Dhat Island returns tonight

Dhat Island pop-upThe 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.
