Key West - Garbo's Grill

Ann's latest pastel
Ann completed her most recent pastel, one of a view of a palm tree looking up into the sky. She's had great success this year compared to previous years in doing serious painting. It takes a block of time without interruptions to get the creative juices flowing. With the extra month in Key West this year, she's had the time.

Nice chopper
I took a walk this morning and saw a custom chopper that looked pretty good. It was parked outside of the Raw Bar, nice paint job.

The food wagon is at the left
We had heard so much about Garbo's Grill that we just had to try it. It's been featured on the Foot Network in the section on roadside diners and was one of only 25 restaurants invited to compete in the best burger cookoff  in Miami, Florida. Garbo's Grill is listed as one of the 100 highest rated restaurants in US per the Tripadvisor and yet it's a food wagon parked behind Grunt's Bar.
The Umami Burger - fantastic!
Ann had the fish taco but I had the 1/2 pound Umami burger with Angus ground beef, applewood bacon, heirloom tomato and Boars Head chipotle gouda, it was fantastic and cost only $9. We are sure to go back and try the rest of the menu. For drinks we had a draft Belgium beer for $3 each, very reasonable dinner!

It's still warm, 78 outside so we have the A/C going to cool off the main cabin and also lower the humidity. Summer is coming in Key West but it still rarely gets above 81 down so far. We decide what to do day to day, what better way to plan?
