Cheeseburger in Paradise

Remember Jimmy Buffett's "Cheeseburger in Paradise"?

It was written about the cheeseburgers at the Dennis Pharmacy at 1229 Simonton Street--just two blocks from my office.

It's gone, at least for now. Dennis Pharmacy is being transformed into Marine Bank. Pics of Dennis Pharmacy in mid 2006 and this past week are attached for those who care.

There was a recent article in the Key West Citizen stating that the Dennis Pharmacy is looking for a new place of operation. Stay posted.

Not according to Jimmy! It was written under a water tower on an island in the keys, close to Key West. Thus the use of a water tower at the entrance to every Cheeseburger In Paradise restaurant that he is part owner of along with OSI and Margaritaville Holdings

I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI.
