Nice RR. Thanks for posting all those Fantasy of Flight pics - some amazing machines in there! I need to get out there someday! Sad thing is - I lived in Tampa Bay for 6 years and never went! Go figure...

Boy, I sure did like going south on holiday.

current conditions at my house are not that great for riding.

Well, at least I threaded the weather needle successfully.

The most ethnic food in Key West is Cuban which is not at all spicey like Mexican food and is focussed on meat, rice and plantains. El Siboney on Catherine at Margaret is the best Cuban restaurant with huge portions and classic Cuban diner decor and service. It is considerably cheaper than Blue Heaven. For beachfront eating Blue Heaven's owner also owns Salute at Higgs Beach which is a nice Italian by the sea eatery. Just four choices among dozens.
Formal clothing is not required anywhere so go as you are.
Bar hopping is a time honored past time but if you need food eat first as most of the food you will see on Duval is second rate and/or expensive. There are exceptions but this isn't the time or place to go into details. A nice waterfront bar with classic Keys ambiance is Schooner Wharf at Key West Bight. The Green Parrot is also popular and would be good now as there is no a/c. Park your ride on the sidewalk on Whitehead Steet at Southard unless you were smart enough to take a cab. To sit and drink beer on the beach go to the southern end of Duval and stop by the new Beach Club. I've only been there late at night when rather impaired but it seemed okay under those conditions, feet in sand beer in hand and moon hanging over the water (it's a bit rainy at the moment for that). Rain comes and goes quickly around here and hypothermia is purely theoretical.
For a fish sandwich ask for Sandy's Cafe on white street at Virginia open 24 hours which is also a good place for a cafe con leche for a breakfast coffee and pretend you are Cuban by eating a cheese toast with it.

I will be using this info for my trip down in a week. It's been over 10 years since I was last in Key West and can't remember the names of anywhere I ate, much less what I had. It was fantasy fest blurr, I surely remember the Garden of Eden, Sloppy Joes and that's about it.
