Learn About Key West
Tour Captains, Fishermen and Pirates
The Key West Bar Zen Contest for
bartenders and wait staff has ended after six weeks of active entries.
Gary Uhl of the Green Parrot was presented with the $100.00 prize for the
most usable submissions selected for the new book. Leigh Pujado of
Schooner Wharf submitted the second most used entries and Chris Robinson
of Louie's Afterdeck took the third place position. Over thirty
establishments and several hundred entries were recorded with 30
Bartenders or Wait Staff making the final cut.
Each of the contestants quoted in the
project receive a free book from the first edition printing due by August
2003. Next year's contest will raise the
prize money to $300.00 with a $150.00 second place and $75.00 third place
in what hopes to be an ongoing tradition for Key West. Intended for
visitors of Key West the 100 page book made with bar boaster covers will
feature both wisdom and wit of Key West locals. The book will be
available on the internet as well in traditional outlets. The authors are
providing 5% of the net sales income to support the efforts of local
charities including Reef Relief.
The writers, next intend to
capture the stories of those who work on or near the ocean as tour
captains, fishermen, or pirates.
