Phil Peterson’s 39th Key West Poker Run

By Lulu

Every year in September the Peterson’s Harley turns into the start up point for a 5 card stop to Key West. If you haven’t ridden in this one you should put it on your calendar for next year. Not only is it a wild and crazy weekend, it also raises money for the Diabetes Research Institute and the Key West Sunrise Rotary Club. AND you might win a Harley! This year the stops included Gilbert’s Resort & Tiki Bar in Key Largo, Lorelei at mile marker 82, The Island Fish Company in Marathon, Boondocks in Ramrod Key and the final stop Conch Republic in Key West. As usual, we always have a few stops of our own along the way which includes a visit to Robbie’s to watch the tarpon feeding.

Once in Key West the festivities kick right in. Our first night in town Deb that rode down with us won $100 bucks at a Hot Biker Chick contest at a party at Southernmost .The Big Bike Riders’ Bike Show attracts a wonderful collection of bikes and bike builders that make Duval St. turn into a fascinating mix of bikes and people, including Downtown Baggers with their fabulous creations. Irish Kevin’s, Sloppy Joe’s and Wild Bill’s are full of bikers enjoying their favorite libations. Saturday night the Hard Rock on Duval put on a bikini contest and concert featuring the AC/DC tribute band, Highway to Hell. Our gang also enjoyed the tattoo contest at Schooner Wharf and listened to a great blues singer Lauren Smoken Band. And we always make time for a trip to Mallory Square. The trip home is long, but Micah and I look forward to next September and our visit to the Keys.
