This Week on the Island 08/10/2014

‘This week on the Island' is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those parts that are lies.

Weather: A hurricane formed off the east coast of Florida on Monday, but it did not come our way. We had rain and humidity.
This week I started reading ‘The True Sea’ by F. W. Belland.
Sunday was Battle of the Bars on Lazy Way Lane behind Schooner Wharf.

Teams from bars run an obstacle course to see who gets the best times with no mistakes. (1) The first team member mixes a margarita, (2) The second member takes the margarita to the table (3) The third team member drinks the margarita (best job on the team), (4) The fourth member cleans the table and runs to the recycle bins and put the right stuff in the right bins (5) The fifth member rolls a keg to the table and puts in the tap. (6) The sixth member pours 6 beers and carries them to their teammates. Each teammate drinks their beer and put the glass on their head before the next team member can drink their beer. Time stops when the last team member puts their empty beer glass on their head.

This week end we had Lobster Fest. Where else can you sit on the curb of the street in 90 degree heat and eat lobster and drink beer.

If you missed Lobster Fest, they have a lobster special at Half Shell Raw Bar.

We leave you this week with another Key West sunset. This one from Howard Livingston and Facebook.

Jo and I just watched 'Russkies' on Movie-Plex. It is a 1987 film and is pretty dumb, but it was filmed in Key West and we enjoyed arguing about where each scene was filmed.

Key West you have got to love it
