Last week I shared some photos of good old fashioned fun on my birthday trip to Key West, fishing, pool jumping, dancing...
What makes Key West so fun is the eclectic mix of tourists and residents who are there to have fun. On a super rainy day of bar hopping from one pool table, dart board, and tv screen to another, we stumbled upon one of the highlights of our trip. The annual Key West Drag Races!
Plopped in the middle of Duval Street was an obstacle course and many contestants ready to win it all.
Here is one of my favorite "queens" I named, TuTu Man. Here he is in all his blond wig, full beard, pink tutu, and Dorothy shoes glory:
Here are a few queens waiting to run:

Aside from drag queens, we also found this little treasure just down the street from our hotel, Bo's Fish Wagon:
Looking like a giant pile of rubbish from the outside, inside is an amazing little spot for the best grouper sandwich in Key West! Bo sold fish sandwiches on Duval street from this old truck you see rusting into the decor. 25 years later, he has a thriving business! Worth a visit for lunch or dinner, and don't miss Friday Night Jams for music and dancing. This was a great find this trip.
So, that's my Key West wrap up!
