Key West’s oldest restaurant. In fact, the oldest restaurant in Florida. One hundred twelve years old
The new owners one of Key West’s most likeable couples. Danny and Maura Hughes.
They are familiar with the restaurant business. They are the owners of Two Friends Patio Restaurant on Front Street.
Danny says, “We don’t see ourselves as the new owners of Pepe’s, but rather as custodians of the legend…..The essence of Pepe’s will not change on our watch. Why would we mess with a 112 year old lineage that already works?”
Shelley McInnis now bears the title of “former owner” of Pepe’s.
I know Shelley from bocce. A hell of a bocce player! One of the best!
Shelley started working at Pepe’s in 1983. She bought the restaurant in 2015. Her time has arrived to sit back and relax.
I wish Danny and Maura great success.
How many times a year do we hear: “Where are you Bum Farto?”
We still don’t know. However Key West will be aware November 9 and 11. Bum Farto The Musical will be performed at the Key West Theater.
Got to be a winner! Bum’s story a winner!
It was time to get out again yesterday. A quiet drive late afternoon to Geiger Key. Enjoyed the sunday barbecue ribs.
Guaranteed I will be out today. A visit with Dr. Norris my primary care physician at 1.
What else today, I don’t know.
Vanity Fair’s Bess Levin published another interesting article on October 29: “The Lawyer Defending Texas’ Abortion Ban Is As Evil As You’d Expect.”
The man is Jonathan Miller. His thoughts hard to swallow. Way out.
Miller appears to be anti-woman. He has said women should just stop having sex if they don’t want to deal with unwanted pregnancies.
Levin also reported Miller believes the overturning of Roe v. Wade will provide women with an opportunity to change their “whoring ways.”
An informative article published in this morning’s New York Times: “Covid Gets Even Redder.” The thrust of the article being “partisan deaths” play a big part.
The article was based on a review of each and every U.S. county.
At the end of 2000, the counties were equally divided red and blue. Then the vaccine became available in large numbers. The vaccine proved effective.
The gap between red and blue counties quickly emerged. Last month alone, the gap revealed red county deaths grew faster than the blue. More so than in any previous time.
Proof once again that the vaccine does work. When will all Americans learn?
Enjoy your day!
