Poker Run and Bike Week in Key West Begins

     The 2014 Phil Peterson Poker Run is upon us here in Key West this week.    Thousands of classic and custom motorcycles will be lining Duval Street and all of the trappings of the fun times when motorcycle people get together in Key West every year.   It is time to join all of us down on Duval Street and see these fantastic machines.

     "Known as Phil Peterson’s Poker Run, over 10,000
riders from all over the country enjoy this classic motorcycle ride. Starting in Miami, they rumble their engines all the way to Key West, crossing over the many bridges to our island paradise. During the Phil Peterson Poker Run, the motorcycle riders make 5 stops and draw a card at each stop. At the end of the ride, the person who draws the best hand wins! Plus, if you draw one of the top 10 hands, you get a chance to play one round of Texas Hold ‘Em at Cowboy Bill’s on Duval Street! This Round begins on Saturday Night at 11:00 pm and features a winner takes all – a brand-new Sportster 883 Iron!"

     "In addition to poker game, Key West blocks off 8 blocks of Duval Street for the Phil Peterson Poker Run, where a huge bike show is held in front of Rick’s, Durty Harry’s, and Sloppy Joe’s Bar on Saturday, September 20th. Locals, tourists, and bikers enjoy this mini-Mardi Gras with its carnival atmosphere, music, food, and cold beer!"
