And it’s no trouble to make a double, just press down once on the Drink Strength switch and out comes a “strong pour.”

To set it up, just fill the four tanks with liquor (rum, vodka or tequila), cranberry juice, orange juice & sour mix. The machine knows what to do from there.

  • Digital display shows the ingredients of each drink. The center wheel guides the display and the center button dispenses the drink. Just don’t forget a cup!
  • I Feel Lucky button is like a Vegas roulette wheel, press the button and the display will spin. The machine will randomly land a drink. If you like the drink press the center button and the drink will be mixed up in seconds. Again, just don’t forget the cup!

What does stolen treasure, Cuban secret police and Jimmy Buffett’s old plane have in common?

All are part of the major plotline of Key West writer John H. Cunningham’s latest Buck Reilly Adventure—GREEN TO GO.

Cunningham will host a series of signings in Key West during Meeting of the Minds “Meet the Authors” Event from November 1-3:

MOTM 2012 SIGNING SCHEDULE:
11/1: 9-11, 1-3, 5-7 at Casa Marina
11/2: 9-10:30 at Casa Marina
11/2: 1-3at Smokin’ Tuna Saloon (4 Charles Street) with authors Michael Haskins and Andrew Forsyth
11/3: 11-1 at Casa Marina

Locals have come to love John H. Cunningham and the Buck Reilly Adventure Series, which includes RED RIGHT RETURN and GREEN TO GO (Green Street Publishing; $3.99 eBook).

In GREEN TO GO, good news turns bad fast, and the bad just keeps coming…The unexpected contents of his parent’s Swiss bank account offers Buck Reilly a chance to dig himself out of the hole he’s been in since the recession hit, but first he must recover the treasure maps and clues he lost at sea. Those plans get put on hold when a friend is accused of orchestrating the biggest theft in Key West’s sordid history, and the FBI uses Buck’s past against him to demand that he search for the thieves who fled aboard a hundred year-old schooner.

No good deed goes unpunished, and Buck’s dogged by greed and double-crosses from Key West to the Bahamas and points south. His hunt for the missing treasure pits him against a crazed mercenary, Peruvian rebels, rogue Cuban Secret Police and a beautiful woman torn between turning Buck over to the authorities or succumbing to his easy charm.

If you love John D. MacDonald, Clive Cussler, Tom Corcoran, Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiaasen, Buck’s faults, quirks, humanity and heroics will appeal to you. Cunningham’s clever, thrill-seeking mysteries will leave you guessing.

For locals, you’ll hear a lot about famed Key West locales – Blue Heaven, La Concha Hotel, Pepe’s, Margaritaville and others.

Registration has opened for The Barefoot Islands Cruise which will sail March 16-23, 2013 to the Caribbean Islands you’ve heard Jimmy Buffett sing about- Anguilla, St. Barts, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Nevis, and Virgin Gorda. The custom itinerary allows passengers extended time to hangout ashore at famous beach bars such as Foxy’s, Sunshine’s, The Soggy Dollar, and The Dune Preserve. At most anchorages the ship will stay until late evening or overnight.

Plenty of live music onboard and ashore! Enjoy performances throughout the week from a special ensemble of tropical beach rock musicians featuring Scott Nickerson, founder of Parrot Heads in Paradise, as well as special sessions with well known local musicians.
The cruise is a full charter of the luxury ship Wind Surf of Windstar Cruises. With a capacity of only 312 passengers it will be a great way to get together with fellow Parrot Heads without the hassle and crowds of a large ship with 2,500 passengers or more. The casual atmosphere includes open seated dining (no reservations or seating assignments) with options to dine outside on-deck. Windstar Cruises, voted Condé Nast Traveler “Top Small-Ship Cruise Line”, continues to provide top-of-the-line service and amenities as a fleet wide $18 million refurbishment.

Rates begin at $1,899pp with items such as onboard watersports, ground transportation, and soft beverages (bottled water, sodas, coffees, espressos, smoothies, etc.) included. Register before March 23, 2012 and save $200. Additional discounts if you refer friends.

This will be a unique sail through some beautiful small islands and harbors normally only visited by smaller yachts. A perfect opportunity to sit back on a white sand beach with a boat drink and good friends. Presented by Local Knowledge. See website for details: BarefootIslandsCruise.com.

Note: Jimmy Buffett is not participating in or associated with this event.
