[Big John’s Place] Thanks for the memories.

It’s 3 days left before 2016 ends. It was good for some and bad for the others. We most recently had Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) pass away, before that George Micheal, David Bowie among many other very iconic people leaving life on Earth – we hope wherever they go, they’ll be happy.

Here at Big John’s Place, we’re very grateful for all the support and love you, as our guests and staff, have shown us. Here are some pictures that reflected the whole of 2016. We hope you’ll enjoy the pictures!

1482573651000Thank you for making us Tripadvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Destination for year 2016.

1482574535000Love from John and everyone at Big Jon’s Place. P/s: yes, it’s heavily photoshopped. John doesn’t look like this is real life and his hands are not floating hands

 2016 has been a wonderful ride with all of you, lets hope for a better 2017!
