There is always something fun going on in the Florida Keys! This month, July 16- 21, Key West celebrated Hemingway Days. This celebration of all things Ernest Hemingway includes a fishing tournament, look-a-like contests and the famous “running of the bulls” featuring Papa Hemingway look-a-likes running down Duval Street.

If watching other people run down the street is not your idea of fun, there is also a Hemingway 5K and Paddleboard race. The 5K is a scenic, flat course and run in the evening. This is the oldest ongoing 5K in Key West. I wonder how Pap Hemingway would have felt about it…

On the dining front, Hot Tin Roof, long a fine dining staple in Key West at the Ocean Key Resort, has now tarted serving lunch. No need to wait for dinner to enjoy the great menu and truly outstanding drinks. Plus the view - from both the patio and dining room - is one of the best in Key West!
