Macy Gray In Concert December 27 !


ne of the highlights
of this year's
Christmas Village
on the docks in Gustavia is
a free concert by American
R&B singer Macy Gray on
Monday, December 27 at
8pm. This acclaimed soul
singer and songwriter is
also a record producer and
actress who has appeared
in numerous films includ-
ing Training Day, Spider-
Man, Scary Movie 3,
Lackawanna Blues, and
Idlewild. Her singing style
and voice quality has been
likened to that of Billie
Holiday or Aretha
Franklin.
A Grammy winner
for Best Female Pop Vocal
Performance, Gray has
released five studio


albums, one compilation
album, and one live
album. Of her most recent
album, < Sellout, released in June,
2010, a BBC reviewer not-
ed: "The Sellout boasts a


perfect, accessible sound
bed for the distinctive
vocals of a distinctive
artist,".
Having garnered a total of
five Grammy nominations,
Gray has also been hon-


ored with two MTV Music
Awards. She is best known
for her international hit
single >, taken from
her multi-platinum debut
album from 1999, < How Life Is>>. She has sold
more than 15,000,000
albums worldwide.

For this hour-long free
concert in Saint Barth,
Macy Gray will perform
with nine musicians, as
part of the festive celebra-
tions on the main dock.
The Christmas Village also
comprises the sale of work
by various artisans and
jewelers as well as wine
tasting and special food
products for the holiday
season.

New Look For The Airport


Gray paint, wooden slats, accent
walls and planters made of stone,
and bright orange paint (to make the
access to the upper level more visi-
ble) combine to give the Gustav III
airport a decidedly more modern
look.
This new look echoes the brief given
to Design Affaires, the architectural
firm that has done the redesign: to
bring the aging airport terminal up to
a level of sophistication in keeping
with the image of the island. As well
as make it more convivial, with a
better flow for passengers from
space to space.
The first phase of the work began in
early September and consisted of
redesigning the public spaces on the
ground floor of the terminal. The
runway side, the arrivals and depar-
ture halls, check-in area, and outer
hallway were all updated with a con-
temporary design, mixing slats of
wood with gray-taupe paint, plus the


orange walls to indicate access to the
upper story. The floor tiles are Ker-
lite, or laminated ceramic, which are
very popular in contemporary archi-
tecture, and used for the first time in
Saint Barth for this project.
It was quite a challenge for the arti-
sans, who had but three months to
complete the work: "Its success must
be credited to the high quality of
coordination and communication


between the management of the air-
port, the technical services depart-
ment of the Collectivity, the archi-
tects, and the companies involved,"
explains Fabrice Danet, director of
the airport, who is pleased with the
results of the ground floor renova-
tion, which is just about completed
(what remains to be done includes
finishing details, new furniture, the
installation of plasma screens in the
departure hall, and the placement of
photo blow-ups on the runway side
and check-in area). The second and
final phase of this redesign project
for the terminal will begin at the end
of the winter tourist season, and
comprise the renovation of the
upstairs shopping area, which will
have a new lounge with WiFi. "The
idea is to create a space where pas-
sengers will want to go before their
planes take off, as well as add new
energy to the upper level," adds
Danet.

40 Boats For The 2011 Saint Barth Bucket


A record number for the
2011 edition of the Saint
Barth Bucket, which takes
place the same year as the
25th anniversary of the
original Bucket regatta,
which was held in August
1986, in the waters of Nan-
tucket, Massachusetts. Visit-
ing Saint Barth last week to
prepare for the event, Hank
Halsted, managing director,
Timothy Laughridge, direc-
tor, and Peter Craig, race
director, confirmed the list
of 40 fabulous sailboats,
most of which are over 100
feet in length, on the start-
ing line for the 16th annual
Saint Barth Bucket, which
takes place March 24-27,
2011.
Bucket organizers do not
plan on breaking this
record: "40 is the limit for
maintaining the spirit of the


(left to right) Ernest Brin, director Port of Gustavia, Hank
Halsted, Bucket managing director, Timothy Laughridge,
Bucket director, and Peter Craig, Bucket race director, in
St Barth to discuss plans for the 16th annual St Barth
Bucket Regatta, March 24-27, 2011.


