On Saturday, Jan 25 Pete Johnston, proprietor of Pete’s Pub, held his “20th Annual 50th Birthday Party”. Pete’s Pub is tucked away in Little Harbour, and is one of Abaco’s best kept secrets.
The festivities began at noon on Saturday, January 25th. Music could be heard as soon as you entered the harbour and the aroma of something scrumptious was thick in the air. People traveled from all over the island to attend the party. Tourists and locals alike trekked south to dance, eat, drink and be merry all in celebration of Pete.
Children were frolicking in the water and skirting through the crowd. Adults were drinking, dancing and socializing. Even a few furry four-legged friends found their way to the pub because the pull of the festivities was irresistible.
In true Pete’s fashion, there was a delicious pig roast and a number of savoury burger and fish dishes. From blackened grouper to spicy triggerfish, not a tummy was left unsatisfied.
DJ Craigy Boo brought the music and he did not miss a beat. He kept the crowd moving with hits from today as well as some golden oldies and classics. Attendees were in high spirits and the party continued on into the late evening.
This was the second big party of the year for Pete’s Pub after New Year’s and it was, without a doubt, a success. One attendee claimed that, if you were somewhere else on Saturday you were probably having less fun.
