The original plan, after Redlands’ Dhat Island closed in November, the plan was to find a new place and reopen in the spring.
Fans are still waiting.
Tonight, however, fans will be able to enjoy some delicious Caribbean cuisine when the owners have a pop-up at Carolyn’s Cafe, 1711 Lugonia Ave., Suite 101, Redlands.
The event, which follows a similar pop-up two weeks ago, begins at 4:30 p.m.

Fans know Carolyn’s Cafe in Redlands is a great spot for breakfast or lunch.
However, man (and woman) does not live on breakfast and lunch alone. So, Carolyn’s Cafe is hosting another of its rare BBQ Nights this Saturday (February 21).
The restaurant will be serving pulled pork and brisket plates and sandwiches and a Southwest bacon avocado burger, along with side dishes and desserts — including Carolyn’s deliciously decadent coffee cake.
The event will take place from 4 to 7 p.m., but you probably want to get there early to avoid any sell-outs.
Carolyn’s Cafe is at 1711 W. Lugonia Ave., Suite 101.
