Calb Us Totay!Find us online at OFF OFF DUVALThe most traveled and visible street in Key West is only the beginning, the surface, of what the town has to offer. Ask the locals about their favorite spots, stroll through quiet neighborhoods or down alleyways off Duval and youll begin to dive deeper into the quieter, more diverse and less readily apparent offerings. Here are eight spots you might not see at first glance. Better than Sex, 926 Simonton St. 305-296-8102; A great place for couples. Swing by this dessert-only, adults-only restaurant late in the evening. Indulge your senses with chocolate dipped wine glasses and cheeky, homemade desserts and beverages such as an Ephemere Apple Spiced Ale in a tall beer glass with a signature caramel rim-job. Lick it good. Mellow Caf and Gastro Pub, 1605 Roosevelt Blvd. 305-745-3874; www. Near the water in Old Town Key West, the caf is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers unique island fare with a mellow atmosphere to match. The menu items are crafted with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and include a fresh catch, Havana roasted pork, romaine leaf plates and caramelized banana chocolate tacos. Drink options include a large selection of craft beers, 11 rotating tap beers, wine, house-made sangria and champagne cocktails. They have a great happy hour daily from 5-7 p.m., and delivery is available. Cuban Coffee Queen, 284 Margaret St. 305-292-4747; The strong Cuban coffee at this hole in the wall is also rich in Key West heritage. A caf con leche paired with a classic Cuban sandwich or some Havana rice and beans will keep you going long into a Key West night. Firefly, 223 Petronia St. 305-8490104; Being that Key West is home to the southernmost point of the continental United States, its fitting that the island is home to a Southern-inspired restaurant. Fireflys plantation-style look and its menu give it the most down-home feel of any culinary experience on the island. The shrimp and grits, fried chicken and bacon-wrapped meatloaf are a few fan favorites. Key West Island Bookstore, 513 Fleming St.; 305-294-2904. This decades-old boutique bookstore offers a surprisingly varied wealth of current and used titles, from bestsellers to rare titles. Often open late, its an inviting place to browse the crowded stacks. La Rubia Fine Hats, 510 Fleming St. 305-296-6059; www.larubiakeywest. com. This is the Florida Keys only importer of authentic Panama hats. The owners developed the boutique to carry on the centuries-old tradition of hand weaving hats (which come from Ecuador, not Panama, by the way). There are styles for men and women in a wide array of colors and weaves. Theres also a nice selection of wearable fair trade crafts such as jewelry, ikat wraps and shigra bags. Little Pearl, 632 Olivia St. 305-2044762; Nestled in the heart of Old Town Key West and away from the bustling downtown streets sits this excellent spot for fresh local catch and innovative cuisine with a tropical twist. Its new and its hot. Reservations are required. Nancy Forresters Secret Garden, 518 Elizabeth St. 305-294-0015; Ms. Forrester has a secret, and its not her garden, per se: Its what she keeps there. The longtime environmentalist has been caring for orphaned parrots for more than 30 years. She invites the public to meet them, take pictures, hold them and listen as she educates the community about her fine feathered friends.

