Hi! I hope you have been enjoying your summer as much as we have at the resort. It is wonderful to have so many restrictions lifted, especially the mask rules. Masks are optional for our resort guests and club members. Our staff, who are not fully vaccinated, are still required to wear a mask. It is definitely appreciated so many.
Spending Father’s Day Weekend at the resort with all of the families honoring and celebrating their dads was awesome, and we are looking so forward to a fantastic July 4th celebration! At this very moment, Chef Grant is busy preparing for the Lago Mar Beach Buffet Extravaganza, which takes place in Acquario on Sunday evening.
Since the Fourth Generation have been so involved in the business by working at the different outlets in the past few weeks, we decided to involve them in the tasting of the menu for the upcoming holiday. I absolutely loved the Blackened Mahi-Mahi with Papaya Mango Salsa. My boys gave a big thumbs up to the Slow-Cooked Mesquite-Seasoned Pork Barbecue Ribs. Everyone thought that the Baked Mac-n-Cheese and Collard Greens with apple chicken sausage, sweet peppers, and onions were “the best ever”. We also concurred that “Tasting Meetings” are the best part of our jobs! Although we didn’t officially taste Chef Grant’s hamburgers and hotdogs, we know it wouldn’t be a Fourth of July without the traditional burger, hot dog, and sausage station.
As I mentioned earlier, the Fourth Generation has been quite active in the work force at the resort since summer started and, this holiday, they will be working overtime. Demi will be cocktailing with Nicole, Dani will be assisting at the Ocean Grill, and the boys will be manning the towel hut. Lago Mar truly puts the “family” in family business.
Lastly, if you’re planning to join us in Acquario during the holiday weekend, make sure to have a cocktail in the lounge before dinner so that you can see the finishing touches on our enhancement in the Wine Cellar Lounge. I think you’ll love the sheers, as they really pull the room together! I am also expecting my private label candles and diffusers to arrive before the holiday so please visit the Resort Shop for these wonderful items!
