"Key West, Florida Keys, 2009"

One of Hemingway's haunts in Key West, "Cap't Tony's." 

When the rent on this place went up in 1937, about 25 cents worth, Capt. Tony decided to move to another place, "Sloppy Joe's Tavern," just up the street.  Hemingway helped him move and both places thrive still today.  My favorite was "Sloppy Joe's" with all the open air doors and the loud music, and the loud crowd, and the clinking of the glasses, and the rum and cokes, and, and, and.....  Wish I were there now.
