A good achievement by a Bahamian businessman
Published: Sep 26, 2013
With so much negative news being exposed to the Bahamian public, I thought it only fitting to tell The Bahamas of an experience that my family and I had this past Friday.
While swimming on Goodman’s Bay last week, I ran into a friend, a young Bahamian man named Marco Armbrister. Marco told me that he had recently opened a restaurant/lounge at Sandyport and named it Cache’s Lounge & Cafe; celebrating his daughter, Cache Armbrister, one of our country’s elite athletes, who recently represented us at the World Championships of Track & Field held last month in Russia.
As an act of encouragement, I promised to visit that establishment, not knowing exactly what to expect in terms of a dining experience. I often complain of the lack of good Bahamian restaurants on this island.
Lo and behold, we arrived at Cache’s around 7:30 p.m. Friday and experienced a evening so special that I thought to write to the press to encourage other Bahamians to visit that cafe/lounge and experience a truly lovely Bahamian dining treat. The place was tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean and maintained. The food was fabulous from appetizer to entree. We were left asking for more.
To cap the evening off, we were treated to a trip down memory lane with recorded old-school hits followed by an unexpected appearance by Ronnie Armbrister (the legendary Ronnie Armbrister who is Marco’s dad). Ronnie was simply fantastic with his wide selection of musical hits. He was accompanied by a very capable pianist.
All said, the evening was great because a young Bahamian man took a giant step with limited resources to do something great for his family and himself. l would encourage Bahamians to support this Cache’s Lounge & Cafe. Taxi drivers and hotels should encourage their guest to patronize Marco and his family.
Congratulations Marco Armbrister! You have set a great example for young Bahamian boys and men to follow.
