In its precolonial days, it was said that the island was once a communal graveyard, littered with the bones of prior inhabitants. Key West became an official territory of the United States in 1822, but its rich history spans well beyond the past […]

The Key West Business Guild says goodbye to Matt Hon

Key West bleeds rainbows. Rainbow flags hang from bed and breakfasts and private residences all over town. Rainbow tutus pop out of store windows and a disproportionately high number of closets. For goodness sake, even the crosswalks haven’t escaped our obsession with the multi-hued symbol of diversity and inclusion. Since its creation in 1978, the Key West Business Guild has […]

The Fringe Theater present ‘The Regina Monologues’

History meets #Metoo

Misuse of power. Seduction. Manipulation. Love. Betrayal. Five hundred years of politics and sex, and one could argue that little has changed.
