I had so much fun with Randell, the bartender at Kimonos, when visiting Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos. I was there for the Beaches Social Media on the Sand conference, and a Beaches Mom the first year they started the program. Randell is the epitome of the staff at Beaches; laid back, so sweet, and ready to serve! He will make you any drink you ask for. As they say at Beaches, the only no you'll hear is "No problem!"
I was meeting friends for dinner at Kimonos and arrived at 6 to realize our reservation was at 6:30. A half an hour to kill, nowhere to go, an empty barstool calling my name! I asked the Randell what I should try, and he suggested a Sake Cruise. It was love at first sip! Having a Sake Cruise without Randell just isn't the same, so here's a video you can enjoy to see how it's really done! Nice and easy!
