Golf Key West

I don’t really understand the game of golf or the allure it seems to hold for so many. Perhaps it’s because I almost killed some poor man with an errant swing of my club (I was showing off my

I walked six miles today at a very, very brisk pace in anticipation of where I’m taking you on this next Key West Cuisine Adventure. If you didn’t get any exercise today, then perhaps you shouldn’t read this until

Bareboat Charters in the Florida Keys

If you’re an experienced boater and by that I mean you’re as comfortable in the wheelhouse as you are in a car, you’d rather read a chart than a book and the rules of the road are second nature,

As if Key West didn’t already have enough love and romance, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and many are looking for a special way to show their unending devotion. The opportunities for lovey-dovey, hanky-panky abound from sunset

I’m an Irish girl and celebrate my ties to the Emerald Isle all year long; I don’t believe in wearing green and drinking like an amateur just on March 17thof each year. I pay homage to my heritage on

Better Than Sex

I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day because it always seemed too commercial, too forced. I want to walk in the room and find flowers because my husband wanted to surprise me not because the calendar and

Joe's Tap Room: Yes, Craft Beer Exists Here!

You’ve all seen the T-Shirts and bumper stickers that read, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy” and the quote is credited to Ben Franklin. It’s a lot of crap because old Ben didn’t

Garbo’s Grill: The Lone Food Truck

Food trucks seem to be the latest rage for foodies and I admit to dreaming about operating one from time to time. I love the idea of cooking what I love, serving it to others and watching them devour

  • This was a very entertaining and informative article about food trucks. Perhaps a solution is to ask the food truck owner to park where there are some seats.

There’s a dumpy little pile of rubbish on the corners of William and Caroline Streets that could easily be mistaken for a pile of hurricane debris when in fact it’s one of my favorite places to be entertained in

If you make a visit to Key West without snorkeling, you’re a complete moron. It’s one of the best places on earth to experience the underwater world, so grab your sunblock and find a boat to take you out

West Martello Tower

I really don’t understand people who call for the demolition of old structures, especially forts. I’m not really into the history of wars but I truly love old forts. To me, they feel alive and aware and I’m convinced

As a former U.S. Coast Guard civilian and the wife of a retired Coastie, I’m partial to one particular Key West museum. The Coast Guard Cutter Ingham has over fifty years of history serving our nation and her experiences

Kiteboarding is the Shiznits!

To avoid the dreaded “horse tax” the government imposed on those owning work horses in the 1800s, a brilliant man by the name of George Pocock used a series of kites to harness wind power to propel carts on

I’ve spent so much of my hard-earned cash at the Hog’s Breath Saloon, they should send me a monthly royalties check or, at the very least, put my name in lights. I don’t think it’s too much to ask.

How many public aquariums are you aware of that allow patrons to enter with their dog’s leash in one hand and a cocktail in the other? I’m aware of only one and it’s located at Mallory Square in Key

Nude Adventures in Key West

 

Years of living on an island have chipped away at my self-consciousness and fear of public nudity. The warmth of the sun convinced me it’s okay to go topless on our boat as we glide over the turquoise water

There are two kinds of people in this world; those who love going to the theater and those who’d rather get a root canal. I fall somewhere in between, which obviously blows my theory about there being only two

I’ve found that my level of creativity or perhaps the quality of what I create is greatly influenced by my surroundings. Living on an island, surrounded by beauty has helped me produce more creative pieces than while working in

Rather than performing the traditional Thanksgiving dance, which most likely involves stuffing yourself with turkey and the vast array of fattening sides, experience the day Key West style. A cold weather Thanksgiving is nice, but at least once in
