#KEYS STRONG

We’re all just working our way back to abnormal


FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE, THERE HAS BEEN A MASSIVE media magnifying glass on the Florida Keys over the past couple of weeks. While we’re no strangers to national attention (e.g., Fantasy Fest photos all over USA Today and CNN’s annual feature of our epic, shoe-dropping New Year’s celebration), Hurricane Irma has cast a bit of a shadow over our […]

Key West on the rebound from the inside out



Let’s face it – the past month has been none too kind to our beautiful island home. Not only is September already a notoriously slow month for the service industry, but you don’t need this author to tell you how devastating a natural disaster of any magnitude is to a community comprised of majority of service industry employees. But although […]

Its namesake never saw it, but Audubon House still worth a look



It’s midway through the tour of Key West’s stunningly pretty Audubon House and Tropical Gardens that the truth comes out: John James Audubon — famed naturalist painter, whose lifelike paintings of bird portraits line the walls of the museum — never actually lived in the Audubon House.

MUSIC SCENE

Jay Bangles: Music with a smile


I’m ashamed to say that I hadn’t heard Jared Konersman, aka Jay Bangles, perform until 24 hours before writing this article. In our conversations leading up to the show I found it hard to believe that this soft-spoken crooner could command an entire rowdy crowd at Irish Kevin’s five nights a week. He was just sooo nice. The infamous rambunctious […]

LOCAL FOCUS

For the love of chocolate with Stephanie Pino


Chocolate. One of things things I like to include in my travels is to search out a local chocolatier. Not only is chocolate sinful and delicious, but typically, the great confectioners of the world like to mix chocolate with the flavors of their neighborhoods. If it’s from the islands it might be coconut, from Europe it might include something a […]

Hemingway’s Key West legacy and six-toed cats


The crown jewel of Key West’s rich literary legacy, which has attracted writers such as Tennessee Williams, Ralph Ellison, Robert Frost and Carson McCullers, is Ernest Hemingway’s old home at 907 Whitehead Street. The sprawling two-story property is a National Historic Landmark where Mr. Hemingway lived and wrote during most of the 1930s. It is also famously home to about […]

BARTENDER OF THE WEEK

Getting crafty with Cheguevara Andre


From the inside, Caroline’s Other Side could be anywhere. In a sprawling metropolis like San Francisco or London, or in a trendy city like Asheville or Portland, but in Key West it seems almost out of place a little, like a true speakeasy should. Its decor is sexy. Its atmosphere is sophisticated, to say the least. Its menu is all […]
