434--Key West: A Pub Stroll (or the Duval Crawl)

cherie writes: Visiting twelve bars in twelve tours takes dedication (and a strong liver.) But Karem and I were determined to see all the best bars in Key West in one day. Of course, we missed a few, as there are more than a dozen great spots on this 2x4 island…but here’s a list of the bars I chose for our Key West Pub Crawl: Hogfish, Schooner Wharf, Alonzo’s, Captain Tony’s, Sloppy Joe’s, Kelly’s, La Concha Hotel, the Bull, the Whistle, the Garden of Eden, Cowboy Bills, and Virgilio’s.

During our day of debauchery, we listened to live music, got behind more than one bar, met a few funky locals, watched the sunset, saw a comedy show, and Karem finished the night off by riding a mechanical bull. We averaged one drink an hour, drank lots of water, and didn’t have a hangover the next day.

Karem holds up one finger to sybolize the first drink of the day.  It's not quite 5 o'clock yet, but then...we have a lot of bars to cover in the next 12 hours.

Our second drink is one of my favorite's in Key West--the Key Lime Martini at Alonzo's (if you go between 4 and 6:30, it's half price.)

Alonzo's Key Lime Martini was too good. Now it's time to try Alonzo's mohito. (Note to self: do not consume shellfish during a bar crawl.)

Are we counting the bars or the drinks...we're not sure, so we give this next shot a 4 1/2.  (That's a real dead guy behind the bar at Captain Tony's.)
