431--Key West: St. Patrick's Day Bar Stroll
@ CherieSpotting     Mar 16 2009 - 02:06 PST
cherie writes: The 31st Annual St. Patrick’s Day Bar Stroll happened in Key West on March 14th. Leave it to Conchs (the name locals call themselves) to stretch out an Irish holiday for three days.

The St. Patrick’s Day Bar Stroll was organized by founder Rick Dostal. Every year 800 people in green, put on a t-shirt and enjoy a beer at nine Key West bars. This year the t-shirts were designed by Kevin Quon and they came in one size—extra large. So the ladies got creative and cut up their shirts into sexy tanks and dresses. I made my t-shirt a skirt.

During the stroll down Duval Street, some pole danced at Zu while others (like me) rode the mechanical bull at Cowboy Bills.
