This Week on the Island 12/06/2015

‘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:  I am sure glad that the rain/hurricane season was over 1 December. We have got lots of rain since then. The sun came back out Saturday.
 The book this week was ‘Shark Skin Suite’ by Tim Dorsey.
It is kind of in between things here in Key West, so I thought some old pictures may be nice.
Pepe’s when it was at 202 Duval Street.
208 Duval was ‘The 208 Bar’, then ‘The Old Anchor Inn’ and is now The Red Garter and part of the Durty Harry Complex.
B.O.’s Fish Wagon when it was a wagon on Duval.
The Duval Club long before it was Captain Tony’s.
The Gulf of Mexico end of Duval Street before ‘Zero Duval’ and the current Pier House and  Sun Set Pier.
The old Fishermans Café where Harpoon Harry’s is now.
Before ‘The Bull and Whistle’.
Tank Island now called Sunset Key
The Charcoal Hut is now ‘Willie T’s’.
We leave you with the opening of Margaritaville at Lands’ End near Turtle Kraals’.
Key West you have got to love it
