50/50 Chance? Coin-Flip Choices for Eating Out at the Grande Cayman

There are so many restaurant choices in the equation on vacation.

 

Especially in Myrtle Beach. There are worthy choices everywhere, so we’ve picked two for each meal — and left it up to a coin flip. Toss caution into the wind, or at least into a flip of the coin.

 

Let’s get flipping.

Fun Facts About the Coin-Flipping History

We bet you didn’t know these. At least 50% of them.

  1. The Romans played “ship or head”

The first metal coins emerged in the 7th century BC. Romans called the coin flip “navia aut caput”, which means “ship or heads.”

 

  1. You should call the side that’s facing up to begin

Science says a coin has a 51% chance of landing with the side showing before you flip. It’s a slight advantage, but if you can see it, call it. Most people have a superstitious reason for calling heads or tails, though.

 

  1. Tails might have the edge

The head side can weigh more. That means it’s possible it’ll fall on that side more often than the other. It’s a toss-up.

BREAKFAST

Did you know that eating a good breakfast helps your body regulate glucose during the day? It’s best to eat within 2 hours of waking up.
