Taxidermy Update or “Stefan We Hardly Knew Ye”Posted On:
The African Blue Fronted Amazon now hanging in the bar was donated to us by John and Lee Mitchell of West Virginia.
Stefan was John’s beloved pet since he was hatched in 1977, which, coincidentally, was also the year John first set foot in the Green Parrot Bar while visiting Key West on Spring Break.
Stefan succumbed to the flu in 1999 at the tender age of 23. John subsequently had Stefan stuffed and mounted.
John, a former West Virginia Senator has visited our island city and our bar every year since 1977and considers The Green Parrot Bar “the finest bar in America”.
Given all that, John felt our friendly confines were an appropriate repository for his hansomely-feathered friend. We concur and thank both John and Lee and will continue to keep a few bottles of George Dickel Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky on the shelf for their annual visit.
