CASTmembers of the Year

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

We are really lucky to have a super team of folks that we work with every day. Each January, at our first CAST meeting of the year, we recognize our the outstanding folks in each of our departments. In addition to each department award the entire CAST of the Old Town Trolley votes for one person who they feel is the CASTmember of the year. Congratulations to all of our deserving winners!  A extra big thanks to Charlie Bauer and the folks at Smokin’ Tuna who hosted the event!

2013 Key West Food and Wine Festival

2013 Key West Food and Wine Festival

This year in addition to being a sponsor of the Key West Food and Wine Festival, our CEO, Chris Belland, Director of Key West Operations Linda Test and Marketing Director Piper Smith took part in one of festival’s competitions, the Seafood Shakedown, as Los Camerones (The Shrimps). Armed with 20 pounds of shrimp, teams must create a dish using the shrimp that feeds 100 people. Los Camerones stepped up to the challenge and created three mouthwatering paella’s filled with not only the required shrimp but calamari, lobster, clams, mussels, and mahi-mahi. Missing first place by just a single vote, they vowed to come back next year!

Mallory Square

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Tift
Did you know that even before Sunset Celebration Mallory Square has been the hub of activity in Key West for over 150 years? Mallory Square or Mallory Docks as it was known in the olden days was where all of the cargo and wrecking vessels unloaded. Located next to the docks were master wrecker Asa Tift’s warehouses where he kept the bounty of wrecks he salvaged along with his ice house that provided ice to the island’s residents.

Today of course, Tift’s warehouse and ice house are still with us. One is the Shell Warehouse and the other is next door and the former home of the Key West Chamber of Commerce. We think if Asa Tift were around today, Mallory Square would not seem so foreign to him! Except of course, his bust in the Key West Historical Memorial Sculpture Garden.

The Lucas Theatre!

The Lucas Theatre!

Did you know that Arthur Lucas kept track of the wedding, birth, and birthday announcements that appeared in the Savannah paper? Being the brilliant marketer he was, his namesake theatre has been a favorite location for viewing various films, shows, and concerts for more than 40 years!
