Those of you who know me know that I started the Kokomo Joe’s Off Duval Bar Crawl several years ago. It was a very popular tourist pub crawl taking people off the main tourist strip of Duval Street to some of the best bars in Key West. We earned a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence (5 dots) two years in a row of the three years in business. I chose to close it down for a number of reasons, mostly I felt that for me it had run it’s course and it was time to move on. The pub crawl was a lot of fun and it enabled me to meet people from all over in a fun environment. We celebrated birthdays, marriages, divorces, and a lot of lifes moments. I am now moving on to new adventures.
I have had a long love of Key West and the bar business. Anyone who has been around me much knows I have a goal of owning a bar. I will make it happen. I have been to bartending school, I have been certified by BarSmarts Advanced. I am a member of the U.S. Bartenders Guild and continue my learning and knowledge by attending seminars, reading books and staying current on industry trends and developments. I love making “craft” cocktails. I am currently bartending on the Key West Cocktail Cruise.
Thank you to all of my Very Important Party Animals who pub crawled with us in past years. Stay tuned here to see where I end up next. I will post some fun Key West stuff too. I am hoping to turn this page into one that you will be able to book different Key West tours. It is a difficult process as I am not very tech savy but am learning how to do it on my own.
Thanks for reading and being loyal Party Animals,
