    I'd highly suggest taking your Kayak if at all possible. Also never underestimate the power of the chum bag. Also #2...never....ever....put a snapper on a stringer while wading. Don't ask me how I know this.

          Buffet? Did someone mention "buffet?" I'm always down for a good buffet....especially a seafood buffet....right up there with a good Chinese buffet.

          I'll defer to EG as to whether we should stop there. He's the coordinator for all things food and beverage on this adventure.

          I plugged it in the Googler...and seems it's just opened back up after a fire a few years ago.

            Anybody else got any "must see" restaurants in the Keys? Chances are we've already sampled most of them...but open for suggestions.

                    ....and don't forget the guy who urinated on himself and staggered over while I was pumping gas....begging for money....at 4:30am.

                    Yup....it comes highly recommended by EG.

                    On another note....the brown-truck-full-of-goodness, stopped by the crib today.

                        Garden of Eden if you "must see" cocktails. In all seriousness, croissants de france is my go to hangover breakfast place.

                          Thanks Skunked....but that's sounds a bit high-class for four rednecks from Georgia.

                            Getting cudas from the kayak will be something else. You can stand on that outback while fishing if you have decent balance. There is a foam block for weight support in between the seat and center hatch. But I'd recommend sitting down once you hook up

                              GaJohn, we have had a blast with the Cuda's from the yak the past couple of trips. This year will focus on getting some on the fly rods as well. Our preferred method has been to let EG double lip hook a cuda so that it takes him a while to get the fish free. The ensuing commotion allows Drifter to cast at the nosy lemon sharks hanging around trying to see what EG is up to.

                              EG can be heard off camera questioning our common sense......

                                Good idea

                                The Garden of Eden is a delightful family friendly place . Don't go there unless you're into that sort of thing.
                                Breakfast at Blue Heaven, dinner at Cafe Marquesa or Azul in Key West. Mrs Mac's kitchen in Key largo for the best Hogfish in the Keys.
                                No Name in Big Pine Key and the Square Grouper in Sugarloaf for dinner.
                                People urinating on themselves in the Keys is not news worthy.
                                If you time it right there is a fun party in Islamorada during the Full moon. It's held at Morada Bay http://moradabay.com/full-moon-party/.
                                Checkout MEAT in Islamorada for lunch. It seems crazy but their burger is pretty insane http://www.meateatery.com/
                                Check it out.
