A fire late last night gutted the interior of Happy Belly's. Those of you who have been here will have a least passed Happy Belly's, if not actually sat down and waited an interminable amount of time to get served. You'll know exactly where HB's is.
For y'all that haven't made it yet, HB was a fairly popular beach-side restaurant about a mile from Ola Lola's in Jobos. At one time Happy Belly's was pretty good. Lately, service has suffered and the food has been mediocre at best. I don't think we've been there since we moved here, but it's still sad to see a local institution destroyed.
There are rumors the fire was arson but there has been no official word on cause. Here is a link to the article in El Nuevo Dia newspaper. (Thanks, Zan, for the link.)
The kitchen and bar areas were pretty much destroyed. No idea if or when they might rebuild and/or reopen.
