Benefit for the Xena Fund

Want some feel-good charity points to go along with your Friday drink specials? How about a happy hour held at local favorite The BottleCap Groove Lounge (trust us when we say that their happy hours are the stuff of legends) with proceeds to benefit The Xena Fund, a local charity that seeks to shorten the gap between quality veterinary care and those who can pay for it by providing funds to cover emergency pet care for all animals in Key West and the Lower Keys. The Xena Fund uses the funds it raises to pay veterinarians who donate their services to animals in distress, in addition to paying for annual visits to the vet and any preventative medications and annual vaccinations that pets might need.

Tonight at 5:00pm you’re invited to take advantage of drink specials and a 50/50 raffle, as well as a special drag show by 801 icons Deja and Desiray, who will be donating their skills both behind the bar and in front of it! Why not make The BottleCap Groove Lounge the first stop on your Friday night bar crawl? Even if Fido is safe at home, you can bet he’ll appreciate the gesture.

The BottleCap Groove Lounge is located at 1128 Simonton Street, Key West, FL, 33040. For more information on The Xena Fund, visit www.xenafund.com

Dive In Movie: Harold and Maude

Here in Key West we’re more likely to head to the “Dive In” than the “Drive In” movie theatre– and tonight they’re showing one of our favorites! Head over to our neighbor, Ibis Bay, to catch “Harold and Maud,” the 1971 cult classic that chronicles the relationship between an elderly woman and her friend, a young boy with some serious issues surrounding death. The movie begins at 8:00pm, we’ll see you there!

Ibis Bay is located at 3101 N. Roosevelt Blvd, Key West, FL,33040, United States (Close enough to Parrot Key to walk!)
