Key West: Under the (Cuban) Influence

Okay, so I was looking in my 'Draft' folder for some Flashback Friday posts when I found several that never made it up from our Grandma's Gone Wild trip to Key West. Since months have passed since then and I can't remember all the details...I'll keep it short and sweet.

On our second day in Key West, we had lunch in an old cigar warehouse that has been turned into a neat Cuban restaurant.  El Meson de Pepe...check it out.

Doesn't this look like a fun place to visit?

I was told that this was the most photographed sign in the whole place.  Anyone wanna join me?

Checking out the menu...and I will say the food was terrific!

Daddy Rooster was waiting for us when we walked outside.

They still hand roll cigars in the gift shop area.  I picked up a box for Jim.
After lunch we walked through the shops at Mallory Square.

Cool little gift shop

Key West has its own vibe...and I think everyone should visit at least once.  I will try to get the rest of the pictures up one day, even if the commentary is short.  Let's just say "What happens in Key West, stays in Key West!"