Bucket: fun and safety,"
states Halsted. It's big, con-
firms Craig, who organizes
and runs the various regat-
tas for these super-yachts:
"The fleet for the Saint
Barth Bucket is, by far, the


largest in the world."
According to Craig, most of
the races of this kind have
less than 20 boats on aver-
age. The organizers attribute
the success of the Bucket to
the island of Saint Barth6le-
my: "It is a very special
place with which the own-
ers of the boats have a per-
sonal affinity," echoed all
three in unison.
As a result, 40 boats with an
average crew of 20 people
plus owners and their
friends, means that more
than 1000 people will be on
the island to celebrate the
Saint Barth Bucket in
March.

The Maltese Falcon
Returns
Among the prestigious
boats for the 2011 Bucket is
the return of the Maltese


Falcon, participating for the
third time. The two winners
from 2010 will also be here:
Hanuman, which won the
Newport Bucket in Septem-
ber, and Ranger, winner of
the 2010 Saint Barth Buck-
et. In addition are six brand
new yachts--Christopher,
Twizzle, Marie, Lady B,
Kokomo, and Melek-cer-
tain of which are still under
completion. Bucket veter-
ans include Antara, Ranger,
Rebecca, Hyperion, Salper-
ton, White Wings, and
Sojana. Former winners,
who have their name
inscribed on the Bucket tro-
phy, racing again in 2011
comprise Unfurled (2002),
Freedom of Flight (2005),
Windrose (2008), Meteor
(2009), and Ranger (2010).

In celebration of the 25th
anniversary of the original
Bucket, the organizers are
planning a special event that
would "involve the entire
population, not just the
spectators," hinted Halsted,
who would not reveal any
details as of yet.

Last but not least, plans are
underway for a book cele-
brating the 25 years of the
Bucket. It should be com-
pleted by the end of next
year and include the two
2011 regattas: the Saint
Barth Bucket in March and
the Newport Bucket,
August 26-28,2011.


In France, if the legal level of alcohol is less than 0.25mg
per liter of air exhaled, it is better to never exceed that lim-
it. Controlled with a level higher than 0.55mg, one foreign
visitor was obliged to immediately pay a fine of 1500
euros rather than appear before a judge. Drink or drive...
your choice!

ROBB'S ST BARTH SONG


Like many artists, he goes
by a single name, that of
Robb. He is French, with
roots in The Philippines,
Vietnam, and Thailand,
and his principal m6tier is
that of a massage therapist
who specializes in Thai
massage (clients may
remember him from the
spa at the Isle de France).

Living in St Barth since
2006, Robb has been
involved in music on a
serious level for the past
10 years, playing guitar
with various groups and
as a solo singer and song-
writer, penning both
music and lyrics. "I play
primarily for my own
pleasure," he says, "but in
St Barth everybody said


they liked my songs and
encouraged me to produce
a CD." The result, at least
for now, is a single enti-


tled "St Barth Song,"
which Robb self-produced
for his friends, and pre-
sented live at La Plage in


St Jean on Tuesday
evening, December 21,
2010, accompanied by the
local band, The Roots
Brothers. "The style of the
song, which is played reg-
ularly on Radio St Barth,
is Caribbean reggae,"
notes Robb, who adds that
he has no plans for an
album, at least not at this
time.

The CD "St Barth Song"
can be purchased at Trop-
ic Video, Pati St Barth,
Black Swan, Filles des
Isles, American Gourmet,
Eden Rock, Isle de
France, and Tom Shop,
and would make a nice lit-
tle stocking stuffer for
those who like Caribbean
music.


BLUE ZONE PARKING IN GUSTAVIA


Blue Zone parking, in
effect in Gustavia since last
year, was established as a
means to help control traf-
fic and parking in the cen-
ter of town.
In the < zones, driv-
ers are authorized to park
for free for an hour and a
half when using a blue
parking disk available
from all rental car agen-
cies, as well as at the Ter-
ritorial Police station, the
Hotel de la Collectivit6,
and the Tourist Office. The
disk must be put in clear
view on the dashboard,
against the windshield of
the car, indicating the
starting time for the 90
minutes of legal parking.
All cars must be moved
after 90 minutes.
The "blue zones" are
defined by special signage


and centralized in Gus-
tavia as follows:
- Rue du Bord du Mer:
along the waterfront;
- Rue de la Republique:
the road from the pharma-
cy to Le Select;
- Rue de la France: from
Le Select to the quay;
- Rue Place d'Armes: the
left side of the street from
the waterfront to Beranger;
- Rue Samuel Fahlberg:
the street from Isola past
the post office and up to
the hospital, where cars
park along the sidewalk
(no trucks allowed except
for deliveries).
Blue zone parking will be
in effect during the day,
from 8am to 6pm, from
Monday through Saturday.
After 6pm, as well as Sun-
days and holidays, unlim-
ited parking is free.

