Bajan Brek-Fus a treat
It was Crop Over last lap. What to do and where to go with so many choices.
One was Brek-Fus: The Bajan Experience, which came off last Sunday morning at Fisherpond Great House. The first-time event was a breakfast party with a difference.
Patrons had the option of bringing their own coolers and drinks while being provided with the best of Bajan breakfast and brunch buffet dishes. The scenic location was soggy from heavy showers earlier in the morning, but the atmosphere remained full of vibes at the sold-out event.
Some of the goodies served on the breakfast menu included omelettes, plantain wrapped in bacon, buljol and crackers, pumpkin fritters, bakes, French toast and oatmeal. The latecomers had the option of pickled breadfruit and souse, macaroni pie, glazed pork, grilled fish, ham cutters, fishcakes and roasted breadfruit with toppings.
Throughout the morning, the excitement which the day before Kadooment brings was kept alive by top local and regional DJs including Jus Jay, Scott & Mali and Nuphoric from Trinidad and Tobago.
There were also live performances from Leadpipe & Saddis who found it a bit difficult to move the crowd although they performed a full set including past hits Condense, Ah Feeling, and Ben Up and this year’s Make A Fete which earned them a place in this year’s Sweet Soca finals. The duo was followed by Marvay with Survive The Weekend and Know The Face.
But it was Bashment Soca king Stiffy who brought the crowd to life from his first note of Bus Crawl. The entertaining performing literally had the crowd begging for more as they called for an encore. The hyped up partygoers were now in full party mode when international deejays Shep Beats and Konata took over and kept the party going well past the scheduled noon finish.
