β€œit blew the color right out of the world.” Last week, sitting sweltering in Miami in a home with no power, waiting for the Keys to be re-openened to residents, I slid Peter Matthiessen's Killing Mister Watson off the bookshelf.
Fittingly, the opening chapter, besides belying the title, describes the scene one week after the great hurricane of October 1910 wreaked havoc in the Ten Thousand Islands region of the southwestern Florida coast and wasted Chokoloskee.
Days later, as I drove through the devastated, broken lower keys and viewed the startlingly eerie monochromatic landscape first hand, I recalled vividly one of Matthiessen's descriptions of the landscape his settlers surveyed in the days after their storm: β€œit blew the color right out of the world.”

As a small, no-cover venue at the end of the road, the Green Parrot seems to be punching above its weight yet again as funk-fusion heavyweights Kung Fu wrap up a challenging all-Steely Dan afternoon set, with intricacies and levels of musicianship that left some of Key West's finest musicians shaking their heads.
They're back tonight for two more inspired jaw-dropping sets at 9 and 11.#kungfu #greenparrotsoundcheck #steelydan #greenparrotbar #keywestmusic #kungfutunes#punchingaboveourweight #kidcharlemagne #bodhisattva #blackcow #fez#greenearings #peg#monkeyinyoursoul #aja#josie#goldteeth #fm#kingoftheworld #igotthenews #myoldschool #reelingintheyears

We were having a few more thoughts on the Green Parrot Halloween That just passed and we're reflecting again on the figures crafted by Coast Projects for the Parrot's facade.
Images we said, of a few of the folks who have made The Parrot the amazing, inspiring one-of-a-kind place it remains today.
And again we want to give some serious props to Judy Sullivan, in the red hat, the only woman pictured here, the young, determined, ahead-of-her-time woman who came to Key West from Detroit in the late sixties and bought the bunker-like submarine-sailor's bar know as The Brown Derby, promptly blew out the windows and installed open-air shutters, tossed the AC out for ceiling fans, commissioned a bartender to paint Smirk, the first piece of art to adorn the walls that up to that point, save beer ads, only contained a bullet-riddled snow shovel and Hemingway portrait with a trickle of blood oozing from the corner of his mouth. And and when it became clear the Navy exodus was under way and was being by replaced by an influx of hippies looking for cheap rent and abundant weed Judy ran an open-to-close special of 4 shots of tequila for a dollar that helped create what Playboy magazine described at the time as one of the "great freak-bars in America.
We would like to mention that, sadly, Judy passed recently and we just want to thank her again.
We will talk more about the other figures on the facade in the days to come and we invite anyone with stories to tell or photos to share, please do.
And we need to always remember that we are all standing on their shoulders.#greenparrotbar #keywest#brownderby#keywestpeople #keywesthistoryarchives #keywesthistory#keywesthippies #keywestnavy#submariners@norasulli

We want to thank Ken Foster from Camden, Maine for being part of our inaugural Drink and Draw last week. Ken is a truly skilled watercolorist. who uses his sketchbook to chronicle his travels. here's is his finished drawing from that night as it appears on his Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/ken.foster.146
I think he captured the vibe and spirit of our little corner saloon wonderfully. Thanks, Ken.
