Key West - Cuban Restaurant and a sunset at Mallory Square


Irish singers are in short supply in Key West on St Patrick’s Day.
This guy dressed the part but didn’t play (or know) any Irish songs

The Waterfront Brewery always hosts a party atop their roof deck on St Patrick’s Day with beer, entertainment, and free tee-shirts. Naturally, we had to stop by. I don’t know why they don’t use it more often, it’s a great venue with a view of the harbor. We had a beer to celebrate and returned to Fleetwing. 

Chickens roamed above at the restaurant, hence the covers above 

The kids spent the day at Ft Zachary Taylor at the beach there since it was sunny all day and warm. I think it’s the best beach in Key West. Some of the others are protected more by reefs which is fine but there’s no surf. The fort is always fun to explore too and in some years they have Revolutionary war re-enactments. 

Not many clouds but a good view of the sun

Next on our busy agenda was dinner at El Meson De Pepe’s Restaurant. I would also highly recommend a night out there too. One thing you never have to worry about are crowds from cruise ships that may dock at Key West. The passengers are all on a meal plan and seldom eat out. Besides, most of the ships leave around 5:30 or so anyway. The restaurant is located in Mallory Square so it’s a one minute walk to see the sunset.
