Yellow Bird / Becky's, The Bahamas
Our resort publicized a Dinner-Show activity, promising 'The finest Bahamian cuisine' and a fabulous show afterward. The price was $45 per person including transportation. We were picked up by a dirty taxi and taken to a restaurant with an atmosphere reminiscent of Denny's called Becky's. The food wasn't nearly as good as Denny's. After dinner, our taxi wisked us off to The Yellowbird, a nightclub that we suspected was a strip-joint on other nights. We waited almost an hour before the show began, by which time we were muttering, 'Let's just get this night over with. . .' The acts included a couple of sixteen-year-old girls in scimpy outfits (which supported our strip-joint theory), a bad bongo drummer, a scary looking fire-eating girl, a very disturbing man who threw himself onto broken glass and also ate some, showing his bleeding mouth afterward, and a steel drummer, The only decent act was the steel drummer, but he played a little too long and we were squirming to get the h*ll out of there.
Fun Alternatives: We found ourselves saying that we would have had much more fun hanging out at our resort drinking fruity drinks by the pool. Or even just watching TV. Stay away from Becky's and The Yellowbird.
