Not just "Another Day in Paradise" at the home bar of the Southernmost Coconut Castaways, Smokin' Tuna Saloon. Doors will open at 5:30 pm, so get there early to get a good table. Mix and mingle with friends, grab a seat, and enjoy the music of Mike Nash starting at 6:00 pm.
There will be a 50/50 raffle to get our KOA Care Camp donation started. Wear your club lanyard since you will not have your event credentials yet. And don't forget your TOES! This will be your first opportunity to get your turquoise on
(2-for-1 concierge cards cannot be used during this special event.)

To get you into an "Island State of Mind" join us at a new venue for us, Rick's/Durty Harry's. Music by Jesse Rice will start at 6:00 pm, and again, wear your club lanyard to get access.
    There will be great music, great friends and a great venue! Plan to grab a bite to eat before or after, or get a pizza from Angelina's and bring into Rick's/Durty Harry's.



Time to "Check In" and get serious about your search for paradise. We'll be set up poolside from Noon to 2:30 pm at the beautiful Oceans Edge Resort & Marina. Come pick up your credentials and goodie bag, and complimentary welcome beverage ticket, then stick around and enjoy music by a Club favorite, Ericson Holt.
If you can't make it during check in, please arrange for someone to get your items for you. Let us know who is picking them up.You'll need your wristbands for the rest of the events.

The evening will start off with "Howie's Happy Hour" at the Key West Theater, 5:00-6:00 pm. This is an invitation only  "thank you" party for our generous and amazing sponsors without whom, there wouldn't be a Meet Me In The Keys!



Oh,"What a Party" it's going to be at the official kick-off of Meet Me in The Keys 2019 at the Key West Theater.
We welcome back a trio of fan favorites, Jimi Pappas, John Patti and "Sunny Jim" White, along with former members of The Big Bamboo Band. They will be joining together as the Tropicool Allstars.
     Wear your most
COOL TROPICAL ATTIRE--flowered shirts and grass skirts--you might even get “lei’d” at the door! 
Doors will open at 6:00 pm, with appetizers provided as part of your registration, as well as cash bars. 
This is a private event so you must have your MMITK wristband.

Yes, we know you likely will have partied too much the night before, hence the name! This is our fun little "walk" benefiting KOA Care Camps. Captain Josh will be waiting to entertain us at this year's surprise destination. Meet at 8:30 am Friday morning in the lobby of the Oceans Edge Resort for Bloody Marys and a group photo before we take off.
Here's more information on collecting pledges from your friends!


This pool party promises to be a great time. You can "Pour Me a Vacation" with The Detentions from Noon to 3:00 pm. If you've not yet seen them, you are in for a treat.
After the long and strenuous walk, change into your swimsuits, grab your sunscreen and find your spot by (or in!) one of the Oceans Edge Pools. It will be 3 hours of non-stop fun!
     Chinese Raffle and Silent Auction will be set up poolside, with 100% going to KOA Care Camps. 

THE MAIN EVENT!! This Saturday night, attendees-only party at the San Carlos Institute is always a crowd pleaser. If you’ve never seen Howard and his Mile Marker 24 Band in this intimate venue, you are in for a treat at his "Backside of Paradise" show.
     While we sooooo appreciate your buying and wearing the latest Castaways and Howie apparel, we thought it would be fun to see some of the oldies again. So dig through the bottoms of your closets and drawers and proudly wear, once again, your favorite old  Howie or Castaways shirt or hat.

Grab some dinner before the show, but cocktails will be available by donation, with 100% going to KOA Care Camps, so bring cash!! ​Doors will open approximately 6:00 pm (Key West Time!).



"One of These Days," the party has to end, and today is the day we wrap up Meet Me in The Keys 2019 with a private show just for our attendees with Thom Shepherd and Coley McCabe at First Flight Restaurant & Brewery (formerly Kelly's). Doors open at 8:30 am. There won't be a bad seat in the house so find one you like, grab your beverage, sit back and enjoy listening to the stories and songs.
The bar will be open for whatever you need, as well as an awesome breakfast buffet. Then, it will be time to say goodbye to our friends until next year.
