They were the places to be seen on the scene. On any given night, you could walk in and count on seeing pretty much everyone you knew. Then there was a lull—no main gathering spots, no places to dance. The island atmosphere began to shift from party animals to families bringing their animals. Basically, the thrill was gone, baby.

Sunkist is a brand consumers can trust for quality, fresh, delicious and premium fruit. The Sunkist farmers honor traditional growing practices, stewardship of natural resources, and a dedication to innovation. This philosophy has been proudly passed down year after year, crop after crop.