"Uncovered," a word that can be
both suggestive and provocative,
takes on an even more highly
charged meaning in St. Barth, where
beaches and streets overflow with
people in various states of undress.
The artists in this exhibition, all
members of the faculty and Artists'
Advisory Board of the New York
Academy of Art, and among the
most talked about mid-career
painters working today, were
asked to present their interpreta-
tion of the word.

Eileen Guggenheim, Ph.D., chair,
Board of Trustees, explains the
intent of this exhibition, which runs
December 22-January 31 at the
Eden Rock Gallery: "Some have
chosen to emphasize the connection
between the concept and the body.
Kim McCarty, for example, states,


EDEN ROCK GALLERY PRESENTS:

Y E -'Y
"Uncovered exposes the fragile veil
that hovers and lingers over the
human form." To others, however, the
word may evoke broader and more
philosophical meanings. Painter Julie
Heffernan explains, "Uncovering is
what artists do-we paint in order to
figure out what we think."
-r I


The range of responses you see here--
from a Spartan self-portrait by Kurt
Kauper ("It's a naked self-portrait, so


it is literally about being uncovered,")
to a still-life by Catherine Howe, ("a
metaphor for transcendence and
desire...which is uncovered in the
process of painting,") to a highly
charged genre scene by Natalie Frank,
("the painting depicts a couple not in
sync. This disparity is laid bare,
uncovered")-is exhilarating. All
possess a high degree of craftsman-
ship and a complex narrative frame-
work, attributes that reflect the val-
ues and mission of the Academy.
Beyond that, as the viewer might
expect, the artistic imagination clear-
ly takes over. The New York Acade-
my of Art offers traditional artistic
training (with a focus on the human
form) to emerging artists and chal-
lenges them to use these skills to
create vital contemporary art. We wish
to thank the Eden Rock Gallery for
making this exhibition possible".

Queen of the night, Carole Gruson
has always known how to turn a
"fete" into a fabulous event. So it
stands to reason that Le Ti Saint
Barth, her restaurant/cabaret in
Pointe Milou, will celebrate its 15th
anniversary with a fabulous festival
that kicks off on December 23. Simi-
lar to the Challe Family Festival that
Gruson organized last summer, this
f&te starts at the Ti Saint Barth and
continues at the Yacht Club every
evening from December 23-January
8 inclusive. Each evening features
two different events-one at the Ti,
the other at the Yacht Club-with
music by the top name DJs: Dee
Nice, artistic director of the trend
new Parisian club "1979," who will
animate the WadKlub soir6e on
December 25 at the Yacht Club and
December 26 at the Ti. Hanna Hais,
the only French House-Music singer,
brings her hit single, Rosa Nova, one
of the top tunes in Ibiza. With an


Le Ti Saint Bart

Celebrates 15'
exclusive contract with the English
record label, Defected, the most
important House label in the world,
Hanna Hais has traveled to the
world's best clubs both singing and
mixing at the same time. She will be
the special guest on Christmas Eve at
the Yacht Club and on Christmas
Day at the Ti; DJ Niki Belucci, a
Hungarian topless DJ, mixes regular-
ly for FG DJ Radio and brings her
talent to the Ti on January 3 and the
Yacht Club on January 1; Sacha
Muki, resident DJ at the Palais Club
in Cannes for the "Palais Party" on
January 1 at the Ti and January 2 and
3 at the Yacht Club; DJ Miller, resi-
dent DJ at Rai, the hippest club in
Moscow, enlivens a "Russian New
Year's Eve" at the Ti on January 6, as
well as closing night parties for the
festival turning the Yacht Club into
"Rai Moscow" on January 7 and 8.
In addition to these top DJs, the festi-
val includes "Day & Night" parties
from December 26-31, comprises the
passage into the New Year. This con-
cept, created by American brothers,
Derek & Daniel Koch (who will be
in St Barth for the occasion) puts a
variety of different DJs in the spot-
light. Other special events for New
Year's Eve? At the Ti, Carole promis-
es "the most beautiful evening of the
past 15 years," while DJs of the Day
& Night Concept animate the party at
the Yacht Club.


