Peri-Peri chicken is absolutely the star of the show here.

It’s October… Almost Fantasy Fest

This is me and FKGuy. We are very fancy.

It is October. Hard to believe, but it’s a fact. That means a few things in Key West: It still feels like summer, only a more tolerable version; snowbirds start to flock back south this month; and, of course, it is nearly time for Fantasy . . . → Read More: It’s October… Almost Fantasy Fest

5 Rules For Being a Good House Guest

Usually, it’s as easy as plying your hosts with dessert… and wine.

We really should have installed a revolving door at the entrance to our house. We are in the midst of six weekends in a row of house guests (not to mention two of the three previous weekends, and one of the two . . . → Read More: 5 Rules For Being a Good House Guest

Brunch: My New Favorite Party

The bar setup is crucial to any good party.

Wine-O at La Concha Key West

Downstairs in the La Concha hotel, facing Duval Street, sits Wine-O, a new wine bar/retail shop. I was invited to check it out, and since I never turn down wine, off we went. I am always eager to check out new places, especially if there is food and wine involved.

Sunday Brunch at The Westin, Key West

The first of many mimosas.

Somehow, we had never made it to Sunday Brunch at The Westin before this past weekend. How is that possible? I have no idea. I am, generally, a creature of habit and have had many brunches of late at Hot Tin Roof, 2 Cents, Azur and Blackfin. But we . . . → Read More: Sunday Brunch at The Westin, Key West

As I am driving a load of stuff from IKEA, Costco and Target down to Key West (and vacillate between thinking our lack of shopping is charming or downright absurd), I am once again reminded of how much moving sucks.

Back and Forth, and Back Again in the Chevy Suburban

The Chevy Suburban makes a trip to IKEA a breeze.

There are many people (like my mother) who routinely say things like “Ugh. I can’t believe how often you drive between the mainland and Key West. How can you stand it? Isn’t it boring?” I normally shrug off such comments and go about my . . . → Read More: Back and Forth, and Back Again in the Chevy Suburban
