Key West Hemingway Days July 15-20th

Key West Hemingway Days July 15-20th | Key West Florida | Scoop.it

KEY WEST, Florida Keys — Ernest Hemingway was a popular icon  who lived, loved and wrote "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "To Have and Have Not." while living on the island.

 

Key West celebrates this Nobel Prize-winning author's legacy for the 34th year on July 15-20, 2014, with fun events saluting his literary talents and vivacious Key West lifestyle.

 

Hemingway Days 2014 includes a popular look-alike contest at the Famous Sloppy Joe's Bar on Duval Street (a favorite bar he loved), authors' readings, an offbeat "Running of the Bulls," a marlin tournament and the culmination of a short story contest directed by author and Hemingway granddaughter Lorian Hemingway.

 

It's such a site to see roughly 125 stocky, bearded men resembling Ernest are to compete in Sloppy Joe's Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest. Now in its 34rd year, the competition is staged at Sloppy Joe's Bar, 201 Duval St.


Don't miss this event. Thursday and Friday, July 18 and 19. The winner will be chosen Saturday night by a judging panel of past winners. For more information and registration, visit sloppyjoes.com.

 

The "Papas" also take part in other festival activities, including Saturday's "Photos with Papas" at noon and "Running of the Bulls" at 1 p.m. — an offbeat salute to Pamplona's sporting challenge featuring man-made bulls.

 

Rounding out the festival are a lively daylong street fair on Key West's Duval Street, a Hemingway film screening and Sloppy Joe's 28th annual Arm Wrestling Championship.

Party in Key West: The Most Beautiful Drive in the U.S.A.

Party in Key West: The Most Beautiful Drive in the U.S.A. | Key West Florida | Scoop.it
Key West News Key West Florida, The Most Beautiful Drive in the U.S.A.You know the old saying, it isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey? Well that even applies when you are planning a vacation to the most beautiful party capital in the world, Key West! Buzzfeed recently listed the Top 20 most scenic drives in the U.S., http://www.buzzfeed.com/toyota/the-20-most-scenic-drives-in-america-3d8x and, not surprisingly, our exquisite island of Key West made it to #1. Yes, there are certainly some beautiful places to see from behind the wheel in this four-climate country of ours. For example, the Maine Coast is not to be missed if you are planning to be in the Northeast. With rocky shores, and pretty old lighthouses dotting the coast, along with plenty of bird and boat watching, this is Old New England at its finest. Another incredible journey to make is the California coast: from Redwood Highway, to Yosemite, and beyond, the sights in the sunny, blue-sky state are sure to make for a memorable ride. And of course the red rocks of Arizona are a winner, if you want to get a cruise-the-open-road, Thelma and Louise kind of vibe. But let’s be honest: the most stunning, jaw-dropping view that is sure to take your breath away is the drive along the Overseas Highway http://www.fla-keys.com/highway.cfm as you make your way to Key West. This 110-mile highway actually runs the length of the Keys, and you can drive to every single island if you are so inclined. So if you are flying into Miami, do yourself a favor and rent a convertible at the airport, put the top down, your shades on, blast some tunes, and put the pedal to the metal. You will remember your journey into Key West forever. You won’t know how many different shades of blue there are until you see the ocean change along this route—from brilliant turquoise, to sparkling aqua, to seafoam green—the panoramic view from the Overseas Highway will knock your flip flops off. This isn’t a drive to take if you are in a hurry and just want to be there. This trip, nicknamed “the Magic Carpet Ride,” is to be savored from the first hour to the last—and count on a three to four-hour ride from Miami to Key West. And if you are driving at sunset, forget it; you could cry it’s so gorgeous (but don’t do that, because party central awaits you!) That giant, glorious orange ball of the sun will slowly descend into the brilliant blue sea, sending strands of purple, pink, and yellow up into a sky that sparkles with a million twinkling stars. So remember, when you are planning your trip to Key West, don’t forget to plan on putting the top down and soaking in the unbelievably breathtaking views!

Bring Sexy Back! Top 7 Ways to Bring Sexy Back…in Key West!

 

TOP 7 WAYS TO BRING SEXY BACK … IN KEY WEST! 

 

Key West Florida - So much has been said about the wild party vibe in Key West, but there are just as many ways to spend 
tender time with your honey here. Our enchanted little island is the perfect place to propose, get married, renew your wedding vows, or just to escape the grind for a romantic getaway. Perhaps you’re looking for a trip to renew the romance in your relationship? If you’d like to “bring the sexy back” that once drew you together, or if you are excited to explore a brand new relationship in a new place – Key West is the key to romance. Here is our Top 7 list of romantic ways to get your sexy on in Key West: 1 His and Hers MassagesWaking up in Key West is waking up in paradise. Enjoy your morning with some breakfast in bed, and then take the pampering a step further with his and hers massages!  Prana Spa is an intimate little day spa located in Old Town, where licensed massage therapists will bring you to the deepest level of serenity. Enjoying a massage together is an especially sensual and romantic date that you will remember for years to come. http://www.pranaspakeywest.com/ 2

 

Rent a Scooter - Hop on a scooter with your sweetie at your back, and cruise around the island tandem style! There is nothing more romantic than heading to the southern-most tip of the island, enjoying the crystal blue vista (and possibly spotting Cuba in the distance!) and making out with your sweetheart under the brilliant blue sky.

 http://partyinkeywest.com/pages/keywestmopedrentals.html   3

 

Champagne Picnic on the Beach - There are a ton of fantastic restaurants to check out in Key West, but we think one of the most romantic venues involves planting your toes in the sand and sharing a picnic lunch with your babe. Pick up a bottle of bubbly, some sandwiches, and a slice of key lime pie, and head on over to the Simonton Street Beach. Feed each other as you watch the sailboats, pelicans, and sparkling sea, and you will have shared an intimate and memorable lunch of a  lifetime. 4 Better than SexIf it’s possible there is anything better than sex, this place could be it. This cheeky little dessert bar flaunts pure decadence. Indulge yourselves in this low-lit, elegant eatery – a positively sexy date alternative to cocktails at a bar (though you can have your cocktail AND your dessert here!). Your night is no doubt headed in an amorous direction if you’re sharing menu items like “Tongue Bath Truffle,” or “Between My Red Velvet Sheets” Cheesecake! http://www.betterthansexkeywest.com/ 5


Sunset sail - It’s a cinematic and spectacular scene: you step aboard a gorgeous schooner, share a glass of champagne, and watch the golden sun sink into the pink horizon. The stars emerge in the night sky, and you both contemplate the amazing day you shared in magical Key West. Could there possibly be anything more romantic than that?  http://partyinkeywest.com/pages/keywestsightseeing.html 6


Night Club and Drag Show - Sometimes romance is simply stepping out of the mundane and into the flamboyant! At Aqua night club, you get 2 for 1: First, enjoy the raucous and hilarious  (and possibly interactive!) show by the Aquanettes, the club’s amazing drag queen performers. Next, step onto the dance floor and enjoy your own performance as you and your sweetie dance the night away! http://www.aquakeywest.com/ 7


Louie’s Backyard - It may sound like a ribs and beer joint, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. This 25-year-old Key West institution is located in a romantic, oceanside National Historic Landmark building. Make reservations at the upper deck, where you can enjoy wine tasting and fine dining, as well as a breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean. Chef Doug Shook considers the table his canvas, and the locally grown fruits, vegetables and seafood, and grass-fed meats his palette. If you can’t get enough of the experience, head down to the hip Afterdeck Bar for a martini and some celebrity watching. http://www.louiesbackyard.com/