h

Years
In this galaxy of stars, local DJs are
also part of the scene: James Ken-
taro, Matt Deavis, and Frank N, who
will play on January 4, 5 and 6,
respectively at the Yacht Club.
Last but not least, repeating a suc-
cessful partnership, Carole Gruson
brings her fete to the Guanahani
Hotel & Spa in Grand Cul de Sac on
Sunday, January 2, with a special
"beach brunch," featuring the lovely
Niki Belucci at the turntables.

THE 'REGULARS'
AT TI SAINT BARTH
The success of Ti Saint Barth, fre-
quented as often by residents as by
tourists, is due to Carole Gruson,
who created, developed, and pro-
moted this special place. She
would also like to thank those who
have been by her side in creating
its success: Pascal Giglio, who has
ruled the kitchen since the first
day the restaurant opened; and DJ
Franck N, who has been at the Ti's
turntables for the past 15 years.

One of the few
items reflecting
the local heritage
of Saint Barth is
the woven straw
work made by
the women in
Corossol. This
tradition of dry-
ing and braiding
palm fronds,
then sewing the
braided tresses
into hats, baskets, and other
objects, has been passed
down from generation to
generation and is still prac-
ticed in a limited manner
today.
If you visit the charming
village of Corossol, you'll
see some of this straw
work on display outside of
several homes, but as of
this year, there is also a
lovely collection for sale at
Chez Alex. This small
neighborhood grocery store
has been updated and run
by Nathalie Philip since
last July and has become a
popular spot for a cup of
coffee or a snack during
the day, as well as a con-
venient place to purchase a
souvenir actually made in
Saint Barth.
"I work with all of the vari-
ous women who make
straw objects in Corossol,"
says Philip. On the shelves
at Chez Alex she has a
range of straw hats, large
and small baskets, decora-
tive birds and fish, place-
mats, dolls, fans, coasters,
bottle covers, purses, and


fans-all handmade by the
ladies in the neighborhood.
One of the most unusual
items is a heart-shaped
straw box that could be
used for jewelry.
There are many different
kinds of braided straw that
these women use for the
fabrication of various
objects. Philip has short
pieces of each tress on dis-
play so that you can see the
different styles, from dou-
ble knots to fringe for the
edge of hats, as well as
tress for fans, baskets,
flowers, and other decora-
tion. With hats selling for
25 euros and baskets rang-
ing from 8 euros to 20
euros depending on their
size, the straw work at
Chez Alex is the prefect
way to take home a piece
of island culture at a very
small price.

( hi, : V. is open
Tuesday-Saturday
from 6:30am-12:30pm and
3:30-7:30pm, and
Sunday from 7am-12pm.

27th annual St Barts Music Festival

The classical music fes-
tival of Saint Barth is a
rare jewel we shouldn't *
take for granted. Rare
because not all festivals
exist for so many years:
many just run out of ,
steam. And rare,
because of the great
ensemble of musi-
cians-mostly Ameri-
can- who perform so
generously thanks to the
perseverance and pas- ,
sion of the festival's Oe. 1
creator, Frances De l
Broff. The schedule for
the 2011 edition, the 27nd annual which runs January 7 to
18, is published below.

4St Barth Weekly nGray paint, wooden slats, accent walls and planters made of stone, and bright orange paint (to make the access to the upper level more visible) combine to give the Gustav III airport a decidedly more modern look. This new look echoes the brief given to Design Affaires, the architectural firm that has done the redesign: to bring the aging airport terminal up to a level of sophistication in keeping with the image of the island. As well as make it more convivial, with a better flow for passengers from space to space. The first phase of the work began in early September and consisted of redesigning the public spaces on the ground floor of the terminal. The runway side, the arrivals and departure halls, check-in area, and outer hallway were all updated with a contemporary design, mixing slats of wood with gray-taupe paint, plus the orange walls to indicate access to the upper story. The floor tiles are Kerlite, or laminated ceramic, which are very popular in contemporary architecture, and used for the first time in Saint Barth for this project. It was quite a challenge for the artisans, who had but three months to complete the work: Its success must be credited to the high quality of coordination and communication between the management of the airport, the technical services department of the Collectivity, the architects, and the companies involved, explains Fabrice Danet, director of the airport, who is pleased with the results of the ground floor renovation, which is just about completed (what remains to be done includes finishing details, new furniture, the installation of plasma screens in the departure hall, and the placement of photo blow-ups on the runway side and check-in area). The second and final phase of this redesign project for the terminal will begin at the end of the winter tourist season, and comprise the renovation of the upstairs shopping area, which will have a new lounge with WiFi. The idea is to create a space where passengers will want to go before their planes take off, as well as add new energy to the upper level, adds Danet.New Look For The Airport

