toast it: the daiquiri shack

Every December I have the good fortune of joining my family on a trip to the Bahamas. My mum has a fantastic timeshare on Cable Beach in Nassau, and we spend the week lounging in the sun, playing cards and catching up. Our neighborhood down there is currently in the midst of a huge transition while the Baha Mar Resort is being built. They have closed a couple of our favorite restaurants on the beach, with the promise that they'll replace them with dozens of restaurants, pools, casinos, and luxury accommodations. The Daiquiri Shack was one such place, and we happened to be there on its last day before being torn down. The Shack was relocated to a nicer building up the street a bit, but the ramshackle tool shed that was the home of the best daiquiris on Cable Beach will be missed.
