This is 100% pure, unadulterated awesome. That is all.

Damn Pickle

Margaritaville. Valentine's Day, 2009. This was the first night of our trip to Key West. When we got to Margaritaville we were relegated to the top deck. We were the only people up there most of the time, so we didn't have to worry about our language or shenanigans. This picture was taken about the time Jon and I decided to have a pickle deep throating contest. I have no idea why Rose is making that face, unless Jon just stuck her pickle down his throat.

The food? Meh. The beer? Cold. The margaritas? Blech. The music? Loud. The service? Crap. I may be a Parrothead, but after our two different Key West Margaritaville experiences I'll not go back except for maybe a TShirt. I prefer the Las Vegas Margaritaville. Their Cuban sandwich was incredible.

Key West birthday

I couldn't have asked for a better time.

Early one morning we all met up for our assault on Key West. Our raucous bunch took over Delta Airlines' flight to Atlanta and by the time we got on the plane for Miami we were in full form.

I'll have to do a series of posts about the entire week, blogging them individually, because there is just so much to tell, and just about every picture has its own little story.

My 40th birthday, needless to say, was the birthday of a lifetime. I couldn't ask for a better gang of friends. Key West will never be the same again.
