Lower Keys

Chamber hosts holiday party

The Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Christmas party from 6-10 p.m. Dec. 19 at Boondocks Grille & Drafthouse on Ramrod Key.

The gathering begins with a cocktail party and cash bar at 6 p.m. with a sit-down dinner at 7.

Entrees include a choice of a half rack of ribs with a jumbo lump crabcake, a double smoked in-house apple-wood ham, or a crab-crusted yellowtail topped with crab stuffing and drizzled with a creamy sherry sauce.

Reservations are required, and the cost is $30 per person.

Call the chamber at 305-872-2411 to make reservations, or for more information.


Boutique moves to Greene Street

Deja Vu clothing boutique is moving from the 600 block of Duval Street to 511 Greene St., and will host a grand opening Dec. 14.

"After one year at our location at 608 Duval St., we have decided to move closer to the tourist areas of Key West," said owner Stephanie Carter.

Formerly the Steel Horse Saloon, the newly renovated building has been split into three different retail spaces. The 1,500-square-foot space, decorated with a boho-chic flair, offers exclusive designer lines such as Judith March, Custom Deja Vu, MADE in the Deep South and HOBO.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. They are also offering a locals discount of 20% off all transactions made in December.


Festival gives proceeds

The first Annual Key West Health and Happiness Festival, which featured several local alternative health care practitioners, recently donated proceeds from the event to Unity of the Keys Spiritual Center.

Unity offers ongoing classes and meetings, including A Course in Miracles, Yoga, AA, Overeaters Anonymous, and Life Transitions Bereavement Group.
