I happened to be in Key West right smack in the middle of Spring Break. Now, Key West is not a big Spring Break destination, but the character of the town changes depending on whether a cruise ship has brought a bunch of camera-toting tourists or whether college students are cutting loose, or it's Fantasy Fest.
I had been to Garden of Eden during the daytime before, when it is laid back and few people there. Still, if you want to lay out and get a tan while enjoying a drink this is the perfect place for it. It's hassle-free for the ladies, to boot.
So this particular Friday night started with a handful of "regulars" (familiar bantering with the DJ and bartenders), curious tourists and Spring Breakers popping in and cutting out, and couples hanging around to enjoy the wonderful evening.
I wasn't there for the music, but the DJ would move between stuff older folks would recognize to stuff for a younger crowd, then back again. It kept the floor bouncing with a varying crowd. It's not a big place, but it felt like a good crowd most of the night.
I took advantage of the clothing option and was enjoying a beer and rocking to the music while trying not to look too much like a wallflower.
So a (presumably) married woman, with the approval of her husband, asked ME to dance! So who was I to say no? While I'm dancing with her a young college girl joins in. So here I am dancing bare-[--] naked with two fun-loving ladies. This is living!
If you're into FUN, you'd be a fool not to give Garden of Eden a visit. The rest of you, enjoy the sunset at Mallory Square.
