Pie In The Sky
Key West Key Lime Festival

Key West’s 4th of July celebration takes on a whole new twist during the 6th Annual Key Lime Festival.
The Florida Keys’ sweetest treat will be in the “limelight” from Saturday, June 30 through Wednesday, July 4 when Key Lime aficionados can salute the island chain’s signature treat.
The festival, which was conceived by Keys’ author and baker David Sloan, who penned “The Key West Key Lime Pie Cookbook,” includes five full days of lip-smacking culinary events.
Things kick off on Saturday, June 30 with a Key Lime Pie Drop (a wacky test of gravity’s effects on the creamy pie) and a Sip & Stroll where you can sample Key lime martinis, margaritas and other limey libations at selected local watering holes and vote for your favorite.
The long holiday celebration also includes the Key Lime Pie Hop, a leisurely “moveable feast” where lime lovers can stroll to multiple locations to savor variations on the famed dessert; Key Lime Rum samplings and tours at Key West’s First Legal Rum Distillery; Key lime cooking lessons and more.
But the festival’s undisputed annual highlight is the Mile-High Key Lime Pie Eatin’ Contest set for Wednesday, July 4, at the Ocean Key Resort. Contestants must attempt to devour an entire 9” pie, topped with mounds of whipped cream, without using their hands — while trying to outpace their rivals. Doors open at 10am and the contest begins at 11am.

Oct – July Christopher Peterson’s Eyecons

Key West: Often compared to the legendary Jim Baily, master of impersonations, Christopher Peterson is, without a doubt, one of North America’s foremost female impersonators – both visually and vocally. His hit show, EYECONS, is one of the hottest tickets in town and you’ll be totally amazed by the way he transforms himself into more than a dozen famous women right before your very eyes with the help of his “magic closet.” Catch him in the Crystal Room Cabaret at La Te Da, 1125 Duval St., Key West. Tickets and info: 305-296-6706; lateda.com.

Oct – July Randy Roberts Live!

Key West: Highly acclaimed entertainer, seen on America’s Got Talent, Randy Roberts shines in this live, multi-media tribute to some of the world’s most beloved performers. His uncanny impersonations of Cher and Better Midler are spot-on and he’ll have you rolling in the aisles when he performs a titillating strip tease as the bawdy Gypsy Lee Rose. But nothing compares to Roberts’ own self-created character which can only be described as Ann-Margaret, Liza Minnelli and Joan Rivers all rolled into one powerhouse performer. Catch this amazing show at La Te Da’s Crystal Room Cabaret, 1125 Duval St., Key West. Tickets and info: 305-296-6706; lateda.com.

For every edition we print, DESTINATION Florida Keys & Key West will plant a correlating number of Ponderosa Pines in South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Native American Indian Reservation. Encompassing 3,468.85 square miles, and larger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined, it is the eighth largest reservation in the US.

As a global forestry partner with the international Print Relief initiative, we are committed to converting our paper footprint into actual trees.

Greening the landscape to combat climate change, land rights issue and poverty, while developing income opportunities are paramount to the Pine Ridge Project. With Print Relief, resources borrowed from the earth can be returned and multiplied after use. Through their verified reforestation process, there is a 100% net survival of the trees we plant.

Thanks for your support as we now help to reforest the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation…
one print job at a time.
