Bone Island 6-Mile Paddle Race, Lazy Dog Key West This weekend!

I’m not sure if you’re as cold as I am, but the thought of Key West sounds amazing to me right now—especially when facing down the 12+ feet of snow or freezing cold rain we’ve had in the past few weeks. In North Carolina, we’ve had so much rain, they’re looking to pass a bill to create an ark. A few things to remember about Key West: It’s warm. Really warm. Like board shorts and bikinis, cruiser bikes, and fruity fishbowl drinks. (We highly recommend the 007 at the Tree Bar and the Caliente Cucumber at Agave.) And this weekend, you could be paddling in the warm water and relaxing with the Lazy Dogs in Key West.
