Name This Bar and Win a Hotel Stay in Belize

Spring may be coming soon, but if you need a warm-weather vacay pronto, play "name that bar" and you could be heading to Belize. St. George's Caye Resort will award a three-night stay to the person who comes up with the best name for its bar, which now bears the moniker the Conch Lounge.

The resort's recent renovation included six new cabanas, an island-themed spa and a tropical garden, so officials figured it was time to rename the bar to better reflect its atmosphere. And what better way to choose a new name than hold a contest.

To give you some inspiration, we'll set the scene: The elevated bar, made of local hardwood, offers views of the beach. The doors stay open, allowing the sea breeze to permeate the space. It's supposed to be a chill spot; the favorite seat in the house is a rope hammock swing that hangs from the ceiling.

Groups come in to play board games and peruse the reading material, which includes fish and diving books and a trade-in library. Another reason why people hang there is that domestic beer and bar beverages are included in the nightly rate along with appetizers, so all guests linger there before dinner.

If bevvies and eats get your creative juices flowing, house specialties include the Mango-rita, blended mango and tequila; the Beach Cruiser, spiced rum with cranberry and orange juices; and Island Punch, spiced rum blended with lime and orange juices. Popular appetizers are indigenous foods such as seafood wontons; crabsicles, panko-encrusted crab balls served on a stick with cucumber-dill dip; and conch ceviche.

Entries must be submitted online by midnight March 31. You must be 18 or older and a resident of the U.S. or Canada to play the name game.
