The Rum Bar becomes Official

     This evening at 5:30 the plaque proclaiming the Speakeasy Inn and Rum Bar building a historic landmark takes place.     This is a special honor for all of the people who have been a part of this colorful structure since it was first built in circa 1889.        In a previous article, I covered much of the history of this unique building ( 8 February, 2011), today is the day that we celebrate it's history.

     If you happen to be in the Key West area today , stop by the Speakeasy Inn and the Rum Bar and celebrate the plaque being presented at that time.     If you haven't seen the building or don't know anything about the history, you will have a chance to hear about it and have a cocktail or three in the tradition of Raul's speakeasy (The Florence Club).     Looking forward to seeing many of you and talking with you this afternoon.     ;o)
