Earlier in the year, my girlfriends and I were all about heading to Europe for two weeks but that trip is being delayed slightly so we started to throw out other destinations for a summer getaway.Mexico for an all-inclusive? Nah – we’ve been there, done that.
Sonoma for a wine tour? Great idea – but we’ll save that for fall.
Key West? Sure – why not!?!
Out of the gate, we knew Key West was going to be a blast because we had a local as our tour guide, my cousin Josie, to take us around the island and it was coincidentally Lobsterfest, which was something we definitely didn’t plan for but it proved to be an awesome bonus!

Post dinner, we walked past Duval and decided to head into Sloppy Joe’s for a few beverages, listen to the band and see what was in store for us the next night because we knew we would end up there. Of course, upon entry, we met some colorful people and danced to a few 80s songs before heading home.
Between recommendations from friends, Twitter and the locals, we had indirectly mapped out where we would be eating the whole trip so before what will be lovingly called “summer break 2012” was to commence, we went to Amigos Tortilla Bar for Pacifico, fish and lobster tacos for dinner before my cousin and her friend met up with us on crazy Duval street.
At this point, I blame the Lobsterfest bar crawl we signed up for because we all decided, especially me, to sip vodka sodas like they were water – I also blame the ridiculous heat. Let’s just say it made for an interesting night of hilarious meet and greets with people and an even more interesting morning filled with lots of advil and water. It was vacation, right?!?

We chose two of their top rated desserts and glasses of prosecco with lavender infused honey dripping down the glass. And honestly, if you go, I don’t think you can go wrong with ANYTHING you order. Plus, if you need an excuse to get the conversation flowing, they offer sex books and hilarious question cards, which left us cackling and smacking the table because we were laughing so hard in between each of our answers.
Up next – the best Sunday Funday on the water ever in my whole entire life and a bike tour of the island.
