Even in America, in August, it's time for outdoor parties. A starry sky, lots of good music and gastronomic specialties are the scenario that from the East to the West Coast brings together citizens and tourists in the cool evenings. City you go, tradition you find: each locality shows off its typical dishes; if you are a lover of good food and want to know the local tradition, my advice is to look for a party and let yourself be carried away by the flavors, smells, conversations and atmospheres that animate the evening. You will satisfy your senses and you will discover much more than you imagine about the city you are visiting.



If we find ourselves in the carefree Key West, in the beautiful Florida Keys, a must is a leap to Key West Lobsterfest, an annual festival that combines music and joy, fresh lobsters and drinks for all tastes.

The party starts on August 7th: if you love fish, sunset and good company, I would say that you cannot miss the inauguration of the three most summer days in Key West.

From 17 pm to 20 pm, each diner receives a dish that is reductive to define abundant: almost a kilo of fresh lobsters, shrimps, sausages, new potatoes and corn cobs, accompanied by salad and garlic bread. Obviously, the eye will also want its part and the panorama that the Sunset Tiki Bar & Grille offers will certainly not be less than the tasty dinner that we will have in front of us!

Participating in this party means delighting with unique flavors, but not only: if we want to immerse ourselves in the mood of Key West we can only join the walk on Friday 8 which, at the time of the suggestive sunset, unites hundreds of people on Duval Street.


Throughout Saturday 9, however, the city streets will be an en plein air museum with a rich display of artifacts and works of art by local artists, while between Duval & Greene Streets we will be able to appreciate sounds that are new to us with a free concert which sees a succession of unknown names on stage, but no less interesting: Alphonse, Bubba System, CoolBreeze and The DurtBags will be the artists who will perform, attracting fans and more.


The conclusion of the event will be very sweet, if we can book a table at Double Tree – Grand Key Resort: from the name we can understand the sumptuousness of the chosen location, a renowned luxury center at 360 degrees. If we can't afford a stay, brunch (about $ 50) at the end of the Key West Lobsterfest will be much more affordable. An adequate price for a menu for true connoisseurs (lobster, of course!): To give you a literal taste there will be lobster ravioli with crab cream, creamy lobster soup, lobster and crab paella, lobster lasagna ...


The event is of course very popular and, if you are on holiday in Miami, a visit here is a must, in fact they are just 3 hours away by car and you can appreciate Key West in all its facets: from the breathtaking views to the calm rhythms, from the culinary delicacies to the atmosphere full of colors and sounds that make the place crazy, but extremely fascinating at the same time.
