to C’est la vie. I wouldn’t recommend it. Pay the extra and stick with beach house. What about Soca Monarch. To me its A LOT cheaper and its like partying with 3,000 people. the two times I went i had a good time. I am definitely going back to that next year.

    Me and my girls have most of the fetes you did 2014. we’re looking to add silent morning breakfast fete and cruise fri am like you listed. there used to be a fete called Dawn, but i think it was renamed to shades maybe? and i thought we were crazy to start fete planning so early! No party bus next year?

    It’s never too early to plan. We are thinking of moving on from the party bus as we may be drastically changing our Friday night lineup. Nothing cast in stone yet though.

    As a fellow yardie, I must fully endorse your three criteria of good fete. Lol

    WE Fete Wednesday (inclusive section) is great value for money.
    Thursday. Beach house (reluctantly because there is not a better option)
    Friday. Phuket
    Saturday. Soca Brainwash
    Sunday. D’Vale (the best party in the Caribbean, bar none, full stop!)
    Monday J’ouvert (Cocoa Devil’s) and Monday Mas
    Tuesday. Fly out.
    Also, thinking about doing Ambush Saturday morning.

    Here is my plan…coming in Wednesday the 11th and leaving Thursday the 19th

    Wed – arrive
    Thurs – chill out or
    Fri – Bright Colors Boat Ride and Phucket
    Sat – AMBUSH or Scorch
    Sun – Vale or Sunny Side Up Breakfast Fete
    Mon – Jouvert (Yellow Devils)
    Tues – Carnival
    Wed – All Inclusive with Giselle D Wassi One

    Good luck getting tickets for AMBUSH and Vale…those are already gone straight up and those with extra tickets seem to have em sold before they offer them…LOL