6St Barth Weekly n°204A record number for the 2011 edition of the Saint Barth Bucket, which takes place the same year as the 25th anniversary of the original Bucket regatta, which was held in August 1986, in the waters of Nantucket, Massachusetts. Visiting Saint Barth last week to prepare for the event, Hank Halsted, managing director, Timothy Laughridge, director, and Peter Craig, race director, confirmed the list of 40 fabulous sailboats, most of which are over 100 feet in length, on the starting line for the 16th annual Saint Barth Bucket, which takes place March 24-27, 2011. Bucket organizers do not plan on breaking this record: 40 is the limit for maintaining the spirit of the Bucket: fun and safety,Ž states Halsted. Its big, confirms Craig, who organizes and runs the various regattas for these super-yachts: The fleet for the Saint Barth Bucket is, by far, the largest in the world.Ž According to Craig, most of the races of this kind have less than 20 boats on average. The organizers attribute the success of the Bucket to the island of Saint Barthélemy: It is a very special place with which the owners of the boats have a personal affinity,Ž echoed all three in unison. As a result, 40 boats with an average crew of 20 people plus owners and their friends, means that more than 1000 people will be on the island to celebrate the Saint Barth Bucket in March.The Maltese Falcon ReturnsAmong the prestigious boats for the 2011 Bucket is the return of the Maltese Falcon, participating for the third time. The two winners from 2010 will also be here: Hanuman, which won the Newport Bucket in September, and Ranger, winner of the 2010 Saint Barth Bucket. In addition are six brand new yachts„Christopher, Twizzle, Marie, Lady B, Kokomo, and Melek„certain of which are still under completion. Bucket veterans include Antara, Ranger, Rebecca, Hyperion, Salperton, White Wings, and Sojana. Former winners, who have their name inscribed on the Bucket trophy, racing again in 2011 comprise Unfurled (2002), Freedom of Flight (2005), Windrose (2008), Meteor (2009), and Ranger (2010). In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the original Bucket, the organizers are planning a special event that would involve the entire population, not just the spectators,Ž hinted Halsted, who would not reveal any details as of yet. Last but not least, plans are underway for a book celebrating the 25 years of the Bucket. It should be completed by the end of next year and include the two 2011 regattas: the Saint Barth Bucket in March and the Newport Bucket, August 26-28, 2011. Drinking and Driving: An Expensive Combination In France, if the legal level of alcohol is less than 0.25mg per liter of air exhaled, it is better to never exceed that limit. Controlled with a level higher than 0.55mg, one foreign visitor was obliged to immediately pay a fine of 1500 euros rather than appear before a judge.

