In the 1930s, Democrats in Congress founded the Jefferson Island Club as a hangout spot. Presidents Roosevelt and Truman were known to pop in from time to time. More information on the club's storied history can be found here.


What kind of a name is


St Catherine Island


The actual island that Bwisland takes place on is called St Catherine Island. It's not as historically flashy as its neighbor, St Clement's Island   -- where Maryland's first colonists landed -- but it shines in its understatement.




Once a year, a group of friends would hang out during "Best Week Ever." One year this took place on the island, and over time, BWE + island created the awkward portmanteau we use today.