A6 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY KEY WEST Serving Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner1405 Duval Street, Key West // #somolife FL WEEKLY Food and Beverage Dinner Only20% offIts namesake never saw it, but Audubon House still worth a look BY MAXINE LOPEZ-KEOUGHFlorida Weekly Correspondent Its midway through the tour of Key Wests stunningly pretty Audubon House and Tropical Gardens that the truth comes out: John James Audubonfamed naturalist painter, whose lifelike paintings of bird portraits line the walls of the museumnever actually lived in the Audubon House. But dont let this spoiler keep you from visiting; indeed, a visit to the Audubon House offers so much beauty, charm and historical interest, youll be left feeling only that it was Audubons loss that he was never able to inhabit such a magical place. Amassing a fortune from treasure gathered from the ruins of shipwrecks might seem like a job description for a storybook pirate, but in 19th century Key West, it was a lucrative and respectable way to make a living. The busy passage between the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf Coast was a dangerous place for ships to sail, and each year saw tens of boats wrecked on offshore reefs during the frequent storms that pummeled the area. Finders Keepers might not mean much today, but for those in the wrecking industry of Key West, it was law. When a ship ran aground, the first man to reach the boat became the wreck master, whoafter saving the crew and passengers, if possibledirected the salvaging of the ship and its cargo. Back on land, the recovered haul was auctioned off, with the wreck master taking the largest cut of the profits. It was a dangerous, highly competitive and regulated industry, the spoils of which helped solidify Key West as the richest city in the country by the mid1800s. For Captain John Huling Geiger, a maritime pilot whose ship wrecking success had made him one of the richest men in the Florida Keys, such wealth demanded a home of appropriate grandeur. In 1846, after the rest of the island was mostly flattened in a hurricane, Geiger chose a prominent lot on which to build his familys new homea lavish American Classic Revival mansion of tropical wood at the intersection of Green and Whitehead streets, with an unobstructed view of the ocean (and any new potential ship wrecks.) It was a grand, busy estate encompassing 6 acres, home to Geiger, his wife, his children, and a number of slaves who, in addition to domestic chores, were made to assist in the wrecking business that fueled Geigers wealth. For over a century, Geigers home remained in the familys possession, until Geigers great-grandson, Capt. William Bradford Smith, took up residence. Smith, a Key West Harbor pilot, lived in hermitlike seclusion without indoor plumbing, electricity, or cooking facilities, and by the time of his death in 1956, the house had fallen into ruin. Slated for demolition, it was saved in 1958 by Mitchell and Frances Wolfson, who were compelled to purchase the property after hearing it was destined to become a gas station. The Wolfsons had heard the same folklore that speculated James Audubon might have conceived many of his bird portraits during a visit to the gardens of Dr. Benjamin Strobel, whose home was located on the property where the Geiger family mansion would later be constructed. The Wolfsons began a two-year process of painstaking renovation, the first historical renovation of its kind in Key West, at the end of which marked the rechristening of the Geiger home as The Audubon House Museum. They filled the house with antiques, including many items from the Geiger family, as well as numerous original hand-colored lithographs by Audubon. Today, Key West is known for having one of the most colorful and well-protected historical districts in the United States, with the highest density of historic frame buildings in the nation. Yet few who visit know that it was the Wolfsons renovation of the Audubon House that began this now priceless movement to protect and preserve the islands oldest architecture. To this day, the property is cared for through the Mitchell Wolfson Trust, and remains a reputable dealer of original Audubon work. The threestory home is filled with precious antiquities and, of course, with Audubons work, as well as information about the artists life and career. An acre of lush tropical gardens surrounds the home, featuring hundreds of orchids, a koi pond, and a replica of the propertys original 1850s outdoor kitchen building. Visitors are encouraged to wind their way through the quiet brick pathways, taking note of the rare tropical plants (carefully labeled for those without extensive botanical knowledge) and view the medicinal and herb garden, a staple of 19th century upscale homes. Though the museum and its grounds are located in the bustling downtown district, once inside the protective foliage of the grounds, the sights and sounds of the outside world are muffled. Visitors are transported back in time, to an island without tour buses or tee-shirt shops, where fame and fortune awaited any man brave enough to watch the sea for a wrecked ship, and beat his fellow wreckers to the prize.

