Trinidad & Tobago Restaurant Week (TTRW) begins on Friday 25th September and runs until Sunday 4th October 2020. TTRW is a culinary celebration of the best and most delicious local restaurants. During this ten (10) day extravaganza, participating restaurants offer an exclusive menu at a fixed price per person.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, things are different this year, of course. TTRW has evolved and they are embracing a diverse new approach. This year, they are welcoming curb-side pick up, delivery and take-away options to the menus.
For the first time ever, TTRW invites you to indulge and enjoy the ambiance and comfort of your own home and get creative with date night, family dinner and small social gatherings, all for the great price points you’ve come to expect from their annual event. It’s time to celebrate the simple pleasures of spending quality time with those we love.
There are also a number of exciting giveaways this year.
Here’s how to get started with TTRW 2020:
As we all know, dining around the World has taken a massive hit over the last few months. Restaurants are closing down and jobs are being lost. Families are being affected. When you choose to order from a local restaurant, you're not only getting yourself a delicious meal but you're helping to save jobs and livelihoods.
Sony has announced that the PlayStation 5 will cost US $399.99 for the Digital Edition when it launches on 12th November 2020, while the regular version will cost US $499.99. The main difference between them will be the optical disc drive - the Digital Edition will not have one.
Pre-Orders began yesterday (17th September 2020) at “select retailers” but quickly sold out, leaving many fans disgruntled at Sony’s lack of proper prior notice.
Sony, of course, will be directly competing with Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, with the company set to release its entry-level Xbox Series S at US $299 and its flagship Xbox Series X for US $499 on 10th November 2020.
Sony’s release date for the PS5 (12th November 2020) applies to the U.S, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The rest of the World will get the new console on 19th November 2020. Sony has yet to finalize a release date for China, which will be announced at a later time.
According to Radio Times:
One of the biggest selling points of the PS5 is the custom SSD rather than a hard drive. This means the PS5 will be able to read data quicker and more efficiently, meaning bigger open worlds, near-instant load times and fewer texture pop-ins. Essentially the SSD means the PS5 is going to be really fast - around 100 times quicker than the PS4.
The PlayStation 4 initially cost US $399 at launch, although it currently sells for US $299, while the PlayStation 4 Pro originally sold for US $399 - a price it still usually sells at today. It’s unclear if Sony is planning to drop prices or discontinue the older models once the PlayStation 5 is out later this year.
The PlayStation 5 will be backwards-compatible with an “overwhelming majority” of existing PlayStation 4 games.
Chadwick Boseman has battled colon cancer since 2016 and died at home with his family and wife by his side, according to a statement posted on his Twitter account. He was 43. Boseman's breakout performance came in 2013 when he played Jackie Robinson in the film ‘42.’
Born in South Carolina, he always had an affinity for theater, and wrote his first play in high school. He attended the famous HBCU, Howard University, and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine arts. He started his career in writing and directing, but clearly, he was meant to be on the other side of the camera.
Boseman made his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut in 2016 as T'Challa/Black Panther in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’ ‘Black Panther’ then got his own stand-alone movie that released in 2018, which broke box office records.
Marvel Studios President had previously announced the second movie of the ‘Black Panther’ saga would debut in theaters in May 2022. The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in ‘Get On Up’ and Thurgood Marshall in ‘Marshall.’
Actor Mark Ruffalo, who starred aside Boseman in the Marvel movies as the Hulk, said the death adds to the growing list of tragedies in 2020.
The impact he had on Hollywood, while too short, was phenomenal. He also hosted 'SNL' in a very memorable episode.

Many Trini KFC fans rejoiced and drooled at the idea of being able to soon taste their finger-licking chicken once again. You’ll recall the chaos with long lines to enter KFC branches and their drive-thrus several weeks ago when it was announced they would have to close operations completely.
Well KFC is well-aware of the high pent-up demand and is fueling that fire by going live on Facebook to countdown the hours until they re-open - with over a hundred people locked on and staring at their screens. At the time of this writing, there is roughly 19 hours to go!
