Paul Watler, longtime bartender at the Hurricane Hole, celebrated his final night as a bartender with a huge party last night. Paul has served our cocktails and beers in the evenings for the past six years, but starting today is he a fisherman full time. Paul is an extraordinary man with many skills and the ability to work with people and accomplish whatever he sets his mind to do.
He arrived at the Hurricane Hole six years ago as a bar back for Patty Wacker, one of Key Wests most well-known bartenders, and a year later he was carrying the shifts that were made available when Patty moved on. He has become a great friend and always a pleasure to see when he is behind the bar.
Best wishes and may things work out all for the best for you and your family. This hurricane Hole will recover, but it will never be the same without Paul behind the bar, but you be safe and enjoy your new world. ;o)
