1. Re: The Top 10 things to do in Key West

Well here is my top 10

1. Afternoon at Hogs Breath Raw Bar.

2. Attend Conch Tale Hour

3. Breakfast at Pepes

4. Catch Pete and Wayne a Sloppys

5. Take a walk at sunrise, while most of the island is still sleeping and for a minute, it almost feels like what it must have been like to be here 40 years ago.

6. Play poker on the deck of the galleon... No better view in the world IMO.

7. Go to KW Cigar Factory and load up on a few choice cigars.

8. Making new friends at every bar I have a drink at.

9. Have the steak at Conch Republic Seafood Company

10. Watch one of your hometown teams play a game at either Sports Page or Jack Flats (Rum Barrel if your from Philly) and act like it's game 7 of the world series, even if it's just game 31 of the reg season=)

Of course these are all just off the top of my head...

PJK has posted this favorite spot to read several times. Last May I stopped by the Peir House to see if PJK was around and he was in this very spot. PJK bought me a Bloody Mary at the Beach side Bar (very good by the way). This year it's my turn to buy, see you in May PJK.

8. Re: The Top 10 things to do in Key West

For newbies. There is a standing invite for drinks at the beach-side bar on the beach at the Pier House when I'm in Key West. I'm not IN everyday on a trip, though.

C'mon down y'all.
