Saturday Night Full Moon Party at the Hurricane Hole

     This Saturday Night at the Hurricane Hole Bar there is going to be a Full Moon Party from 10:00pm til Midnight.   Loaded with special prices at the bar and great food on a special late night menu.     This is only one of the really fun events that happen regularly at the Hurricane Hole.    Tuesday and Sunday night there is Karaoke with Gary and Debbie, and Friday and Saturday nights you have local musicians to entertain you.   Monday and Friday evenings upstairs there is Texas Hold'em card games with Jeremy as your dealer, really great group of players to make the game fun.

     This is the place that you can find me nearly every evening when I'm in town.   This dockside bar has the vibe of "Old Key West", the waterfront town with all of the local pirates and fishermen hanging around telling their fishing tales and other assorted stories.  I mean where else will you see a beer bottle holder on a cast?   They welcome all visitors and usually keep them coming back  year after year as we party into the evening.   No late night here, the bar and restaurant does close at midnight.   I'd never be able to make it back to work the next morning to write this blog if I stayed even close to midnight.   Temptation is a very bad thing, but once in a while I have been seen there a bit after 9:00 pm.  

     This is the place to book your fishing charter, these guys at the marina will bring you home the catch of the day.   There are virtually every type of charter boat available from flats to deep sea fishing and all of the captains are very knowledgeable of the waters around Key West yielding the big catches.

    Many of the fish plates served by the restaurant are caught the same day and offer a fine dining experience out on the dock enjoying the great food and the nice breezes of the evening.

    The bar offers a good selection of beer, wine, and spirits with bartenders that know how to mix a fine cocktail.  A pretty or friendly smile, depending on who is behind the bar at the time is the finishing touch to make you feel at home and welcome at the "Hole".     For me, this is my equivalent to Hemingway's "El Floridita" in Havana.   I arrive and the bartenders know what I drink and it is served up to me by the time I get the dinghy tied up and snag a seat at or near the bar.  

    If your are local or just visiting, don't forget to stop by Saturday Night for the Full Moon Party at 10:00pm til Midnight.   I might see you there, if Saturday at the Rum Bar doesn't wear me out first.   ;o)
