That Cool, New, One-Of-A-Kind Place in Town: Isle Cook!

Published by Miss Prissy on February 4th, 2015 - in Out & About


So I can’t speak for any of you, but I know when I think of my ultimate consumer fantasy,  it involves only a few things: food, wine, and items  that make entertaining easy and fun.  Add cooking classes and wine sipping whilst shopping to the mix and only name comes to mind: Isle Cook.

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year (NOT): Please Don’t Be A Douche During Fantasy Fest

Published by Miss Prissy on October 18th, 2014 - in Out & About
Indeed it is that time of year when some of the locals excitedly dig through their Rubbermaid boxes of costumes (yes, we have THAT MANY).  Sometimes we donate the old ones or swap them between our friends.  Others stay away from the zone altogether while some just lock up their houses and go anywhere else.Tourists have a variety of opinions, too.  Some cannot wait while others take the “OH HELL NO” approach.


Yes, I’m talking about Fantasy Fest or rather, as many of us call it, “Naked Fest” and “GrossFest”.  I’m not going to lie, I myself visited Key West during Fantasy Fest as a tourist.  I can proudly say, I did not act like a douche.  Really, it isn’t that difficult.

Vino’s On Duval:Be Their VIP

Published by Miss Prissy on October 13th, 2014 - in Out & About
opus3 A couple years ago, our friends Val & Clayton of Vino’s On Duval made up VIP cards. “Buy 10 bottles of wine and get 1 free, up to a $35 value”.
10 bottles of wine?  How the hell long does that take?  Hahaha, have you met us?  Week in and week out, our friends were turning in these cards on a pretty regular basis.  (Believe it or not, it doesn’t actually take our crowd very long to complete a card.)
But not us.  Far be it for us to be normal.  Now make no mistake, we had NO problem completing the cards–we just weren’t turning them in for our free bottles.

From the 51 to the 4: Life’s Still A Cabaret!

HB18 So yeah, June is always a great month.  It’s my good friend Judie’s birthday, mine, and my Key West anniversary month.  Admittedly, I’m like a kid when it comes to my birthday.
What’s more, I don’t give a damn who knows how old I am.  Officially “over 50”, as pointed out to me by a co-worker, we shared some tee hees and ha has.  When it comes down to it, what difference does it make?  Sure I’m old enough to be somebody’s grandmother, but you know what?  I’m not!  Trust me, my girlfriends and I aren’t in any knitting circles nor do we cruise the racks for Alfred Dunner.  Age isn’t what it used to be, especially so in The Keys.  I will say though, I can bake a mean chocolate chip cookie 🙂
Because there was a pretty important tournament for Kingbird Charters, The Handsome Captain™ wasn’t going to be with me on my birthday afternoon.  Knowing this, he planned.  Did he ever!  Not only did he plan, he planned with my girlfriends.  It wasn’t a complete surprise, nor was it meant as such.  But I didn’t know everything about it, either.

Brunch at Hot Tin Roof: Wussies Need Not Apply!

HTRBr0 In case anybody’s wondering, No….

I don’t work for the Marketing Department of Noble House Hotels & Resorts (the group that owns Ocean Key Resort, Little Palm Island, and a host of others).


I leave those duties up to the fabulous Carter Mallison, whom I met here for lunch last year.
