Fantasy Fest draws crowds to the Florida Keys from all over the world for what is one of the largest parties on the Key West calendar. Of course, all that fun can take a toll, so the “Back to Reality” dinner is our way of making the transition back to real life a little less painful. This free event features fish chowder, chili, bread and pie; all made from scratch by Joan and Shirley right here at the BPKFL.
For this year’s event, we had Rob Lancaster on the bar, Brian and Joan Gladwell serving the chowder and chili, and Shirley handing out the pies. For those who have taken part in the Fantasy Fest festivities, there’s nothing like a little comfort food to make it easier to head home. For our early-arriving winter guests, the Back to Reality dinner is the first social gathering of our winter season. Whatever your reason for being here, this is a great chance to get together, and an even better way to miss the Sunday traffic that is leaving the Keys after Fantasy Fest. Check out all the fun we had!
