Location:
The location for Caesar’s Army A.M. Bush is secret, all I would say is that it is in Chaguaramas, you park and then shuttled to the actual pre J’ouvert party/lime before hitting the streets come sun up.

Ambiance/Décor:
Nature is your ambiance and décor, which fit in with the “Me Jane, You Tarzan” Jungle theme that Caesar’s Army had going for all their events this year. Bush, bush and more bush was what we were surrounded by.

Bar:
There were two bar trucks serving rum (Single Barrel, White Oak and Black Label) and vodka .When we were stationary we also got tequila shots.

Food:
Breakfast was served once we hit the road, hops and ham or hops and saltfish. There were very generous in giving you as many as you wanted and it tasted good enough on empty bellies full of rum in the wee hours of the morning! There was also a doubles stall when we got back to the car park.

Performances:
Fresh from his Soca Monarch double win Machel Montano gave an impromptu concert on the truck along with Beenie Man. Unexpected surprise which was enjoyed by many but the Beenie Man session could have been shorter, no offense but we wanted only SOCA!


Crowd Vibe:
Amazing, reminded me of Scorch cruise in Barbados for Cropover on land. First off everyone was welcoming to the anointing and blessing with paint from my crew. As soon as someone arrived clean we bathed them in paint and it was all in good fun and well appreciated. The guys even gave us their bare torso to decorate with hand prints. No bottom was left denied by the men (and women) you were greeted with a wine …over and over and over and over! Best bunch of people I partied with all Carnival season!



Eye Candy
To tell the truth who could see faces in the dark? Plus it is J’ouvert, the women didn’t come out to look cute they came out to get “dutty”, paint in nostrils, bucket on head; this was not a posing party! But between me and you lets just say if you can look cute at J'ouvert (see pics) you got yourself a pretty good looking crowd and some of those guys were yummy! 

Bathroom:
There were porta potties in the jungle during the pre J’ouvert party however in keeping with theme many people just opted to use the bush and get in touch with nature!

Extras
We were not allowed to park at the venue (for good reason) since the J’ouvert jump up actually took you back to the Car Park. The shuttles were prompt, on time, regular and they kicked off the vibes because they were blasting soca once you got in.


And how could I forget the WATER TRUCKS! Yes, I ran from them! 


Overall Rating:
Caesar’s Army A.M Bush scores 10 out of 10 for me! I have not done J’ouvert in 13 years for the fact that I was always too tired to fully enjoy my Monday Mas experience. I felt that I had to sacrifice one to enjoy the other and since I was paying thousands for my mas J’ouvert got kicked to the curb. The alternative J’ouvert idea is absolutely brilliant! A safe and secure J’ouvert experience (we had police presence the entire time) free from stormers. It was EPIC, my BEST J'ouvert EVER !
