It’s a Monday night in Key West, which means you could head down to Duval St. and get lost in the crowds, stop by Mallory Square for Sunset Festival…or you could swing by the Tropic Cinema for one of their classic movies! Tonight we’ll be doing the latter.
Why not grab some popcorn and catch a Coen Brothers comedy at the Tropic tonight? “Raising Arizona,” the 1987 cult classic that has since been rated one of The American Film Institute’s funniest movies, stars Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter as a couple who would do just anything to have a child. With John Goodman and Frances McDormand rounding out an all-star cast, this film is one for the ages.
“Raising Arizona” at the Tropic Cinema, located at 416 Eaton St., tonight at 7:00.
Pull out the sunblock and pack your beach bag — it’s going to be a hot one! This week is going to be perfect for catching some rays at Fort Zachary Taylor or catching up on your reading by one of the pools at Parrot Key. Highs in the 80′s with nighttime lows not far behind, this is prime flip-flop & tank-top weather. Why not take the kids down to Flamingo Crossing for a homemade ice cream (a local’s favorite) or zip on over to the White Street Fishing Pier and enjoy the breezes coming off the water? If the sun gets to be too much, head into the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory to take a rest and enjoy an oasis off Duval’s hustle and bustle. Don’t forget to stay hydrated and load up on that SPF…nothing throws a wrench into vacation plans like a scorching sunburn! And remember: Sunset Celebration, Key West’s nightly arts & music celebration, is happening every night over at Mallory Square.
Have a wonderful week!
