After walking up Duval at 9am (and, yes, it was already humid and HOT this early in the morning), we stopped in for donuts at this cute place called...what else... Glazed Donuts. It was right next to our B&B and we could smell the donuts from the street. You could see them making them in the window... YUM!
The menu! I got a Key Lime donut for the husband and a chocolate one from myself.
After a morning nap (how glorious!), we headed out to Caroline's Cafe for lunch.
Both Jen & I had visited this place on previous trips before and knew we had to make this a MUST DO. It's on Duval and has picnic tables shaded by trees...and some pretty amazing food. I've been here twice now and I've gotten the same thing each time--the shrimp & bacon club. Holy delicious. A giant sandwich and fries for under $10 in Key West... I'll take it.
Though, I must say... I was totally jealous of Jen's drink.
She stopped for, I think it was a "Sweet tarts" drink at Fat Tuesdays. The mug lit up! Jealous.
We shopped, crashed a pool, and then got ready for the wedding party! It was surely a jam packed day.
The wedding party was at a restaurant in Bahama Village called The Colombian Grace. It is a cute two story building and we were lucky enough to have the entire top floor. Our seats were outside on the patio and inside had all the fun stuff--guestbook, cake, bar, etc.
Jen & Mike
Me & the husband...and his trident. They sell them at the dollar store. He was a fan.
I, on the other hand, had a princess wand... ;)
And, now, scenes from the wedding party!
A personalized menu for us
The bar and some of the beer choices
Guestbook! Basically she had laid out pages for us to write notes on and there was a Fujifilm instax camera for us to snap pictures to accompany our notes! Here are some of our pictures developing.
She picked good colors for a KW party!
The cake and cupcakes
They were Key Lime...and DELICIOUS
With the lovely bride all done up!
Time for food!
I had chicken and mashed potatoes in a white wine sauce...
...and Scott had a grouper casserole. It was more like a cheesy fishy soup. It smelled good at least.
The trident was a hit
The view from the patio
Overall, it was a great party. The restaurant seemed to be accommodating and it was nice to have our own private area!
After we wrapped up at this restaurant, we headed to Duval again! This time, we stopped at Rick's. We went to an upstairs club that was playing some good old school booty music. Everyone enjoyed $10 fish bowls and I enjoyed the show! We had disposable cameras that the bride gave us in her Out of Town Bags so we spent the night trying to use those up...so no digitals of this night! ;)
I was out until about 1am. I was proud of myself!
