A picture is worth 1000’s words…..Julies dream was to be Miss Jacksonville.She had incredible interview skills,outstanding talent….all that held her back was swimsuit….those days are long gone…..I worked with pageant contestants across the country,I have no doubt that the new “Julie” could have won it all.

So what now for her? She’s addressing congress this week…Im sure she will do the talk show circuit…..but one thing I believe is she still has the “Pageant Bug”.This was evident in her clothing for finale night,as well as the way she walked and spoke….

So Julie, if you read this,I want to encourage you to do the Mrs.America Pageant.Its not some cheesy pageant,several former Miss Florida’s have competed in the “Mrs” contests.The world is your stage and its time you heard those words that escaped you….

Key West New Years!!!
December 10, 2007

tagline.gifbartndrlogo.jpg 

Kick off the shoes, take off the tie and lose yourself in Margaritaville.

Key West is a step back into time, in fact, into no time. It’s a place of slow pace, of changing attitudes, of free-flowing spirits and free spirited individuals.

The southernmost city in the United States, closer to Havana than Miami (90 miles to 150), Key West is a tiny spec of land, three miles wide by five miles long that was the home to Hemmingway, the beginnings of Buffett and the destination of weekend revelers from South Florida, Europeans on holiday and anyone else looking for a place in the sun or just to escape the grind of the everyday world.

Don’t be surprised if a planned three-day vacation turns into a mad scramble to catch the Last Flight Out. Or even lasts a lifetime. It’s called “Keys Disease” and it has stricken many a traveler to these parts.

Louie’s Backyard
December 9, 2007

newadlogosm.gifnewlouieslogosm.gifdining.gifad2ocean.jpg 

Key West in the early 1900’s was a wealthy, rowdy town — where men lived close to the sea, where wrecking and sponging were major industries, and a brave man with a fast boat could easily make a fortune salvaging goods from ships wrecked by the whims of wind and wave.
Captain James Randall Adams was one such wrecker. Having made his fortune, he ordered the construction of a gracious Classic Revival Home on Waddell Street — the building that is now known as Louie’s Backyard. Captain Adams was fond of boasting that everything in his home, with it’s unusual two-story side porch and Doric columns was salvaged merchandise. The house stayed in the Adams family for years. It then changed owners several times before it was bought by Frances and Louie Signorelli, who opened the first Louie’s Backyard — a restaurant that seated twelve, had one lone waiter, and operated out of a cigar box.

The restaurant, growing quickly, soon became famous for it’s fine food and relaxed oceanfront ambiance — and for Ten Speed , the legendary mutt that sauntered up to the outdoor bar most afternoons for his customary cocktail of Kahlua and cream! Frequented by the likes of Jimmy Buffett and Tom McGuane , Louie’s Backyard received award after award for it’s superb cuisine.

Construction and renovation of the new Louie’s Backyard began in January, 1983 and it opened on December 27, 1983. The present owners, Phil Tenney and Pat Tenney, carry on the established tradition of dining excellence. The building has been lovingly renovated and enlarged, with special attention paid to maintaining it’s historical integrity. In fact, in June of 1984, Louie’s Backyard earned a place in the National Register of Historic Places . Open dining and cocktail decks leading down to the ocean let the diner at Louie’s experience the warm, heady atmosphere of Key West at it’s very best. It is this insistence on quality in service, as well as food, and an extensive wine list that has won so many friends for the new Louie’s Backyard.

Lunch regulars have told us “the Conch Fritters are the best in Key West. Dinner regulars praise the Conch Chowder and many fish dishes we serve.

Upstairs at Louie’s is a private dining room for groups of 20 to 40. This room is enclosed on two sides by french doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. A theatre kitchen flanked by white columns and private bar complete this scene. This private dining room and theatre kitchen feature the same bill of fare as the main dining room.

Key West New Years!!!
December 6, 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)
