    Cerise’s video on opening Merengue bar on this Friday; all bars closed down are suppose to open.
    Hope I see big there...,lol
    Even if the guy in the video seemed credible (he didn’t), there’s a problem with the “math”.
    In the video, Cerise said “It’s Monday” (today). The “promotion guy” said “open in seis Dias” while flashing six fingers.
    Monday plus six days = Sunday, not Friday.

    There was talk of action by the central government in Santo Domingo long ago with respect to Sosua and Boca Chica.
    Changes took a long time to happen, as is usual in this country. Perhaps enough money finally made it happen, but I suspect there were other reasons as well.

    The other reasons were money in pockets.

    I disagree. Money was part of it, but not all.

    How much do you think these bars make to be able to make a substantial bribe worthy of Santo Domingo standards ..HIA Syndrome...

    Is there proof there was a court case and all the closed businesses won the right to open? As one poster above said, this thread has moved from the domain of whore mongers to rumor mongers. As for rumors, time will tell if they are just rumors.
    I doubt it. Too much publicity nation wide at this point.

    I walked by (the Bar formally known as) Rumbas this morning. I notice two things different.

    1. The Cleaning Lady was very carefully moving every chair and table to mop the floor.

    2. There were 2 big signs laying on the concrete fence ,at the front, at the sidewalk. Each was made on yellow plastic (6mil ?) with very big red letters..... NOW OPEN

    OMG this is bad news for the hordes of families that have made plans to vacation in the new family friendly Sosua. The town was all set to become a Mormon retreat.

    Its also really BAD News for the Know it all's here who claimed they had inside information,.and all this knowledge about how things really work , based on what Santo Domingo says ..
    If These Bars re open... some of y all really really need to step back and re think what you think you know
    , cuz you certainly do not have a clue how things really work in the DR ...
