This Week onthe Island 06/22/2014

‘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: Summer arrive on Jun 21st. I noticed that it was cooler here that in the north east of the USA.
This week I read ‘Orchid Beach’ by Stuart Woods.
This week started with ‘The Key West Tutu Run’.

Finnegan’s Wake has closed. It was a great restaurant/bar where we could get a big meal for not such a big price.

I got to wondering, where are we going to eat now? So here are some places that not all the tourist know about.
How about Cuban Coffee Queen on Lazy Way Lane. Their Cuban mix sandwich has a bar-b-qued taste.

Or maybe Five Brothers on the corner of Grinnell and Southard. Their Cuban mix sandwich is original Cuban. (see def below)

Then there is the Inca Restaurant on White Street.

Or maybe even Sandy’s on White Street. Very popular, especially late at night.

Of course if we are very hungry and want lots of Cuban food, there is El Siboney. I really like their Cuban roast pork with black beans and plantains.

My wife really likes the Key West Cuban sandwich at The Court House Deli just across Whitehead from the Green Parrot. On voting days she likes to get a Cuban  mix and eat it at the Green Parrot with an adult beverage.

The Cuban mix sandwich is an undeniably delicious sandwich which is grilled and made with ham, pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and Cuban bread. The essential ingredient is the marinated mojo roasted pork. The Key West Cuban mix has lettuce, tomato, and mayo.

I would like to thank all my friends that were in town and dropped by or stopped me on the street to say ‘hi’. It is always a pleasure to see you.

Key West you have got to love it
