The adjusted paid and owner occupancy rate is the number of nights filled per nights available, removing nights held for maintenance. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, a 2020 adjusted paid and owner occupancy rate that is similar to 2019 is an indicator of recovery. Recent bookings have improved the short-term occupancy forecast for areas that have reopened, but have not greatly impacted July and August occupancy rates.

Bushwacker Drink

The Bushwacker was invented at the Ship's Store/Sapphire Pub in Sapphire Village, St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands in the spring of 1975 by bartender Angie Conigliaro (cousin to Tony of the Boston Red Sox) and Tom Brokamp the restaurant's manager. It was promptly named after a visiting guest's dog, Bushwack, an Afghan Hound. The dog's owners were flight attendants and rarely traveled without their 4-legged companion. The invention was soon brought back stateside by Linda Murphy, the owner of the Sandshaker Beach Bar on busy Pensacola Beach, FL, where she experimented with the recipe creating her own version and doing much to popularize it there.
