Happy Hour: Boat House Bar & Grill - Happy hour starts at 4pm and goes until 6:30pm. It includes half off well drinks, house wine, draft beer and an extensive list of small plates. They’re known for their boathouse bread, lobster bisque and margaritas.
Drinks: Galleon Resort Tiki Bar - After happy hour, stroll over to the Galleon Resort Tiki bar to check out one of the best sunset views in town and try a delicious mojito before dinner.
Dinner: Louie’s Backyard - Belly up to the After Deck bar for an oceanfront piña colada that is sure to quench the summer heat, then make your way to their upscale, Caribbean-influenced restaurant that has been one of Key West’s most cherished settings.
Bar Stop: Sloppy Joes - Don’t miss one of Key West’s most infamous bars, Sloppy Joes, offering live music, dancing and a tap-room to keep up with every sports game. This is a spot you and your boys have to stop by to kick off your weekend.
Bar Stop: Green Parrot - Looking for a watering hole to end your night? Look no further than the Green Parrot which has been around since the late 1800s. Green Parrot is also known to have the BEST live music lineup in town. Random Fact: During WWII, this corner bar, formerly known as the Derby Bar, became a bar for the submarine sailors to come to after a long day at work.
Coffee: Ana’s Cafe Cubano (Green St. location) - You may or may not be lagging behind this morning. Ana’s is a coffee spot loved by locals and will be just what you need to kick off day two. Must grabs: iced café con leche and a cuban biscuit.
To Do: Fury Jet Ski Tour - This jet ski tour is a 90-minute tour around the island. It leaves from the Galleon Marina. Don’t be surprised if you spot some dolphins on this must-do trip!

Pre Game: Back at Home - Aloe up and get ready for the night with some beers and vodka sodas at home…and maybe throw in a water or two?
