February 5 – MARCH 8, 2008

 

By Shel Silverstein

Directed By Gary McDonald

A fresh take on a new collection of short plays by one of Key West’s favorite authors. Shel’s unique view of modern life, combined with his uncompromising artist’s skill, makes for another unforgettable evening of hilariously warped and unpredictable vignettes. A wide range of scenarios are played out with the biting wit and a sometimes twisted view of everyday life. The adult and playful work of Shel Silverstein returns to our stage in all its mischievous glory.

February 05 to March 08, in Key West
“Shel Shocked” at Red Barn Theatre
The theatre at 319 Duval St. is proud to bring back more of Shel Silverstein’s short plays.

Fight Night in Key West
January 14, 2008

KEY WEST, Florida Keys – In the 1930s, when he wasn’t writing, fishing or indulging at Sloppy Joe’s Bar, Ernest Hemingway often officiated boxing matches outside a small bordello near his Spanish colonial home on Whitehead Street.

That tradition is scheduled to return to Key West in a harborside series of bouts set for Friday, Jan. 18, at Mallory Square.

Dubbed “Fight Night in the Keys,” the seven-bout evening card is to feature a title fight and is slated for a live broadcast on ESPN 2’s “Friday Night Fights.”

“There is a very rich history of boxing in Key West,” said Si Stern, a Key West resident who manages several boxers. “When Hemingway lived here, there were a number of championship fights.”

Scheduled marquee events include Randall Bailey, a former two-time junior welterweight world champion, against Anthony Mora for the WBC Latin American Belt and Tarvis Simms versus a contender to be announced.

General admission tickets begin at $35 per person and cap at $165 per person for VIP seats that also includes parties and a pre-fight reception with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Bruno Vs Carrie Ann
January 1, 2008

Get ready for a new dance show on ABCGet ready for some more dancing on the ABC television network. In addition to the 70 hours of weekly programming you’ll get when Dancing with the Stars returns to the schedule in a few weeks there will be a new series premiering mid-season that will pit two of the show’s judges in competition.

The show is called Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann and is hosted by former Stars champion Drew Lachey. The six-week program will feature judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as they work with amateur performers who can dance and sing. The result will be the formation of “the ultimate dance team”. Open auditions for the show will be held this month in New York, Nashville and Los Angeles.

Also premiering later this season is Tom Bergeron has a Nervous Breakdown, which challenges the host of Dancing with the Stars and America’s Funniest Home Videos to host as many programs as he can before he collapses into a sobbing pile of pudding.

Cafe Sole
December 28, 2007

After years of study, cooking and refining his skills in France, John Correa returned to the states, met his wife Judy and opened this unpretentious, intimate little restaurant in Key West. In a very short order, Café Solé captured the hearts and palates of locals and visitors lucky enough to discover this culinary gem off the beaten path. By combining his French mastery of sauces with fresh locally caught seafood, John has created a menu unlike any on the island, where every dish is bursting with indescribable flavors. Mutton snapper in pesto and champagne, yellowtail in a beurre blanc of lobster or a rare hog snapper with red pepper zabaglione top a list of nightly specials. As for the classics, the Duck a  L’Orange, Rack of Lamb with herb de Province and Lobster Bouillaise are as authentic as you will find this side of Paris. Chef Correa combines the best of both of his worlds, European and Caribbean to win the People’s Choice and Best Entree awards at a recent Master Chefs Classic. With his creative cuisine, a knowledgeable wait staff and a “joie de vivre” ambiance, Café Solé is a must visit for Key West!

New Years in Key West
December 26, 2007

Once again the Key West New Year’s Eve celebration will be shown live on CNN.

No doubt about it…Key West love’s to party. And what’s a better excuse than New Year’s Eve?

Three different gathering spots offer their own unique version of the time honored tradition of lowering something special as the clock winds away the last seconds of the year.

Your choices are:

  1. to see a big conch shell lowered from atop Sloppy Joe’s Bar…a crowded and boistrous affair
  2. to see a Pirate Wench lowered from the mast of a schooner in the Historic Seaport
  3. or, (CNN’s favorite) to see Sushi, a local drag queen celeb, lowered from a Duval Street balcony, riding a huge high-heeled shoe.

Whatever your choice, we at Key West Travel Guide want to wish everyone a New Year filled with joy, coconuts, a nice tan, good health, laughter, and wonderment.

Oh…and peace on Earth (come on World…make believe you just booked a vacation to Key West)
