Tales from Paradise

I received an invitation from a friend who had just moved to Key West the previous month to visit Cayo Hueso . I jumped at the chance to escape the concrete jungle of the mainland.

Tippy’s Drink of the Week

The Mango Tango

This tropical head banger goes down smooth and comes with a rum punch.

  • 1/4 Package Frozen Mango Pulp
  • 1/3 Tube Frozen Lime Aid
  • Lots of Rum (use 151 proof to activate the “Lost Weekend” option)
  • Dash of Chambord
  • Lots of Ice

Put it all in a blender and let it rip. Serve with bamboo cocktail umbrellas for full effect. It’s good and good for you.


James Bond walking outside studios

Hey, that’s James Bond (aka Timothy Dalton) walking past our studio in “License to Kill”.  The movie, while getting kind of dated, has some great scenes of Key West. We know one conch who still talks of being an extra “henchman” in the filming. OK, it’s not Sean Connery walking by our building, but beggars can’t be choosers.
