I lived in KW and have been to more Buffett concerts than I can recall.

I'd chose the visit to KW.

Folks have to realize that some of the KW charm dies every year...the keys ain't the wild and come-as-you-are place that they were even 10 years ago, let alone 20 or 30 years ago. As the conchs die off, the mainland attitude creeps in...

So I always recommend that people visit the keys and KW whenever they can, 'cause it ain't getting any better.

......it ain't getting any better.
The Society for Barefoot Living (www.barefooters.org) published two complaints in the past year of Key West establishments refusing service to barefoot patrons. If you can't drink/dine barefoot anywhere you want in the Keys, but can in central FL, something strange must be happening.

The tailgate party in Orlando is Ok as long as the police don't shut it down like they did in 2003. I don't care much for indoor concerts. So...

Give me The Keys!!!


Enjoy the trip!

You can always listen to the show on radiomargaritaville. Go to the Keys.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

When did this happen? Was just by there in September and was told nothing would happen until 2008 or so. The one in Holiday Isle, right?

No, everything at Holiday Isle is still there. They're talking about Papa Joe's Tiki Bar, across the road from Bud 'n Mary's Marina, just before the bridge, a few miles west of Holiday Isle and Whale Harbor.

Life's a breeze in the Florida Keys - anytime over a JB show! Well, maybe one exception - the very absolute last JB show, if we were ever to really know.

Go to Key West and do something you haven't done before.

I thought the same the first time that I went.
Went back a few years later, now love it and go back as much as I can.
And there's much more to the keys than Key West.
