We drove over 2,000 miles to get here, just to eat "The World's Greatest Cheese Burgers" and "The World's Greatest Key Lime Pie"! The place we were looking for was called "Kutchie's Key West Kutcharitaville Cafe'." We were told at the Chamber of Commerce, that Key West didn't have a place called "Kutcharitaville Cafe'." What a disappontment That Was for our whole group.
They reccomended we try Margaritaville over on Duval Street. What a Bummer that place was! We walked down the street a ways to the Bull & Whistle Bar, there we met "Yankee Jack" the "Music Legend". Jack told us that "Kutchie Pelaez", who has Kutcharitaville, is a friend of his and that Kutcharitaville Cafe is located up in the Carolina Mountains. Jack told us that he didn't know, just how we got so turned around by thinking that Kutchie's Cafe' really was in Key West. Jack also said that others often come down to Key West looking for Kutcharitaville. He just laughed and said that it was always great for his business! Yankee Jack bought us all a round of beers and gave his some of his T-Shirts and some CD-S. What a Super guy he was, He made our Trip Worthwhile. Jack told us to walk on down Duval St. until we get to Green St. and make the turn on Green to Captain Tony's Saloon, he said that Kutchie and Captain Tony have been friends since "Way back When", way before he ever came to Key West. Thanks Jack! Well we met "The Great Captain Tony", what a charcter he is. He told us stories about Mel Fisher, Kutchie Pelaez and Jimmy Buffett as well as other characters back-in the Day in Key West. Tony said that the Whole Group had pretty much became Legends in their own wright. My opinion is that if anyone deserves to be "The Legend" that the Legend is "Captain Tony".
Well the trip wasn't a total washout, we did learn a lot of important information and met some Great People. Next time though, we will do some better homework and find "The Real Kutcharitaville Cafe'." So Kutchie, if you ever read this, keep making those Famous Cheese Burgers and that "World's Greatest Key Lime Pie", cause were heading there in the near future.
