Foxy’s Old Year’s Night event to potentially feature on CNN, business operational again

Theresa ‘Tessa’ Callwood

Talks are being had to potentially have Foxy’s Tamarind Bar on Jost Van Dyke featured on international media giant CNN for their upcoming Old Year’s Night party that is held annually.

This is according to co-owner Theresa ‘Tessa’ Callwood who also outlined what she said are major plans for the establishment now that the business has reopened.

The local Health Department briefly ordered Foxy’s closed due to a sewerage issue which Callwood alleged was an act of sabotage engineered by a former operations director at the establishment.

“We’ve fixed everything, the Health people came and they were fine. They gave us a pass on everything. We’re back up and we’re ready to go,” she told BVI News.

The potential CNN feature

As for the feature on the international media, Callwood said: “We’ve had news from the BVI Tourist Board that CNN is interested in making us like a partner for their New Year’s Eve event that they broadcast and we’re looking to have a large party.”

Foxy’s is known for having one of the largest New Year’s Eve parties in the region and Callwood said plans are being finalised this year’s event.

“We’re hoping to hire Kymani Marley and we have a lineup that hasn’t been totally verified as yet but it will be great as usual,” Callwood stated.

Some of the other events slated for the remainder of 2019 include a Halloween party, the traditional Cat Fight Regatta and a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner event.

    Tessa always ran the business since she was capable as business manager. Same thing in many BVI businesses. Look at Myetts CGB; Marina Cay, Bath and Turtle VG, Cooper Island, Pirates Bight, Willie T. The list goes on… Certainly not saying Caribbean locals not a major part but truth is truth.

      please shut up. yall dont know what you are talking about. all these years she was the backbone…it was his children taking lumpsum loan from the bank to help him out … All he ever did was sit and played guitar while tourist take pictures and wife did everything else. Ask him where to purchase a case of beer. When you marry and have children, its for better or worse till death parts the two of you. Did he ever tell her he wants separation or divorce?
