First Fete – Baje Kampai

 

 

Safe to say my Crop Over has officially started. This Saturday past, I went to Baje Kampai, held in collaboration with Boomtribe. Baje’s fetes are known for pulling a crowd and Boomtribe’s parties are known for having maximum vibes, so being in attendance was a no-brainer.

The crowd was no surprise. Eye-candy galore…

Was a bit of a little of a let down as far the vibes were concerned. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a good time – I just didn’t have the great time I was expecting, especially from a Boomtribe fete. Baje’s regular crowd has attracted a reputation for being “stush” on occasion and it did seem as if patrons were a bit unwilling to let loose at times.

Intermittently, there was some freeing up, particularly when none other than the self-proclaimed Mr. Crop Over himself, Li’l Rick, appeared on stage and performed a number of his many songs already out for the season, including the wildly popular I Like Muhself   (there’s no way anyone could hear this song and NOT want to let loose and party).

All in all, it was a decent warm-up for the month to come. I’m ready for more!

You can see pics from Kampai here . I think I’m in there, somewhere…

    The location (the Waterside Restaurant in the Gap) was excellent. I didn’t even know the place existed until I went there for Kampai. Nice venue and grounds, spacious but not sprawling. Great ambiance.

    Bar service was reasonably efficient given the numbers. My only complaint would be that there was Remy and not Hennessey (ugh, lol) and drinks had to be bought by the cup.
