KEY WEST CUISINE

By Florida Weekly Staff | March 21, 2019

Late-night Mary Ellen’s fries and the inevitable Mr. Z’s pizza to soak up all of those Corona Lights and shots of Patrón might have sounded like an excellent idea last night, but today is a new day and chances are your stomach and liver are in need of a cleanse. The words “healthy” and “Key West” don’t often show up […]

Spring Social is Florida Keys SPCA’s big fling

$8.4 million. That sum pales in comparison to, say, our Commander in Chief’s billion (and billion and billion) dollar demands for a wall along our country’s southern border, but it’s a monster figure for a small island chain looking to build a mere four walls to house our helpless furry friends. That sum is also the estimated cost for the […]

Fringe Theater presents the quirky comedy “The Clean House” through March 30 in the parish hall at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

OFF OFF DUVAL

By Florida Weekly Staff | March 21, 2019

The most traveled and visible street in Key West is only the beginning, the surface, of what the town has to offer. Ask locals about their favorite spots or stroll through quiet neighborhoods and down alleyways off Duval, and you’ll begin to dive deeper into the quieter, more diverse and less readily apparent offerings. Here are eight spots you might […]

FORT ZACH

By Florida Weekly Staff | March 21, 2019

FORT ZACHARY TAYLOR HISTORIC State Park, known simply as Fort Zach to locals, has gained a reputation as the best beach in Key West (with half-hearted apologies to runners up Smathers and Higgs beaches — there’s always next year, guys). Fort Zach’s beach area is one of the most photographed aerial landmarks of Key West: a white sand crescent dotted […]
