Party number one away from Lake Kegonsa–about two days after the opening of Dante’s, the conch harbor Tike bar.

Daryl, the long-haired, always-toasted owner became our best buddy for the next five years. Ken always receives Key West local drink rates at Dante’s!

Blackhawk came solo, picked up George, a terrific player, at Dante’s, and formed the party band.