A10 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY KEY WEST isnt quite enough. Which is why this weekends Key West Film Festival, running through Sunday, Nov. 18, is the solution to all of our fugitive fantasies. The Key West Film Festival is the brainchild of Brooke Christian, who had been cooking up a plan to quit his job and move to a tropical island for a while, fueled by years of vacationing in Key West to visit his father, a longtime resident. To justify his fugue, he developed a crazy, artsy plan the kind of plan that has attracted dreamers and those fleeing the cold to Key West for decades: Christian decided to start a film festival in the Southernmost town. This year, as a result of his optimism and doggedness, the Key West Film Festival will celebrate its seventh birthday, with a lineup of star-studded films, parties, panel discussions, awards ceremonies and celebrity appearances. The schedule is packed, beginning with a 6 p.m. Nov. 14 opening night showing of Alfonso Cuarons (yes, the two-time Oscar winner, including for Best Director; the Key West Film Festival has garnered major clout in the film business over its very short life span) Roma at the San Carlos Institute, presented by Emily Yoshida of New York Magazine and and followed by a discussion with Yoshida and Justin Chang of the Los Angeles Times. More than 30 scheduled films will follow, along with dozens of cultural events spread across the festivals five-day run. It seems impossible now, but seven years ago, Christian had no idea he would one day be lauded as the founder and chairman of such a successful event. He wasnt even sure it was financially feasible. From one angle, the plan had legs: Key West was an artsy tourist town, so why wouldnt people travel to paradise to watch movies? On the other hand, Key West was known as an extraordinarily expensive place to buy a sandwich, never mind start a business, and the towns schedule of special events was already oversaturated. Key West has so many different sorts of festivals, theres literally almost a festival every single week, laughs Christian. Its well known that competing for community and tourist attention in a town like Key West can leave even the savviest businessmen penniless. It was, strangely, the French embassy that convinced him to risk everything. While working as vice president of a global translation services company in Washington, Christian learned that nearby Richmond, Va., was hosting a film festival a French one, to be specific. Why would a city almost 4,000 miles away from the land of macarons, berets and champagne host such a specific, esoteric event, one almost guaranteed to have a list of expenses larger than the size of Richmonds erudite Francophile population? It turned out the French Embassy was providing a stipend, and Christian took this news as a kind of challenge: if Richmond could secure enough funding to make a French film festival financially viable, surely, he could figure out a way to bring a film festival to South Floridas creative hub. Although the festival has grown to include some serious cinematic heavy hitters, there is still a local focus to the event. Not only will the film festival highlight films made by professional Florida filmmakers, but student shorts from the Sunshine State will also get their turn on the big screen at The Studios of Key West at 9 p.m. Nov. 15. A big part of the reason the festival was started was to encourage filmmaking in the state of Florida, Christian explains. Floridian students arent the only ones slated to win big at this years festival: this year costume designer Alexandra Byrne, who received an Academy Award for Best Costume Design for Elizabeth: The Golden Age in 2007 and who has designed costumes for films as diverse as Hamlet and Guardians of the Galaxy, has been singled out for the third annual Golden Key for Costume Design as part of the festivals Costume Design Focus program a perfect fit for Key Wests creative masquerade-loving community, notes Director of Programming Michael Tuckman. Part of the drive to recognize artistry in the field of costume design is to highlight the importance of costuming in transporting viewers outside of their day-to-day lives. Tuckman says, As Key West and other coastal communities continue to recover from these devastating storms, movies remain an integral and important part of bringing communities together. The role of a costume designer, often so overlooked, literally creates the fabric of the characters on screen who take us to other worlds. Often overlooked at film festivals in favor of the more traditional categories of honoring directors, actors and scriptwriters, the Key West festivals choice to focus on costume design signals an intuitive connection between the team behind the festival and the surrounding community it serves, summed up perfectly in the film festivals mission statement to showcase films that capture Key Wests essence: Creativity, Diversity, Sustainability, and Beauty. Though there are Floridians aplenty amidst the lineup of award recipients, scholarship applicants, actors and filmmakers on this years festival schedule, Christian is adamant that the festival contains as many categories as possible, FILM FESTFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOAlan Cumming at a previous Key West Film Festival.