Lobsters Fresh From The Tank100 g for 6,50euros Like many artists, he goes by a single name, that of Robb. He is French, with roots in The Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand, and his principal mtier is that of a massage therapist who specializes in Thai massage (clients may remember him from the spa at the Isle de France). Living in St Barth since 2006, Robb has been involved in music on a serious level for the past 10 years, playing guitar with various groups and as a solo singer and songwriter, penning both music and lyrics. I play primarily for my own pleasure, he says, but in St Barth everybody said they liked my songs and encouraged me to produce a CD. The result, at least for now, is a single entitled St Barth Song, which Robb self-produced for his friends, and presented live at La Plage in St Jean on Tuesday evening, December 21, 2010, accompanied by the local band, The Roots Brothers. The style of the song, which is played regularly on Radio St Barth, is Caribbean reggae, notes Robb, who adds that he has no plans for an album, at least not at this time. The CD St Barth Song can be purchased at Tropic Video, Pati St Barth, Black Swan, Filles des Isles, American Gourmet, Eden Rock, Isle de France, and Tom Shop, and would make a nice little stocking stuffer for those who like Caribbean music.Blue Zone parking, in effect in Gustavia since last year, was established as a means to help control traffic and parking in the center of town. In the blue zones, drivers are authorized to park for free for an hour and a half when using a blue parking disk available from all rental car agencies, as well as at the Territorial Police station, the Hotel de la Collectivit, and the Tourist Office. The disk must be put in clear view on the dashboard, against the windshield of the car, indicating the starting time for the 90 minutes of legal parking. All cars must be moved after 90 minutes. The blue zones are defined by special signage and centralized in Gustavia as follows: Rue du Bord du Mer: along the waterfront; Rue de la Republique: the road from the pharmacy to Le Select; Rue de la France: from Le Select to the quay; Rue Place dArmes: the left side of the street from the waterfront to Beranger; Rue Samuel Fahlberg: the street from Isola past the post office and up to the hospital, where cars park along the sidewalk (no trucks allowed except for deliveries). Blue zone parking will be in effect during the day, from 8am to 6pm, from Monday through Saturday. After 6pm, as well as Sundays and holidays, unlimited parking is free.ROBB’S ST BARTH SONG BLUEZONEPARKINGINGUSTAVIAHOWITWORKS

The artists in this exhibition, all members of the faculty and Artists Advisory Board of the New York Academy of Art, and among the most talked about mid-career painters working today, were asked to present their interpretation of the word. Eileen Guggenheim, Ph.D., chair, Board of Trustees, explains the intent of this exhibition, which runs December 22-January 31 at the Eden Rock Gallery: Some have chosen to emphasize the connection between the concept and the body. Kim McCarty, for example, states, Uncovered exposes the fragile veil that hovers and lingers over the human form. To others, however, the word may evoke broader and more philosophical meanings. Painter Julie Heffernan explains, Uncovering is what artists dowe paint in order to figure out what we think. The range of responses you see here from a Spartan self-portrait by Kurt Kauper (Its a naked self-portrait, so it is literally about being uncovered,) to a still-life by Catherine Howe, (a metaphor for transcendence and desirewhich is uncovered in the process of painting,) to a highly charged genre scene by Natalie Frank, (the painting depicts a couple not in sync. This disparity is laid bare, uncovered)is exhilarating. All possess a high degree of craftsmanship and a complex narrative framework, attributes that reflect the values and mission of the Academy. Beyond that, as the viewer might expect, the artistic imagination clearly takes over. The New York Academy of Art offers traditional artistic training (with a focus on the human form) to emerging artists and challenges them to use these skills to create vital contemporary art. We wish to thank the Eden Rock Gallery for making this exhibition possible.EDENROCKGALLERYPRESENTS:“UNCOVERED” BYTHENEWYORKACADEMYOFART

20St Barth Weekly n°204 One of the few items reflecting the local heritage of Saint Barth is the woven straw work made by the women in Corossol. This tradition of drying and braiding palm fronds, then sewing the braided tresses into hats, baskets, and other objects, has been passed down from generation to generation and is still practiced in a limited manner today. If you visit the charming village of Corossol, youll see some of this straw work on display outside of several homes, but as of this year, there is also a lovely collection for sale at Chez Alex. This small neighborhood grocery store has been updated and run by Nathalie Philip since last July and has become a popular spot for a cup of coffee or a snack during the day, as well as a convenient place to purchase a souvenir actually made in Saint Barth. I work with all of the various women who make straw objects in Corossol,Ž says Philip. On the shelves at Chez Alex she has a range of straw hats, large and small baskets, decorative birds and fish, placemats, dolls, fans, coasters, bottle covers, purses, and fans„all handmade by the ladies in the neighborhood. One of the most unusual items is a heart-shaped straw box that could be used for jewelry. There are many different kinds of braided straw that these women use for the fabrication of various objects. Philip has short pieces of each tress on display so that you can see the different styles, from double knots to fringe for the edge of hats, as well as tress for fans, baskets, flowers, and other decoration. With hats selling for 25 euros and baskets ranging from 8 euros to 20 euros depending on their size, the straw work at Chez Alex is the prefect way to take home a piece of island culture at a very small price. Chez Alex is open Tuesday-Saturday from 6:30am-12:30pm and 3:30-7:30pm, and Sunday from 7am-12pm.
