  • Slangday: Greeze

    I haven't been to a lot of islands, but Bermudian slang seems to be endemic. The English is almost unrecognizable to an outsider - mainly because so many different cultures coexisted and subsequently hybridized. I hereby dub Sunday blog posts as "Slangday," where I'll teach you whatever cool word I learned that week.

    Greeze · noun \grēz\

    A meal, especially one that's large or fulfilling.

    Example: "Let's head to de wharf for sum greeze, I'm starving!"

    My all-time favorite Bermuda greeze is the raisin bread fish sandwich from Art Mel's Spicy Dicy. I swear, you haven't lived until you've eaten one of these monsters.