The Friday afternoon Critics Panel at General Horseplay will provide festivalgoers with valuable insights on the best films of the year, early Oscar predictions and the general state of film criticism in our continually evolving media landscape, straight from the mouths of seven prominent film critics and filmmakers. For Tuckman, this years festival is one of the best yet. We couldnt be more excited about this years lineup, he says. From having the chance to share Alfonso Cuarons masterpiece on the big screen in all of its grandeur, to serving as a homecoming for Floridas favorite filmmaking son Barry Jenkins and his intimate and powerful film, to highlighting impactful, thoughtful, entertaining, comedic, dramatic and downright incredible films from countries far and wide to communities in our own backyard, the films of the Key West Film Festival 2018 represent our strongest lineup yet. But when asked to pick a favorite from this years list of film venues, Christian stalls. When pressed, he admits that the acoustics in the San Carlos, for a big film, are pretty tough to beat, but honestly its like asking someone to pick their favorite child. Hes not kidding: there are events scheduled to take place in the refreshingly air-conditioned Tropic Cinema, the ever-evolving Key West Theater and the Studios of Key West. Films vary in their appropriateness for children, although Christian and his team have made sure that this years festival has something for everyone. This years events range in price; some are free, while most others hover between $12 and $15. Saturdays 8:30 p.m. awards ceremony will cost you $100, while all-week and weekend passes are also available to those whod like the freedom to attend as many events as possible.

CNTAfr US! from Fery Teminal, Airpt FRE SHUTLKey Wests oldest yoga studio launches new name, new branding, and extends Irma recovery phase discounts SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTo celebrate its expanded programs and mission, the former Bikram Yoga studio at 927 White Street, Key West, has a fresh new name, logo and offerings for the community. The oldest continually running yoga school in Key West is now called Yoga Key. Yoga Key is deeply committed to the health and well-being of the Keys community, said studio owner, operator and instructor Danny Sine. Following Hurricane Irma, we made the decision to significantly roll back our package prices to assist those impacted with access to the school and support of its teachers and members. As we have witnessed the emotional impact that has continued to affect our community, we made the decision to continue the discounts into the new year. In addition to the hot 6&2 style yoga that the school has offered since 1985, recent additions include warm yin yoga, sound therapy, core 40, a series of unique pop-up classes, customized private and group sessions, and a popular Monday evening kids and parents class. Yoga Key is an integrative school bridging the gap between classic and modern hatha yoga, said assistant director Lauren Dean, a certified USA Yoga Coach, international teacher, educator and writer. We specialize in the intersections between yin and yang yoga, which, when combined with vibrational sound, offer pathways to balance, heal and harmonize body and mind. We are very excited about Yoga Keys mission and vision, says Sine. This November marks my tenth year teaching therapeutic hatha yoga and witnessing the healing journeys of all kinds of people, from 1 to 90 years old, whose testimonials include recovering from emotional and physical injury, addiction, eating disorders, stress and anxiety. I remain in gratitude for our wonderfully supportive community as we focus on the present to build our future. Danny Sine leads a class through cobra pose at his Yoga Key studio on White Street. The former Bikram Key West school of yoga has been renamed and rebranded to reflect the studios expanded programs and mission. Yoga Key assistant director Lauren Dean, a certified USA Yoga Coach, and studio owner, operator and instructor Danny Sines, stand in front of the newly renamed and rebranded yoga school at 927 White St. that was formerly Bikram Yoga Key West. 305-396-7450 PIES Thanksgiving Morning Only


A14 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 15-21, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY KEY WESTattracted the attention of international sand art critics after debuting a record breaking 52-foot tall sculpture for a competition near Amsterdam. Two years later, the Guinness Book of World Records took notice, awarding her 68-foot 6-inch piece the honor of Tallest in the Field. Having conquered Europe, Broek headed west in 2002, and in addition to finding fame and fortune managed to turn competition into collaboration when romance bloomed between her and a competing carver, Chris Guinto. Broek now works full time for her corporate and wedding-based sand sculpting clientele through her company Just Sand and Water (incidentally, her company is such hot stuff that she was profiled in The New York Times as one of the go-to companies for those planning a destination wedding in Key West) and it was Broek who, after a career spent getting her hands dirty in competitions across the globe, began dreaming about creating her own event, one that would bring together master sculptors from across the globe to compete on the sunny island she has called home since 2005. Nine years of careful planning and building up the courage to actually believe I could put it all together and make it happen resulted in the now hugely successful International Sand Art Competition, which will celebrate its fourth anniversary here in Key West from Nov. 21-25 on the sandy shores of the historic Casa Marina Resort. Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, sculptors from St. Louis, the Czech Republic, Singapore, Ireland, California, Canada and Key West will commence construction of their sculptures. Contrary to popular belief, the use of adhesives or electric tools of any kind are strictly prohibited in most professional sand sculpture; artists must create the base for their sculpture solely out of compacted sand. First, sand and water are mixed and poured into a series of forms, usually made out of rigid plastic (picture an updated version of those colorful sandcastle molds you used to build with as a kid). After enough water has drained from the forms, they are unmolded to reveal tightly packed blocks of sand. Over four days, using trowels, paint knives, small wooden dowels and tiny brushes, the competitions artists attempt to coax a masterpiece from the enormous bricks and cylinders they have fabricated out of silky beach sand an estimated 17,500 pounds in total per artist. The sculptures that emerge are not required to adhere to any specific theme or size, but are guaranteed to elicit the same reaction from passers by unfamiliar with the art form: Wait, those are just made of sand? This years competition has gone to great lengths to ensure that sand sculpting novices enjoy themselves as much as the pros, with a special treasure dig sponsored by the Key West Art & Historical Society set for 2-3 p.m. Friday (prizes include artwork, water sports adventures, spa services and gift certificates to Key West restaurants and more), and a dedicated amateur sculpting area where kids and adults can try their hand at sand sculpting. The main attractions of the event, however, are the seven artists who will lovingly mold their allotted sand into showstopping creations over the course of the event: Dan Belcher from St. Louis, Mo. (Official Event Sculptor of the 2016 competition); Jakub Zimacek of the Czech Republic, competing in America for the first time in his sand sculpting career; JOOHeng Tran of Singapore; Fergus Mulvaney of Ireland, who has won more awards than we have space to print; Morgan Rudluff of San Francisco; Abe Waterman from PEI, Canada, who specializes in ephemeral mediums; and husband/ wife duo Adam Russell and Kelly Lever of Key West, the dynamic forces behind Key West Pottery. Sculptor Deborah Barrett-Cutulle from Boston has been tapped for this years Official Event Sculptor spot. BarrettCutulles task is an important one: she is responsible for sculpting the centerpiece for the competitions Treasure Dig, a Key West Art and Historical Society-sponsored event, during which children are encouraged to dig for treasure supposedly left for them by none other than Henry Flagler. Barrett-Cutulle will also carve the logos of each participating sponsor into the piece without the use of molds or templates. In the world of sand sculpting there is a high level of respect for those who can free-hand a logo, explains Broek, who attributes the success of the competition, and of the art form it celebrates, to the presence of its medium across the world and throughout time. Sand is successful due to the universality of its medium, she explains. It is one of the few art forms that crosses all boundaries, just like music. You can find some form of sand art in every culture. And on an island whose reputation for debauchery can sometimes drown out its otherwise wholesome attractions, Broek has done a masterful job of creating an event that, while not explicitly billed as a family festival, is nevertheless an obvious choice for those looking to satisfy a range of appetites beyond the cocktail list. (Sand art) can be enjoyed by everyone, young and old, says Broek, who, after years of installing her own work on the Casa Marinas beach for wedding guests and conference attendees, seems eager to allow newcomers the chance to make a name for themselves using the same sand with which she has built a successful company. Many people do not realize, she explains how exhausting and sometimes tedious the slow-paced art form can be for sculptors. The public expresses their awe after the sculptures are completed: How did they do it? Some are looking for an easy way out, a trick explaining how these sculptures came to be, Broek says. The truth, she says, is less mysterious, but more impressive. The fact is, it takes a lot of hard work, talent and patience to get these sculptures to be the way they are. The full schedule can be found at www. Broek hopes visitors will swing by the beach throughout the competition to watch the works in progress. Viewing is free to the public.
